They’re getting married at the Belfry Inn in Sandwich next month, and they just LOVE the Cape so much that they wanted to prance around the beach before anyone was awake so celebrate getting married (and to get photos with their actual true love, Polly the pup!)

A Popponesset Inn wedding on Cape Cod

 
 

Kelly & Dan are true New Yorkers, and very much in love with the city where they built their life together. Kelly is the master of NYC sunset skyline photos, and Dan is the head chef of their kitchen. They love taking long walks on the river, sharing drinks at the pier at happy hour, jetting off to new places (especially if they’re in Europe or involve a beach / pool) and good old Netflix marathons on their couch at home. Dan proposed underneath the Staple Street bridge in Manhattan, where they returned for their engagement photos last summer!

On a perfect 70 degree summer Friday, Kelly & Dan took happy hour to a new level with all their family and friends gathered at the Popponesset Inn in Mashpee on Cape Cod. Kelly wore her grandmother’s earrings, a new necklace from Dan, her mother’s blue sapphire ring, and borrowed a diamond bracelet from Dan’s mom. They read letters to each other back to back on the beach right before they turned around to see each other for their first look. Their ceremony was short and sweet just as they wanted it to be, then spent the night eating cupcakes (with their adorable catchphrase Mc2 on them - McDonough x McNichol), dancing with their besties, and grabbing late night bites of french fries!

FedEx came with a very joyful surprise last week... the Summer 2017 edition of The Knot national print magazine!

All of a sudden, gracing a FULL PAGE was Stephanie & John!!!! Cue the screaming.

A champagne & sparkler Cape Cod engagement

A few years ago, Stephanie fell for John... no, really - she tripped over his foot.

After persistently asking for Stephanie's phone number three times afterwards, she gave him her email address - you know, just in case. They began to exchange love letters in the weeks following, and before they knew it, they were in love. As Stephanie says, "We had so much in common, yet we are still so different, from the very start. I am a very detail-oriented, Type A, future-oriented person. John is more laidback, spontaneous and always cracking me up even when I am stressed. We balance each other out." John proposed to her in a vineyard in Rhode Island in May, and they're so excited to get married!

Stephanie & John's dream engagement shoot took place at John's family's home on Cape Cod. This beach front beauty was built from the ground up in 1951 by John's grandfather - how amazing! We started with pizza, took a walk around the charming neighborhood, and then popped champagne on the beach and lit some sparklers to conclude the night. Amazing is an understatement!

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!
