Sara & Steve – Rehearsal Dinner

 

Like many of my couples this year, Sara & Steve don’t live in the Boston area.  They live out in California, and we weren’t actually able to meet until the night before their wedding.  I “require” all of my couples to have an engagement shoot before the wedding so we can spend some time getting to know each other in front of the camera – it just makes it SO much easier to get great portraits on the wedding day.  Since we didn’t get a chance to meet earlier, we captured some portraits before their Rehearsal Dinner.  I met up with them at their hotel in Portsmouth and we went for a walk…

Steve does NOT like to have his photo taken.  He said that he didn’t think I could get a good photo of him – that I couldn’t get a natural smile from him.  Haha!  Don’t test me, people!   ;)

After our portrait session, we drove up to Sara’s parents’ place on Gerrish Island for the Rehearsal Dinner.  Driving down their street, I spotted this little guy out my window.

Steve’s Dad was walking along the shore behind the house, looking for rocks.  Totally endearing :)

And some of the boys were throwing rocks.  I loved how synchronized they were!

Steve & Sara spent the rest of the evening laughing and enjoying a some time with their friends and family.  It was a fun and very relaxed party!

[…] Sara & Steve’s wedding was planned to be outdoors at Sara’s parents’ home by the ocean up in Maine.  But the day ended up being a wet one… I mean, it did not stop raining for a moment all day!  They didn’t let it ruin anything though – the wedding was beautiful and everyone had a marvelous time!
