A Destination Wedding in Three Parts…. A Provincetown Wedding on the Beach

 

 

The members of this very fun wedding party got ready for the big day at Provincetown’s Surfside. Sarah had her dress custom made. She purchased fabric for each of her bridesmaids and asked that they have a dress made in their home towns. Each of these amazing women had a dress that suited her personality perfectly. Sarah, trusting her friends completely, didn’t see their dresses until they were wearing them on the wedding day. Sarah and Nick exchanged vows and tied the knot at the water’s edge. Their talented friends supplied the music. The couple  chose the Surf Club near MacMillion Pier for their reception. Beautiful toasts were made in English and French. They shared a wonderful meal with friends and family. They honored traditions of their families and came up with a few of their own. It was a lovely fun and elegant day.

Dreaming of warmer days… A Provincetown Elopement.

I love winter, but as the temperature dips low low, I must admit I am dreaming of warm summer evenings on the beach. Race Point Beach in Provincetown, MA is one of my favorite places in the world. The crowds of beachgoers clears out for the day just as the light begins to to get that soft magical quality. The beach is left with the sounds of the surf, the wonderful ocean breeze and the sea air. It is the perfect setting to elope. Photographing a wedding is always an honor. Being asked to photograph an elopement is quite a treat. It is one of those truly intimate experiences. On this lovely Cape Cod evening it was the happy couple, the Justice of the Peace, and me. It was such a pleasure to witness and document this wonderful couple’s vows.
