Outdoor Ceremony and Tented Reception | New England Wedding

August 9, 2011

Melissa and Julie had the perfect day for their summer wedding in Marion, MA. Both the outdoor ceremony and tented reception were held on the grounds of Melissa’s parents New England home. When we asked the brides to describe the look and feel of their wedding they said they wanted the ocean-side celebration to be both intimate and inviting for the guests.

The ceremony was located in one of the beautiful gardens surrounded by stone wall and trellis.The natural beauty of the area provided the perfect backdrop for the vows followed by a few formal photos with the wedding party.

For cocktail hour, guests relaxed outside atop the hill overlooking the tent and water. We used this time for a few more photos of the newlyweds down on the dock and private beach.
