Lisa and Sean

Lisa and Sean were married on the beach surrounded by a small circle of their closest friends and family. The bride and groom were so casual and relaxed about their wedding, and this allowed them to truly enjoy their day. The event was simple and intimate, and charming without being fancy. The girls made their own bouquets of daisies, wore little black dresses in varying styles, and most impressively, Lisa found her dress on ebay, and, as she is the perfect sample size, didn't have to make ANY alterations! The only part of the day approaching drama was when the tiny chihuaua ring-bearer had a near dress-ruining incident--but even then, Lisa maintained her cool, collected, low-maintenance bride mein. Despite the small number of guests, there were a surprising number of dogs present. The Inn--Simmons Homestead in Hyannis--is so neat and quirky, and the owner himself is a collector of cats (and antique red cars, animal figurines, mugs, etc.)--so furry guests were very welcome at the weekend's festivities. In fact, the Chihuaua and Indiana, Lisa and Sean's black lab, were in the wedding (see Indiana below in her flower girl attire).

The Inkeeper is also a collector of plants, and this one twined up the staircase, along the landing, and crept all the way down the wall beside it--impressive!

The newlyweds were very sweet during their first dance, sung/played by Lee Sylvester (, a friendly, talented guitarist with an amaaaazing voice.

I like how sassy Lisa looks in the first one, and the second looks like an ad for the inn...It was such a unique place, I'm happy to promote it! Lisa and Sean, thanks for letting me be part of your day; I wish you two many adventures in the years to come.
