*As seen on Style Me Pretty*
As part of their toast to the Bride & Groom, Sarah's bridesmaids Amanda & Katie, decided to share with the newlywed couple advice about marriage. But being newly married themselves, instead of offering their own advice, they decided to interview couples of varying years of marriage who were in attendance on Sarah & Justin's wedding day. It was a lovely and thoughtful gift for the Bride & Groom, one that they can keep with them always. One of the most beautiful encouragements Sarah & Justin could have received was from Sarah's own Mom. Her advice : Marriage is like the tide. When it's in, it's oh so very good. When it's out, it's out. But persevere together because the tide always comes back in again."
I couldn't imagine a better metaphor in life or in marriage than the coming and going of the tide. Fitting as Sarah & Justin were married at the water's edge at the beautiful Wequassett Golf & Resort Club on Cape Cod. What a great reminder that commitment is not just for the best of times. Whether the tide is in or out, Sarah & Justin can walk through life together knowing that their commitment to each other will stand the test of time, when the tide is high or until it comes back in again.
Sarah & Justin wanted their guests to experience all the beauty of the Cape. Surrounded by a warm summer breeze and the beautifully manicured grounds of the Wequassett Resort, Sarah & Justin's guests were treated to stunning ocean views and the very best Cape Cod has to offer. Sarah meticulously chose each detail to create a timeless and elegant feel to the day, reflecting who Sarah & Justin are together. In short, it was breathtaking.
Sarah & Justin, thank you for allowing us to be a part of something so incredible. To give us a glimpse into your relationship and allowing us to capture your love on camera. It was a joy to be there to celebrate your union with your friends and family and I hope your images transport you back to this day for many years to come!!
We started the day at the home of Sarah's parents, a beautiful and historic house surrounded by beautiful gardens!
Sarah carried a delicate handkerchief with her new initals embroidered into the design.
Sarah, I can't, you are stunning!
The gardens at Sarah's home were the perfect mix of Cape Cod charm.
Over at Wequassett, Justin got ready for the day with his Groomsmen in their suite overlooking the bay.
The men wore tailored suits with bow ties, a classic approach.
Sarah & Justin decided to have a First Look and I'm SO glad they did. It was an incredibly emotional moment for the two.
The long sitting porch at the Wequassett provided just the right amount of charm (and shade!) for the Bride & Groom portraits.
Sarah I just couldn't get enough of your Bridal Look! How amazing is her structured Le Spose Di Gio gown?!
Sarah is the type of person who makes friends for life, so fittingly she was surrounded by special woman who have been by her side through it all.
Flower by Fancy created a stunning pallete of pinks and creams for Sarah's bridesmaids.
The Groom and his Groomsmen cleaned up pretty well too ;)!
The warm breeze, the sunshine and the lush lawn of Wequassett all made for the perfect backdrop for Sarah & Justin's ceremony.
This moment between Sarah's parents with Sarah & Justin was over in the briefest of seconds, but stands to be my favorite from the whole day.
The couple's vows were touching, personal and filled with love.
Mr & Mrs!!
After the ceremony Sarah & Justin walked the lawn at Wequasset for a few "We're MARRIED" portraits together.
There was a lot of PINK at this wedding...I didn't mind.
The toasts to Sarah & Justin we're filled with personal jokes, stories and admiration for this special couple.
Following toasts, dinner and dessert, the amazingly talented Kahootz Band kept the evening's festivities going with LOTS of dancing!!
