Coastal New England Wedding in Summer

Josselyn and Matthew had a perfect summer wedding. Set on the South Shore of Boston their wedding day was one filled with personal touches like the centerpieces made of flowers picked from their backyard to the hand drawn pictures from her students displayed on the dessert table. Friends and family alike helped bring their day together, a day they had dreamed of for a long time. 

Josselyn & Matthew, it was a joy to document your wedding day, to witness as you promised forever to each other and to celebrate alongside your loved ones!! Enjoy some of my favorite images!!
