A Nauticus Marina Wedding

I’ve grown up around the area of Nauticus Marina in Osterville my whole life, visiting the docks next door for both breakfast and cocktails as the business names changed over three decades. A few winters back I captured these photos of an empty Crosby Boat Yard, and later visited again with a friend to snap some Polaroids. It’s a truly special place – the boat yard – and it just so happens to be next to a wedding venue!

Katrina and Bryan were the perfect duo for the backdrop! I first met these guys at their home on Boston’s waterfront, where we shared a cocktail and explored nearby streets and rooftops for their engagement photos. I knew they were pretty fun then, but now I REALLY know… their wedding was one of the most dancy, hysterical, smile-filled afternoons I’ve ever had the honor of photographing!

Katrina and Bryan got ready with their friends in the Hyannis area – the guys at a hotel and the gals at a friend’s beautiful summer home.

Katrina and Bryan chose to see each other for the first time on the widow’s walk of the girls’ summer home. As four of us got ready to photograph and film the sweet moment, Bryan simply bounded full-speed up the stairs and ran into the arms of his bride! Utterly adorable!

And soon we were off in the trolley on the way to a beautiful ceremony at Nauticus Marina in Osterville! The bride’s mom officiated the wedding, and the groom’s dad served as best man. These guys just have such wonderful family bonds, and the love was squeezable all around!
