Marina and Dan got married just two weekends ago at the always gorgeous seaside wedding venue, Hammond Castle Wedding in Gloucester MA. This was our first wedding of the 2015 season and I can’t think of a better way to kick it off!! Their day was absolutely stunning and Hammond Castle made the perfect backdrop for their seaside wedding!
Because Marina and Dan had us show up the day before to capture their beautiful rehearsal dinner we treated their wedding very much like a destination wedding 🙂 For destination weddings we try to capture some images of the local landscapes and people. In Marina and Dan’s case, we chose to wake up at sunrise and head down to Good Harbor beach which is arguably the most gorgeous beach on Cape Anne… we grabbed our cameras and captured the sun coming up the morning of Marina and Dan’s destination wedding.
Marina made such a beautiful bride! I absolutely loved that she chose to incorporate a bit of her love of country music (and big trucks) and wear cowboy boots for the first part of her wedding day! She also picked out a gorgeous reception dress with a set of beautiful white high heels to change into for dancing in the castle!
When I heard Marina and Dan’s first dance was going to be to the tune of “Shut up and Dance” by Walk the Moon, I knew it was going to be awesome… Matt and I had just been talking about how that is a must for a first dance song. They definitely didn’t disappoint their guests!
Marina and Dan, thank you so much for having us be a part of your fabulous wedding! We had a blast capturing your day and we hope you love your images!!
A huge thank you to all the other amazing vendors who worked hard on Marina and Dan’s wedding! We had a blast working with everyone!!
As an elopement photographer and outdoor enthusiast I get absolutely giddy with excitement when helping fellow adventure seekers, travelers, dreamers & fun-loving couples plan their experience based, intentional wedding days.
