The day was filled with love and happiness. I too shed a few tears behind the lens. Especially when Tracey gifted Quinn a brooch with a picture of her belated grandmother. There were many details that were handcrafted by the couple such as the wood where the cake stood. Tracey also carried a heart necklace on her bouquet, that was originally the two rings belonging to her grandparents that passed. Every detail of the day was perfect. Their fall New England wedding was nothing short of gorgeous. It was an honor to document their love story.
Here is the story from the couple:
We met online 2013. Emails turned to texts and then to phone calls. The first time we met in person was at a tea dance at Blackstone Tap. October 12th, we consider this day our “Dating Anniversary”. We sat and talked for 4 hours that night about everything under the sun. It was like we had known each other forever. Turns out that we have many friends in common and new coincidences kept popping up. Since then we have been on many adventures together, beach days, hikes, day trips to Boston, river tubing, concerts and many more. Always finding new places to explore together.
In December 2015 we celebrated Carrie’s Birthday with a great dinner and a homemade cake. It was a great night and afterwards we were dancing in the bedroom. It is not uncommon for Carrie to start dancing with me in random places. Usually it’s the kitchen or other areas of the house at random moments. Even in line at the deli counter or the frozen food section of the supermarket. She even sings things to me in the car to the radio, changing all the words to fit our conversation or her mood. Always making me laugh.
On this day I was instructed to sit down and close my eyes while she retrieved a surprise for me. Surprise??? Hey wait it’s your birthday I am not supposed to get anything!! When I was instructed to open my eyes there was Carrie propped on one knee with a beautiful open box poised in front of me containing a beautiful ring. She said all I want for my birthday is to spend the rest of my life with you. Will you marry me? Of course I said yes!!
I found out later that the original plan was to propose on New Year’s Eve but she just could not wait. Like a kid with a quarter burning a hole in her pocket. The first person to know was my son. She had asked him for his blessing and I thought that was the sweetest thing ever. He had known for at least a month before hand and believe it or not my son actually kept a secret!!
