Everything about Martha and Josh's wedding day still makes me smile! And it's so nice to remember a sunny day on a beach looks like as it snows and rains outside! These two celebrated with an intimate group of friends and family at a private residence on the Cape in Pocasset, Mass. They actually found the place on Air B&B, which I wouldn't have ever thought to do and was clearly a great idea!
I'm still in love with the understated elegance of everything Martha and Josh chose. Martha's dress and hair look both classic and modern. Josh was stylin' with matching socks and handkerchief, as well as some really great acorn cuff links to celebrate the Fall. We setup a private 'Frist Look' for them near the house. Its was really sweet and beautifully emotional, just a few tears and a lot of kisses! After taking some time together and snapping some photos, they got ready to head to the beach.
Their wedding ceremony was officiated by Fiona, the bride's sister, right by the water with an ocean breeze, lots of sun, and a feeling of intimacy as everyone crowded close. After a sand pouring and saying 'I do' they walked and golf-carted (that's a verb, right?) back to the house they rented for a low key evening, including a delicious clambake, oysters, some watermelon/feta app I was a little obsessed with, chowder, and both apple and pumpkin pies. To make this wedding even more of a photography dream experience, Martha and Josh headed back to the beach with me just before sunset, braving the chilly winds that had kicked up, to create some extra photos. They even wandered into the nearby brush for a couple of my favorite photos (like the one above). We ended the evening with Martha and Josh lighting up a couple of sparklers (thank you Mom!) on the beach for a little more fun and romance!
