Danversport Yacht Club Wedding

The Danversport Yacht Club is a stunning wedding venue located in the Danvers, Massachusetts. Its picturesque waterfront location provides the perfect backdrop for a New England wedding! The newly renovated reception hall is white and bright and that is filled with natural light (ayyy I'm a poet). It's beautifully decorated with white and gold accents, creating a sophisticated and timeless ambiance. Outside of the reception space is a deck and balcony that hosts the cocktail hour and offers great views of the harbor! While there are a bunch of outdoor ceremony space options, Kellyn and Alex chose the gazebo surrounded by lush greenery lawn overlooking the harbor.

Meet Kellyn & Alex:

Kellyn & Alex met at a New Years Eve party and started 2017 with a new crush. They had mutual friends which always makes dating a little easier when your friends can give you the *they're not a serial killer* go ahead (orrrr was that just me when going on a first date?). Kellyn is sarcastic and confident while Alex is a quiet and solid. Their chemistry together is obvious - there's like a gravitational pull when they're around each other!!

Their September wedding at the Danversport Yacht Club was such a beautiful celebration. They chose this venue for its stunning waterfront location and elegant atmosphere, and it did not disappoint! Their original wedding date had to be rescheduled during the pandemic and in that time they welcomed a beautiful little girl into the family!! Since they were now a family of three, Kellyn said it felt like it took some pressure off of the wedding and made it so they could truly enjoy it and be present a little bit more. The getting ready photos of Kellyn + Shae below make me feel all the feels - Shae is wearing Kellyn's old dress from when she was just a baby!

Their wedding day was absolutely gorgeous and had full sun for their ceremony... which was all about 3 minutes haha. I think they take the cake for the shortest ceremony I've ever photographed! But it was just what they wanted - "ceremony as short as possible" to do the formalities to make it official and then let's go have some fun!

Later on in the blog you'll see the golden hour photos we took have a little twist to them... smoke gave us a premature sunset! The skies were so smoky from wildfires out west that it made the entire sky orange, and the sun a little more bearable on the hot late summer day.

I'm so grateful to have photographed K+A's wedding and I can't wait to see them again soon for some updated family photos we have scheduled this summer! It's such an honor to be asked to continue to photograph families year after year to document the passing of time and provide heirlooms for future generations!!!
