Leslie and her groom decided to tie the knot in the fall at the Clarion
Nantasket Beach Resort. The location, just steps from the beach and filled
with New England charm, was a perfect backdrop for their glamorous evening
wedding. An on-site ceremony and reception allowed the bridal party and
guests to relax and enjoy the festivities from the moment they arrived!
An evening wedding suited Leslie’s glamorous and modern style - head to toe!
She had selected vendors months earlier that would travel to her, eliminating
some of the nerve-racking variables of the wedding day. Leslie spent her
preparation afternoon in a versatile zipper-front hoodie- a must do to preserve
hair and makeup styles! She wore her long hair in a partial up-do with
cascading curls down the back provided by Jenni Vale of Dellarias Salon in
Norwood. Her makeup was by Elizabeth Nightingale, www.enightingale.com and
applied to compliment the feel of the dramatic evening. She selected a
strapless bridal gown with a crystal detailed overlay and a ribbon-corseted
back. Her jeweled shoes had a persona of their own, perching on the balcony
for a photo. The jewelry details included drop earrings and a bedazzled
The flowers were assembled with a contemporary flair including a bouquet of
satin wrapped calla lilies. Other floral details included exotics in contrasting
shades of crisp green and deep purple. Natural Surroundings in Hull helped
the bride’s floral wishes materialize as described.
Leslie’s photographer, David Kump, www.kumpphoto.com excelled, not missing
a moment and bounding with crisp creativity! David is passionate about
photography and has over 15 years of professional experience. His style
includes a mix of photojournalism, contemporary art and classic wedding
photography. A perfectly timed photo of the couple’s first dance exactly
captures their silhouette!
Leslie’s precise vision and planning allowed the wedding events to run
smoothly. In fact, the couple made time to steal away to the rooftop terrace for
some romantic pictures. The two are magnificently outlined against a cityscape
sunset- a perfect beginning to happily ever after!
