Jen and Kate: married in CT!

Whoop whoop WHOOOOOOP!!!!!   Jen and Kate got married and we got to be there!  So many cool elements to the perfect summer wedding, but the most special element, obviously, is that two people can marry who the love and who they’re committed to building a life with.   This was an absolutely perfect DIY backyard wedding, and Cyndi and I were jaw dropped at the simple, but not too simple because it took a lot of work, perfection.

The location was at a place they found on AirBnB on 6 acres in Connecticut.  They had the shindig catered by Mei Mei food truck (sans truck).  Their dance floor was wooden barn board (!!), and their ceremony was under a big, shady tree.  The backdrop of their ceremony alter was folded paper doilies, they had a cool version of a photo booth, and lawn games, and cold drinks to occupy the masses.  We loved every thing about this day right down to the non assigned seating to the speeches made by their parents.   Two of my best friend, Nina and Laura, of American Echoes, sung them down the aisle, and Nathan of Trephin is responsible for hair and make up.  His man, AJ did the flowers, both centerpiece and bouquets.   Truly everything was gorgeous.  And I wouldn’t wish it on a cooler, nicer couple.  Both Kate and Jen are kind and generous and cool and beautiful, talented and smart, and loved by everyone who knows them.  They worked their asses off for this wedding, and it all paid off. Everything was perfect.  Thank you guys so much.  LOVE!!

Jennie and Nick: Married in NYC!!!!!!!!!!!!

Holy SHIT we loved this wedding! And we loved this wedding because we LOVE THESE PEOPLE!! Jennie found us when her fellow Yale Law School student showed her his wedding photos.  hollah. Nick and Jennie met each other on their first day of…pre school.. on the Upper West Side of NYC.  Like ya do.  They were classmates and friends throughout school and reunited as lovahhs after college.  Today the live in CT so Jennie can finish up law school, and Nick is a musician who makes the commute back and fort to Manhattan for rehearsals and gigs. Their wedding ceremony was at Nick’s church, and the reception was a few blocks away in the basement of Jennie’s families church. The way Fallon Carter Events absolutely transformed a church basement was mind blowing!  This was truly one of the best weddings of my career and it was purely because of the couple and the families of these two people.

Nick wrote and sung a song for Jennie at their ceremony, he and his friends sung a cappella to her during the reception, he and his family sung and played piano before the left for the ceremony and then group hugged before they walked into the church (!!??).  Jennie, Nick, Cyndi and I walked through the city streets for photos, and they report that that was a big highlight for them.  Sure was for us, too!  They had a crown making station at the cocktail hour which is a GREAT idea! And Nick wore the high tops that he wore for their first date.  C’mon.   A hilarious side note that Cyndi and I still choke on our laughter about is when a guest *literally* took a fork to the wedding cake long before they officially cut and stood there eating the fucking cake with a fork.  Cyndi actually collapsed in laughter when I told her.   Fallon, the wedding planner, couldn’t help but laugh either.  And so did Jennie and Nick, of course.  Cuz it doesn’t matter.  And it’s hilarious.:)

To the nicest couple of people ever ever ever in the whole wide world.  Thank you very much for having us.  WE LOVE YOU!

Kristyn and Garrett: married in at The Samoset in Maine!

Thank the good Lohhd that pictures say 1000 words because that’s gonna be the only way to get across how beautiful, emotional, and perfect this day was.   Kristyn and Garrett got married at the really beautiful resort called Samoset in Rockport, ME, but honestly it could have been anywhere and it still would have floored me.  These two people are so strong and so in love and so committed  and so resilient and so beautiful.  I legit bawled my eyes out from the second I walked in to the second we left.  The weather was perfect, Kristyn is the prettiest person on the planet, and Garrett is the coolest. What else do you need to know? Time for some photos.  I love you guys, thank you so much!!

Annie and Mike: a DIY backyard wedding on a farm in Jersey.

It’s Annie and Mike’s kind of weddings that make us feel like the luckiest crew in the world.  This wedding was beautiful, unique, photogenic, honest, and creative.  Not unlike the happy couple themselves.  Mike’s older sister is one of my best friends which is how we found our lucky asses here. The forecast called for it to rain on their backyard farm wedding all damn day, and sure enough the skies really opened up just as soon as the ceremony started.  They grabbed a vintage suitcase from their card and gift table and used it as an umbrella, and the show went on! I love that!  Their family and very best friends braved the rain and stood in the downpour for their vows.  We love that shit!  The skies cleared up soon after and the party ensued.  It was a memorable, beautiful, perfect day.  After all, no rain, no rainbows.:)Thank you guys!  We love you!

Alexa and Matt: A wedding at The Four Seasons, Boston.

I met Alexa and Matt when I was fostering four newborn puppies during that horrible New England winter.  They came in my house in JP, we sat on the floor and made cooing noises to puppies that looked like hamsters.  She told me that she grew up at The Four Seasons.. (record screech). No, really.. like… her childhood home was the mother fucking Four Seasons Hotel in Boston.  Her mom was a single mom from Day One, and that said mama is friends with wedding planner extraordinaire Janie Haas.  Basically I threatened her life if she didn’t hire me.

If you think of someone who grew up at a luxury hotel, you wouldn’t be picturing Alexa.  I meet *a lot* of women in this gig, and I will stand by the statement that Alexa Rae Wright is one bad ass, hilarious, smart, rad, fun, real, beautiful, kinda shy, absolutely awesome human being.  I consider her and Matt friends and I would run across a busy street if I saw them just to hug the shit out of them.   Matt is a Scituate fireman…hot…and he’s just the most down to earth, cool dude.  He has a zillion friends, to know him (and her) is to love them, and their wedding really showed that.   They chose buying a boat over going on a honeymoon, and walking into her wedding she already felt like an old friend.

Enough with the mushy shit.  Janie Haas and Maria (from Janie Haas events) put on a fucking wedding that dropped JAWS, I tell ya.  That room looked like an actual fairy tale.  It was STUNNING.  Her ceremony arch made me practically cry, and every single detail was the prettiest shit you’ve ever seen.  Gah. I die.  I’m real glad I brought my camera because I actually like looking through the photos just to remind myself I was there.

Thank you so much to everyone involved. To Janie and Maria for recommending us, and to Alexa and Matt for trusting us.   We love you guys so much I can’t stand myself.  Thank you! LOVE!
