Cape Cod Wedding Photographer :: White Cliffs :: Leslie & Brendan

I hadn’t met Leslie or Brendan until the wedding day but as soon as I met them they both were totally calm and relaxed. Rain was threatening all day but Leslie didn’t have a moment of doubt. We did a first look outside (my favorite) and then did all of the family and bridal party pics. I’m glad we did because the weather was unpredictable and rainy throughout most of the evening. We popped out once in the rain and then again when it broke…totally worth it! The day—despite the rain—was beautiful and Leslie and Brendan were so much fun to photograph. Their families were both awesome and fun and welcoming and we loved being a part of this wedding. I hope you like the sneak peek!

Leslie & Brendan opted for a first look—which, if you don’t know, happens to be my very favorite. I love a first look because it is so emotional and allows you to really have fun with all of your photos ahead of time. If we hadn’t done a first look all of their family and group photos would have been done inside because of the rain…yuck! Instead, we had a beautiful first look and all family/group photos outside, yay! Love this series:)

This is just after the first look, Simon’s view.

The rain came down just before our “couple” photo session. I asked Leslie if she wanted to stay in because it was, after all, before her ceremony. “Nope, let’s go outside!” was her answer. Did I mention before how much I love my clients?!?!

Love this shot.

And Leslie’s laughter.

We were going under the gazebo to get out of the rain, she ran through the ceremony chairs with Brendan chasing after her. I LOVE this moment that Simon caught:)

It was really coming down before the ceremony. Usually rain doesn’t show up on film…but this rain did.

Leslie chose to do black J Crew dresses and the flowers bought in all of the color…gorgeous!

Leslie, I adore your dad…just do. There is a series where they are both crying just before this shot, but I love this moment as they walk toward the tent for the ceremony.
Photobucket

Yay for beautiful white tents and open light:)

Introducing…

During the cocktail hour we got a break in the rain and we ran outside for a few more shots. Reason #912 why it is a good idea to do a first look: 2 mini photo sessions and 2 chances to get awesome pics!!!

I love the “I just got married” smiles that I get:)
Photobucket

And the spin. Simon and I were showing them how to do this and the guests were laughing at the photographers’ “how to” lesson that we were giving.

I love Leslie’s giggle here.

I love an almost kiss too.

Leslie, you are beautiful!
Photobucket

And you are both so fun!

First dance goodness.

I love when my brides have this much fun on their wedding day!

A little dance grid for you!

Leslie & Brendan, we hope you are loving Greece! Simon and I are VERY jealous, but we hope you love the Cyclades Islands. Bring home some of that island magic with you…or at least some Metaxa or Ouzo:)
