Stylin’ Cape Cod Wedding at the Sea Crest Beach Hotel

If your currently pining for the warm, sunny days of summer, I’ll do you one better. That magical summer light and a wedding so sweet your heart will warm the rest of your body right up. It’s perhaps better than being at the beach. Captured by Servidone Studios Photography, this wedding, with it’s convertible sunset cruise and perfect use of seersucker, is smiles guaranteed.


From Servidone Studios Photography…It is ALL about the details. Sara and Jason are two of the most easy going people you’ll meet. Their day was full of details that were personalized just to them. It was 100 degrees or so in Boston that day, but, on the cape, with the ocean breeze… it was the absolute perfect day.

Sara’s lace Pronovias dress was perfection, along with her beachy Born wedges and fabulous headband. Jason’s attire was beyond “beach hip” with his floral tie, J.Crew seersucker suit, and sea green Sperry top siders; Sara and Jason were stylin’.

In addition to their attire, every detail contributed to their stylish day. From the 1960s Imperial Convertible they drove from their ceremony, to the steel drum band, to the orange beach umbrellas at the Sea Crest Beach hotel…

At the reception, their details were full of sea shells, glass, and other DIY items.

Sara and Jason are two of the most easy going people you’ll meet; a casual chic affair was perfect for them. Congratulations to this blissfully happy and in love couple! (Who are currently expecting their first child… Well, other than their weimaraner!)

The NotWedding Bridal Shower from Hike Photography

It’s been over three years since I was a Bride, but this stunning shower designed by Cape Cod Celebrations and captured by Hike Photography for The NotWedding would have been my bridal shower dream come true. Overflowing with florals from Patrice Milley and hosted at the oh-so-gorgeous Sea Crest Beach Hotel, I think you would be hard-pressed to find a bride-to-be that didn’t want to celebrate in this style. It’s absolutely stunning. See it all here.

From Cape Cod CelebrationsThe NotWedding is coming to Cape Cod this November so a bunch of the participating vendors got together on a beautiful Cape Cod fall day and designed a bridal shower shoot to promote the event! The shoot was inspired by The NotWedding Cape Cod’s inspiration board, which is a secret until after the event, but boy is it a beauty!

At the the styled shoot, Peyton, the NotBride for the event, was being showered by her friends poolside at the Sea Crest Beach Hotel in Falmouth. The girls drank champagne, completed a DIY paint-by-number canvas for Peyton, had delicious desserts, cooled off by the pool and sent a wish lantern into the sky for her at the end of the party, after opening presents of course! The girls left that night with nail polish favors.

Jamie, from Cape Cod Celebrations, designed the shoot with the help of one of the Hike girls, Alissa. Kelly Hike, and her sister Alissa, are the photographers from Hike Photography and they did an amazing job capturing the details and the fun ideas that we wanted to share! The lighting could not have been better! Patrice Milley brought in some gorgeous flowers to compliment the table and linens from Rentals Unlimited, and Vanessa from the The Chocolate Rose Cake Shoppe & Bakery put together a beautiful cake and dessert spread for the ladies. M. Smith & Company designed the invitation and place cards and OnCape Time provided signs for the shower. Shoreline Interiors, a high end shop in Dennis, provided the gift for the bride, a set of 2 Match pewter ice tea glasses, hand-crafted from Italy.

Cape Cod Wedding from Katie Pietrowski Photography

I love coastal New England. And it’s weddings like this one from Katie Pietrowski Photography that make me remember all the reasons why. Beyond its gorgeous beaches, delicious clambakes, and shingled houses – what I absolutely love the most are the people that retreat to the stunning sandy shores. Take these two newlyweds for example, they nailed that seaside chic feel on their big day in a way you would only see in New England, and for that, I couldn’t love them more. See all of this seaside soiree here.


From the Bride… Tom and I were set up on a blind date by Tom’s roommate and one of my best friends, who were themselves best friends from Middlebury (they went on to get married themselves…I am convinced the setup was a ploy to make sure they ended up together!) But masterminded scheme, or fate…it ended up working! Tom and I dated for 3 years, before he proposed in a romantic/ridiculous fashion on a cold January night on the  Boston Harbor with a Pat Benatar impersonator to serenade us! (Pat B is my favorite).  

Planning the wedding was a ton of fun. I have always spent the summers in Falmouth, Cape Cod, and Tom had also been spending summers there with his grandparents, so it made perfect sense to have our wedding there, in the fields behind my parents’ house. Our vibe for the wedding was a relaxed summer feel from beach to field, we wanted it to feel very welcoming and low key. Basically an ideal summer weekend.

From there we just made the event our own, from the wedding party lunch on a schooner in vineyard sound, to a welcome cocktail party on the beach with bonfires surrounded by adirondack chairs made by Tom, his father and uncles, the beginning of the weekend couldn’t have been more fun!

And the wedding itself was no exception…it was pretty special to be able to invite everyone to my home and to share a place that was so important to me and Tom. As a sailor myself, the Sperry Tents made of sailcloth is just a magical venue set against the backdrop of the fields. We overstuffed our guests on tons of appetizers (Chef Roland is a genius with the apps) and oysters from the Shuck Truck. And then for dinner we mixed it up a bit by having our favorite Boston restaurant Orincco cater two of our favorite dishes. Well fed & boozed up (warning: those ball jars can hold a lot!), our guest took the dance floor by force, which isn’t hard when the band is Sultans of Swing! Of course, fake Pat Benatar made another appearance…it wouldn’t have been complete without her. And then we closed down the night with some Crab Rangoons – another personal element as my friends are all rang fans and dedicated celebrators of National Crab Rangoon Day (Feb. 13th!). The whole weekend was just perfect. And it was awesome to have Katie Pietrowski be able to capture it all from the first look to the last dance, she was able to capture all the little touches and all the guests experiences!

For all you beginning this process..HAVE FUN! It is a pretty awesome experience to craft an evening for all your friends and family. And even despite all the planning and hype, you will be blown away by the experience on your wedding day. The love, support and energy of everyone you love around you just can’t be described!
