Andres and Nicole were married on an incredible Autumn day in New England. The location of their ceremony and celebration was the Lyman Estate, also known as The Vale, a historic country house located in Waltham, MA. This unique setting provided the perfect combination of elegance and intimacy that the couple wanted to create for their guests.
This gorgeous couple met in San Diego in October of 2016 when Nicole crashed Andres’ brothers birthday party and the two spent the night chatting away. Years later, they went on their first official date! Finally last year, while Nicole was getting her PHD at Harvard, the two moved to Cambridge and were engaged.
We stared out day at the Lyman Estate as our bride and groom got ready for their ceremony. This is always one of our favorite times to shoot! There is alway so much wonderful energy, joy and nervous anticipation as couples ready themselves for their wedding Ceremony. It’s also a lovely time to capture candid moments of the couple with their wedding party and families.
As we moved on to the ceremony, the scene was set with clear blue skies above and colorful leaves crunching underfoot. One of Andres’ favorite moments of the day was seeing Nicole come down the aisle to him. Indeed his expression is priceless and absolutely adorable. For Nicole, she loved reciting and hearing their personal vows, as did Andres. And so, under an arbor lush with fall flowers, surrounded by dear guests, our bride and groom became husband and wife!
Next was the cocktail hour where Andres and Nicole enjoyed their photo session with family and friends as well as heartfelt toasts on the staircase just off the Oval Parlor of the Estate. The celebration continued in the Grand Ballroom where guest gathered for dining and dancing!
Nicole and Andres, thank you so much for having us at your wedding! It was so wonderful to be there to capture your picture perfect Fall wedding ceremony and amazing party, especially the Halloween dance!
Wishing you both much happiness in the many years to come!
