Intimate Coastal Wedding Inspiration - Gloucester, MA

Lynne Reznick

Coastal Styled Shoot Lynne-0129.jpg

Early this Spring I got together with another photographer and an event coordinator to dream up this coastal inspired styled shoot. We wanted it to be classic coastal with a subtle twist and to have an intimate feel. We were thinking of a couple eloping with a handful of close family and friends as their guests. And we wanted a slightly more dramatic setting so we headed north to the rocky beaches of of the North Shore. We ended absolutely falling in love with the semi-secluded feeling of Half Moon Beach in Gloucester! The sunken beach and the rocky coast enclosure were the perfect backdrop for creating n intimate, yet dramatically styled elopement. The stone steps built right into the rock-side were one of my favorite features of this beach too - allowing us to tell a natural story of bride and groom descending onto the beach for their ceremony and a beautiful dinner with their loved ones.

When it came to styling the details, we intentionally decided on a tropical print featuring large palm leaves (the twist!). But we chose it in that quintessential New England color palette of Navy and cream. The oversized bouquet and dramatic florals above the tablescape were designed to create movement and give a nod to the neighboring ocean view. And they served as major statement pieces. The florals over the table were full of hydrangea - a classic New England floral, but the overhead display with flowers and greens dripping down provided a bit of elegant flair. The tablescape included the modern use of plexiglass for the table number, mixed with rustic coastal elements like the farm table and shells as place cards. The carefully selected bubble-like glass charger plates and curved flatware each also contributed to the coastal elements incorporated into the tablescape. We wanted everything to feel like it was a natural choice that reminded you of the curve of the coastline and the flow of the ocean.

Vintage door frames created a simple, rustic scene for our ceremony that allowed for the ocean to truly be the star. Similarly, the use of the vintage chair tied the old into this modern take on a beachfront wedding. And with a theme so much built on love and romance, the inclusion of vow books was important because the couple would definitely write and share their own vows.

Oh, and my brother and sister-in-law were our models. How fun is that?! They did an amazing job! XO

Classic Fall Stamford Yacht Club Wedding - Kristie & Andrew

Lynne Reznick

Classic Fall Stanford Yacht Club Wedding on the Water

Before the wedding bells and before their first dance to "The Real Thing" by Zac Brown Band at their Stamford Yacht Club wedding, Kristie and Andrew met in college at a physical therapy clinic they were both working at. They were friendly but didn't end up getting together until four years later when they reconnected. Kristie was working with Andrews sisters at the time and Andrew asked Kristie out on a date. They've been together ever since! The best way for me to describe these two is thoughtful and kind. They went out of their way to make family and friends feel special and loved on their wedding day and it was obvious that kindness and generosity guide them in their everyday lives as well.  

Getting Ready: Honoring Family

Kristie and Andrew bought a home together in the year prior to getting married - talk about a big year! A home and a wedding! And Kristie got ready in their new shared home. Such a special thing to be able to prepare to marry your soulmate in the home you share together. She had an amazing team for hair and makeup with hair by Kim West and makeup by Sue Berkoff. And she found her stunning gown by Kelly Faetanini at A Little Something White in Darien, CT. She had it altered to add the lace sleeves in honor of her mom, who wore lace sleeves on her wedding dress years before. It was a beautiful way to remember her mom. She also wore an heirloom hair comb and they got their wedding bands from Betteridge Jewelers. Andrew and his Dad wore custom navy suits from Suitsupply that had special messages stitched under the collars. Andrew also gifted socks from Sock Club to each of his groomsman and they were a fun pop of design and color. Andrew got ready with his groomsmen and his Dad and Kristie had her sisters and sisters-in-law, as well as her best friend, by her side as she got ready.

Ceremony at Our Lady of Star The Sea Church

They held the ceremony at Andrew's family church: Our Lady Star of the Sea. It was particularly special because the priest that married Andrew and Kristie had known Andrew since he was a kid and was able to speak personally about the journey Andrew has taken so far, and now how the two of them are embarking on a journey through life and of faith together. 

Portraits: Water Views and Sunset Skies

After the ceremony we dashed off for portraits at the family home right on the beach. The sunset was AMAZING and the calm waters and cotton candy skies made for a chilly! but beautiful backdrop for photos. The rich cranberry and navy tones popped against the sunset skies and the florals from Brewster Flower Garden were stunning. We then zipped over to the Stamford Yacht Club to catch the rest of the light as the sun was setting. It was a chilly 34 degrees by the time we finished portraits but Kristie and Andrew were troopers and snuggled a lot to keep each other warm :) And the photos come out amazing! I'll brave the cold with a totally in love couple any day of the week!

Reception: Wine Bottles, Hats, and Donuts (and dancing, of course!)

Andrew and Kristie were so thoughtful about the special touches they incorporated into their wedding. they love their community and wanted to keep vendors as local as possible. So they had local whiskey in their signature drinks and artisanal donuts from their favorite local bakery for dessert, along with their cake. And yes, I was BEYOND excited about the donuts. And Kristie knew I had a love for them - so she made sure I tried one. And they were AH-MAZING! They also both enjoy wine so they asked their guests to write well wishes and love notes on wine bottles, each labeled with a milestone anniversary. Now, as they celebrate their first anniversary, and their fifth, and their tenth, and their twenty-fifth anniversary, they'll share the bottle of wine designated for that anniversary and read the messages left by loved ones on their wedding day. I can't tell you how much I love this idea! I think I'm going to steal it when Scott and I renew our vows in a few years.

Andrew's Dad has a thing for hats. He told everyone that he has a thing for hats during his toast to the couple, and he proceeded to whip out a baseball cap with their custom wedding monogram logo (created by Andrew's mom!) on it. Now, this was adorable, but as it turns out, Andrew's dad wanted everyone to share in his love of hats and his love and Andrew and Kristie - so e had enough made for all of the wedding guests and they were put out for people to grab and wear throughout the evening! And the hats made their way onto the dance floor as people danced the night away to music from Dance To The Music Entertainment.

Walk Through A Wedding Workshop

Lynne Reznick

So, one of the things I was most excited about when taking the leap to go full time with my business was making the time/having the time to invest in my own development. To be a student again and to work on my craft. When I first started out six years ago, I did this more frequently and then life happened and that got harder to do. So I was beyond excited to attend the two-day Walk Through a Wedding Workshop last month led by the generous and knowledgable dynamic husband and wife team of Justin and Mary Marantz. 

And it was sooooo good! Not only was it pretty and styled and indulgent (they kicked things off with a three course meal and drinks at their home), but it was packed full and overflowing with information. I really signed up for the portion on lighting, and that was awesome, but it was so much more than that. It was a chance to reflect and learn about all aspects of my business. It was a great chance to get reenergized, to explore where I want my business and my photography to go next, and to remember why I love being a wedding photographer. The days were seriously 12 hours long because they were so filled with solid and valuable content. And of course, we took photos! So here are some of my favorites from the two days. And if you're a photographer looking to up your game - definitely check out Justin and Mary's workshop - it is very much worth the investment and then some!

And enjoy a couple behind the scenes shots at the end! We had an awesome group of inspiring and passionate women in our session.
