Most Massachusites know that Salem is SO much more than the witches we learned about in grade school. It’s boating and sunsets and culture all wrapped up into one incredible little town. And when you layer in a beautiful wedding – with subtle nautical details, a couple that is all style and photos from Zac Wolf – onto the already lovely backdrop, well Salem simply gets even more lovely.

From the bride..My husband Anthony and I didn’t have a set place we wanted to have our wedding. Once we started touring venues, we decided that having an outdoor wedding on the water in historical Salem, MA made the most sense for us. We both love nautical style and historic New England, so Salem was the perfect spot for our wedding.
We didn’t really have a wedding theme, but we tried to include dots, stripes, and anchors into as many details as we could, without over doing it. From the striped ribbons on the flowers, to the dotted stripes on our invitations, to the anchor socks the groomsmen wore, we successfully showcased our love for nautical style. The Salem Waterfront Hotel and Marina was a perfect venue to show off these details. We were fortunate to have the first outdoor wedding at the venue and we’re so glad we got to take advantage of the beautiful backdrop of the wharf on our big day.
We can’t say enough about Zac Wolf’s photos from our wedding day. We wanted him to capture our day from a candid point of view that showed our genuine reactions throughout the day rather than just having traditionally posed photos. He did exactly that and gave us some unbelievable images that we’ll have forever to look back and remember our special day.
After months of planning our wedding day was beautiful. The ceremony was short, but incorporated some of our favorite music and the reception was a great party. We spent the whole night on the dance floor with our families and friends, which was exactly how we wanted to celebrate becoming Mr. and Mrs.
