Natalie and Ethan’s intimate Coachmen’s Lodge Wedding in Bellingham, MA was my last wedding of the year! I can’t believe my 2023 wedding season has come to an end, but what a wonderful year it was. I am so happy I ended my busy season with Natalie and Ethan’s intimate wedding. Their day was beautiful and relaxed. With under 20 guests consisting of only family and their good friend, Joey, who officiated, it was a very personal day.
Intimate Coachmen’s Lodge Wedding
Before walking down the aisle, Natalie shared a first look with her dad before the ceremony. Ethan and Natalie did not do a first look, and when Ethan saw her for the first time walking down the aisle, his reaction was priceless. He was so overcome with joy and love; it was the sweetest moment. Family watched with such love as they exchanged their vows. You could feel the affection between Natalie and Ethan, as well as their family’s love surrounding them.
After tying the knot, we headed outside to capture romantic wedding portraits of the newlyweds. Thankfully, the rain slowed down enough that we didn’t need the clear umbrellas the whole time! However, even with the umbrellas, their pictures are gorgeous!
Their wedding day focused on each other and spending time with their family. They wanted guests to have a good time, enjoy the food, dancing, and celebrating, but they also wanted to savor each moment, which is what led them to have an intimate ceremony followed by dinner. When describing their wedding, Natalie said it’s essentially “the fanciest dinner of their lives”! After sharing dinner with loved ones they had their cake cutting. Natalie and Ethan then snuck away for a private last dance. However, the night wasn’t over yet! Afterwards, they headed to the Lodge’s bar for an after party, where more of their friends and family joined them in celebrating! Natalie and Ethan, it was a joy to capture your special wedding day memories! I am so thankful to have been a part of your special day. Cheers to you both!
