The best man stood up and gave a rousing speech about his twin brother that focused on two things: nipple size and the large number of groomsmen in the wedding party. And that’s just the beginning.
Technically, I guess that’s the middle, but it seemed like a catchy place to start! Jenny and Rob got married on a gorgeous day in September. Gorgeous everything – weather, location, people. Both the bride and groom got ready at the Brass Key Guesthouse in Provincetown, just steps from Commercial St. I got to hang out with the girls, and Allana got to hang with the guys (you may notice the aforementioned best-man-twin-brother not-so-stealthily flexing in the background of one of the photos). Jenny and Rob opted for a first look and Truro Vineyards generously allowed us to use their upper vineyards as our location. Love among the grapes! We were able to take some time and walk around town taking photos before we met up with the wedding party at the beach. This was a pretty big wedding party. The Best Man pointed out in his speech that the size of the wedding party was indicative of what wonderful people Rob & Jenny are – that they had so many close friends that they wanted in their wedding, and that agreed to be in their wedding (shhh – it’s totally true – they are very very cool and nice). I had fun with them all day! Not only were they great in photos, but this was one wedding party that could really dance! Wait until you get to those reception photos!
The ceremony was held right at the base of the Pilgrim Monument and the reception was in a tent right there on the lawn. Some fun facts for you… The Monument is the tallest all-granite structure in the United States. President Theodore Roosevelt laid the cornerstone for the Monument in 1907. And on September 7, 2013, a windy Saturday afternoon, Rob and Jenny were married there in a heartfelt ceremony surrounded by their family and friends on one side and the ocean on the other.
Here are some of the people who helped make this wedding day so perfect:
Flowers: Kelley’s Flowers
Hair & Make-up: I Do – On-site Hair and Face
Cakes: Wildflour Bakery
Officiant: Reverend Richard Fernandez
Ceremony Dress: Watters
Reception Dress: Sarah Seven
DJ: Chris Baker
The bride and groom came up with their own brilliant hashtag for their wedding so that all the guests could hashtag their photos and there would be one receptacle for them. It was a great idea! To hit the point home, during the reception, the guests got these fun-colored light-up styrofoam sticks (tubes? swords?) that they could wave around, and each one had the correct hashtag label written on it. The guests had a blast, and so did the photographers! The entire scene made for some dynamic and colorful dancing photos! We ended the night with a Cape Cod sparkler send-off – not even the wind could stop the guests from getting those sparklers up and ready!
Jenny & Rob, thanks so much for having us along for the ride! Congratulations!
Rob & Jenny’s first dance was to Adele’s “One and Only.”
