Michelle & Luke - Wedding Day! Lowell & Andover, Massachusetts

I'm writing this blog from my hotel room in Michigan. I'm shooting a wedding here today, but I have a non-written rule about having one wedding blog up before I shoot another. So even though I'm pushing it down to the last few hours, I'm still getting this next blog up "on-time"! :)

Michelle & Luke are amazing. No, really. I know that all of their friends and family that are reading this right now are shaking their heads in agreement with me with a sweet smile on their face and the rest of my blog followers are thinking "yah, ALL your couples are amazing... whatever." While this is very true, Michelle & Luke just have an extra something that sends them over the top amazing-wise.

You may remember their engagement photos (click HERE for the link) that I shot last year while I was in Boston shooting a different wedding. I said then that Michelle has the best personality ever, and it stands true today. Couple her sweet, caring heart with Luke's gentleness & kindness and they are one heaven-sent match.

To the new Mr & Mrs... Thank you SO very much for allowing me the true HONOR that it was to watch the two of you interact on your wedding day. You have such a pure joy for life, that I walked away from your wedding feeling refreshed & renewed. Thanks for being a blessing to everyone you touch. I love you both!

To the photos. :)

It's hard being beautiful....

Thankfully, lollipops cover a multitude of sins. :)
All of Michelle's bridesmaids were SO beautiful!
Michelle was a picture-perfect bride.
She got dressed in their new home.... I saw this photo from their engagement session last year & had to take advantage of it. :)
The next few photos were taken outside of the house that Michelle grew up in....
My Boston-Bride's! Michelle & Laura! (Click HERE to see Laura & Ryan's wedding from last year!)
I told Luke when I arrived at the church before the wedding "Dude, your wife is super hot." He got a huge grin on his face and said "Oh..... I know" :)
Luke had the BEST faces through the entire ceremony. I adore the way he looks at his bride.
The new Mr & Mrs!!
Their plan was to exit straight out of the church and into the limo to head to the reception site where we did all of the photos, but I snagged them down a hallway at their church for this next shot. Michelle & Luke met when they were 13 and were high school sweethearts. Actually, they even went to their church's high school, so these particular set of lockers were all too appropriate for a quick shot....

Then to the reception at the Andover Country Club....
Most-fabulous wedding party possibly ever. Loved them all.

There was a crazy huge thunderstorm at the beginning of the reception, which caused the reception facility to loose power for the first little bit of the reception. All was well though, spirits stayed high and as the evening continued, the electricity came back on, the DJ was back up & running & this rainbow popped into the sky.....
I'm thinking someone was trying to steal my job....
