Sam & Nick's Love-Filled Wedding | Stanley Park May 2018

While Nick and the guys were hanging out at home, Sam and the ladies spent the morning getting their hair and makeup done by the ladies from Carve Beauty Bar at a nearby hotel. As everyone was getting ready, we kept peeking out the window hoping the rain would let up by the time we got Stanley Park for their first look. No luck! A steady light rain continued throughout the afternoon, dashing our hopes of photographing their First Look in the gardens.

Sam & Nick didn't seem to be phased by the rain at all. Luckily, the Beveridge Pavilion at Stanley Park has a perfect rain location right next door to the ceremony site. Their first look was really sweet, and you can hardly tell it was even raining at all!

After the ceremony, the party moved over to Union Station in Northampton for the reception. Sam & Nick and their wedding party were introduced into cocktail hour. (This was the first time we've seen this at a wedding, but going forward, we highly recommend it to any couple who wants to enjoy cocktail hour with their guests!!) Sam's Uncle Mike was the wedding planner and really put together a beautiful day. We especially loved all of the different centerpieces on the tables at the reception. Each table was unique and had its own arrangement of vintage books, Edison records, candles, and flowers.

After toasts and dinner, everyone danced the night away and everything was absolutely perfect. Congratulations Sam & Nick!
