“To be fully seen by somebody, then, and be loved anyhow - this is a human offering that can border on miraculous.”

Andrea & Dan are one of the most amazing couples I’ve ever met. I met the pair at Dan’s sister Stacy & Chris’s wedding last June - they had been dating for four years at the time, and a few months later in November, Dan proposed to Andrea on their first vacation to Disney World!!! *Insert Disney loving squeal here* They love going to the movies, taking trips into Boston to the theater, and leaving Italian restaurants with very full bellies. 

They planned to be married at the end of October, but Dan’s father’s brain cancer returned aggressively, so on a Wednesday, Dan called me up and told me they were getting married on that Saturday. Boy, was I glad that I was available. In three days time, Andrea bought a wedding dress, shoes, and jewelry, booked the church and reception at Seaglass Restaurant, got a marriage license and floral bouquets, Dan got his first suit, his sister did Andrea’s makeup, brother-in-law did videography, and the whole family gathered together for a very special and emotional wedding.

Andrea & Dan are so loving, grateful, humble, and put family above everything. Their happiness and optimism radiated on their warm, breezy May wedding day. Their marriage has certainly been blessed, and I wish the both of them the happiest life together. To Andrea, to Dan, and to family.

Kristin & Eric // An intimate Cape Cod wedding

"True love is the joy of life."

On this beautiful Sunday, I finally met Kristin on her big day. Cool as a cucumber and full of smiles, she presented me with a ball jar full of Skittles when I walked into her bridal suite. I’ve never been so surprised in my life! Thoughtful doesn’t even begin to describe Miss K. She sure found a perfect partner, though - Eric. With their love of running, the beach and going on adventures together, Kristin & Eric are the perfect fit.

The Cape Cod ocean breeze was refreshing as the sun beamed down on these two, as they pronounced their love in front of their closest family and a few friends. They tied the knot (literally, joining their hands) and ran off to the beach, hiking up her dress to wiggle her toes in the sand. Their reception was full of laughs and tears - and some of the most impressive dance moves I’ve ever seen! I can’t say enough about their guests, too - so hospitable, kind, and loving - they made me feel like family, and it was the first time meeting them! What a special group of people that Kristin & Eric are so lucky to call family. 

K&E, I can’t wait to follow all your adventures as husband and wife. May your love grow over the years, and your laughter even more.

Thank you to all the wonderful vendors!
