“I can’t believe this day is FINALLY here!” was the phrase of the day as it was said numerous times the morning of John and Lizzy’s wedding. John and Lizzy had been together for 15 years before this day arrived and because of that their families have been connected in such a beautiful way. The day had a comfort about it that we have never seen before and everything flowed as if it were always meant to be.
From the constant stories of friends and relatives in passing or during the toasts and speeches, it is very clear that John and Lizzy are a very special couple with very loving and generous hearts that know how to make everything and everyone around them better.
They could not have asked for a more gorgeous New England fall day to have their backyard wedding. The guys donned black tie tuxedos complete with suspenders while the girls were wrapped in the stylings of The White Dress By The Shore and adorned with pearls from J.Crew. It was all very proper and classic. Everyone and everything looked absolutely perfect!
After a traditional ceremony filled with much laughter and stories of John and Lizzy’s relationship (which dated back to 6th grade!), everyone proceeded to the home of John’s parents for one of the most elegant and classy receptions that we have ever seen. Everywhere you looked there was another gorgeous detail. From the tent over the tennis court, to the incredible florals, to the delicious food, to the cigar & brandy station, this wedding had something for everyone to enjoy and everyone certainly enjoyed themselves (including us!).
We could go on and on telling you about this couple and their awesome wedding, but words would never fully do it justice. Our hope is that these images will convey what words cannot.
John and Lizzy, the love you have for one another is a rare and precious gift that we pray you will treasure forever! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of this splendid day and may you continue to touch and enrich the lives of everyone with whom you come in contact. We cannot wait to see how you change the world together!
