Holly & Mike || Rockport Seaside Wedding (1 of 3)

Oh, a summer wedding by the seaside! What a lovely thought right about now, as I'm contemplating getting out after a snowstorm with 12+ inches in my area... I was so excited about Holly and Mike's wedding after photographing Holly's friends' weddings in prior years (hello, Julie and Jaclyn! I'm so glad you gals have such awesome friends :)). I knew, if she was anything like these amazing ladies, the wedding would be beautiful, have a lot of neat details, full of emotion, and definitely FUN! I wasn't wrong, at all. Plus, I just love Rockport. It is the most picturesque seaside New England town. Because there is just *so much* to share, I've separated this wedding into three parts. Parts 2 and 3 up later this week!

Getting Ready: Rockport Inn and Suites, Rockport, MA

Ceremony: The First Congregational Church of Rockport, Rockport, MA

Holly and Mike decided to do a blind-folded first look kind of thing! It was fun - we got Mike all set and blindfolded, waiting for Holly... She saw him, he didn't see her, but they were able to talk and hold hands - I think it's a great way to calm those jitters before walking down the aisle.
