Laurie and Mike's Willowdale Wedding

This was a crazy weekend!  Back to back weddings, starting with Laurie and Mike's gorgeous day!  I know we have said it before but we seriously have the best job EVER!!!!!  And our couples are a big part of that!  Getting to work with these amazing people in the happiest time of their lives is so rewarding!  On top of getting to work with these great couples, we also get to meet and work with some amazing people both at all of the beautiful venues but also all of the other behind the scenes people that make these wedding days so perfect!  We actually had the pleasure of running into the makeup artist that we worked with the weekend before in North Andover and we will be back to Willowdale Estate in July for another perfect wedding!

Laurie was so calm when we got to her, enjoying the company of her closest family and friends.  Mike was no different, ready to get to the church on time!!!  The ceremony was beautiful and watching the beaming smiles of the bride and groom, leaning over to whisper to each other was so adorable!  Once we got to Willowdale Estate, it was easy!  Having a first look there earlier in the day, we were able to jump into bridal party and family pictures with a serene and lush backdrop.  The couple wanted to achieve a "Vanity Fair" style shot with their large bridal party and I think we were able to achieve that!  Being able to show not only that but a collection of same day edits during the reception was another emotional part of the day!  The reaction was fantastic and we even had a groomsman from a wedding last year come and say hello after!  It's always fun to see others we had the pleasure of working with again! 

Congrats Laurie and Mike!  Enjoy your incredible honeymoon and we can't wait to get together again when you come back!!!
