Jeff and Olivia were married on one of those late September days that magically still feels like summer. The way the sun shone so brightly during their ceremony seemed a perfect representation of their relationship as these two truly light each other up with joy!
Olivia and Jeff’s ceremony and reception took place at The Villa in East Bridgewater, MA. This sweet couple had chosen not to do a first look, however, they did a “no look” first look where they weren’t able to see each other, but could hold hands and have a minute to talk to each other before the ceremony. I actually did this same thing at my own wedding and I was so eager to be able to document this very special moment for them! Capturing their joyful laughs and tears as they held hands realizing they were about to embark on a whole new journey together was truly emotional.
Guests gathered at one of The Villa’s beautiful outdoor ceremony locations to witness Jeff and Olivia become husband and wife. Upon seeing his bride for the first time as she walked down the aisle, Jeff reacted with such real emotion. The ceremony highlighted this couple’s strong faith and love for each other. Their smiles as they left the ceremony hand in hand were some of the most joyful I’ve seen and I don’t think they stopped smiling the rest of the night!
It was a reception of simple elegance with pops of navy blue and pink that greeted guests as they entered the ballroom. Technically a fall wedding (even though Mother Nature tried to convince us otherwise), the couple chose adorable bottles of maple syrup as escort cards and favors for their guests. The new Mr. and Mrs. entered the room to thunderous applause from family and friends and shared their first dance to “From the Ground Up.” We stole away at sunset for some photos down by the bridge and these two needed no direction in snuggling close; seriously just the sweetest! When we got back to the ballroom the dance floor was in full swing and Jeff and Olivia joined their friends and family for an evening full of laughter and love! Hope you two are enjoying your first few months of marriage!
