Eileen + Chris | martha's vineyard

You wouldn't know it from recent weather trends, but a few weeks ago, Mother Nature dealt us New Englanders some rough weather... torrential sideways rain even.
Being my first trip to the Vineyard, however, I was too excited to let that minor detail deter my excitement. I brought along a few girlfriends and we decided to make a long weekend out of it. You can read about that here and here

Eileen and Chris's wedding was one of those days you want every wedding to be like. It was all about the love and family and just HAPPENED to be in a beautiful, calm, serene location.
Eileen's 9 nieces and 20,000 nephews were all a part of the wedding and the entire day revolved around them and family. Practically perfect in every way.
Rain ushered in the day but held off all through the wedding and reception...It wasn't until we decided to trekk down towards the lighthouse that we were pelted with a snap-of-the-finger-downpour. Luckily I brought along a few umbrellas!
Additionally, I had the joyous Miss Annemarie out from Texas to shoot with me so she added an extra element of fun to the day. Her and Suzanne made the weekend even more amazing! (Remind me to do a post on all these amazing people in my life... they make me who I am and I'm so honored to have each and every one as friends)

Eileen's veil is a family heirloom... it was her mother's grandmother's manteca that evolved into a veil worn by all the women in the family. Being the youngest of six, and last to marry, it was only fitting to continue the tradition. I seriously think this was my favorite bride veil Ive ever seen. so old, antique...stunning and FULL of family history and legacy. :)

All the gentlemen were wearing Vineyard Vines Ties... Apparently it is a huge Martha's Vineyard Tradition. I loved it!

The downpour sprint. I was running backwards as we were Jackie Joyner-ing it to the car and there was water all over my lens creating the crazy blur and flares. so fun though.

Did I mention I had only brought along two umbrellas? haha.

AND... yes, there is even a slideshow! ***CLICK HERE***
