I had the beautiful honor of photographing a most vibrant wedding this past fall – vibrant in color and in love! The marriage of Heidi and Simon at St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church in Chatham and celebration at Ocean Edge Resort in Brewster, MA.
It wasn’t just a wedding, but the melding of two cultures – two families who have grown to love and respect each other across an incredible distance. Heidi first met Simon while in Uganda with her choir. They’ve made it through more than just a long distance relationship, but one that was dealt the additional obstacle of technology and limited connection. So when I say “honor,” I truly mean it was an honor to be the one to capture the day when they were finally able to be together.
It was a blast walking in the door to see my great friend, Emma Jocelyn of Eden Skin Care & Make-Up – working her magic as always. Heidi and her bridesmaids looked stunning surrounded in shades of purple!
The beach at sunset! This was my first time at Ocean Edge Resort in Brewster, but the location offers a nice variety of places to explore for photos. Sneaking out for 10-15 minutes of that glowing light is easy while the rest of your guests are munching away on dinner.
Erin from Cape Cod Celebrations was on hand to ensure a smooth schedule and perfect details. I found I was always looking up to see her at the most perfect moments!
Heidi and Simon could not have been a sweeter couple to work with, always so thoughtful in their ideas and communications. They reached out with the biggest smiles and hugs when we first met in person on their wedding day. I will definitely hold them close to my heart as they head out into the world and bring ever more people together through those same bright smiles.
Hope you enjoyed this little glimpse into their day!
