Stephanie and Fred, this day was a whirlwind from start to finish! Never have I ever had to fight my way through throngs of people, lining the sidewalks for a Christmas parade to get to a venue, and then leave during the first big snow storm of the season! I guess thats what should be expected at a December wedding! Stephanie and Fred tied the knot in front of friends at family, at St. Mary’s Star of The Sea Church in Beverly MA. They then moved the party over to the Hawthorne Hotel in Salem. The historic hotel was decked out in holiday cheer, including a ceiling scraping Christmas tree, constructed out of potted poinsettias! Wreathes, lights and garlands covered the inside and outside of the hotel, and paired beautifully with the red flowers and gowns worn by the wedding party. Stephanie and Fred not only braved the cold for their formal portraits, but went out into the falling snow TWICE for some romanic wintery magic shots! What a way to wrap up the 2019 season! I am so thankful fo everything that 2019 has brought me, and I can’t wait to see what 2020 has in store. Happy Holidays!
