Doubleheader Pt. II - At The Mansion by Zack Wussow

For the second time this weekend, rain on a wedding day. But no worries, because the Tarrywile Mansion may have the best "back-up room" I've ever seen.

Actually, the entire place is stunning. Marylou and Kevin put together an amazing day too, starting with the bridal party getting ready in the suites upstairs.

They opted for a first look, but wanted it to be something more than the standard "bride walking up behind the groom". We found a spot where they could talk before seeing each other - Marylou's reaction when she caught just a glimpse of his tie around the corner was amazing.  It only got better when they turned the corner.

The ceremony was beautiful, and the reception was intimate and fun.

Marylou and Kevin braved the cold (as did a few of her devoted bridesmaids) for some posed photos.

And, of course, there was time for lots of dancing. Exciting, energetic dancing.

It was an amazing night. Congratulations Marylou and Kevin!

(I had a busy weekend - this is part 2. You can see the other part here. Or, you can check out Marylou and Kevin's engagement shoot... in Boston!)


A Bittersweet Celebration by Zack Wussow

I can't say Nancy and Jeff's wedding went off without a hitch - suffice it to say it was not a universally happy day. However, thanks to the resilience of the couple and their guests, and some heroic work by their maid of honor (and fill-in best man), it was still an incredible, intimate day.

I don't often get into the details of a couple's backstory, but I'll make an exception here. Nancy and Jeff dated in high school, but went their own ways, had families of their own, and only reconnected recently, decades later, through Facebook.

It's clear that they are deeply in love, and take the "in good times and bad" very seriously.

This is my last wedding of the year, and number 70 in my career (but more on that soon). I'm so glad I got to wrap up my year with this amazing couple.
