Hayley and Jarod || Granite Links Golf Club || Quincy, Massachusetts

Hayley and Jarod had a beautiful sunny day for their wedding & reception, both held at Granite Links in Quincy. I had never shot there before, and was wowed by the cool view of the city! Here’s Hayley arriving, do you think she’s excited much? Nancy Antoine did her make-up and it looked great.

Loved the detail on the bridesmaid dresses…

Hayley’s mom was so cute all day – Hayley’s the youngest with three older brothers….so you can imagine how excited her mom was for her little girl’s big day..

I was loving this crazy light coming through the windows…

Jarod and Hayley seeing each other for the first time.

Again with the crazy light!

They had a interfaith ceremony right there at Granite Links. I especially liked this reading which was from Song of Solomon 2:10-13. Jarod was in charge of picking out the readings. It’s nice to hear something besides “Love is patient, love is kind…” once in awhile. (I’m not knockin’ it – I had it at my wedding!!) Anyway, here’s an excerpt:

“Set me as a seal upon your heart,
as a seal upon your arm;
for love is strong as death,
passion fierce as the grave.”

I love this one of them under the chuppah.

Jarod and Hayley took a few minutes to practice dancing before the guests came in.

Pretty light coming in on the gorgeous centerpieces by Fino.

Who doesn’t love a good hora?

The hora got a bit crazy, and Hayley’s bussle ripped, but a quick pit stop into the bridal suite and she was back in the game. No bridezilla here!

Yummy green cake by Icing on the Cake.

Hayley’s mom making her toast….she talked about Hayley’s last night in her room as a single girl. Whenever I hear this stuff, I swear I’m going to blink and I’m going to be at Lee’s wedding before I know it.

One of the toasts mentioned that Jarod was perfect for Hayley, because if he was patient enough to be a Cubs fan, he was patient enough for her!

The band was Radiance, and they were super energetic and had everyone on the dance floor. They even played Jesse’s Girl, so they get high marks in my book!

Mark Willand‘s crew was there doing video, they worked really well with us, and I’m sure their video will be great!

In lieu of traditional favors, the bride and groom made a donation to the Polycystic Kidney Disease Foundation.

Congratulations you two!!! Feel free to leave them your best wishes!

    The pictures came out amazing. Nancy, I attended the wedding and noticed how you went out of your way every time to capture to perfect shot even if it required you getting down on the floor to catch the right angle. The wedding was beautiful and Hayley and Jarod are fortunate to have had you there to photograph all the intimate moments.ReplyCancel

    These pictures have incredible timing, composition, lighting…an of course, focus on a beautiful bride (Jarod’s not so bad either). I am truly jealous of your talent!

    Each shot is a museum piece. They are stills that compress a lifetime into each timless passage. Bravo!
