Wychmere Wedding — Katherine + Ben
Katherine and Ben met at 35,000 feet in 2009 — they were both students at Boston College and were on their way to study abroad in Australia. Ben said he knew right away that Katherine was his person (even though she loves the beach and he doesn’t, he likes to cook and she doesn’t); just watching them together proves that Ben knew exactly what was up ;).
The forecast for their Memorial Day wedding was fairly gloomy, but when I arrived on the Cape to the house where Katherine and her girls were getting ready, the mood was anything but. Laughter and smiles and all kinds of optimism about the day kept all of the rain away, and we ended up keeping almost all of the the scheduled outdoor plans intact. Katherine and Ben did their First Look at Ben’s parent’s new home, which was the perfect backdrop for the clean, preppy, summer casual look that the bride and groom both wore. Pink ties, pink shoes, pink umbrellas, pink florals — these pops of color against the overcast skies just made everything look so fresh and crisp. I LOVE when brides carry colorful flowers —it’s just so pretty against the white, and Fleur Events came through with some of the most gorgeous bouquets I’ve ever seen.
I love photographing weddings at Wychmere Beach Club and this was no exception. The room was stunning and we were so fortunate to get to take some between-raindrops photos down on the beach and the dock, and I’m so pleased with the results. The amazing DJ Danny Walsh kept the dance floor packed all night, and Ben and Katherine both showed off some pretty fancy dance moves. Such a fun night, such a wonderful crowd, and such a happy couple. I’m so glad I was able to be there with them to make these magical pictures. A big thank you to Shannon for coming along to help out!
Happy life, happy love!!
