Laura and Shaun got married this past weekend on an absolutely perfect spring day! Special thanks to my second shooters Shawn and Alan for all of their help, and some of the photos below!
I started off the day with Laura while she and her attendants got ready at the hotel. Laura was so relaxed. And so very lovely too. How much do you love the flower in her hair?
I took the shuttle with Laura to the chuch. We drove through the most beautiful scenery to get to the church – I was sort of wishing we could stop the shuttle to take photos! When I got to the church I was absolutely thrilled because it was the most perfect and wonderful church I’ve ever seen. The light was spectacular, and every aspect of the church felt designed with photographs in mind! It was charming and perfect. If you or anyone you know are looking for a great place to tie the knot, please check out The White Church in Blandford. You will not be disappointed! Laura and Shaun’s ceremony was amazing. The readings were my favorite part. My only regret was that the ceremony wasn’t longer – I was really enjoying photographing the church and could have continued to do so for hours!
After the ceremony, we took the formal photos and used both the church and the grounds around the church. How cute is the stone wall? And how perfect was the light? And how awesome is it that there is an adorable yellow couch IN THE CHURCH?
Here are a few photos of the wedding party. Again, how much do we love this church!??!?!
When we were done with the formals, we all headed to The Southampton Country Club for the cocktail hour and reception. Here are a few of my favorites from the beginning of the reception – first dance, toasts, and some fun details. Favorite detail: a Mad Libs guest book. GENIUS! A very close second place goes to Wedding Day IPA, brewed by Shaun for the guests.
And then, of course, there was dancing!!
There’s a first time for everything, and today is my first time devoting an entire segment of a blog post to a wedding guest. This guest might be my favorite wedding guest of all time. Somebody requested Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the USA” for him. I have to admit that this song is one my guiltiest pleasures. I don’t really listen to the radio, so I tend to get really excited when it’s played at weddings. Not nearly excited, however, as this guest, who went totally nuts and had his own dance choreographed. He even did a salute. It was the best. thing. ever. I wish I could have joined him on the dance floor!
Congratulations Laura and Shaun! Your wedding day was absolutely perfect, and I wish you the best!
