Tania and Jeff reached out to me last September to discuss their Cape Cod wedding plans for July 4th 2012 - I remember our first conversation as I was in up state New York at one of my best friend's weddings, but wanted to be sure I could speak with them and answer any questions they had about my services. It was a second marriage for both Tania and Jeff and their children were a very important part to their wedding.
After researching homes to rent and have a wedding on property, they decided to have their wedding of 35ppl at the Sea View in Dennis. Their ceremony was on a small public beach across from the Sea View officiated by Faith Lavender. At the Sea View, we set-up their dinner tables and a small dance floor in the bar area and they had late night s'mores and watched the fireworks from the patio. And because the 4th was also the groom's son's birthday, they surprised him with an ice cream truck! It was a fun night for Tania and Jeff with close family and friends.

Recently I worked a wedding for a fabulous couple at a private home on the water in Mattapoisett, MA - what a hidden gem! After such a great experience with this couple, their vendors and the realization that I could still see the Cape Cod train bridge from their house, I have decided to expand our services throughout South Coast, MA! In the past I have also worked weddings on the water in South Dartmouth - another beautiful location!
So if you are looking to get married anywhere on the South Coast, which to us includes Buzzards Bay, Wareham, Rochester, Marion, Mattapoisett, New Bedford, and Dartmouth, let us know and we can help you plan from full service to day of assistance and consultations!
I had the pleasure of working with a very fun and unique couple - Elizabeth and Will - this June at the Wellfleet Preservation Hall. They had a beautiful Cape Cod day with lots of touches of each of their heritage melded into their wedding. From Spanish and Indian decorations to a real sitar player straight from India and a custom wedding menu from the Casual Gourmet, this wedding was extremely special. Johanna from Chattman Photography shared some of their images with me below - stunning photography for a unique wedding.

I had the pleasure of working a wedding yesterday at the Popponesset Inn in Mashpee for Mallory and Matt - high school sweethearts! They introduced a new trend to me at their wedding ceremony which took place at St. Elizabeth Seton church in North Falmouth. It is called the "Unplugged Wedding or Ceremony". Basically couples formally ask their guests - on the program or with a sign or brief announcement - to put away their cell phones and cameras during the ceremony and that everyone be in the moment with the couple and their families as they share their vows and exchange their rings. Not to mention that the couple has probably spent a pretty penny on their professional photographer, who will be getting fabulous shots throughout the ceremony that could potentially be ruined by others cameras in the way or flashes at inopportune times.
Mallory and Matt's photographer - Leah Haydock - was their inspiration as Leah shared a bit about having an unplugged wedding on her blog recently. If you take a look at it, you will see some of the photos she shares and how insane it can be! Even if you do a quick search for it on Google, you will see how popular this idea has become!
Now an unplugged ceremony is not for everyone - but I have to say I was definitely into it. I mean, let's face it, the ceremony is the real reason why you are having the party, so why not just chill for those 20-40 minutes, be in the moment and save the photos for the crazy fun night you are about to have!
What do you think? Plugged or Unplugged?
Plan. Relax. Enjoy.
