Emma and Keenan got married on a rainy August day. But nothing could dampen the spirits of these two lovebirds and their family and friends.
Emma got ready at her parent’s house in Plymouth, MA surrounded by her two bridesmaids, Adrienne and Ally. Such a gorgeous location to get prepared for the big day, with lots of light. The house was quiet when we arrived and Emma took a peaceful moment to write her vows.
Then it quickly grew busier and more excited as the champagne was popped and the dressing up began. Emma was calm, collected, and stunning in her lace gown. We did a first look with Dad, who was of course full of love for his beautiful daughter! Emma gave her girls and mom a gift, took a moment for some photos with her parents, and then we were on our way to the ceremony!
Keenan and the gentleman were getting ready right down the road at the Best Western in Plymouth. This was a guy’s den with cigars, whiskey and argyle socks. They looked up some fancy knots for their sage green ties and enjoyed the engraved knives they received as gifts by using one to cut a clean edge for Keenan’s wedding vows. The rain had let up and allowed for a quick portrait session, before they too were headed to the Plantation for the ceremony.
The ceremony took place in Gainsborough Hall, which has a pretty fireplace and chandeliers and big windows overlooking the river. It was packed with family, friends, and loved ones to celebrate Emma and Keenan’s marriage. The officiant was Emma and Keenan’s old middle school headmaster! The flowers done by Lori Danek (Nature Inspired Designs) were romantic and lovely draped across the mantle and in the girls’ bouquets. Such a beautiful ceremony filled with love!
From there we caught grandma and grandpa before they headed to the cocktail hour for some family formals. We went to the barn on the property to get some great portraits and have some bridal party fun.
The guys were copying everything the ladies did! My favorite is the admiring the ring photos, from both the girls and the guys.
After, Jason and I snuck the newlyweds away for some quiet portrait time by the river. The diffused lighting from the light drizzle made for gorgeous pictures. Although, with these two, there was no taking a bad photo! They were completely enamored with one another and their love could be felt just by being near them.
Such stunning details and meaningful items were sprinkled throughout this wedding. The reception tent was decorated with handmade bunting from fabric scraps from friends and family. The place settings were mixed china collected for over a year. Could it get any more unique than that? I have a whole post dedicated just to the details HERE.
The band, Chicken Slacks, has a mo-town funk style that kept the dance floor hoping all night long! From Emma and Keenan’s first dance, there was never a dull moment.
Needless to say, Jason and I were honored to celebrate Emma and Keenan’s love and marriage. We wish them all the best and a long future filled with good times and laughter!! Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Thomson!
