today’s love story:
Their Eastern Point Yacht Club Wedding
and all the magical moments that made it
Emily + Chris had the most magical early Fall wedding at Eastern Point Yacht Club in Gloucester.
The day started quiet, with beautiful florals by Lilac & Lily and a calm yacht club, patiently awaiting its guests. Emily has incredible style, so I wasn’t surprised to see the elegant touches throughout the day – like those gorgeous Sarah Flint heels, floral robes and the flowers.
My favorite combination these days is a black tux + oceanfront venue. It’s the epitome of class + luxury.
Emily + Chris planned a first look on the lawn behind the Eastern Point Yacht Club, overlooking Lighthouse Cove before hoping in a boat for a cruise around the harbor.
If there’s one thing I know about Emily through the wedding planning process, she does things her own way – she had ladies of honor, and I love that she invited them to wear their own choice of dress. Coordinated but not matchy-matchy. And the bouquet + matching flower crown ties it all together!
There are so many great locations for portraits, and I love that our associate team – Shannon and Amanda – explored them all with these cuties before their oceanfront wedding ceremony on the lawn overlooking the Lighthouse Cove Harbor in Gloucester.
Married! While guests enjoyed the start of cocktail hour, these two ducked away for quiet and a little dance just the two of them.
A portrait with your favorite 100+ people? DONE. Kudos to Shannon for getting this done! Then as the sun set, Emily + Chris got to light the cannon, a Yacht Club tradition, before heading into the tent for dinner and dancing.
We first learned about the cannon tradition at Melissa + Evan’s Annisquam Yacht Club wedding!
This one has such a film feel! Its slightly out of focus which gives it a dreamy and surreal feel, and makes me want to dig my film camera out of the basement.
