We're back on the Cape to celebrate the wedding of our new favorite west coast imports slash east coast export's, Amber and Brian! This vocally and musically inclined pair got hitched this past fall at the historical Overbrook House in Bourne. This was our second time at the retreat and our first time meeting the bride and groom face to face as they've been kicking it on the west coast for awhile, though Brian assures me he's still a rabid New England sports fan, and who wouldn't be?!
The wedding day kicked off with both the bride and groom and their respective wolfpacks hanging out in the big house to get ready. They took full advantage of the space and put a personal touch on the living room that we thought was pretty cool. As Amber and the ladies prepared with a champagne toast upstairs, Brian and the men were having a quick jam session in the living room that pretty much set the tone for all the awesomeness to come.
We had a real storybook kind of setting for the first look in the woods with the sun breaking through the canopy. As Amber approached Brian we half expected little cartoon animals to start popping out from behind tree trunks and bushes.
The ceremony was as awesome as the first look and we're wondering who we should be thanking for the cleanest audio source we've ever had. It shouldn't really have come as too much of a surprise, however given our bride and grooms experience on the mic.
After some cocktails the newlyweds and their guests retired under the tent for a little shade, food and some great toasts by some close friends. Brian told us the story of his courtship of Amber, which came with advice for young Matthew to consider later in life. Good advice.
As if things hadn't gone well enough, the wedding party entrances, first dance and parent dances were outstanding! Not to mention a touching vocal performance by Amber for Brian. We dug it!
Easily said, this couple are the cats pajamas. We had a great time capturing their wedding day and getting to know them and their wild, crazy, awesome friends and family. We hope you enjoy the highlights and a big congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Packer!!!!
