A few weeks back, Josh and I found ourselves returning to Gloucester for Alaina & Jon’s wedding. From the moment we walked in, we were treated like family, not only by Alaina & Jon, but by their families and friends as well. We were so excited to finally meet their adorable son Caleb (seriously, this little guy is already a little Gap model), and right away, he and Josh were fast friends. We started our day in Alaina’s room, where you could feel the excitement and buzzing from a mile away. We were joined by another Josh as well on the videography, time the amazing Josh Rask from Clark + Walker Studios. Let us tell you, Josh is a great team member, and we worked together flawlessly, even when time was less than on our side throughout the day! :) There is something about Alaina & Jon that you can’t really put into words – they are both so content with each other, and happy to be a family. Rather than me trying (unsuccessfully) to put what we’re trying to get at, let me just show you.
Caleb got such a huge kick out of knocking to his mom while she had her makeup done!
Meanwhile, just across the way, Jon and his men were putting on their final touches before heading off to the ceremony!
Alaina looked radiant in her gown – her eyes perfectly matched their ocean celebration.
Once we had everyone to Stage Fort Park, their intimate ceremony began, and nobody could hold back their emotions. It was so wonderful to see these two families come together to celebrate a very wonderful couple. I loved Alaina’s reaction when she finally got to Jon!
With everyone over the moon for Alaina & Jon, it was time for some quick and relaxed family portraits before we sent everyone off while we stole the happy couple for a few minutes before we let them run off to their celebration.
These guys just melted away into their own little world for a bit, and it was great. We are so lucky that we are able to be there for moments like this every weekend.
These were some pretty funny toasts you guys, and Alaina admitted it was one of the highlights of the night for her, with all of her friends and family surprising them with wonderful memories and stories of how amazing these two are!
With all of the formalities complete, it was time to let loose on the dance floor, complete with masquerade masks, hats, and even the Burger King himself!
Just in case you need a refuel, chocolate covered fruit and an entire s’mores station to the rescue!
Alaina & Jon, we can’t thank you both enough for choosing us to document your wedding day. We wish you a lifetime of happiness in the years to come watching Caleb grow!
