Rebecca & Benjamin – A Crane Estate Wedding

I’m so excited to share this wedding.  It’s the culmination of a trio of forces working together to create a beautiful wedding: a truly lovely couple, a stunning venue and an absolutely gorgeous New England summer day.  I liked Becca and Bear from the moment I met them.  They’re outlook on their wedding and the importance of their family all made the fit seem so right.  It was a struggle to keep the post to a reasonable length, but we picked a few favorites.  The ceremony and reception were held at the Crane Estate in Ipswich, MA.  It’s absolutely one of my favorite spots and I think you’ll see why if you’re not familiar with it.

The girls have this wonderful suite upstairs in the mansion to get ready:

It was a tad on the hot side!



You might have seen this in my Best of 2014 post – this one’s probably my favorite shot of the day:

My excellent compadre David DiNisco helped me out for the day and started with the guys as they got ready in Gloucester, MA.

We picked a secluded spot in the shade for an opportunity to have the couple see each other for the first time. Becca made quite the vision as she walked through the garden and sun to get to Bear.

As the sun started to set, we slipped out of dinner to grab a few portraits on the Grand Allee:


Bear set off to get some fresh turkey for the reception!

One thing that was really unique about the reception was that it was held outdoors on the patio of the estate.  Such a beautiful spot!

A full moon at the end of the evening was a pretty amazing cap to the day:
