Incredible! There really are few other words to describe Mary & Sergio’s stunning mid-November wedding day!
We had been looking forward to celebrating with Mary & Sergio for months! We had gotten together in mid-May this past Spring to capture some romantic e-session images in downtown New Bedford. We knew that Mary & Sergio would be an amazing couple to photograph on their wedding day. This unique couple is full of love, laughter and an insatiable appetite for living life and inspiring those around them. They certainly left their mark on us! This couple’s wedding images are some of very favorite from this season!
We started over at Sergio’s house, where we met up with his family, the guys and Mary’s dad, too! After snapping some fun images, we raced over to the Waypoint Event Center – the brand, spanking new wedding reception hall at the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott in downtown New Bedford. Stunning! (this place is quickly going to be one of our favorites in SouthCoast!!) Mary & her girls were absolutely gorgeous…wow!
Racing out of the Waypoint, we noticed Mary’s transportation to the church – an immaculate 1961 vintage, mint-condition Rolls Royce awaited Mary, complete with chauffeur-extraordinaire Tom, from A Formal Limousine Company – the best in SouthCoast!
Rumbling down New Bedford’s Route 18, we pulled up at perhaps one of the most beautiful churches in the Whaling City – St. Anthony’s of Padua Roman Catholic Church on Acushnet Avenue. Splendid with all its lights, St. Anthony’s can inspire just about anybody!
Outside of St. Anthony’s, we captured some intimate moments with Mary & Sergio on the steps. Despite the 40-degree weather and winds whipping up against Mary’s train & veil, she was so enthusiastic and flexible! On your wedding day, it is so important to go with the flow, and be as open-minded as possible – you never know when you’ll find the ‘just right’ artistic moment!
Mary & Sergio jumped back into their ’61 Rolls Royce, warming up for just a few short minutes! We rumbled down the cobblestone streets of historic New Bedford, parking on William Street across from Freestones. With wedding party & families assembled, we enjoyed New Bedford’s Custom House, Massachusetts 54th Regiment Plaza as well as the various shops across from the Whaling Museum to create some wedding portrait fun!
This is one of our favorites! We love how New Bedford’s world-famous fishing fleet finds its way into the wedding formals. It really adds some fun and some texture to the way in which these photographs share the fun & romance of their day.
After a terrific 40 minute portrait session dowtown, we were all ready to party!
Just a stone’s throw away, was the reception site – New Bedford’s Waypoint Event Center, hosted by LaFrance Hospitality. LaFrance has done a great job just about everywhere – Bittersweet Farm, White’s, Rachel’s Lakeside, etc. We were also really psyched to see DJ Gene Daniels & Lana, too! This was an awesomem party! The food was spectacular, the setting was intimate, and the bride & groom danced the evening away! We can’t wait to photograph again at the Waypoint!
