Allison and Thomas are one of the many couples who had their original wedding plans affected by COVID this year. But despite this challenge, these two were determined to safely celebrate their love with each other and their families.
After photographing their engagement photos I knew these two would be great in front of the camera for their portraits. And I was so excited to be back at a venue I shot at last year!
While many of their wedding details had to change, two of them didn’t: their date and their location. August 1, 2020 at Danversport Yacht Club in Danvers, Massachusetts. It was a bright and sunny day for their closest friends and family to gather at their waterfront ceremony site. The water views were gorgeous and so appropriate since Allison and Thomas love sailing and the ocean!
I could tell Thomas was so excited to see Allison! She arrived and was escorted down the aisle by her parents. I turned to capture Thomas’ reaction and almost teared up a little myself! I seriously love an emotional ceremony reaction. Their ceremony, officiated by Karla Firestone of Marry Me Karla, was so perfect. I also couldn’t get over the stunning details and view from the altar!
After their vows were complete we captured their family formals. It was lovely to see so many people who have supported these two throughout their relationship! Then we moved on to their couple portraits. There were so many great spots around the venue for these! My personal favorite was the sunflowers and lighthouse.
Although it wasn’t what they initially envisioned, I know Allison and Thomas’ ceremony was such a special day. And now we have next August to look forward to their big party (or sequel wedding, as some like to call it!) I can’t wait for round two with this resilient and adorable couple.
