Rachel & Ben – A Crane Estate Wedding

I’m super excited to share this wedding!  I think you’re all going to love this post.  Rachel and Ben were married on a lovely October day at one of the most spectacular venues in all of New England, the historic Crane Estate.  You might have seen a little glimpse a few weeks back when this wedding was posted on Style Me Pretty.  Here’s a collection of my favorite images from the day.  We were blessed with some of the most beautiful light of the year and I enjoyed every minute of it!

Their invitations were gorgeous:

The gang got ready at the Garrison Inn in Newburyport:

Love this image:

David DiNisco joined me for the day and started with the guys as they got ready:

The couple saw each other for the first time just outside the Garrison in the lovely park out front:

Seriously?  So darn cute.

The ceremony took place in Manchester, MA.  Here Rachel’s brother and mother get things straightened out before the ceremony began:

The light in the church was divine.  (Sorry for the horrible pun.)


The couple rode to the church in a London Taxi, which left a little room for me!


We hopped out quickly to take a few images in the salt marshes on Argilla Road:


Greeted by the always impressive facade of the Estate:

The bridal party met out back to make use of the elegant lawn:

I was lucky to grab a few minutes with the couple before the cocktail party began:

Love this:

An adorable first dance:
