• Classic New England Wedding: Becky & Paul

    Classic New England Wedding | Katie Slater Photography

    I love a good classic wedding. One that is timeless, that you can look back on for years to come and it would still be beautiful. Today’s wedding is one of those – with a pretty grey and pink color palette, a stunning cathedral venue (gosh, it makes for some pretty pictures!), and elegant details. And how fabulous are those shoes!? Check out these lovely images from Katie Slater, along with some words from the bride.

    I’m a graphic designer, so I took on the challenge of designing our invitations, all of our paper products (programs, table cards, table numbers, etc), and website. Paul is a software engineer, so he created the RSVP capability on the website. That way, we didn’t need people to send in response cards. They could RSVP right through our website!

    Favorite moment of the day? My favorite moment was walking down the aisle. Arm in arm with my dad, seeing Paul waiting for me there at the altar, all the stress melted away and was replaced with pure happiness.

    Advice for couples planning now? Don’t forget what the day is truly about. It’s easy to get wrapped up in linen colors and everyone else’s opinions, but at the end of the day it’s about the love between you and your soulmate. It will go by so fast, and all those little details you stressed about won’t even matter!

    Paul and I were inspired by the historical backdrop of Salem. We wanted things to look vintage and classic – almost like an old faded photograph.

    What made your wedding YOU?

    I’d love to say that it was all the decor, dress, all the planning that went into it, but in truth it was the presence of all the people who care about us. Strip away all the decoration and pretty things, and I still would have felt nothing but love that day. My friends,family, and of course my husband, made our wedding day the best day of my life to date.

    Such a lovely wedding isn’t it? I especially love the florals and all of paper goods, which the bride designed herself. Oh, and air guitar is always a plus at a wedding! Congrats to Becky & Paul.

    •  When your shades and your shirt are meant to be  #charlesdashiell  On weekends, we nurse, cuddle, and nap together and it is my favorite. With the other boys I was always trying to get stuff done while they were napping. Since this is my last baby, I'm trying to really soak up all the moments I can -- one day I'll have plenty of time to get stuff done. For now I'll just be a hot mess that made the most of this baby time. Whenever I get a bit anxious about not getting things done, I re-read my favorite poem about motherhood: Mother, oh mother, come shake out your cloth! Empty the dustpan, poison the moth, Hang out the washing and butter the bread, Sew on a button and make up a bed. Where is the mother whose house is so shocking? She's up in the nursery, blissfully rocking! Oh, I've grown as shiftless as Little Boy Blue (Lullaby, rockaby, lullaby, loo). Dishes are waiting and bills are past due (Pat-a-cake, darling, and peek, peekaboo). The shopping's not done and there's nothing for stew And out in the yard there's a hullabaloo But I'm playing Kanga and this is my Roo. Look! Aren't her eyes the most wonderful hue? (Lullaby, rockaby, lullaby loo.) Oh, cleaning and scrubbing will wait till tomorrow, But children grow up, as I've learned to my sorrow. So quiet down, cobwebs. Dust, go to sleep. I'm rocking my baby. Babies don't keep. Song for a Fifth Child By Ruth Hulburt Hamilton #battlefieldmotherhood #mommaandquincyselfies
