Katy and Chris are two of the sweetest and most fun people you’ll ever meet. Honestly. I’ve known Chris his whole life (really – that’s not even an exaggeration), so to photograph his wedding to Katy was such an honor for me. It was an awesome way for me to be part of the celebration. And, man, it was a real celebration!
Everyone started the day off getting ready at the Cohasset Harbor Resort. Katy and Chris had a pretty big wedding party, so both rooms were bustling with activity! It was so fun to see everyone swirling around, putting on perfume, make-up, dresses. And, of course the guys were adjusting ties and vests and getting the rings tied on to the little pillow! Katy & Chris opted for a First Look, so we all met up before the ceremony for photos! And their ceremony was so heartfelt – they wrote their own vows and I think listening to the words they had to say to each other really engaged their guests. Everyone in that room was already part of their lives, had already contributed to (even in a small way) the people they had become, and their vows just sealed the deal. We all became part of the promises they made to each other and the love the shared with one another. It was moving. I may have needed to wipe a tear away from behind my camera.
And then the party. THE PARTY. I AM USING ALL CAPS BECAUSE THAT’S HOW AMAZING THIS RECEPTION WAS! DJ Pat Lally kept everyone on the frickin’ dance floor all night long. No joke. Frankly, I think you would have had trouble keeping people off the dance floor. The bride and groom spent all night dancing with their family and friends. The bride’s parents and the groom’s parents spent all night dancing with family and friends. I saw moves that night I had never seen before (like some questionable antics with a crutch). Take a look to see how the day (and night) unfolded.
