Kevin and Michele had a beauuuutiful fall wedding this November, at Willowdale Estate in Topsfield, MA.
We’ve had a weird weather year – in fact, we’re having weird weather right now – but with colors like these still on November 9th, maybe November is the new October?
I’ve known Kevin and Michele for a few years now, maybe camping in the pouring rain was our first date? These two are always up for adventure, including hiking and camping and even honeymooning in sleeping bags across Patagonia! They’ve found a beautiful historic home in Ipswich to settle in to (near their Crane Beach engagement session!), and have kicked off their life together beautifully. I was so happy and honored to be there to share this day with them!
This adorable barn is on the couple’s own property – a perfect location for their “first look”, seeing each other for a snuggle before the wedding!
A little glimpse of life at this moment: Obama elected for his second term as President, and the packing process for a two-week trek in South America! (totally jealous)
Michele’s girlfriends helped with creating the bouquets and boutonnieres, and were even still knitting shawls on the morning of the wedding!A chilly outdoor ceremony indeed, but everyone was smiling as they exchanged vows and Michele’s brother sang a song.
Willowdale is a beautiful estate property on Bradley Palmer State Park in Topsfield. There are so many nooks and pathways to walk along, making for great photos in the November air. Of course Michele and Kevin brought it many of their own special touches to the interior. For as long as I’ve known her, Michele is incredible at always sending handmade cards in the mail. I love that they named each table after species of trees!
Congratulations on an truly amazing day, my friends! I’m so excited to follow along on your great big adventure of life together!
