It’s the wedding we all have been waiting for!! No really, it is! Alyssa and Craig’s original wedding date was April 4, 2020. Just two weeks before their wedding day the country shut down and all events were cancelled. I remember listening to the news and thinking “oh no… I have a wedding!!! I am supposed to talk to the bride and groom about their timeline in a few days!!” Right away I received an email from Alyssa and we chatted on the phone shortly after. Was this really happening? HOW could this be happening right now? There were so many questions and devastation that the event that they had been planning for now needed to be moved.
The new date was June 25, 2020. Praying that things were changing and events in MA were allowed again this is what we were all planning on…. then things did not change… and new rules were being put in place…. so they changed the date.
THIRD TIMES A CHARM! Alyssa and Craig were married on a PERFECT September day! September 19, 2020 is their final date! While the rules were all still different than a year ago, they are married and it was such a happy day! The River Club did a wonderful job making sure everyone there was safe! They all wore masks and shields while working near the guests outside as well as inside preparing meals. Guests were also wearing masks while walking around the venue. It was so nice to see everyone having fun and being mindful of what is going on in the world. Alyssa and Craig provided hand sanitizer and masks made by the mother of the bride as their wedding favors which if you know me, you know I love practical favors and this one is on the list of favors I loved!
Alyssa and Craig, I know this was not the original plans you had in mind when you got engaged, but I have to say, you both were so amazing changing plans left and right and keeping me in the loop about it all. I can not imagine planning for “3” weddings and the stress that you guys had during this time. You are rockstars! Thank you so much for choosing me to be your photographer. I loved getting to know you and Stonewall at your engagement session and I am so thankful for all the communication the last 6 months. Thank you for trusting me to capture your wedding day. Danielle and I had the best time and it was so nice to meet your friends and family! Wishing you HEALTH and Happiness always! Here are some of my favorites from your wedding day! Have fun reliving this day. It really was perfect. xoxo.
