I love Carolyn and Todd. I adored Carolyn immediately when I met with her last year, and I adored Todd when we did their engagement session earlier this year. So I was very excited for their wedding. And by the end of the day, I felt like part of the family.
The ceremony was at the bride's childhood church in Pelham, NH, and the reception was at The Barn at Gibbet Hill in Groton, MA. Carolyn put a LOT of time and thought into weaving amazing details throughout the day, just a few of which are highlited below.
I was so excited to see that they used one of their engagement photos on the back of their program (and even credited my name!). What a great gift idea for your guests- they can peel it off the program and have a 4x6 image ready to frame!
This says it all. ;)
Carolyn wore hair extensions. Fun!
Reading a card from Todd before heading to the church. ;)
Todd is trying really hard not to cry here. Awwww.Notice anything strange about these church doors? The florist (who shall remain nameless, seeing as she was late delivering the flowers and caused the entire ceremony to be pushed back) must not have hung the wreaths too well in her rush. I knew these were important to Carolyn, so I closed the doors to get a shot. And, well, the left wreath crashed to the ground! I was mortified!
The newly married couple at the Barn.
They have very cool grounds- including cows!- and it was pretty even tho the leaves aren't on the trees just yet.
A nook of tables in the barn. I love this space- rustic elegance.
The sweetheart table.
The yummy cake.
In lieu of a traditional guest book, guests were invited to write a message and drop it into a glass 'wishing well.' Blank cards were in this basket.
Love the breast cancer pink ribbon pens!
And here's a funny wish/advice!
Framed pictures from our engagement session were all around the reception. It was a really special touch, and I was so proud that they loved their images that much!
Thank you, Carolyn and Todd! Have a great honeymoon in the Dominican Republic!
An email from Carolyn:
"I think we spent the majority of Sunday and Monday saying how much we loved having you and J at the wedding. You are such a pleasure to work with....it sounds corny, but I really feel like I won the lottery. You and J are so genuine, and I think that's one of the best parts. Never mind all of your amazing work."
