Katie and Paul – Lyman Estate, Waltham

I don’t think Katie and Paul realized it when they hired me, but they are totally my people!  Paul wore Millennium Falcon cuff links the day of the wedding.  AND…they have a dog named Gimli.  That’s right, they’re geek-tastick!  And those of you who know me, know the depth of my geek-dom.  Katie and Paul had a lovely wedding at the Lyman Estate.  The Lyman Estate is gorgeous, inside and out.  After a sweet first look inside the mansion, we headed out to the lawn for formal photos.  The ceremony was on the property under a gorgeous Copper Beach tree.  Guests enjoyed lawn games on the property during cocktail hour.  And the celebration continued in the tent under the light of a full moon.  Here are some of my favorite photos from the day.


Katie incorporated some lovely heirlooms into her ensemble.  Including a locket that was her grandmother’s.  Oh, and did I mention Millennium Falcon cuff links?


The mansion on the Lyman Estate is gorgeous.  Just the trip to the downstairs for the first look created some great images.



The navy bridesmaid’s dresses and groomsmen suits were perfect against the dark green lawn.  While the vibrant bouquets added a pop of fall color.  OK, can we talk about how cute Gimli is?


Gimli was the perfect ring bearer!  He was so good during the ceremony.  He sat politely and watched on as Katie and Paul were married.


As summer turned to fall, it was a great day to be out in the tent.  I love Katie’s choice of succulents for wedding favors.  The decor also included a custom monogram that added to the simple elegance of the day.


Before guests entered the tent, we got a fabulous sunset in the front of the estate.  It was the perfect time to slip away for a quick photo.  I also love the wreath Katie wore when she took her veil off.  It was a lovely touch.
