I started the day at the Garrison Inn on the North Shore of Newburyport, Massachusetts. This quaint inn was packed full of beautiful bridesmaids and handsome brides men! This is what happens when you’re well loved and you have lots of friends!! Obviously Beth is an amazing woman to have so many wonderful people surrounding her on her wedding day! Everyone was so welcoming. I came into their world of hairspray, makeup, magic and chatter and they welcomed me with open arms! It was a wonderful morning!!!
Brian and Beth have one of those relationships that everyone just loves hearing about. They met, fell in love and EVERYONE loves them together. One of my favorite parts of their wedding day was during the reception when their family gave their toasts. It seemed like every toast had a common theme, Brian and Beth were great people before they met, but they are better together.
Brian and Beth’s wedding was possible because they have incredible friends and family (especially Beth’s AMAZING mom) that all joined forces and made sure the day was PERFECT! … And it was just that! Their day was filled with little moments they will always remember, and hopefully laugh about; from Beth’s sister singing to (and with her) to shake off the nerves while Beth got her makeup done, to Brian’s brother missing his flight but making it just in time to change in the shuttle before the ceremony started. Wedding days are perfect, not because everything goes according to plan, but because of all the unexpected moments that you will still be talking about fifty years from now.
Alnoba was the best location for their intimate wedding ceremony, and I’m glad I got to photograph a unique New England wedding there! Beth and Brian skipped over the part of saying their own vows and instead promised to love one another with their whole heart for all eternity. As a symbol of their bond, they literally tied the (fisherman’s) knot as a way to begin building a strong foundation for their life together.
Brian and Beth, you truly made your wedding day unique to who you are as a couple. I love that you kept some of the traditions, like not seeing each other before the ceremony, but skipped the formal dances and instead just mingled with your guests. It was such an honor to be a part of your celebration and capture so many memories. This is just the beginning of your new adventure together!!!!
