I did not meet Jess and Dave until a few weeks before their wedding, but had enjoyed frequent emails back-and-forth during the planning phase. Within moments of their visit to the studio for the first time, they felt like old friends (and good ones, too, when they mentioned their rehearsal dinner was at The Ramp- the bar, not the restaurant- in Cape Porpoise, a favorite of ours too!).
Their wedding was a glorious fall day at one of our favorite venues. Be sure to watch the slideshow below (or click here to have it open in a separate window)!
I met Jess at Eddy-Taylor Salon with her mom and friends. What a sweet, fun little shop!
This was a first! Jess' dress was hanging in the attic at her parents' house!
After a thorough trip to Sephora, Jess was ready to tackle her own wedding day make-up.
Love this! Jess' feet coming down the stairs, and her dad waiting for his first glance!
Jess' brother rode his Schwinn to the ceremony.
Jess and her father hiding in the back of the church. Love the buoy decor!
When I asked Jess the ideal image she hoped I would capture from her wedding day, it was one of her in full head-back laugh. Check!
Some of the best sunsets I have photographed are from Laudholm. The warm, glowy light is perfect for portraits.
Some brides clasp family brooches or their "something blue" to their bouquet. Not Jess! She has a little election reminder!
Another sumptuously yummy cake by Gayle at Let Them Eat Cake!
Darkness falls. Dinner was under the tent. Dancing was in the barn.
Congratulations, Jess and Dave! What a great wedding! We left with such happy hearts (and full bellies!). Thank you for welcoming us with such open arms and open minds! I know you weren't excited about the portrait part of the day, but yours are some of my favorites from the season! We hope to see you both sometime for a pint at The Ramp real soon!
