Rustic September Wedding at The Ranch in Southwick, Massachusetts :: Sneak Peek :: Emily and Paul

While she was getting ready, Emily was so excited for Paul to the boutonnieres, made with shell casings that his best man secretly retrieved. She orchestrated it as a surprise for Paul who is a hunter, wanting there to be pieces of the wedding that could speak to who he is just as much as the rustic flowers and lace spoke to her. She had a wedding cake made with that in mind too, designed to be half white lace and half camo. I was really struck by those details, they were so sweet. It was really clear on Saturday how much these two love each other. Those little surprises planned before the wedding, they were just the start. The amount of emotion at their ceremony was tangible; I think everyone got choked up as Emily came down the aisle, tears in her eyes. That energy carried through the night with heartfelt toasts and then a whole lot of celebrating, including quality dance moves and a packed dance floor! Here's a little peek at their day!

Nonantum Resort Oceanside Wedding in Kennebunkport, Maine :: Delft Inspire Wedding :: Sneak Peek :: Caitlin and David

There are always going to be some weddings that really touch your heart. When your eyes are filling with tears as you hear the couple's vows or a father's toast. And you can feel how much love there is there. 

At Caitlin and David's wedding this past weekend there were many of those moments. These two are so beautiful, inside and out, and so in love. And one of my favorite moments was just after they had come down the aisle together as newly weds, Caitlin realized a special piece of their ceremony was skipped over and she and David turned right back around. They came back down the aisle, with their whole wedding party, everyone grouping together in no particular order. So that their friends could perform a song just for them. It was such a sweet moment and one that you just know you'll always remember. And it was just one of the great pieces of a truly beautiful day! 

I can't wait to share more photos from their gorgeous oceanside wedding at the Nonantum Resort in Kennebunkport; the first look, the happy tears at the ceremony, the huge laughs during the toasts, quiet moments at sunset, and a dance floor that I'm surprised held up as everyone jumped and sang! But for now, here's a sneak peek for you!
