What do you get when you mix two high school sweethearts, a bed and breakfast, and one amazing photographer like Lisa Berry? Give up? You get one of the sweetest and most charming weddings ever! I’m seriously loving the au natural simplicity of the surroundings. And the fact that it’s on the Cape? Well, that just makes it even better! Head over to the gallery for even more summertime sweetness.
From Lisa Berry, Photographer: Both creative RISD grads, these two managed to tame their perfectionist, project oriented tendencies, and worked hard to keep their wedding very simple. I was impressed by their restraint when it came to the details. They focused on the big picture, on their relationships and the things that really mattered, and the day felt substantial and joyful. They were high school sweethearts, so the wedding was a long time coming!
Emily knew just where to splurge and where to hold back and managed this sweet wedding on a modest budget. The whole event felt balanced, and in perfect proportion, much like the bride herself. They invited a small gathering of best friends and family and held the ceremony in the garden behind their Cape Cod Bed & Breakfast. Jon’s step-mother made the flower arrangements with Emily’s ideas, and they added a soft subtle color to the reception rooms. The garden basically adorned itself, and they added only the white japanese lanterns and a very natural arch at the front. Photography was a splurge for them, and they brought in a film photographer and fellow RISD grad.
Cupcakes were brought in from their favorite bakery in NY – taste over looks with these little cakes, possibly the most scrumptious I have ever had and I eat a lot of wedding cake. The men intentionally left off having boutonnieres, and it gave a clean look to their suits. The maids were chic in short midnight blue sheath dresses, and held small bouquets of gathered roses. While dressing, Emily wanted to recreate a b&w photograph of her mother putting on her veil from a few decades back. In the frame, you can see Emily with her veil in the mirror, and also the original print in the shot.
