Anna and Matt || Peabody Essex Museum || Salem, Massachusetts

Hello everyone! I’m so excited to finally share some images from Anna & Matt’s very elegant, but supremely fun at the same time wedding day in Salem. The ceremony and reception were at the Peabody Essex Museum. We started at the hotel as everyone was getting final touches….
I was having total hair envy….her hair looked amazing…


We did all of their pictures before hand in the courtyard behind the museum, so pretty. Flowers by Fino Fresh.

I just love all the old buildings in the background.

Anna and Matt didn’t want any distractions during the ceremony, so we kept a super low-profile.  They said they didn’t notice us once!  

Apparently, Anna is obsessed with dessert (girl after my own heart).  On the menu, it said “Cake!”.   Here it is, before slicing looking lovely, compliments of Icing on the Cake. Yummy food by Vinwood Caterers.

I hope Matt isn’t mad at me for posting this, but I absolutely LOVE this picture!  Dancing is hard….

Found this book in the museum…get it?  Anna and Matt?

I am loving the twirly dresses this year.


Paul Natale kept the dance floor hopping, even played Sea Legs by the Shins during cocktail hour, sweet! (and theme appropriate in the East Marine Hall)

OK, so these folks asked if I would take their picture.  They called it the “time of your life” picture.  You face away from the camera, and then at the last second turn around and hey!  you’re having the time of your life!  Now, my dad did the same thing at a cookout this summer, he said someone had heard about it in California.  Could someone please tell me where this originated?  I’m dying to know.  $10 itunes gift card to the first person who can tell me.
And the bride got Rick Roll’d! I TOLD you this wedding was supremely fun!

Congratulations you two! I hope your honeymoon was awesome!

**update**

I’m STILL waiting to hear about the “time of your life” picture!!!

    Great pictures — thanks, Nancy! No, I don’t mind that you got one of me dancing with my tongue out. There is a reason, after all, that I am known as the Michael Jordan of dance. And I’m so glad you got one of ‘the Rick’ — my father’s patented dance move.ReplyCancel

    You did an excellent job of capturing the venues in the photos. The black-and-whites are especially good for settings like these. Classic!ReplyCancel

    Fantastic photos. Matt, I am afraid “the Rick” picture beats you with your tongue wagging. Nice work though on exhibiting your unique mannerisms.ReplyCancel

    These are so awesome. Anna looks beautiful! I can almost imagine I was there, but of course, these pictures are so amazing, it is making me really sad I wasn’t there. Good times!!ReplyCancel

    The pictures are fantastic. You really captured the joy of the occasion. Thanks for the picture of “The Rick” dance move. It is now preserved for future generations to enjoy and, of course, attempt to duplicate.ReplyCancel

    I have attended several weddings where the photographer played a major role. Not so at Anna and Matt’s. After viewing the pictures, it was clear that Nancy was everywhere yet somehow invisible. Thank you, Nancy! You’re fabulous!ReplyCancel
