Marisa + Andy = Married

One of our favorite things about shooting weddings is watching how each individual couple makes an event their own. In many ways, planning a wedding is the first big project a couple will undertake together. It's not just the brides party, and it's not just the grooms. It is something that represents both of them, and what makes them compliment each other so well. Marisa and Andy had a wedding that truly reflected themselves. From the unique wedding venue on the shore of Jamestown, RI to the beer they lovingly crafted months leading up to the wedding - there wasn't an element that wasn't personalized. They also had a Quaker ceremony, which is especially cool because it consists of the wedding guests contributing readings, poetry, music or on the moment toasts to the couple - instead of having an officiant lead the entire ceremony. All wedding guests sign the couple's marriage certificate, which is such a beautiful way to remember the day that everyone came together to watch them become husband and wife. We also have to give a big shout out to Jamie from Jamie Marland Photography for joining Summer Street for the day with her expert eye behind the lens. (We especially love the shoe shots, Jamie!) Congrats to Marisa and Andy - and thank you for trusting us to capture your wonderful day!
