We spent a sunny day in March with this sweet couple in Salem, MA (Where Andrew and I met when we were both at Salem State). We love the chance to shoot in Salem as there are so many lovely venues in the area. This wedding the ceremony was at the Immaculate Conception Church with the reception just a quick walk at the Salem Waterfront Hotel. Below are some of our favorite images from the day!
It was a lovely day in March, not too chilly, so the girls walked from the hotel to the church. While waiting for the ceremony to start one of the flower girls (who was Meghan’s niece) was a little pouty. I thought it was a cute moment. The bride was telling her that she couldn’t wait for her wedding day so she could pay her back and be pouty. I absolutely love this image from the ceremony. Immaculate Conception is such a pretty church, very light and airy.
After the ceremony we had just a handful of minutes for some photos because another wedding was scheduled. We quickly got through all our family portraits and then made our way back to the Salem Waterfront Hotel. It was the middle of the day with barely a cloud in the sky so we found this little patio on the side of the hotel for portraits. After finishing up with the wedding party we made our way behind the hotel for some more portraits. We wanted to head on over to where the Friendship is docked but the bride had already done some research and knew the masts were down.After finishing up portraits we had a bit of time to capture all the details of the reception before the guests came into the room. The nautical theme was found throughout the room, in all the details. I love capturing the first dance and parents dances. It allows for so many sweet moments. After all the formalities were done it was time for dancing. I won’t lie, I was a little worried that the dance floor would be empty because it was a daytime reception. Boy were we wrong! Meghan and Matt’s family and friends had the dance floor filled till the end of the reception. The wedding finished up right after sunset. We took Meghan and Matt outside for one last photo before heading home for the evening!
Thank you so much for letting us capture your wedding day! It was a day filled with love and you are such a sweet couple. We wish you many years of happiness together.
