One of my bucket list destination weddings came true this July and it couldn’t of gone better with a great team and most of all AMAZING couple! I had a blast with this couple at their stunning engagement session seen here. Jenny and Timmy originally were going to get married in Maine but Jenny grew up in Martha’s Vineyard and was feeling the pull of home. Around the holidays the couple decided to switch locations, so we did too! Nothing like putting some Mainers on Martha’s Vineyard . I love destination weddings because of the unknown, I actually do really well and thrive in a new environment. The couples first look and portraits was down at the original site of the movie Jaws! I mean come on how cool is that? Their ceremony was held at a beautiful and small light house known as east Chop Light, and they boogied the night away with music from an amazing DJ and Band the boogie at the East Chop Beach Club. I loved hearing all of the stories of the couple where they grew up, the connections to the island etc. There is just as much pride as Mainers have for Maine is Islanders do for Martha’s Vineyard. One of my favorite images of Jenny at her ceremony with happy loving tears streaked all the way down her cheeks. Thank you for a wonderful night, we had a blast!
Love & Joy
What was your favorite moment/ memory of your wedding day?It’s hard to pick one thing but I did enjoy the first look. First time seeing him was wonderful, calmed my nerves gave a special moment together. Also, I don’t think I’ll ever forget when Timmy said his vows. His eyes turned red, tears filled his eyes and streamed down his face. His voice was choked up too. I’ve never seen him cry in our six years together and that was really special to me and then of course I cried too.
How did you guys meet?I met Timmy through his cousin Chrissy. Chrissy is my best friend from college. A bunch of us friends went to Chrissy’s family cabin in Maine to hike for the weekend. Timmy was there too. After hiking the white mountians we went on our first date.
Any word of advice/ wisdom for couples?Remember that it’s your day, do what makes you happy
