Chris and Shannon’s Massachusetts museum wedding
I’m so excited to share one of my favorite weddings of 2010. This wedding actually happened to be on what was probably the most popular day to get married last year, 10-10-10. And here at The Goodness we like to make that count. So we packed up our bags and headed out to Massachusetts for Chris and Shannon’s wedding at the Fruitlands Museum just outside of Boston. This was just one of the many reasons why Geoff and I love what we get to do. Talk about amazing!
Look at the cute room the girls got ready in.
This dress was incredible. Why, hello gold lace, you are so lovely.
Shannon made the flowers herself! Aren’t they gorgeous?
Shannon and her mom were so cute.
Talk about a beautiful bride! Shannon looked so fabulous. I was kind of in love with her gold birdcage veil.
Yay for being silly!
Chris and his guys got ready at a nearby hotel then headed over to The Fruitlands Museum. Chris was so happy to get to see all of his friends from back home in NY who flew out to be there.
Let me tell you about this first look. Oh. My. Gosh! So beautiful. You can send me to New England in the fall ANY DAY. And what better way to say hi to your honey on your wedding day than with a little goose!
Seriously! The colors were amazing.
So on the drive up to the museum, we noticed a u-pick apple orchard and we were dying to take Chris and Shannon there. As we were walking away from our first look location, Shannon happens to mention an apple orchard up the road she’d love to go to! I was soooo excited! We only had about seven minutes at the orchard before we had to dash back but it was WORTH IT!
The ceremony was situated on an area of grass with trees and fall colors as far as the eye could see. Sigh…
Then it was off to the reception also at the museum. I was swooning hard for the details that Shannon designed and created herself! She had an acorn theme going throughout the wedding (love those table numbers) and all of the bottles were vintage and thrifted locally in Massechussets.
The little acorn monogram is a sneak peak at the wedding invitation design I did for Chris and Shannon. Shannon’s mom also used that cute little letterhead to make up itineraries and welcome packets for all of the out of town guests.В Click here to take a look at the full invitation suite!
Oh my goodness, the band Chris and Shannon found, Rockspring was nothing short of AMAZING! It would NOT be a bad thing if every wedding had a live bluegrass band. Seriously SO much fun.
Wow, did Shannon and her dad really rock the dance floor!
To “top” the night off, Chris and Shannon opted for an ice cream sundae bar instead of cake. And for the happy couple, a GIANT ice cream sundae!
It has been so hard to put into words how incredible this wedding truly was, but I tried my best. Hopefully the photos can speak for themselves because this day was unforgettable. Chris and Shannon, we cannot thank you enough for giving us the opportunity to be your wedding photographers. We know you are meant for each other and will have the happiest marriage. Congratulations from The Goodness!
