The groom’s last name is Champagne. For real. If that doesn’t set the stage for this classy, decadent, elegant, beautiful day – I don’t know what will.
I’ve been photographing the Bride’s family for years. Starting with graduation photos through family photos to the privilege of being a part of their 2nd daughter’s proposal and engagement party, to THIS amazing day – honoring and celebrating the marriage of McKenzie and Charlie.
McKenzie chose her three sisters to stand by her side while Charlie chose two mates from his home-town of Boston and his soon-to-be-brother-in-law Adam. Along with their parents and a slew of friends, they donned their best wedding attire (honestly the best-dressed wedding guests I’ve ever seen) to party the night away. The dancefloor was hoppin’ and the evening ended with a starry-skied kiss in front of Greysolon. As well-wishes honked their horns and yelled messages of congratulations from their cars while allowing this lovely couple their photo-op in the middle of the street, I couldn’t help but think how awesome wedding celebrations are. Being in love, surrounded by your closest circle of people – where even strangers pause their day to extend their congratulations. I’m so lucky I get to not only witness these extremely special days but honored to document them for generations to come.
Congratulations McKenzie, Charlie and your entire families!
