Intimate Summer Wedding on Cape Cod

Jenn and Matt met on the Hood College campus when she approached him to be a part of an interview for her first job as a reporter. After the interview, she thought he was super cute and just couldn't let him get away so she asked him for his number. They've been together for 10 years now!


Jenn and Matt, like many others, were forced to decide whether to postpone their wedding or just elope and forgo the big day due to the rona. They chose to legally marry with only their immediate family in August of 2020 at Jenn's family home in Orleans, Massachusetts (Cape Cod) and celebrate their marriage with their friends and family in the same location exactly one year later.


I've been a part of many weddings in my day, but there was something different about this one. I don't know if it was the positive energy and excitement around finally being able to celebrate, the special touches of Cape Cod like the little postcards and the lobster dinner, the fact that it was a very intimate gathering with 40 people at Jenn's family home, or that you could simply feel just how much love Jenn and Matt shared for one another and their friends and family shared for their relationship - my bet's on a little bit of all of it!


Here are some of my favorite moments from the day:


Jenn's best friend since 8th grade, and Maid of Honor, Kendra, did Jenn's makeup for the day. And she was STUH-NING!



Jenn and Matt were joined by their dog, Zola, down by the water for some gorgeous photos. Seriously, could these two be any more good-looking together?!



This is the hydrangea tree that they planted last year as a thank you to Jenn's parents for hosting their wedding and to watch it grow like their love over the years - AWW!!



There were many laughs and tears during these absolutely beautiful toasts.



Their friends and family put together a flash mob. It really set the tone for the epic dance party that ensued later that evening.



And what better way to have a true coastal New England wedding than with a lobster and clam bake for dinner? - I dig the bibs!



And what a more perfect way to end the night than with a packed dance floor...



Followed by a romantic cake cutting.



Congratulations, Jenn and Matt!
