Emma + Pete – Residence in Cohasset, MA

The day was cloudy for Emma and Pete’s wedding, but the rain held off for the ceremony that was held in the front lawn of the Pete’s father’s home.  It was modestly decorated, for the landscape itself was spectacular beyond words!  Programs, which were originally going to be used as fans, were handed out and served as cover from the few sprinkles of rain.  Guests took seats in white garden chairs as Emma, our beautiful bride, emerged from behind the house. Her bridesmaids were by her side in different styled royal blue dresses.  Emma and Pete exchanged vows on the front steps of the house, and then it was time to celebrate the newlyweds.

It was just a short walk over to the tent where the cocktail hour took place.  The first stop was the guestbook table, which had a personal touch.  The couple used a recipe book for guests to leave their signature.  The cook book is something Emma and Pete will use and always be remembered of their special day.  Also unique to this couple was the placecard table.  Used in place of tent cards were envelopes hung on ribbon from bulletin boards.  The boards were decorated with seashells and ribbons tying in the royal blue and beach theme.  Cocktail hour would not be complete without the beautiful landscape that spilled out onto the marina.
