From the Bride & Groom:

  • What inspired you to have a Cape Cod Wedding?

    Emily grew up spending summers at the Cape with her family where her parents now live and Chris also grew up going to the Cape for vacations.

  • What was your wedding date?

    9.30.17

  • What was your favorite thing about your reception Venue? What are some of the best memories of your wedding day?

    Our favorite thing about the venue was the location. It was across from the beach but also had a ballroom feel and an outside deck. Hotels along the venue made it easy for guests to walk over and walk back. Some of the best memories were the trolley rides before and after, see each other for the first time, our family happy and supporting us and everyone on the dance floor the whole time!

  • What were some special touches / details for your wedding day?

    We made our own ceremony cards and welcome boxes for the church. Emily attached her great great grandmothers hankerchief to her bouquet, which was used by the past generations at their weddings, napkins, matches, hand made table cards, memory tree, guest book which was made on Etsy which was a map of the Cape and a heart where we got married, florals down by Seagrass florals, homemade cookies as favors from Emily’s Aunt who traveled from PA and is a family tradition.

  • What were your wedding colors for bridesmaids dresses and flowers. Any special wedding party gifts / favors?
    Sage green dresses with white flowers and green accents. The girls got robes with their names on them and matching Kate Spade earrings to Emily and the guys got Sperry gold up wing tips and fun nautical Jcrew socks.

Marta + Tom’s Popponesset Inn Wedding | Shoreshotz Cape Cod Wedding Photographer

Marta and Tom had an amazing wedding celebration at the beautiful seaside Popponesset Inn on Cape Cod.  They were married on September 16, 2017, a date that everyone was long looking forward to….especially us!  Jannelle and I travelled to Nantucket the previous June to photograph Marta and Tom’s engagement session, and we became fast friends! They showed us all around the island and we even got to meet and have dinner with Marta’s family who live on Nantucket. You can view their Nantucket engagement session here: Marta+Tom Engaged .

Their Cape Cod wedding day was absolutely perfect! Every beautiful detail! Marta’s Mom Christine is a beekeeper, she made all of the guests jars of honey from her Nantucket home. Marta’s gorgeous bridesmaids all wore different shades of greens and teals…perfect shades of the sea. Tom and the groomsmen all looked so handsome in their tuxedos. Judy from All About Flowers for Weddings designed the most beautiful florals.  Beautiful wedding invitations and stationery by Jennifer Chagnon of The Pink Polka Dot.  It was a gorgeous sunny day, then after the ceremony, magical and romantic fog rolled in on the beach.  Guests danced the night away with the awesome Wilson Stevens Band Boss!

Marta & Tom, Christine & Bruce and Tom & Margaret, it was so very nice getting to know all of you and celebrating with you!
I can’t wait to see you all again in the future!  xoxoxo

From the Bride & Groom –

  •  What inspired you to have a Cape Cod Wedding?

    I was born and raised on the Cape, and I couldn’t have imagined myself anywhere else on my wedding day. Ever since I was a little girl I envisioned a ceremony by the ocean and my toes in the sand and on August 25th every dream I had came to life. Having a ceremony outside and preferably by the water was very important to us. We knew we wanted to have a cape/nautical vibe that emulated us as a couple. Wychmere was all of that and more.

  • What was your wedding date?

    August 25, 2017

  • What was your favorite thing about your reception Venue? What are some of the best memories of your wedding day?
    We absolutely loved getting married on the Hydrangea lawn at Wychmere Beach Club. As beautiful sailboats passed by and several seals frolicked in the harbor, we were blessed enough to say our vows with this gorgeous backdrop behind us. We could not have asked for better weather… with the sun shining and a slight salty breeze in the air- we devoured delicious Hors d’oeuvres, sipped on fun cocktails and soaked in all the love from our amazing family and friends outside on the terrace for our cocktail hour. Our reception was in the gorgeous Harbor room. We loved the floor to celling windows- we felt as though we were in the middle of the harbor surrounded by boats and the ocean. I was moved to tears seeing our absolutely incredible wedding cake, our jaw dropping flower arrangements, our personalized menu cards and lovely cake truffle favors. Every single vision I had came to life but better than I could have ever imagined. We had the best time running through the sand for our sunset pictures with the BEST photographer who made us feel comfortable, beautiful and special the ENTIRE day :-). Cutting our gorgeous wedding cake was truly special. As we cut a slice, we tried to take in all the delicately piped words depicting our relationship and memories of the 8 years that brought us to this day. We had an absolute blast dancing the night away with the most interactive, talented and fun band! It is so hard to just pick a few favorite memories because the whole day was nothing short of perfect.
  • What were some special touches / details for your wedding day?
    Small personal details were something that was important to my mom and I as we carefully planned out my wedding day. Jen from Pink Polka Dot was amazing in helping to create our personalized save the date and wedding invitations . She helped to create our lobster love logo that was placed on our personalized cocktail napkins, escort cards, menu cards and guest book sign. We loved our lobster lollipop escort cards that were displayed in tin boats that my mom crafted with our wedding date and initials. My mom hand painted frames and placed pictures from our grandparents wedding day and our parents wedding day and had them on display- truly special to see so many years of love! We had so much fun sipping through our striped straws with personalized pennants. Our wedding cake was very special and depicted special memories Ben and I created during our relationship thus far. We loved our favors- our delicious cake truffles placed at each setting with love.
  • What were your wedding colors for bridesmaids dresses and flowers. Any special wedding party gifts / favors?
    Each bridesmaid chose a different color coral/peach/pink. It came out beautifully! My flowers were to die for. Coral, peach, pink, orange beautiful brights with lovely greens tucked throughout. I loved every second of the morning of getting ready with my best gals. They all looked beautiful in their monogramed anchor robes I got them while sipping mimosas in their personalized flute. I also gave them navy clutches with Kate Spade knot earrings inside. Groomsmen received coral anchor ties, stripped crab socks, Cole Haan shoes and belts.

