Album Story

From the Photographers:


Emily and Evan’s natural Wychmere wedding on Cape Cod was simply beautiful. With bright and colorful details, this modern venue was the perfect spot for a coastal spring wedding. Even with a misty forecast, nothing could stop these two from smiling. Although they had planned for an outdoor ceremony, the inclement weather meant tying the knot indoors. Luckily, the Wychmere has an incredible indoor ceremony space. Huge windows brought in tons of natural light and guests could still have ocean views during the vows!


As documentary wedding photographers, there are three things that we can’t get enough of–emotions, natural light and color. This Cape Cod wedding was overflowing with all three, and we were so happy to capture it all! From Emily’s sparkle wedding dress to the stunning spring wedding bouquets by New England Gardens, this wedding felt like a spread from a magazine.  Emily and Evan took over a year to plan their relaxed Cape Cod wedding, making the month before the wedding a lot less stressful!


After getting ready for the day at the Wychmere Beach Club, Emily and Evan had their first look on the dock behind the Wychmere. Wedding party portraits followed, and we loved the unique idea of varying shades of green bridesmaid dresses! We see so many different decor ideas for beachy weddings, and loved all of the handmade colorful details of this wedding! Emily’s mom made the fabric table runners, colorful cloth napkins and wooden table numbers. Her aunt drew the signs and custom bride and groom coloring pages. Every place setting even had a hand drawn “How to eat a lobster” card for guests who were unsure about how a traditional clambake goes down. The “Treat Yo Self” sign (Parks and Rec anyone?) was also a hilarious touch.


After dinner, DJ Scott turned up the music and guests got wild on the dance floor. We even lucked out with Evan doing the “worm”! Emily and Evan snuck away for a few minutes to walk along nearby Merkel beach for some twilight portraits and we were reminded of just how gorgeous Cape Cod weddings can be.


From the bride and groom:


Evan and I met in Washington, D.C  Evan had just moved from Montana and all my friends were in serious relationships and I needed something to do, so we both happened to use online dating to meet new people. Neither of us were super serious about online dating and expected anything out of it, but it worked!

After 4 years of dating, Evan took me on an early morning hike and proposed at the overlook .  When we got back from the hike, I was surprised to find friends from up and down the east coast at our apartment ready to celebrate.


• Advice to future couples planning a wedding on the Cape?

Take your time with planning and stay super organized. We gave ourselves over a year to plan and that made the last month so much less stressful.  Keep in mind that vendors and coordinators are professionals and deal with weddings on a regular basis, you are doing it only once. If they have any suggestions, listen to them they have seen it all and know what works!


• Favorite thing about your wedding day

Seeing so many elements come together, from friends and family from all parts of life to all the crazy ideas my mom and had with the decor. Everything comes to life to make the day unforgettable.  Also, the fact that it stopped raining as soon as we arrived at Wychmere was an added bonus!
