It was a pleasure photographing Jess & Nick’s seaside wedding on a gorgeous summer day, after doing their engagements almost exactly a year before!
Jess & her bridesmaids got ready for her big day at the Beech Tree Bed & Breakfast in Rockport.
Krista Russo did a fabulous job with their makeup!
The lace details in Jess’s Maggie Sottero wedding gown were STUNNING!
lace, heels, and bling! oh my! 😉
Mother & daughter <3
Sweet flowers & note Nick had delivered to the room for his bride-to-be…
While Jess & her bridesmaids were getting ready at the Beech Tree B&B, Nick & his groomsmen were doing their own form of big day preparations…
FOOTBALL, of course! They threw the ball around a bit before getting into their tuxes! 🙂
After football, the guys toasted the groom with a nice shot of whiskey!
meanwhile…at The Beech Tree…
Such a beautiful bride!
In the trolley, very excited to be on their way to Jess & Nick’s first look!
Nick & his groomsmen waiting patiently at Stacy Boulevard in Gloucester…
Awestruck by his beautiful bride! <3
Now they’re ♫ going to the chapel & they’re….♫
St. Anthony’s By The Sea is such a unique & beautiful old church, inside & out!
The new Mr. & Mrs. Glowacki!
I loved that Nick & Jess opted for a trolley for their bridal party to cruise around in!
Celia’s flowers beautifully complimented Jess’s detailed gown
Jess’s cousins made THE cutest little flower girl & ring bearer!
Their nautical theme was elegantly displayed throughout their reception venue, The Elks at Bass Rocks.
Nothing like a champagne toast with an ocean view!
Gorgeous cake from Cakes for Occasions
Getting bustled up & ready to dance!
One of the sweetest parts of their first dance was Nick singing along to his bride <3
Look at the happiness on the faces of these two proud parents.
The bride & groom chose the band BearFight to keep their guests groovin’ all night long!
They certainly did and the dance floor was PACKED for the entire reception! I can see why BearFight is known as “Boston’s Party Band.”
BearFight created such a party…at the end of the night they called the bride & groom up to sing along with them to “Don’t Stop Believin'”
And the crowd went wild….
The bride & groom were also treated to a “super moon” to cap off the night! Can’t get much more special than that! 😉

What was the most memorable moment of your day?
Nick- Sitting down for dinner and taking it all in.
Jess-Our first look. I’m so happy we decided to do a first look. The best man and maid of honor toasts were really good too!
What was your favorite detail?
Nick-Our band, they’re awesome!
Jess-I agree the band was awesome. My second favorite detail was our wedding cake.
Any advice for future brides/grooms?
Nick-At the end of the day, it’s about you and your bride/groom. Don’t waste energy worrying about everyone else.
Jess-Make sure to enjoy your day because it goes by really fast.
Funniest memory from your wedding day?
Nick-Being invited up on stage for a performance of “Don’t Stop Believing”
Jess-Definitely singing with the band at the end of the night because that was so out of character for us.
If you could do it all over, would you change anything?
Jess-I would have planned for more time between the ceremony and reception. It felt like we were really rushed.
Where did you go on your honeymoon?
We’re planning to go on our honeymoon this Winter. Someplace sunny and warm.
