From the very first contact we had with Jim and Lindsey about photography for their outdoor wedding, they were a blast to work with! David shot this wedding alone since Rhiannon is still recovering from her c-section, though she almost tried to come along anyway… We do love to work together 🙂
Jim and Lindsey planned a really special day and we are so grateful they allowed us to be a part of it. From getting ready at the Beechwood hotel, followed by a beautiful and meaningful ceremony on Worcester’s City Hall Common, their fun photos with the “turtle boy”, and a historic first-ever wedding reception at the Worcester Public library, the day was full of their personality.
Getting ready always takes a bit of doing, and in this case a bellhop cart came in quite handy for getting up and into the dress!
Jim and Lindsey picked out favorite books for the bridesmaids to carry down the aisle. Keep your eyes open for peacock feathers, too, which hold special significance to the two of them.
It was really hot in the hotel room, so it didn’t take long before the door was propped open with a nearby rain boot.
We grabbed a couple of quick bridal portraits, and then I was off to the ceremony site.
The ceremony itself was beautiful. The rain even stopped just in time for guests to gather and held off just long enough for the last of the wedding party to make it inside for the reception!
Despite many last-minute challenges like having to find a new wedding cake the morning of, learning that the antique car they had booked to bring them to the ceremony wouldn’t come due to weather, and of course, the weather itself, Jim and Lindsey managed to keep level heads and have a great time!
This was not only a fun day for all, but an historic one as well – this was the first reception held at the Worcester Public Library, and it was featured in the T&G and on WorcesterMag. Jim and Lindsey thought through everything, from a dictionary guest book, to book pages as place settings, lanterns and tea lights for ambiance, and more. And man, do those two know how to have a party!
Well done, Jim and Lindsey, on a beautiful event and best wishes for the years to come!
