Give me a shake and shout Hooray!!

Hey All! As promised, here's a few more highlights from Adam and Stephanie's charming, rustic, detail-oriented, rainy day affair in Peabody, from last weekend. So fun!

Stephanie's lovely, minimalist 30's inspired sheath gown perfectly fit in with the minimalist, understated feel for the day.
Not to mention her long blong hair, which she wore down, clean and straight for the day. Lovely...
Since it was rainy, I had to get creative in finding a good spot to do the reveal between Adam and Stephanie. I found this funny little room in the back of the carriage house full of old antique hunting equipment. There was this steep, rickety landing up above that I crawled into to get some birds-eye shots of these two seeing each other for the first time. I had never done an angle like this before, so I was a little nervous, but I thought it would be fun to try something different. I think it worked out!

I was obsessed with this little girl's face. There's just something classic about her dark eyes and round cheeks...I felt like this was the face of children in old photographs or something.





In lieu of confetti, rice or bubbles, Stephanie found this charming little tamborines which were distributed to each of the guests, to coax them down the aisle...
Each table cloth was different--Adam and Stephanie's table had this fabulous, brightly colored retro-floral little number. Love love love.
To serve as both table numbers and favors, Adam and Stephanie made homemade candied citrus peel, and gave each guest their own jar, complete with colorful fabric covers and hand-typed name tags!
Because of the rain, the ceremony was moved into the reception area at the last second--I was a bit worried about the light as the barn has very high, dark ceilings. But as you can see here--the light was more beautiful than any photographer could hope for...ahhhh....cloudy window light...

Love these little details--Adam's tie in this old fashioned plaid print, and the bright yellow dahlia boutonniere was just perfectly punctuate Stephanie's vision for her rustic wedding.
