Plimoth Plantation WeddingJJ & Mathieu

JJ and Mathieu got married in a beautiful ceremony at Plimoth Plantation in Plymouth on Saturday! It was the most wonderful wedding day, and I’m so happy I got to share it with them!

I started the day off with JJ, who was getting ready at the Pilgrim Sands Hotel.

They drove because it was a bit of a climb over some steep rocks to get to the house, and we weren’t sure it was the best idea for JJ to do it in her long dress and heels. On their way to the house, they stopped, signaled left, and were waiting to turn into the driveway when someone tried to pass them on the right. In so doing, he rear-ended them and collided with a telephone pole. It was crazy. JJ and her maid of honor were totally fine, and the driver of the other car had what seemed to be an airbag related injury to his face.

JJ was amazing and took it all in stride, and rallied for the first look. And did you see her smiles in the photos above? I’m so impressed with how composed and positive she was throughout the whole ordeal.

After the first look we walked over to meet the wedding party who were getting ready to board a trolley. This was the scene at the hotel.Wedding Photographer WalthamThese two firemen were great sports and let us take a photo with them to remember this part of the day! Bride with FiremenIt was a pretty eventful start to the wedding day, that’s for sure!
