Fall Wedding at the Estate At Moraine Farm

With a groom-to-be in the States and his future bride finishing school in Ireland, this couple knows dedication – traveling abroad over 25 times while dating. But it all became worth it one beautiful fall day, with Linnea Tangorra taking that love and creating a celebration that shined. Untamed Heart Photography caught every kiss, and this gallery just about makes my heart burst.

From The Groom, Imran… We met four and a half years ago on St. Patrick’s Day through a mutual friend (Steve, Mandy’s best friend from college and Imran’s friend from law school) in Santa Monica. Mandy had just gotten into veterinary school in Ireland the week before we met, but we hit it off and never stopped making it work. We tried to sit down one day and figure out how many flights we’ve taken between the two of us, to be together over the four years that Mandy was away at vet school in Ireland. It has to be at least over 25. I proposed to Mandy last summer at Boston Logan International Airport when she came back for the summer after starting her final year of rotations in Dublin. We bought our first place in Waltham at the end of that summer before Mandy headed back to Dublin to finish vet school. Mandy moved back to Boston for good after finishing vet school in May and is nearly one third of the way done with her internship at Angell Animal Medical Center. We treasure the time we have together because that is something that has been limited for a majority of our relationship and couldn’t be more excited for the big day!

From The Bride…Sandy is originally from Baltimore and I’m from Beverly, Massachusetts. We met in Brooklyn, while he was in grad school for architecture and I was making my first music videos (I’m a filmmaker). But we bonded on a rock-climbing trip with mutual friends: playing new music for each other, singing and car-dancing the whole ride. We began dating and eventually moved to Los Angeles together, where we currently live.

We decided to have our wedding at my parents house in Beverly, MA, which is a really unique historic house. Planning the wedding, our focus was on having an epic dance party with amazing music which celebrated our two big families. We were married at Manchester First Parish church, which has great acoustics and a beautiful room-shaking organ. My talented sister Kat and bridesmaid Kelly, a bluegrass musician, sang a beautiful acoustic version of an Adele song, and Sandy’s cousin played Spanish Guitar. In addition, the Beverly High School Vocal Ensemble sang three beautiful acapella songs, including “In “Do you Realize” by the Flaming Lips. I still can’t believe that actually happened. The choral director Lyn is now my personal hero.

For the reception, we hired “Madhouse,” a soulful mo-town band that kept us dancing all night. My sister and Kelly both sang with the band for different songs: Kelly did a beautiful slow-dance version of “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” for our first dance, and everyone began singing along. It was a moment. Kat made a hilarious vampy entrance from a balcony, singing “Love me Like a Man,” which pretty much brought down the house with the help of a family friend Gabe on saxophone. We gave all the guests mix-CDs as party favors, which included songs from that fateful rock-climbing road trip. For the decor, we never really had a strict color scheme, just black bridesmaid dresses with gorgeous colorful flower arrangements by Chapmans florist. This included a flower crown, which we paired with a beautiful veil sewn by my Aunt Priscilla. My parents Jen and Gary and my mother’s friends, “The Design Team,” as we called them, all pitched in to decorate the tent with candles and borrowed chandeliers. In addition, Sandy’s parents threw an amazing Rehearsal Dinner the night before, with decor provided by Sandy’s Aunts and Uncles.

The best part of our wedding was bringing together so many wonderful, fun-loving people. The energy in the room was pumping with love and excitement and we danced long after the band stopped. It was such a whirlwind, we are so happy Daniel was there to beautifully capture this phenomenal experience.

From The Bride…The theme/concept was DIY Rustic Vintage. We wanted our wedding to reflect Alex and I in every way, and have unique and memorable aspects that touched our family and friends throughout the wedding day. We most of all wanted everyone to experience in the pure love and happiness, we were sharing that day in our commitment to each other. We fell in love with the rustic and romantic setting of Moraine Farm and knew it was our perfect venue to say “I do” and start our lives together. We shared our hand written vows to share with each other and our friends and family, which brought us and everyone else to tears (in the highlight video).

My mom, myself and maid of honor put a lot of work into every detail that was DIY including the signage, flowers, my dress, the family “tree”, programs, table names and centerpieces. I even wanted to make our signature drinks unique to us by naming them around our personalities the “Bubbly Bradley” and “Murphy Mule”. Throughout the day we had a subtle theme of A&A (Aidan and Alex), with wooden letters and & throughout the property as well as a large metal A&A.

My mom made the all the centerpieces from scratch and the flower arrangements (18!) as well as the Audrey Hepburn signage “The Best Thing in Life to Hold onto is Each other”, one of my most favorite quotes. We wanted to do something different than table numbers that we see at every wedding, so we decided on words that describe marriage (wonderful, love, forever, friendship). We made these as well.

Alex’s dad made us the wooden signage / guest board, and the birch trellis we got married under from a mere vision I had and they came out perfect! Alex’s Mom made our cake and all the desserts for the guests. My maid of honor designed the welcome sign for the ceremony, the appetizer sign and bar signs listing the signature drinks.

We met as neighbors in South Boston, we both had dogs and would run into each walking them around the block, from our first date we hit it off and knew we were the perfect fit we had been searching for. Alex makes me laugh every single day and still gives me those same butterflies he did when I first met him years ago. He pushes me to do better, be better and is a constant rock and support system when I need it most. Everyday is an adventure together, and we’re so excited to be joined as an official family now and someday start ours.

Since I was a little girl I dreamed of remaking my mother and grandmother’s dress into something of my own, after the ring when it was my turn to go “dress” shopping my mom and I both were so excited to create a unique work of art that was a family heirloom and had so much special meaning. I mean, when else in your life can you design a dress of your dreams that has so much special meaning.

My mother, Nancy wore the dress October 1st, 1977 when she married my dad Kevin. Before that, my Nana Betty Stangle wore the dress October 9th, 1940 when she married Frank. On May 24th, I wore my very own newly designed version to marry Alex. (We displayed before photos of the dress at cocktail hour for guests to see the transformation).

Since we met walking our dogs, and our dogs are such a big part of our life, we wanted to donate to our local animal shelter in lieu of favors. Also, Alex’s dog Charlie was a rescue dog. After going to so many weddings together, we both thought a donation favor is a nice reminder to give back to the community.

Alex and I both love good food, especially local farm-to-table. Elaine, Alex’s mother is a chef at a farm to table restaurant so it is very near and dear to our hearts, eating organic local foods. We are happy to say all the food served at our wedding was from Fireside Catering and farm to fork.

Most importantly, we wanted everyone to experience a lovely, unique and memorable wedding while feeling like family, both coming from two large Irish families (Bradley and Murphy), we really wanted it to seem like an intimate close family affair/celebration of love although there was 175 people, I think we really were able to make everyone feel the love and apart of our big day.
