The weather was beautiful on our wedding day, June 13, 2015, so we held our wedding ceremony on the side lawn at our venue, Crissey Farm. The setting was beautiful in front of their arbor that the venue helped us decorate with big white, yellow, and grey poms and lanterns.
The ceremony kicked off with our moms walking down together to take their seats. It was so sweet that they did this together.
Autumn was in the care of her amazing daycare teacher and her daughter for the day and night.
After my sister and my best friend walked down the aisle, my dad and I started to make our way down the aisle to “Falling in Love” by Ingrid Michealson.
Of course, Autumn wanted to join me on the walk down the aisle too. She joined us for the walk so that Price could give her a big hug and kiss before we started the ceremony.
Hugs to my dad when the officiant asked if he would give me away.
We had originally planned on our family friend performing our ceremony as she is an officiant in New Hampshire, but temporarily transferring her officiant duties over to Massachusetts for the day was proving quite difficult. In the end we found an officiant available in the town where we were married, and settled on having Mary perform a reading for us.
Mary beautifully read the poem “The Key To Love” (Author Unknown), which really meant so much to us.
We then said our vows to each other.
We wrote our own vows that were personal to us and our relationship. It felt so great to write them ourselves (even if I did it at the last minute!). It made our commitment to each other every more special as we mentioned special moments over our 10 year relationship in the vows.
After Price recited his vows we almost kissed!! It was just one of those reflexes that we naturally wanted to do after such a special moment. We both leaned in almost kissed but caught ourselves in the nick of time.
And then we exchanged our rings.
Oh, now you may kiss your bride!
We all headed into the venue to kick off cocktail hour with our family and friends.
But first we took some pictures with our wedding party and families.
After our wedding portraits we got to mix and mingle with our wonderful guests during our cocktail hour.
More wonderful pictures taken by Lefebvre Photography to come!
