Chrissa & Daniel

I'm shockingly tardy in posting this, so without further ado...

Perhaps you'll recall Chrissa and Daniel from this post. They were married on May 5th at the Codman House in Lincoln, MA, which is a fantastic venue! Their caterer was amazing, and the Codman House's coordinator, Nancy, was friendly and helpful.

And of course, the day was gorgeous--sunny and clear.

Chrissa had some very normal wedding-day last-minute things pop up, so she was running a bit late. She arrived and told me she was feeling kind of stressed...but I tell you no lie--no one would have ever guessed it! She looked calm, peaceful, and so lovely. I adore that flower in her hair.



I overheard one of her guests telling her later in the day, "someone told me this on my wedding day, and I wish I'd thought to tell you--something WILL go wrong, but it WILL be ok. and you WILL still get married." And now I pass this sage bit of advice along to all of you--expect the unexpected, keep your "eyes on the prize"--getting married!, and all the little stuff will stay in perspective.


I like the expectation in her body language...she's waiting to go out and join her groom at the altar.


The groom's mother looks on as Daniel and Chrissa share a laugh at the altar.









the groomsmen were kind of rockstars...

I was so excited about Chrissa and Daniel's wedding because they said they might have CROQUET. They didn't disappoint. Then she cracked me up with her satire on being a bridezilla...she decided she was going to claim "bride's right" and requested the red croquet ball for photos. Gotta love a bride whose wedding day demands only went so far as to specify her desired color for lawn game accoutrements.




Even the rockstar guys got in on the fun.
(No groomsmen were injured in the taking of this photograph.)



I just LOVE how everyone is kind of doing their own thing. Chrissa and Daniel's friends and family knew how to have a good time. They were lots of fun to photograph.








The new husband and wife did get to steal a few quiet moments alone during the day.

And last but not least, my favorite image from the day:

Chrissa and Daniel--Thanks for being so much fun and having such great friends. I had a blast.
