Lexi Photography » Candid :: Real :: Emotional

I love a wedding with a relaxed couple and Liz & Steven are exactly that! The day started with getting ready and photos at the gorgeous Ocean Edge Resort in Brewster and then onto a private residence in Brewster for the backyard ceremony and tented reception. I LOVE a backyard wedding, there is something about the relaxed atmosphere that just makes me so happy. The focus for Liz and Steven in their wedding was fun…and they got it! We had hours of dancing, yummy food complete with a taco bar (which is why Liz and I are clearly kindred spirits), and a moment where Liz actually sang a song to Steven.

I loved everything about this day, Liz & Steven had planned everything perfectly and the timing gave them enough wiggle room to relax and enjoy each other’s company a little bit longer and even have time to relax with their wedding party too. The details were perfect—a Sperry tent with long tables featuring lanterns and loose eucalyptus leaves, a backyard ceremony with hanging flower buckets, bistro lights hanging above the welcome table, sparkly Keds, just a perfect relaxed wedding.

Favorite Things:

• Liz’s fantastic dry sense of humor
• Steven and his groomsmen looked so dapper in charcoal suits
• I love a bride who decides to wear sparkly sneakers…and I love that Keds & Kate Spade teamed up to make such an adorable shoe
• Liz sang a song to Steven that her father had jokingly told her she had to perform at her wedding someday. The song, as it turns out, is Bitch by Meredith Brooks, which added the perfect amount of humor to such a sentimental moment. Love!

Fall weddings are just my favorite—the crisp chill in the air, the changing colors on the trees, the jewel colored dresses, the rain…wait…what?! Yes, I feel like this has been a very rainy fall or maybe it’s just been my luck that every wedding has a little bit of overcast rain with it. Well, thankfully a little bit of rain doesn’t really bother me much and so I encourage my couples to just smile and enjoy it and although Hurricane José was still threatening us with wind and rain on this Friday afternoon we were able to get gorgeous photos of this stunning couple and I think you’ll like them too. :)

Amanda wore a perfect lace Pronovias gown with just a little bit of sparkle and the girls had long navy dresses. The guys wore charcoal gray suits and the flowers were clean white to get those dresses and tuxes to really pop. There was a nod to some nautical elements but it had an overall elegant feel. Plus, lucky for me all the details inside the Cruiseport Gloucester were stunning with pops of pink, white, and gold…so pretty. And even though it was windy we were able to play with some if it out on the back deck and catch that veil. Alright, I know Amanda is very patiently awaiting these so I’ll get right to it!

Favorite Things:

• The light on the porch at the Beauport Hotel was perfect…and Amanda is really not so hard to photograph. ;)
• Amanda’s laugh during the vows was the cutest moment
• Despite some sprinkles the rain stopped for just enough time for us to enjoy outdoor photos and the light was to die for!
• The wind with that veil. Big love. <3
• There’s a running joke that Steve looks a little bit like Pitbull (although, in all honesty Steve is much more handsome) so that came up in a lot of the dancing. Ha!

I photographed Matthew’s sister for her senior portraits a few years back (actually nearly 5 years ago) so when his mom contacted me to photograph Matthew for his senior portraits I was beyond honored. It really is the biggest compliment to have someone allow me to photograph another important milestone moment for their family. Makes me smile really big smiles. :)

Matt was totally relaxed and easy to photograph. He went with the flow, even when we changed locations (a couple times) and we had perfect night on this cooler evening in lovely Newburyport. Senior portraits for guys is a little more relaxed and mom was really hoping for some smile pictures (with teeth) and I think I caught them at the end. Let’s get to the photos!

Favorite moments:

• Please bring your adorable 5-month old golden doodle with you to your session. Oh you don’t have one…then you’ll just have to enjoy the cuteness of Nala!
• Matt was super easy to photograph and we had perfect light in all of our locations (thank you beautiful summer light)
• Mom really wanted a few photos with her son so we got some…she wanted him to laugh (with teeth) so I think we got a couple. ;)
