Tara & Will’s Oceanview at Nahant Wedding

It’s time for Will & Tara’s North Shore wedding highlight today! Their Oceanview of Nahant wedding is hands-down one of my most favorite weddings ever. I’m going to attempt to keep my thoughts short, otherwise I will never get this highlight up, but I will touch upon a few topics…

1. FAMILY: I absolutely adore these two families – we’ve been a part of many the Charnley Family life events, and there were so many familiar faces that it was that much more meaningful to be there. Thought I had just met Tara’s mom and sister, they were so warm and endearing that they quickly felt like familiar faces as well.

2. PLANNING: The day ran incredibly smoothly and photogenically from start to finish due to their planning – from The Merchant Hotel in Salem where Tara got ready, which provided an incredible backdrop and had gorgeous light for their getting ready pictures. To Oceanview of Nahant, with its new, high-end finishes, making it feel like a slice of Newport along the shores of Nahant. Phenomenal service to boot. And all of the thoughtful touches that helped tie in their subtle Nautical theme, most made by their beautiful mothers.

3. LOVE+MARRIAGE: This day was all about love and happiness and moments filled with laughter, bliss and sunshine. To celebrate the marriage of two incredibly kind, compassionate, warm people. I cannot say enough about these two and their wedding day. Absolute perfection.

I hope you enjoy this peek into their day – drop us a note at the end, we’d love to hear from you!

Much love to Elisabeth & William, and baby Parker! We photographed their Whitney’s Inn in Jackson NH last year (here) as well as their happy little addition’s newborn pictures. 🙂

They snuck out for a few minutes alone to enjoy the sunset and the ocean.

Congratulations Tara & Will. We adore you, your families and your wedding day!

    Erica and Ben,

    These pictures are absolutely breathtaking!! We are on the last day of our honeymoon sitting in our hotel having flashbacks of our amazing day looking at them. Thank you both so much for making our wedding special and capturing these amazing moments that we’ll cherish for the rest of our life. You guys were so fun and easy to work with – we couldn’t be happier to have the Ewings present on our special day.

    Sening our love,
    Tara and Will Charnley

    Erica and Ben, you did it again! You captured all of the magic and love of the day from the anticipation to the smallest detail. I’ve had so much fun today reliving this day and enjoying the moments that Will and Tara shared both alone and with family and friends. These are absolutely amazing and wonderful. We are so fortunate to have had you both as a part of our year’s special events. Thank you for everything. A big hug and love to you both. Nina

  3. […] light and style. The Merchant (our recommendation! We fell in love with it when we photographed Tara & Will’s Oceanview of Nahant wedding—see it here!) & Hotel Salem offer both, so were perfect for this bride & groom. I loved starting the day […]
