kim & julien || wedding at hawthorne country club

Kim and Julien's wedding might just have been the last one to be held at the Hawthorne Country Club in Dartmouth - a popular venue for weddings... I believe it was sold, and they're not sure if they're doing weddings and events there in the future. We will see! Their wedding was filled with so many personal details - they wrote their own vows, had a friend officate, and another one play a song during their ceremony... Their centerpieces included books and their table numbers were records. So neat! Their day was full of emotion - mostly a lot of laughing (see below :)), but a few tears as well...

Without further ado...

(I love the purple shoes!)

Julien had his brother/best man bring Kim a special blue box before she started getting ready! Thanks to Heidi, my second shooter, for getting the shot on the right, of the infinity bracelet Julien gave Kim.

My favorite part is Kim's mom on the left, keeping the tears back...

I love this! They didn't even say anything to each other - we were getting them together for a couple "posed" photos, and when Kim's maid of honor stood next to her, they both just started cracking up.

The guys loved their funky socks.

Thanks to Heidi again for capturing these images of Kim and her dad right before the ceremony.

Their cake was made by Kim's cousins - I couldn't believe it! It was a book, and it actually had frosting pages - Kim and Julien's parents each wrote a special message to them on the pages - the image on the right is them reading the messages.

And then thanking their parents...
