Elm Bank Wedding | Lisa and Nick

Lisa and Nick wanted their wedding day to be fun for everyone and they pretty much did everything to ensure that would happen. Many guests started their day relaxing at the pool at the Hotel Indigo in Newton, MA. My second shooter Michael and I started our day there – getting both Lisa and Nick while they prepped for the day with their bridal party. A private trolly service took guests to Saint Paul’s in Wellesley. Afterwards we headed to the beautiful Elm Bank in Wellesley, MA. Its kinda the ultimate locale for an outdoor wedding since the grounds are covered with gardens, unique architectural features and some gorgeous buildings such as the Hunnewell Building. Guests had almost two hours to roam the grounds, sip on cocktails, munch some yummy appetizers and even play Croquet or Football in the lawns.

Lisa and Nick with all the great sports gear they provided their guests for some fun in the huge lawns provided by Elm Bank.
