I arrived at the couple’s house in the early afternoon to find Heidi already in her dress, all ready to go! Her and Jimmy were both getting ready at their house as they wanted to keep their day casual and fun for themselves as well as their guests. We did do a first look before leaving the house for the wedding, but Jimmy got so excited to see his bride that he sprinted from the backyard, up the stairs, and into Heidi’s arms before she emerged from their house! That really set the tone for the day, as you can see in each and every picture how in love and how much fun these two have together.
We got the majority of the photographs done before the Ceremony started, which was great because we had almost a full hour to wander around the Codman Estate’s gorgeous grounds as well as the farm next to it. We followed that up with pictures of the bridal party before heading over to the ceremony site which is set up under a ton of tree cover which helped keep the temperature down in the hot sun. They even had bug spray that matched their wedding colors set up for their guests to use throughout the night. There isn’t too much to say about the ceremony that isn’t in the photographs, but they did pack a box with wine and love letters among other things, for a romantic night down road where they could sit and remember their wedding day and how they felt about each other on their wedding day.
