I have been anxiously awaiting the return of Erica and Dave from their honeymoon in Greece and they are BACK:)!! That means it is time to share with the world (and them:), their beautiful wedding at the Sea Crest Hotel in Falmouth!! Their complete day took place on the Sea Crest grounds and it was fabulous!I arrived a little early and was able to catch the end of Erica’s hair and make-up! On the right is one of her brother’s getting touched up too:)
This is Erica with her mom! I was lucky enough to meet her parents before the wedding, so when I arrived on the wedding day, I already felt like a part of their family – I absolutely loved it! They are definitely a warm and welcoming bunch:)!After some time with Erica, I jumped over to Dave’s room…I delivered a card and we had a toast:)!When I returned back to Erica’s room, I had a card to deliver to her too:)!
Then it was time for the dress and accessories….On to the first look we went! It was a warm and sunny day for Memorial Day weekend, and there were actually a lot of beach goers! I was impressed with their readiness for summer – it was warm but not THAT warm:)! We found our own quiet spot and did their first look…Erica and Dave are both happy and easy-going people and their first look depicted that – so sweet and so giddy:)!
We did a few pictures of just the two of them before having their bridal party join us…
This is Erica’s niece – such a cutie and she liked doing high-fives with me:)! It worked fabulously for her:)!These are her grandparents and it is their only grandchild…so far:)! After our pictures, we headed in for the Ketubah signing led by Erica’s brother…and then on to the ceremony!One of Erica’s brother’s and one of Dave’s brothers led the ceremony!
Erica and Dave joined in on cocktail hour and I headed indoors to photograph their details – the room looked great!!The reception began with a fun first dance and then some great speeches – I have to say that I got a bit choked up when Erica’s Dad said his speech…so sweet…As the sun set, we jumped outside for a few pictures…and then the party was in full swing:)!Photo booth fun:)!I LOVE this reaction by Dave when he saw this little one jump right into a split!! She is a great dancer and SO flexible!
Erica and Dave – I wish you two the absolute best and I hope that I get to see you both and your whole families again:)!!
