I've been out to Cape Cod for weddings before, but I've never been all out to the very tip - Provincetown. So I was very excited when Ryan and Grant asked me to come out for their waterfront wedding - and even more excited when it worked out that my wife and I could make a trip out of it.
The wedding day began with a beach ceremony at Far Land on the Beach - it was a perfect day for it. My favorite bit - they had a sand ceremony unlike any others I've see, from a company called Unity in Glass. The ceremony is pretty similar to any other, but the sand is then sent to be mixed into a glass vase or sculpture by an experienced glass blower. Check out the site - the end results are beautiful.
The whole ceremony was really touching with hardly a dry eye.
We did posed photos with their guests and of the couple with the ocean providing an excellent backdrop.
The celebration moved up to the snack shack, where there was catered food, tables, and some sweaters and blankets to cut the rising wind.
After dinner, it was time to cut the cake.
Since the sun was sliding beautifully to the horizon, I pulled Ryan and Grant away from the food for a few minutes to do some more photos.
When we got back, their guests had gotten the bonfire going, and one of the kids had made some commemorative sand art.
A really beautiful event and a beautiful day.
As an aside, Provincetown was a ton of fun - beautiful, fun, amazing food, lots to do. So if anyone else is getting married up that way, drop me a line. I'd like the excuse to visit again!
