For those of you not from the Newburyport, Massachusetts area, let me tell you this: Yankee Homecoming is HUGE! It is a “To-DO” to say the least. When Margaret contacted me about photographing her and Justin’s wedding not only during Yankee Homecoming week, but on THE day, the day of the beautiful fireworks display…well, I would say I was a tad nervous about logistics, to say the least. But then, when I heard she was marrying an Airman, well, I KNEW I would do anything to make sure to give her all the photo – goodness I could. It’s important to me to make sure I “pay it forward” where I can to other military families; Margaret and Justin are a wonderful couple that deserved the perfect day!
After starting off at Margaret’s mother’s house – wait! did I mention her mother is the woman behind The Party Cake? – we then made our way over to Hale Memorial Park for the outdoor ceremony, overlooking the water. It was lovely, with family and friends surrounding the couple. From there we jetted off to Michael’s Harbourside for some dinner and dancing. Not only were we given a show with the fireworks, but the sun setting over the harbor was amazing as well! I think the folks at Michael’s were a bit “star struck” by Justin’s uniform and somehow got us on the private docks for some amazing shots with that gorgeous sky…now *that’s* photo-goodness. All the best to this couple; I hope they’re enjoying their new Florida digs!
