Tom & Laura: A Lake Pearl Wedding

The Cinderella carriage!

I had the pleasure of photographing Tom & Laura's wedding on June 1st, 2018 at the beautiful Lake Pearl event venue in Wrentham, MA. They were blessed with great weather! I always imagine the bride being so nervous for rain or winds in the days leading up to the big day.

Laura and Tom were a joy to work with, as was their wedding party. The maid of honor, Ashley, really fit her role and made sure everything went smoothly for both the bride, and for me.

Getting Ready

The venue was wonderful. They were so organized, and manage to pull off multiple weddings at the same time. I love when a venue has a place to hang the dress!

Some dapper groomsmen!

I also appreciate when my couples are a little silly! They knew just what to do.

The ceremony was outside on the lawn, in front of the gazebo which was decorated in flowers. Perfect for late Spring.

Look at that lean!

After cocktail hour, the guests were brought inside for dinner and the reception inside the dance hall.

My favorite thing I think from this day was the "Shoe game." I had seen videos of this game on Youtube in the past, but it was so much better to see in-person. The newlyweds hold one of each of their shoes (representing each other), while the Maid of Honor and Best Man pose  "which one of you..." styled questions for them to answer. They're back to back, so they can't see each other's answers, but the audience can. It always leads to belly laughs. I definitely want to do this at my wedding if I ever have one!

Congratulations Tom & Laura, and I wish you a lifetime of happiness together!
