Coral and Navy Wedding from Summer Street Photography

To me, there is nothing prettier than a bright, beautiful pop of coral! And if you agree with me, then you are in for a real treat today! The bride’s shoes? They’re the prettiest! Ruffle-y and coral and I love the bright spot of color beneath her simple sheath wedding dress. The bridesmaids dresses match the colors of her shoes, offset by pretty, yellow and green, lush bouquets. Ranunculus boutonnieres, navy, and gold owl (the bride’s favorite animal) accents. This wedding, captured by Summer Street Photography, is full of color, fun, and laughter. You’re gonna love it!

Jenn and Keith’s love story is a long and serendipitous tale! For years, Jenn’s mom, Linda, had been telling her she should go out with Keith. But timing is everything…

It started in 2004, when they first met at Keith’s friend – also Jenn’s cousin – Scott’s 30th birthday party. Linda sat in between them at the Hilltop Steakhouse outside of Boston, and after the party turned to Jenn and said, “Keith’s cute, and he seemed to like you. Maybe you should go out with him.” Note that she was completely disregarding the fact that she was already seeing someone at the time.

In 2006, their paths crossed again, this time at a baby shower for Scott’s little girl. Upon leaving the party, Linda turned to Jenn and said, “Isn’t Keith cute? And I think he’s single. Maybe you should go out with him.” Note that she was once again disregarding the fact that she already had a boyfriend. Clearly, she did not approve of her daughters’ love interests, or maybe she just had a feeling…

In 2009, when said boyfriend was out of the picture, Jenn’s mom immediately jumped on the suggestion of her dating Keith. Jenn went as far as emailing a picture of Keith to a couple of close girlfriends (all of whom told her to go for it), but the timing just wasn’t right. She wasn’t ready. And soon after that got back together with her boyfriend.

In May of 2010, her boyfriend planned a trip to his hometown in July., but Jenn had a strange, gut feeling that she wouldn’t end up going. In July, her uncle relapsed with cancer. She went to the hospital to see him on Monday and realized then that she probably wouldn’t be going after all. They still tried to figure out a way for her to go, but made it clear that if he passed away on Wednesday, she wouldn’t be going anywhere. 5am Wednesday morning, Jenn’s mom called to tell her he had passed. Her boyfriend still flew out to see his parents, and Jenn stayed behind for the funeral.

Somewhere deep down, she knew she’d see Keith at the wake, because he’d be there to support her cousin, his friend. Sure enough, standing there, talking with family, Jenn’s mom leaned over and said, “Ohh, there’s Keith, Scott’s buddy, by the door.” She was at it again! And for the first time, Jenn got bone-shaking chills.

He came over to talk to her, and she was hooked. This time the timing was right, the attraction immediate, and, as Jenn’s mom would say, “the stars all aligned.” Jenn ended things with her then boyfriend shortly thereafter, and she and Keith have been together ever since. Her mom hasn’t stopped saying how she always knew it was meant to be.

Jenn and Keith talked about marriage almost from the beginning, and he popped the question about 10 months after they started dating. Truth be told, they had already set their wedding date before she even had the ring on her finger!

It might sound strange, but ever since she was a little girl, Jenn always wanted to get married on October 6th (10.06). It’s not her birthday, it’s not a significant date in her life at all, it was just a feeling she’s had for as long as she can remember. It was everywhere around her. Every time she looked at a clock, even if the clock was wrong, it said 10:06. She saw it so often she was convinced it was haunting her. And then one day it occurred to her that maybe the whole 10:06 thing had some sort of significance, and perhaps it wasn’t a time, but a date. She loves October and autumn in New England, so she decided then that it was a happy thing, and that maybe, someday she should get married on 10.06. Flash forward several years – to the year before she started dating Keith, she and her mom made their annual visit to their favorite psychic, who said the most bizarre thing to her. She told her to pay attention to the clock, that there was a specific time that would play a significant role in her life, and that she should look for it. Jenn immediately thought, “I already do that! It’s 10:06.”

Keith, being the easygoing guy that he is, went along with it without hesitation because he knew it would make her happy. And lucky for them, 10.06 conveniently fell on a Saturday in 2012. Serendipity? Just maybe.

{From the Bride} From the beginning, we wanted our wedding to be personal and intimate, just a great party with our nearest and dearest. We wanted to throw our fall fete in an old estate setting, which was why we chose the historic Endicott Estate in Dedham, Massachusetts. The interior of the estate was stunning, yet it felt so cozy, like we were having a fancy party in someone’s home, instead of a non-descript ballroom. We knew it was perfect for us!

The whole day was amazing – albeit mostly a blur – we lucked out with fluky 80-degree weather on a fall day in New England, the food was fantastic, and everyone was happy, feeling the love, and danced all night long. What more could you ask for?

And even though the day was a big, glowing blur, what stands out most is the “first look” we had before we exchanged vows. Being able to see each other beforehand was so fun and exciting, and set us both at ease the moment we laid eyes on one another. We spent pretty much the entire day laughing, especially during the first look session. Yes, it was absolutely everything I had hoped the day would be!

{Advice for Couples} Advice? Honestly, it’s the cheesiest, most cliché thing ever to say, but I’ll say it anyway because, thanks to Keith, I now know it to be an absolute truth: when you’re with the right person, you know it with every ounce of your being. It’s the most effortless, euphoric, wonderful feeing in the world and you have zero doubts. Zero. Because you just know you’re about to embark on the most wonderful journey of your life, with the one person for whom your heart truly beats. It really is as simple as that. If you feel that way, I don’t think any advice is needed :)
