What an absolutely perfect day with Jenrett & Nick at Misselwood at Endicott College in Beverly, MA! Not only was it a beautiful location, the weather was absolutely perfect!
I knew from the engagement photos that this was going to be an awesome wedding. These guys are absolutely wonderful people. And, based on Jenrett's dress for the engagement session, I knew her wedding dress would be fabulous. It did not disappoint! :)
She mentioned to Nick that it had "lots of beading" but I don't think that prepared him for exactly how much beading and sparkle and gorgeousness there was to this dress.
Jenrett shared a special moment with her dad before heading out to see Nick. The first time a dad sees his daughter in full bridal dress is one of the most touching of the day.
After seeing her dad, Jenrett made her way outside to see Nick for the first time. Nick was worried that he wasn't going to have the right reaction. He was concerned he'd be so in awe that he would just be in a state of shock. As you can see, he had nothing to worry about! His reaction was fantastic!
We spent some time doing photos of them together and then prepared for the ceremony. (See what I mean about a perfect location!?)
They had a friend read what has become one of my favorite poems-- "I Carry Your Heart With Me" by E.E. Cummings. (I first heard it from Tory & Mike back in January, and it has remained one of my favorites.)
After a few minutes of celebrating with family and friends we finished up the formal photos. This wedding party might be one of my favorite this year. Their dinosaur photo was top-notch!
Once the reception started, there was no lack of dancing and fun. Their first dance was choreographed with a dip and a lift. (I expected nothing less from a dancer... ;o) ) It was a beautiful dance and really kicked off the reception with a bang.
The dancing continued into the night with some amazing moments. I must say, these guys and their DJ had the perfect taste in music. I felt like every song was "my jam". Definitely makes the night a lot of fun when you can sing along (and maybe even dance a little) with the music.
The expressions these two had on their faces the entire day were amazing. I am sure their faces were paralyzed after from all the smiling. I'd say the they might have enjoyed the cake a little. (And, check out the uplighting by SociaLight! It added so much to the atmosphere! They also provided the lighting and draping. If you want to take an ordinary wedding tent to the next level, call these guys. It was beautiful! They had chandeliers and everything!)
After some sweet moments of dancing with their parents, the dance floor opened back up and the party continued.
We ended the night on the magical fairy-tale steps with a few private moments with them. It was a beautiful ending to a beautiful day. These guys are just fantastic and I know they have SO much fun and happiness ahead of them.
Congratulations Jenrett & Nick! So happy I could be there to witness how amazing everything was!
