Connors Center Wedding, Dover MA: Mariana and James

What were you most excited about before the wedding?

We were most excited to celebrate with the people closest to us. We both have international family who we don’t get to see very often, and it was very special to have them there for our wedding celebration 

What moments did you love the most after your wedding?

One of the moments we loved most was our first dance. We had changed the song only days before and did not have time to practice our dance. The morning of the wedding we spend a couple minutes coming up with “our moves”, and when the time came and we were in the moment it was all perfect to us, and we pulled it off. 

Another moment that was so special to us was our first look. The nerves and excitement we felt mimicked that of our first date three years ago. We were both overcome with emotion, seeing each other. Afterwards it was nice to take comfort in the fact that we were doing this and in this together which settled our nerves for the ceremony. 

What was the best decision you made for your wedding?

One of the best decisions we made was working with Paula as our wedding planner. She helped us create exactly what we envisioned and made it truly special to us. Not only did she keep us on track and organized, but we found the right team like our photographer 🙂 

Which images did you love the most, any one specific ones and why?

Although it was very hard to choose favorites and we love so many of the pictures, the pictures of us under the veil captured the moment perfectly and show our happiness, closeness and love for each other. It’s funny because at the time Angie told us that it may seem strange, but to “trust her”, and now they are some of our favorites.  

If you shared a little advice for couples going through this process what would be the biggest take away?

The piece of advice we would give to future couples is not only to slow down to appreciate what’s happening and take it all in, but also to enjoy the special things you booked for your event. Don’t forget to enjoy things like your dessert table and photo booth!

Fruitlands Wedding, Harvard MA: Emily and Simon

bride and groom runnig

What were you most excited about before the wedding?

Emily – I was excited for all of it, but I was mostly excited for the pictures. It was really important to me to get fantastic photos from the wedding.

Simon – After a long time waiting and everyone telling me how beautiful she looked, I really wanted to see Emily in the dress. The reveal moment ended up being exactly as wonderful as I had hoped.

What moments did you love the most after your wedding?

Getting the photos through for the first time and getting to relive the wedding in the slideshow that Angie had prepared was a really beautiful moment. There were tears all round and we were so happy with how it turned out.

What was the best decision you made for your wedding?

Simon – Doing the formal photos before the ceremony. This meant that after the ceremony we could spend time with everyone instead of having to spend time doing lots of photos.

Emily – Packing up our meal so we could eat it later at the hotel. We were running around so much during the wedding and it was really nice that night to sit down with our food and relive the day a little in a quiet space. It might sound trivial, but it helped us to reflect and breathe and enjoy the moment together.

Which images did you love the most, any one specific ones and why?

Simon – I loved the sunset photos the most as I’ve always loved the sunset and Angie captured it really beautifully with us in the foreground. I also loved the pictures from the Ceilidh where the movement and dynamism of the dance really came through in the photos, bringing back strong memories even a couple of months after the wedding.

Emily – I liked the ceremony photos and the sunset photos, but I also loved the photos from the speeches where Angie managed to get a lot of the reactions to the speeches and not just photos of the speaker. The wide shot of my veil flowing in the wind might still be my favorite photo though.

If you shared a little advice for couples going through this process what would be the biggest take away?

Once you get to the day, there is little, if anything, you can change. You might be stressed in that moment and hoping everything goes to plan, but you’re out of ways to influence it so try to take a deep breath and enjoy it as much as possible. You only get to do it once (if you’re lucky) and it’s worth getting completely lost in enjoying the moment.

Avenir Wedding: Walpole MA – Miriam and Gary

What were you most excited about before the wedding?

Before the wedding I was most excited to Marry my high school sweetheart. I was excited to be with family and friends and have all of my people in one room celebrating together.

What moments did you love the most after your wedding?

Looking back at my wedding day two things come to mind: Our first dance, it was really special, I honestly don’t remember anyone even being in the room, I just remember the two of us talking and laughing together. Even though the music wasn’t perfect and I was nervous about everyone just looking at us, it all just went away. Something else that was really special that we did was go around to each table to greet our guests, yes it took a while and we didn’t get to eat because of it. But, it was so special that I can honestly say I spoke to everyone and thanked them for coming out and celebrating with us.

What was the best decision you made for your wedding?

Honestly the best decision I made was to do the day after photo shoot with Angie. Your wedding day is a very long day, and it was really important to us to do extended family photos. Our venue wouldn’t let us come to early, and I didn’t want to have to get up at the crack of dawn, so we planned to do our couple’s portraits a couple days after the wedding. A day after the wedding, we were not stressed about getting our perfect photo of the two of us and we were able to get photos in some amazing locations, which we would never been able to do on the day of the wedding. It was also really fun to put my dress back on and we were so much more relaxed that day. The pictures from that day are my absolute favorite and came out amazing.

Which images did you love the most, any one specific ones and why?

The photo’s from our next day shoot are my absolute favorite because of the locations and how relaxed we are. I really like the candid photo’s that Angie got.

If you shared a little advice for couples going through this process what would be the biggest take away?

For sure if you can, you should do a shoot with Angie the next day!! You won’t regret it!

Honesty, I was incredibly organized and being so really made the day go by as smooth as possible. Also, don’t stress about the weather, there is nothing you can do about it, and make sure you have a good rain plan.
