It seems like just yesterday that I had the pleasure of photographing Brett and Matt's seaside summer wedding in the quintessential coastal New England town of Rockport MA. Their early September wedding day started out with some bride and groom prep photos at the charming family owned Pleasant Street Inn. Matt and his groomsmen (man's BEST dog friend included) were pulling their effortlessly beachy chic attire together with tan suits, flip flops, sunglasses and of course, a bowtie for the dog. The beautiful bride's infectious upbeat attitude made for some wonderful bridal portrait photos. Take a look at her excitedly showcasing her sparkly sequins bridal sash and perfect brightly painted statement blue toes. Moving onto some bridal party and couple portrait fun, we hitched a trolley ride over to Bearskin Neck's historic Red Motiff #1 where we captured the adorable bride and groom's tug of war competition over their newly tied wedding infinity knot. We won't say who won but we will thank them for the entertainment! Next, we continued on to their ceremony at a beautiful private residence with impressive ocean views. Between the welcoming harpist, the inviting ocean scented breeze and the coastline views, we are still not sure which part we enjoyed the most. The perfect day ended with an unforgettable tented backyard beach and nautical inspired reception back where it all began at the lovely Pleasant Street Inn. The driftwood and seaglass sprinkled centerpieces, the individually hand-painted rocks used for seating and the beautiful succulent floral decor set the mood for a relaxing backyard celebration. Thankfully Lucky 13 band knew how to keep the party going while we snuck these playful two off for some creative couples night portraits. Thank you to all of the vendors below for being part of Brett and Matt's awesome wedding day and special thanks to the bride's family for hosting us at your charming Rockport Inn.
