Wow, it’s taken me a long time to get back to Chrissy + Jason’s wedding … but I hope very much that you’ll agree it was worth the wait. 🙂 Turner Hill is an incredibly beautiful venue for a wedding, and the ceremony spot, on a bank overlooking ponds and trees, with the most gorgeous back light, felt like it had been designed by a photographer. I was in heaven! As the groomsmen marched in behind officiant Rick Perry of Gloucester Weddings, I overheard someone say, “they look like Reservoir Dogs”; I couldn’t agree more!
I love this moment between Jason and his almost-mother-in-law:
I have to admit, when Chrissy was describing the “muted color palette” with brown dresses, I wasn’t 100% convinced; seeing it all come together was eye-opening for me. I clearly have no vision. 😉
The ceremony was super short, but packed full of sweet glances and giggles and big, big smiles.
Those first few moments after the ceremony are some of my favorite of the wedding day:
After some crazy big family group photos, everyone moved over to the front terrace at Turner Hill for some relaxed cocktails. This reminds me of my own wedding location, an old country house in the English countryside … *sigh*
The decor in the reception tent was simple but very pretty:
Dinner opened with toasts:
Immediately after dinner, everyone moved to the fourth location of the day: the main house. This is where the party started and remained, and what a great spot for it! The first dance was followed by the parent dances … so many cute moments. 🙂
The rest of the evening was spent dancing to band Shine (awesome!) and drinking. 🙂 Chrissy and Jason, thank you so much for welcoming me so warmly into your amazing group of friends and family. I was sad to leave the reception, and hope that you’ve all enjoyed these few teasers … there’s so much more good stuff to come in the full set of photos!
