Karen and David are two of the most laid back, relaxed people I’ve ever met, which made for an easy, fun day of shooting. Their wedding plans were simple and straightforward – it was a small wedding and they did everything with their own unique twist. Since it was a small wedding and there was no dance floor at the reception hall, Eddy got the day off and I shot this one solo. Thanks for letting me document your wedding Karen and David, we hope you love the photos.
Ceremony: Martha-Mary Chapel at The Wayside Inn, Sudbury, MA
Reception: The Wayside Inn
Bride’s Dress: Maggie Sottero from Special Events Bridal, Marlborough, MA
Hair & Makeup: Roc’s Salon, Marlborough, MA
Jewelry: JoyDen Jewelers, Marlborough, MA
Cake: The Wayside Inn
Flowers: Apple Valley Flower Shoppe, Hudson, MA
Karen’s jewelry was provided by JoyDen Jewelers and it was perfect.
Karen and her family are originally from England, and clearly David has a love for all things British. Karen took a few moments to have some photos taken with David’s beautiful Triumph TR6.
The rain wasn’t slowing down Karen at all. She’s so thoughtful that she bought a clear umbrella so as not to block too much light. I was very appreciative.
The ring bearer looked great in his tiny tuxedo.
David waited patiently in the rain at the back of the church for Karen to arrive.
The rain prevented us from taking too many photos outside, so we spent a few minutes after the ceremony in the chapel for the bridal portraits.
We did manage to get a few quick shots outside the chapel.
A horse and carriage was Karen’s mode of transportation between the Wayside Inn and the chapel.
The Wayside Inn in Sudbury, MA is America’s oldest operating Inn, providing food and lodging for travelers since 1716. It’s rooms are unique and full of historic charm, and provided a great backdrop for some more bridal portraits.
The cake was simple and elegant, with fresh flowers on top.
The Best Man’s toast was short and sweet.
Then Karen’s father gave a great toast, which was more like a roast of his daughter. He had the whole room in stitches.
Even though the wedding was small, there wasn’t room in the reception hall for a dance floor. This was ok by Karen and David because they didn’t plan on dancing. Instead, they hired 3 amazing guitar players to provide a musical backdrop for the evening.
Toward the end of the night, it turned into a sing-along. Karen, David, their families, and their friends sat around the guitar players singing loudly. The musicians even started taking requests.
Karen’s father was one of the lead vocalists and is quite the character.
Congratulations Karen and David, we hope you got a ton of great photos from your honeymoon!
