I can’t think of a better way to finish this year’s wedding posts! I just love the Forchielli family! They’re my kind of family. They’re incredibly close, but are happy to welcome anyone into their good time. And when they have a party, they pull no punches! The day started with a beautiful, semi-private sneak peek (you’ll see Melissa’s mom couldn’t help but peek out the window at the Commons) followed by some beautiful outdoor (and maybe a little chilly!) photos. The backdrop of The Topsfield Commons is perfect for a winter wedding! Melissa & Ed’s ceremony incorporated so many family members, including Melissa’s uncle as officiant. And the party was amazing! Specialty drinks, festive intermezzo, fabulous candy station, passed french fries, and so much more! They even hired a professional painter to capture the scene. Way to go Melissa & Ed! I loved every second of photographing your wedding!