Willowbend Cape Cod | Summer Wedding | Samantha + Peter Are Married

I am so excited to share one of the best days of this summer!!! Samantha and Peter were married at the beautiful Willowbend County Club on June 23, 2017.  Samantha was a stunning bride in her Martina Liana gown – wait till you see Pete’s face when he saw her!
Their wedding was loaded with gorgeous details and florals and a seriously good looking wedding party!!!
Enjoy some of my favorite photos and read more about Samantha and Peter’s perfect Cape Cod wedding at the end of the page.

From the newlyweds:

  • What inspired you to have a Cape Cod wedding?

    Our heart is on the Cape, and always has been. We were both born and raised here. This is where we belong and always want to be. When it came down to choosing where we would be married, there wasn’t any question, it’d be on Cape Cod surrounded by our dearest friends and family, most who reside here as well. We looked at several venues up and down the cape, always thought we’d be married toes in sand.. but as soon as we visited Willowbend we fell in love. I mean, how could you not? It was meant to be.

  • What was your favorite thing about your reception Venue? What are some of the best memories of your wedding day?

    How do you choose one thing? Our venue was absolutely stunning. Between the flowers and decor throughout, all of our personalized touches which made it that much more special, the PEOPLE who filled the room with so much love and joy, the brightness, music, and packed dance floor all night, the list goes on. Willowbend stands out in so many ways. We loved having the blank canvas of the ballroom. It was beautiful even without decor, so bright and airy, such a large space to fit our 200 guests. We could do anything with the room, so adding our personal decor, color, flowers, etc, made it truly come to life.. it was MAGIC. Their outdoor space on the golf course is so peaceful and romantic. The perfect setting for a perfect day. 

    Grooms favorite memories: so many things. Getting ready with the guys, reading the letter from my bride, and driving to the venue with my father. Seeing the venue before Samantha arrived and cheers-ing with my brother/best man. Having my father officiate the ceremony was extremely special to both of us. Seeing all the girls walk down the aisle, and to top it off Samantha as she walked down the stairs to one of our favorite songs. Getting to marry my best friend. Joining the sand from
    the beach I grew up on with the one she grew up on into one. Wipping the golf cart. The feeling of Samantha’s gown. Listening to the best man and MOH speeches. Just seeing how happy all of our guests were and how much fun they were having. 

    Brides favorite memories: Getting ready with my favorite ladies. Standing in the golf shop waiting for ceremony to begin and peeking out the window with my MOH at all of our guests being seated. The moment I was at the top of the stairs and made eye contact with Pete for the first time and seeing how handsome he looked. Dancing down the aisle after we were married to Sign, Sealed, Delivered. Coming up to cocktail hour from taking photos to all of our guests cheering for us still gives me chills. Seeing the decorated venue for the first time brought tears to my eyes. Listening to such heartfelt speeches, and how my father said some words I wasn’t expecting. Walking back into the ballroom from taking photos and realizing all of these people are here for US. The dancing.. and how all the Gilrein’s started the dance party before dinner with Scenes from an Italian restaurant! Taking in every little moment with the love of the life. It was all one big memory.

  • What were some special touches / details for your wedding day?

    We went for a rustic chic look for our wedding. Pete is a merchant mariner so we wanted to add nautical without being too cookie cutter. We did some decor with nautical rope and twine. Guests were greeted by a handmade wooden sign by Modern vintage Design that says, “It was always you” which was the perfect saying for already sharing 10 years together. Whiskey barrels marked the aisle with white hydrangeas in cylindrical bases.A chalkboard sign welcoming guests to our wedding. Lots of flowers, eucalyptus,, candles, votives. Rustic wooden shutters were used for seating arrangements. Each guest table was named after something that shaped our relationship, examples being, Wells Beach, ME where we were engaged, Nauset Outer, Porch nights, St. Thomas, Woodview Drive, our first house together, to name a few. A long farm table as the head table was absolute perfection, and named the Park and Ride which is where we met in high school. Our signature cocktail was a twist on a Bellini, we called it the “Gil-rini.” Instead of a guest book we had Modern Vintage Design make a beautiful wooden sign with our last name and est. 2017, that everyone signed.

     

  • What were your wedding colors for bridesmaids dresses and flowers. Any special wedding party gifts / favors?

    Bridesmaids wore Sorella Vita gowns in “vintage rose.” Wedding colors were cobalt blue (men), blush, pale pinks, whites and ivories. Flowers were white hydrangeas, different shades of pale pink roses, blush and white peonies, white ranunculus, and eucalyptus.

    We went all out with wedding party gifts!! Bridesmaids, flower girls, and moms, all got beautiful robes from Plum Pretty Sugar. Flower girls also got personalized totes with their names on them. Littlest got a few activity books in hers. Oldest got a embroidered handkerchief from us that she will use as her “something old” on her wedding day someday. Bridesmaids and moms each got a Kate Spade purse, MOH got a matching wallet with hers. Our parents each got a bottle of wine with a personalized label with a message from us on it. All groommen got cooler bags and engraved leather wallets with their last names on them. Dads got the same plus a engraved pocket knife or watch. Best man also got an engraved pocket knife. Junior groomsmen got a watch! Ring bearer got an engraved hockey puck and tee-shirt, “I dig being the ring bearer” with a front end loader on it, and sunglasses.
