Elena & Dan’s Wedding – The Crane Estate

 

Elena & Dan got married this Fall at the beautiful Great House at Castle Hill on the Crane Estate in Ipswich.  It was a nice sunny day, but turned very cold and windy just before we got to the estate.  Not the best combination for an outdoor ceremony, but they made the best of it and the whole event turned out just lovely!  Here’s a look at a few of my favorites from the day!

Making sure the veil is secure enough to withstand the wind!

My talented friend Ned Jackson came to second shoot with me for the day.  He captured some beautiful images, including this one of the ring bearer helping his little sister :)

And Ned ran to the upstairs window to capture this shot of the grounds.  Talk about a gorgeous spot for a wedding!

By the time the ceremony ended, we only had a few minutes left of daylight.  I hate how early the sun sets in the Fall & Winter!  It would have been cool to photograph Dan & Elena around the grounds, but luckily the inside of the mansion was beautiful as well!  We caught a few great portraits on the stairs.  I don’t think they were supposed to sit on that bench though… oops!

Ned captured this shot (laying on the stairs, if I do recall).  How perfect is that painting behind them of the boy & girl on a bench?

First Dance!

OK, I have to admit, I don’t normally love cake cutting shots.  It’s just not my favorite part of the reception.  But I loved this shot… the way she’s grabbing his face is so sweet!

[…] Dan & Elena’s wedding at The Crane Estate was so beautiful!  I’d never shot there before and was just blown away by how gorgeous it is!  Between the stellar location, and the fabulous flowers and details by Kate Parker, I figured I’d share a few more images from their day! […]

Wow! These look great! What a gorgeous spot for a wedding!
