Alaina & Josh || Plimoth Plantation Wedding (1 of 2)

What a busy and wonderful wedding season it's been! It's been a little while since I've blogged a full wedding post, and I couldn't think of a better way to start than with Alaina and Josh's picture-perfect, love-filled wedding at Plimoth Plantation. We started with some getting ready photos (of both the guys and girls) at the Hilton Garden Inn, then went to the Hornblower Gardens at Plimoth Plantation for the first look before the ceremony. Everything was just so perfect!

Ceremony: Hornblower Gardens, Plimoth Plantation, Plymouth, MA

Reception: Outdoor tent at Plimoth Plantation

The italicized excerpts below are from the bride herself, Alaina.

How did the day start? Well I had 4 hours of sleep so I was running on pure excitement. My bridesmaids and I had coffee and muffins (later turning into mimosas and lunch) in the bridal suit that morning while beginning hair and makeup. Josh had lunch with his groomsmen and went back to his best mans room to get ready.

What a gorgeous wedding party! And I love how they had two shades of pink.

How did you feel during the ceremony? I was surprisingly okay during the ceremony. It was before it when I heard Canon in D and watching my bridesmaids walk down the garden steps that I got emotional. My dad was crying too which didn't help my tears. During the ceremony I was just giddy and so happy.

Our goal of the wedding was to have everyone feel our love and feel loved in return. We wanted everyone to enjoy themselves and just have a great celebration. I made sure our guests knew how much we appreciated them through the program thank you's and little tokens throughout the wedding. I wanted the wedding to be as personal as possible. The ceremony was the most important part for us because it was there we said our I Dos. Where we became one. It was so perfect.
