Felix and Alexandra planned a beautiful wedding at the historic Lyman Estate in Waltham, MA. We were fortunate to be available for this wedding date because we didn't receive their inquiry until about 4 weeks out! The Lyman Estate is one of our favorite estate wedding venues in Massachusetts so we were pretty thrilled that we had that one opening available in June.
Felix and Alexandra are both accomplished scholars and chose to have a bit more informal style reception without assigned seating, allowing their guests more opportunities to engage in the party and explore the venue. Capers Catering creating an amazing display for three distinct dinner buffet satins, each representing a part of the couples' lives. A German food station represented Felix's homeland, a California station represented Alex's roots and finally a New England station represents the life they have recently built together.
This wedding was very tastefully put together, but also allowed for a casual and comfortable atmosphere for family and friends to enjoy themselves... It was exactly what the bride and groom envisioned and we were happy to be a part of it. Please check out some of our favorites from their wedding day.
Waltham, MA - Nicole and Devrin planned a beautiful wedding at the historic Lyman Estate in early September of 2012. The bride created some beautiful DIY details including the invitations, all the paper goods, the mirror table seating chart and all the ribbon work. It was all really well done. And as it turns out, Nicole is starting her own business designing paper goods. So awesome.
We briefly introduced this September wedding from the Lyman Estate last year, right after the big day. However we were not able to do it justice at the time, and thought we'd have a full post ready before now... You may have noticed that we've been a bit behind on the blogging, but we're working on it.
It was a windy but humid, late Summer day in New England. As we walked onto the lawn we saw the ribbons, all tied to the big tree in the back, blowing in the breeze. That's when we met Karla Cassidy, who was working on the flowers and decorations. It was about 8 hours of awesome after that point. The getting ready for both the bride and groom took place on-site, upstairs in those light filled rooms. The first look was a big success and Nicole and Devrin even selected one as their Favorite Image. The weather held off until after the ceremony, except for when the wind blew the bride's veil off... we'll get to that in another post.
The reception was inside the Lyman Estate, not in the tent. Everyone was dancing on this night, DJ Sheldon from C-Zone Music knocked it out of the park. Nicole and Devrin had a fantastic wedding; it was incredible decorated, especially the DIY details. We are happy to show you all some of our favorite images below.
A Sneak Peek from this Wedding at the Trinitarian Congregational Church and a Lyman Estate Reception
Heather and Kyle were just married this past weekend on probably the most gorgeous day this year so far. They chose this very beautiful church in Concord, MA and for their reception, one of our most favorite venues, The Lyman Estate. Heather had found us after we photographed her cousin's wedding a couple of years ago, so we've been anticipating this wedding for awhile.
As a little peek into their day we have selected some of our favorite photos below.
