Laura & John: The Neighborhood Club {March 29, 2014}

Going through Laura & John’s wedding photos to write this blog post, all I can say is “wow”! Surely one of the most fun-filled weddings I have photographed, starting with getting ready at the Quincy Marriott, during the ceremony at St. Agatha’s in Milton and right through until the last dance at The Neighborhood Club, there wasn’t one moment that didn’t exude Laura & John’s love for each other, and for their friends and family who joined them that day.

Quincy Marriott

Getting ready at the Quincy Marriott was a breeze for Laura. All smiles, no stress. She makes it look easy!

Laura & John’s wedding at St. Agatha’s was unique in that it was modernly steeped in tradition. A very cool priest, Rev. Murphy, let the day dictate itself instead of trying to run the show made for an easy-going, nicely flowing and worry free ceremony.

Jen & Cody {July 6, 2013} The Neighborhood Club

With all the crazy weather we’ve had this season, Jen & Cody got lucky on their wedding day. It was warm with some clouds, and the rain stayed away. The alluring bride and her girls were getting ready at The Quincy Marriott, and so it was there Jen & Cody would also have their “first look”.

The stage is set, and Cody is anxiously awaiting his first look of his bride. This photo, one in a series, truly captures all of the emotion, excitement and bliss that is happening and that is to come…

And once their eyes have met, the anxiety melts into a calm serenity that will set the mood for the rest of the day.

A kiss for luck and we're on our way... (We've only just begun).

Jen & Cody’s wedding ceremony was nothing short of spectacular. One of Jen’s bridesmaids, Julia, doubled as their officiant. The colors were amazing, the smiles were stunning and the words they spoke were both personal and winsome.

Once everyone was in place, Julia was by her friends, upfront and center, to help them exchange the vows that will change their lives forever in a few short moments.

There’s always time for an extra hug, a well wish, a moment to reflect.

Always take that extra moment to stop and hug the ones you love.

Jen & Cody had Epic Entertainment on hand to take over the Master of Ceremonies and entertainment for the evening. Bring in the wedding party, and start the fête!

A wedding day is full of “firsts” and traditions, and Jen & Cody did not leave out the tradition of the wedding cake. The wedding cake dates back to ancient Rome, and generally symbolizes good luck to and for the new couple. Jen & Cody’s wedding cake, by White’s Bakery, fits the bill.

Jen & Cody's wedding cake, made by White's Bakery, was an obvious hit, but the looks on their faces.

As the night wore on, there was much tripping the light fantastic attended to and performed by all. You’ll have to check in with Jen & Cody for more photographic proof, but here’s one peek…

(Well don't skip romance beause) you're old enough to dance the night away... Dance, dance, dance the night away....

As the night winded down, we knew what a great wedding we had on our hands (and in our cameras). You, the reader, may or may not know Jen & Cody personally, but we think you’ll feel like you know them after reading their wedding blog post. A wonderful, fun couple who have a lifetime together ahead of them, we wish them well as they endeavor into married life.
