Niki+Jim | Plymouth MA Wedding

It was a gorgeous day at the end of July for Niki+Jim’s wedding in Plymouth, MA.  Niki+Jim found us after we shot Kate+Dave’s wedding last September on Martha’s Vineyard.  Thanks for having us there to capture your wedding day and create some amazing images for you.  It was a day full of love and fun for everyone.  Plymouth MA Wedding_0001 Plymouth MA Wedding_0002 Plymouth MA Wedding_0003 I started with Niki getting ready with her mom after having her hair and makeup done at a salon nearby.  Soon enough her bridesmaids started arriving all ready to go! Plymouth MA Wedding_0004 Plymouth MA Wedding_0005 Plymouth MA Wedding_0006 Plymouth MA Wedding_0007Drew started the day with the guys in the hotel as well.  It’s always nice when the couple both get ready at the same location!

Plymouth MA Wedding_0071 Plymouth MA Wedding_0072 Plymouth MA Wedding_0073 Plymouth MA Wedding_0074 Plymouth MA Wedding_0075 Plymouth MA Wedding_0076 Niki and her Dad often perform together and obviously have a deep love for music.  They took a break during their dance to break it down!Plymouth MA Wedding_0077 Plymouth MA Wedding_0078 Plymouth MA Wedding_0079 Plymouth MA Wedding_0080 Plymouth MA Wedding_0081Next it was time for toasts, with Niki’s sister starting out.  She surprised Niki and Jim with a song that she had written and recorded special for the day.
Plymouth MA Wedding_0082 Plymouth MA Wedding_0083 Niki often writes songs and performs them at her friends and families weddings.  Her sister, Dee wanted to do this, but decided it would be too difficult to perform live (and not be crying).  I don’t think their was a dry eye in the house. Plymouth MA Wedding_0084 Plymouth MA Wedding_0085 Plymouth MA Wedding_0086 Plymouth MA Wedding_0087 Plymouth MA Wedding_0088 Plymouth MA Wedding_0089 Plymouth MA Wedding_0090 Plymouth MA Wedding_0091 Plymouth MA Wedding_0092After all the formalities it was time to get the party started.  Monica and Bryan of Night Rhythm were amazing and kept the dance floor packed the entire night.
Plymouth MA Wedding_0093 Plymouth MA Wedding_0094 Plymouth MA Wedding_0095 Plymouth MA Wedding_0096 Plymouth MA Wedding_0097 Plymouth MA Wedding_0098It was a given that Niki would get a mic in front of her during the reception.  She was breaking it down with Monica!

Abbie+Billy | Moraine Farm Wedding | Beverly, MA

We had a fabulous time shooting Abbie+Billy’s wedding a couple weeks ago at Moraine Farm in Beverly, MA.  It ended up being a beautiful day (even though rain threatened us all day).  We started the day at the Salem Waterfront Hotel where everyone was getting ready.  I spent some time with Abbie and the bridesmaids, while Drew hung out with the guys.  MrDrew Photography Wedding_0001 Abbie’s dress was an absolutely stunning lace dress.  You are going to fall in love with the back detail.  It is GORGEOUS!MrDrew Photography Wedding_0002MrDrew Photography Wedding_0003 MrDrew Photography Wedding_0030MrDrew Photography Wedding_0031MrDrew Photography Wedding_0004 MrDrew Photography Wedding_0005We finished up at the hotel and then headed to the Estate at Moraine Farm to finish getting ready.  It was a quick drive from Salem to Beverly.
MrDrew Photography Wedding_0006 The flowers had just been dropped off when we arrived.  The Flower Mill did an amazing job on all the bouquets. MrDrew Photography Wedding_0007The house on the Estate offers gorgeous rooms to get ready in.  The bridal suite has so many lovely details and lots of space to finish getting ready.
MrDrew Photography Wedding_0008 Abbie’s dress had lots of buttons which required all the bridesmaids to help button. MrDrew Photography Wedding_0009 MrDrew Photography Wedding_0010 MrDrew Photography Wedding_0011 MrDrew Photography Wedding_0012 MrDrew Photography Wedding_0013
