Let's Go Out & Feel the Night

Jenna and Patrick got married on a very rainy day in July at Gibbet Hill in Groton, MA. The plan was outdoor ceremony, outdoor photos, indoor reception. Torrential downpours changed all that. Did it matter? Nope! My bride and groom didn’t complain – their focus was getting married and no rain was going to get in the way of that!

I love this photo!

So, there’s some inside joke about this Cabbage Patch doll and the bridesmaids, so we incorporated her into the ring shots. Of course, I placed her all over the reception as well, but I like this one best.

A ceremony photo! Jenna & Patrick were nothing if not expressive.

Since the rain kept us inside for formals, we made use of some lighting and went for dramatic and moody in the barn.

Dancing as husband & wife! Jenna & Patrick’s first dance was to “Harvest Moon” by Neil Young. I have been to a lot of weddings and this was definitely the first time I had heard that as an opening song. In preparation for this blog post, I looked up the lyrics and they are beautiful! Here’s a snippet:

“When we were strangers
I watched you from afar
When we were lovers
I loved you with all my heart.

But now it’s gettin’ late
And the moon is climbin’ high
I want to celebrate
See it shinin’ in your eye.

Because I’m still in love with you
I want to see you dance again
Because I’m still in love with you
On this harvest moon.”

And I couldn’t post Jenna & Patrick’s wedding without including a photo of Patrick’s dancing groomsmen. This dude really turned it out. I’m pretty sure there was an intense dance-off immediately following these moves.

Jenna and Patrick, thank you so much for making me a part of your day! Your families and friends are awesome and I can’t wait to see you both again!
