A glamorous Danversport Yacht Club wedding

“Once in awhile, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale.”

It’s 2009 at the Danversport Yacht Club. A few hundred high school seniors exit their limos sporting suits, gowns, and boutonnieres. Courtney & Mark, who had already been dating for a few years, spend their prom dancing the night away with all their friends before going away to college. Seven years later, they returned to that very ballroom to celebrate their marriage. 

The sun was blazing at a scorching 96 degrees on August 14th. Courtney, accompanied by all her best friends dressed in blush, slipped into her wedding gown that would hold all her butterflies in. She wore her mother’s garter, and wrapped a piece of her mother’s wedding gown around her colorful bouquet. Mark and his boys got ready a few houses down, as he opened a gift and card from his wife-to-be. 

Mark couldn’t help but shed a tear as Courtney walked down the aisle. They both said “I do” and hopped on a white trolley to Danversport Yacht Club. Grand chandeliers and gold and white details lined the ballroom - the space looked like a palace for for a new king and queen.

Courtney & Mark are loving, caring, and incredibly thoughtful. Thoughtful enough that I sat at a real table with real guests - nothing makes me feel appreciated and loved like being treated like a guest! Wishing you both the happiest marriage that is so full of love, you have extra to give to others.

Thank you to all the amazing vendors!

A nautical inspired Danversport Yacht Club wedding

"As the ocean is never full of water, so is the heart never full of love."

Jillian & Daniel’s love for each other as deep as the ocean and unwavering as a strong ship at sea. After meeting online years ago, and enlisting the help of her sister to make sure Dan wasn’t a murderer, the two fell for each other quickly and passionately. They survived months of long distance halfway across the country after getting engaged, and were finally and happily reunited before their wedding. They love learning and teaching, holding hands at the beach, and hunting for vintage antiques. Jill loves the classic look of pearls and everything teal, and Dan is a proud papa to his beloved puppy child. 

The clouds on their wedding day looked a bit dark and full of rain, yet the rain never came that night. They exchanged rings and vows by the ocean in front of a beautiful, floral covered gazebo in front of their closest friends and family. There wasn’t a straight face in the room during the humorous toasts, and the DJ knew exactly how to keep the party going strong all night. Even 95-year-old Grampie was busting moves on the dance floor. Their two families became one, and the newlyweds couldn’t have been happier before jetting off to their European honeymoon.

To Jill & Dan - you both are an inspiration for how to love, how to be thoughtful, and how to be kind. Wishing you two the best years of your life - every one spent together.

Thank you to all the wonderful vendors!

Stacey & David // A contemporary Ipswich Country Club wedding

"I love you, not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you, not only for what you have made of yourself but for what you are making of me."

Stacey & David: a bit of sparkle, a lot of love. I have never met a bride that has been so pleasant to work with. And by pleasant, I mean THE SWEETEST, kindest, most grateful, upbeat person you would want to be around. Anyone who has had the pleasure of meeting her comes to the realization that choosing her to be his wife was a no brainer for David. They are patient, they are kind, and their love can be felt from across the room.

Stacey, surrounded by her best girlfriends and her family, excitedly got her hair and makeup done. The buzz in the room was electric. Stacey's mother and maid of honor assisted her in putting her dress on in a separate room, and surprised her bridesmaids with a big reveal. Her dress was the right amount of modern sparkle and vintage lace - and it was stunning. They took their vows standing inside a heart shaped arrangement of rose petals in the shade at Ipswich Country Club. The ceremony was heartfelt and beautiful, and performed by one of the wittiest officiants - Gary Fine. They excitedly sealed their love with a kiss before they rode off into the sunset in a golf cart for portraits.

The best part: the party. The reception room was dazzling to say the least, with a brilliant palette of purples showcased around the room. The party never stopped: her guests brought their A game, and so did the AMAZING DJ! They let sparks fly during their grand sparkler exit, leaving everyone with a smile on their faces.

Stacey & David, seeing you two surrounded by your most cherished guests on your day was incredible. I know you'll have the most loving and enjoyable marriage! Stay young at heart, even when you've developed a few wrinkles and some grey hairs. 

Thank you to all the vendors!
