TEASER: Melissa & Marc's Gloucester, MA wedding

Melissa and Marc were referred to us by one of our other rock star brides, Kat, so we were very excited to meet them, because Kat and Rick are a blast so we knew Melissa and Marc would be, too. We met up in Onset, Massachusetts to do engagement photos on a steamy July evening. I was informed by Pam that the best Pizza on the south coast was in Onset at Marc Anthony's, so this had me acting like a ten year old the night before Christmas. It was a hot day, but since when do Pam and I let a little heat scare us? I found a building that I really wanted to shoot against, when we got over there we saw that it was the Parks bathroom...

Does that look like a Bathroom to you?

They also brought along their adorable son and you will see this crushingly cute face again a little further down and again at their wedding!

Pam happened to notice some really great light coming through the trees so we had to take advantage of that.

After the engagement session and chatting with Melissa and Marc, we knew the wedding was going to be a blast! Fast forward a few weeks and we're hearing wedding bells and it's time for Melissa and Marc's big day. They married at the Brookside Country club which is were we photographed Amy and Ryan's wedding the same time last July. While putting our gear away in the reception hall we noticed that they were having a candy bar!! We've been seeing these a lot this year!

The ceremony was a scorcher, I believe the term the weather man used was apocalyptic blaze of heat? Or that could of just been what I heard ;) Melissa however handled it like a champ, while looking fierce at the same time.

During the reception Pam and I happened to glance out the window and spied this really awesome vintage car. I said to her, "I would love to shoot in that!" Later, as luck would have it when we were out shooting some final portraits as the sun went down a lady came out of the country club and asked if we wanted to use that car... Did the wedding gods answer my call? Yes please! It's proud owner, a very nice gentleman, brought it around for us a few minutes later.
