Christine and Chad celebrated their wedding day with downpours and outpours (is there such a word?).
The rains were not going to let up for anyone today, beginning when Kelly and I arrived at Christine’s home for her dressing. We shook ourselves off to find Christine already in that space that can is reserved for people who are at peace. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone calmer before their wedding. Her final makeup was being put on; Coach was peaking around corners and Mom was cracking us up. I knew we were in a good place.
Christine’s bridal gown, shoes and flowers are the secondary pieces to her Gram’s angel pin. She was with them today.
I think Christine would have been running up the church steps regardless of the weather. I never saw either Chad or Christine without a grin, or a look of complete mischief all day. There were up for anything!
After the service at the lovely Park Congregational church we stepped outside a columned porch for some really quick formals; and then later across the street from the Seaman’s Inne for more. It was a wind tunnel! So much fun! They are so expressive I had a hard time not rolling at their antics.
The Seamen’s Inne does such a fine job of welcoming their guests, and tonight was no exception. Kim Aubin and her staff were excellent, and I was particularly impressed with the staff attached to Chris and Chad. Everything they needed was provided instantly.
But a party is nothing without the people; whether it was Chad’s men and new father in law roasting him hard, or the Mom’s getting into the table wines, dancing without a stop all night long. Rip Entertainment kept the dance floor packed all night–and Christine and her Mom didn’t get off once that I saw. Scott Dery from Worner Bros Video was a pleasure to work with-very aware of the photographer’s need to roam. I hope I didn’t walk thru the scene too many times. Kelly and I couldn’t get over how much fun the day was. So much laughter and love!
A deep thank you for letting us share your day.
