From the first time I spoke with Amy on the phone, I loved her sweet Southern accent and her clear wedding vision. She and her fiancé decided to elope 1300 miles from their Alabama home in Salem. She knew she wanted something intimate, unique, and simple, yet classic, so she turned to Google. (Where else?) She came upon the House of the Seven Gables, a seaside home built in the 1600s. The day before her wedding, she and Jeremy drove for 26 straight hours to reach their historic wedding venue on the North Shore in Massachusetts.
Amy looked gorgeous, with her vintage curls and red satin heels. She wore her grandmother’s ring as her “something old” and “something blue.” Her grandfather’s pin was pinned into the folds of her dress as her “something borrowed.” Jeremy’s fedora, suspenders, and red bow tie completed the classic look.
It was a sunny, cool, 40 degree day, but Amy and Jeremy didn’t seem to notice the cold. She beamed down the garden walkway that served as her aisle and they basked in each other’s warmth. The ceremony was perfect. It was just Amy & Jeremy, the officiant, the coordinator from the house, and me with my cameras. There were also a few uninvited guests – a handful of tourists who clapped and cheered when the bride and groom sealed their marriage with a kiss.
Now that they’re married (!!!), Amy & Jeremy are headed on a week long road trip of the Northeast through Boston, New York, and another destination that’s yet to be determined.
I hope you enjoy a few of my favorite pictures from this beautiful day. And to Amy & Jeremy, thank you for letting me be a part of your special day. I wish you the best of luck in your travels through this coming week and in the journey that is the rest of your lives together.
