Tori and Dan knew each other from way back in their schools days in Saugus. It wasn’t until much later when Dan had been back from two tours in Iraq and Tori was in nursing school did they meet again working in a clothing store together! After many long shifts, late nights up talking the two became close. And after 11 years together, many happy moments and many challenges as well, these two, who “supported each other and pushed each other to be the best versions of ourselves” were finally to become husband and wife.
The couple chose Tupper Manor for it’s elegance and romantic feeling that reminded them of Disneys “Beauty and the Beast”! For Dan and Tori, the day was very much about family. Not only sharing the day with the loved ones in attendance but also remember those who were there in spirit.
We started our day with the couple as they got ready for their first look. Tori was looking lovely in her bejeweled gown and glittering shoes. We almost expected glass slippers! 😉 Dan was looking handsome in black tux and bow tie, a true Prince Charming! As the gents played pool, Tori had her first look with her dad in the grand staircase of the Manor. Next, it was time to see her groom. First looks with couples are some of our favorite moments and it was lovely to capture Tori and Dan as they saw each other for the first time on their wedding day.
The Ceremony took place on the front lawn near the fountain. Guests gathered with fans in hand for the union. With family and friends (and lovely red and pink flowers) surrounding them, Tori and Dan made their vows and became husband and wife! All were then invited to “Be Our Guest” at the reception in the conservatory. Tables were adorned with more lush florals and remembrances of dear ones. The bride and groom entered the ballroom for their first dance to cheers and applause and had their first dance, finishing with a perfect dip! All were then treated to loving and fun toasts from the best man and maid of honor and the feast and celebration continues into the night!
Tori and Dan, thank you for making us part of your magical day! Wishing you a happy ever after for your tale as old as time!
