kaitlin & dan || wedding at willowdale estate

Oh, I have so many awesome 2012 weddings to blog about! This summer has flown by, I can't believe it. I decided to start with Kaitlin & Dan's beautiful wedding at one of my favorite venues, Willowdale Estate. The day had a hiccup or two (the downpour happening right when we were supposed to be doing formal photos outside? yep!), but the couple took it all in stride, and couldn't be happier just to be with those closest to them, celebrating.

Ceremony: St John the Baptist Church, Peabody, MA

Reception: Willowdale Estate, Topsfield, MA

I love it when I'm able to go back and forth between the bride and groom getting ready!

We had about ten minutes to get all of the formal photos of the bride and groom and wedding party done before the sky opened up (it was rumbling and very dark and grey even when we started) - glad we rushed to get everything in!

The parent dances... The mother/son dance turned into mother/father/son dance!

Cookies! After a long night of dancing, don't your guests deserve an extra little treat? I love this... I also might have stolen one or two.
