I've known Bev's family for many years and when it was shared that she was engaged to her Dutch boyfriend Auke I couldn't have been more excited! After meeting Auke over the summer I knew that he was the perfect fit for Bev. Together this couple can light up the room. Always ready with a smile and hug, they exude the kind of friendliness that makes strangers feel like old friends.
This past April they celebrated their wedding with family and friends who traveled from all over the world. Holland, Turkey, New England. They even live streamed the wedding ceremony so that loved ones around the world could celebrate with them. It was a joyous day made even more special by the loved ones who traveled (or watched!) long and far to be there to support this beautiful couple.
Bev and Auke chose details throughout their wedding that honored their unique backgrounds. Bev carried a bouquet of tulips, a nod to Auke's Dutch heritage. They were married in a quaint New England chapel, a testament to their strong faith and Bev's New England upbringing. Auke's family roasted the Groom with a hilarious skit, a Dutch tradition. Each aspect of the day honored their loved ones and paid homage to the people, experiences and heritage that make them who they are today.
It was an honor to be a small part of Bev & Auke's day, to witness as they brought their two lives together and celebrate alongside their family and friends! Enjoy their images!
