As the 2014 wedding season nears an end, I’m so excited to start kicking the blog into gear and share more fantastic moments from this year! This wedding is the perfect way to begin. Laura and Daniel’s wedding was almost 100% smiles and I think you’ll see that in the images. The ceremony and reception were both held at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA. I began my day with the girls and caught a few moments as they got ready:

We decided the Japanese Garden at the PEM would be the perfect place for the first look. I dare you not to smile when you look at these two!
We took a few minutes to get some portraits out of the way before the families arrived for formals. It was such a blast to see Laura and Daniel together and their excitement was contagious.
Practicing a little of the first dance:
The ceremony was held in the East India Marine Hall:
I just love the way the windows frame the ceremony:
An epic first kiss!
