Heidi & Chad’s Wedding | Independence Harbor | Assonet, MA

Wedding Date: August 20, 2015

Ah this wedding was so much fun, and so beautiful!!  Heidi and Chad were married on a beautiful Summer day last month, at the Independence Harbor in Assonet, MA.  I had photographed their engagement photos in September of 2014, in downtown New Bedford, and after having such a blast with them then, I couldn’t wait to be their wedding photographer!

I’ve photographed other weddings at Independence Harbor, but it had been about a year or so since I’d been there last. Wedding photographers are always happy when a venue, such as Independence Harbor, has such beautiful grounds to photograph on! I was sure to capture lots of beautiful wedding photos on these beautiful grounds in Assonet.

I love when I can keep in touch with my couples, as I did very well with Heidi over the course of the year.  I think it helps to build a relationship, and make the day of the wedding that much more relaxed.

I started my day with photos of Heidi getting ready.  I’ll never forget getting to the house and Heidi answering the door, almost all ready to go and a huge smile on her face!  We had some extra time so I was able to get some photos of Heidi alone, something I’m not always able to do, due to the timeline of the day.  I’m so glad I was able to though, Heidi is gorgeous!  Her dress was perfect, like it was made for her, such a perfect bride!

The ceremony was perfect, with laughs and tears and lots, and lots of love!  Beautiful sun, beautiful people.

The reception was a blast! The bridal party even had choreographed a line dance as a surprise to everyone! It was so fun watching them, I almost joined in!

I couldn’t ask for a more perfect day, and I hope Heidi and Chad enjoy these memories for many, many years to come!
