Lexi Photography » Candid :: Real :: Emotional

What an absolutely beautiful day this one was! Emily & Kyle got a warm sunny July day for their nuptials and were married at an adorable chapel on the campus of The Governor’s Academy in Byfield. The chapel was bright and open but it was hot hot hot inside there. :) We were able to walk around the campus for photos and then went off to the Willowdale Estate for the reception. There is something I love about traditional New England weddings and Emily & Kyle chose one of my favorite venues for that—combined with the history of The Governor’s Academy (where Emily went to high school) they really rounded out a perfectly elegant New England affair. There are tons of photos here and I know Emily is waiting very patiently for this post so I’ll get right to it!

Favorite Things:

• I love guys in gray suits. I know I say it a lot but I do.
• Emily wore not one but TWO beautiful gowns—they were both perfect for her and I honestly can’t choose a favorite.
• The bouquets were bright and summery with hot pink and yellow blooms…big love!
• Emily was such a happy bride, every photo I took she was glowing and smiling…I just love that. :)

Molly and Sam were married last weekend at the stunning Ocean Edge Resort on Cape Cod. I love a classic New England venue and this had classic written all over it. It was a beautiful sprawling property and we tried to take advantage of it as much as possible, despite the light rain we got for most of the day. Molly & sam have been together since high school, and you know I love a story that begins with young love. These two are just the sweetest couple together and I loved all the shots we got. The guys wore white dinner jackets (such a dapper look) and the girls had long chartreuse dresses and carried deconstructed white and green bouquets done by the fabulous Boston Pollen. Molly’s Romona Keveza ballgown had a full lace bottom and she paired it with a cathedral length veil…eeeek so pretty!

When it came time to party Molly and Sam made sure everyone had fun with a 9-piece band that rocked the dance floor. The reception room was decked out in burlap, bright white and green bouquets, classic lined menu cards, and green colored water goblets at the tables…the whole room was stunning. During dances and toasts the sun came out and filled the room with warm orange light and it was a truly stunning cap to the day. Love!

Favorite Things:

• I’m a sucker for a white dinner jacket, it’s just such an elegant look
• Molly had the most beautiful full lace ballgown, you don’t often see that and it was perfect for her!
• Deconstructed bouquets are my favorite…Molly’s was also oval shaped, which fit perfectly and was easier to hold
• If you give me an old Linden tree with hanging branches I’m just such a happy photographer. ;)

Love these two! I have just been so so lucky to share the day with such amazing couples and Cailin and Mike were a perfect example of just how wonderful my couples can be. I got to photograph Cailin’s brother’s wedding back in 2010 and her cousin’s wedding just a couple of years ago and now I got to see both of these couples again! Plus, most of them were even in the wedding party. That is one of the many reasons that I just adore my job—getting to spend time with such wonderful people makes me so happy. :)

Okay, the day started out overcast and everyone was worried about the light, I tried to explain about how overcast days are a photographer’s dream (hellllooooo beautiful even light) and it really did not disappoint. Cailin wore a stunning lace overlay gown with just a little bit of sparkle (the underlay was white sequins) and carried a cascading bouquet in shades of pink. The guys were in gray suits and the girls had fantastic one-shoulder coral dresses that were a perfect pop of color to photograph against the Gould Barn. They held their reception at the classic Commons 1854 that has a gorgeous upstairs ballroom. Cailin & Mike built in tons of extra time and we had a relaxed photo session before the party started…and boy can these two party! I have just a few (hehe) photos of all the festivities for you. :) Okay, let’s get to it!

Favorite Things:

• Cailin was a gorgeous bride, there’s something about a dark brunette bride that contrasts the white dress so well…stunner!
• Cailin’s neice and nephew were her flower girl and ring bearer and they might have stolen the show a few times. :)
• A cascading bouquet! This was beautiful and you don’t often see this style anymore. Big love. <3
• Mike may not love taking photos…but he looks pretty darn good in them. ;)
• The cake toppers—they were a police officer and a nurse, can you guess what these two do for a living?!?
