This past summer has been filled with some incredible weddings to officiate. The couples I have had the pleasure to work with are beautiful, loving and so ready to step into creating the visions of their future. Here are some images from their ceremonies and services.
Cozy at Home
Friends and family gathered to celebrate the wedding of Lori and Scott. Lori’s daughter’s took hold of making the cakes. These are just some of the many beautiful cupcakes they had decorated. Home sweet home!
May the Force Be with You!
Joann and Ian are avid readers and love science fiction. We wove some references to their favorite movie into the ceremony at their love filled seaside wedding.
At the Beach
I have never been to Revere or Winthrop. How wonderful to go there for Nancy and Bill’s early summer wedding! We walked to the beach behind their home with children and grandchildren and friends with us for a sunset wedding. At the end a friend led a fun tai chi exercise to blessed their day with beautiful energy.
Morning of Summer Solstice!
Thomas and Robert wanted a Summer Solstice morning service by the water. Family came up from Tennessee and the thought of butter cream frosting on the cake was on everyone’s mind. They never thought marriage would be available to them. What a gift to create their special day with them.
In the City
Officiating in Boston is an adventure and fun! Kathleen and Aly have a level of optimism and love that oozes from them is beyond anything I have ever experienced. Laughter was the total order of their wedding at the Boston Harbor Hotel.
Sailing Ships in the Ocean
Lisa and Derek chose the weekend of the Schooner Races in Gloucester to have their wedding overlooking the harbor. A windy day with boats in the harbors and picnics all around them. They wrote their own vows to one another. Incredibly touching!
From California to Home
Lindsay and Adam grew up in Massachusetts and started planning their services while I was in California. Fun was the name of the game at their wedding at The House of the Seven Gables. As the rain came in during their service, we kept going. Afterall, rain drops are blessings!
I look forward to working with all of the couples getting married this coming Fall and Winter. From Halloween themes, to early Thanksgiving, to sweet and beautiful ceremonies being planned, I love putting together ceremonies that represent the integrity of the couples. Many blessings to everyone!
So admittedly I am fine with weddings that have elements that are fun and out of the ordinary!
While browsing for more ideas to share with couples I came across this blog on BuzzFeed on unconventional but awesome wedding ideas! What fun some of themare!
Having your wedding someplace with multiple stalls in the bathroom? Don’t want a wedding dress and you want something fun and funky? A Jenga style guest book? Pamphlets? Coloring books for the kids in the crowd? Photo booth? DIY confetti bar? Cake buffet? How fun are some of these?
Today weddings are created from a fun, light-hearted and loving perspective. There is an opportunity for couple to fully embrace who they each are that is unique. If I did my wedding today I wonder what I would have done!
What would your wedding party be like if you had an old fashioned field day? Grandparents as flower people and ring bearers? Sparklers as you walked down the aisle? Food trucks for catering? Check out this article on impossibly fun ideas!
