If you love all things classic with a hint of sparkle and a beautiful love story, you’re going to love Michelle and Jerry’s Raffael’s Walpole wedding photos. This past weekend began a new wedding season and it could not have been more beautiful for one of the sweetest couples, Michelle and Jerry!! Their Raffael’s Walpole wedding photos are filled with the warmest moments, tears of joy, exuberant celebration and fun, and an endearing chapter of a love story that’s only beginning.
Last spring while visiting the Cape with family, Jerry planned the perfect proposal with all things Disney because Michelle loves Disney!! He even made Will You Marry Me signs in the classic Disney font. Isn’t that the sweetest!!
She said yes, and fast forward a year later and they are married!! I shared more about their loved story here for with their engagement session photos.
Michelle was such a gorgeous bride and she indeed looked like a princess from head to toe. Literally. She wore a beautiful jeweled accented veil and her adorable Kate Spade Keds in what I’m calling bridal turquoise were the best!
Their day began with the bridal party getting ready at a nearby hotel.
I love that they exchanged gifts and had them delivered by the maid of honor and best man.
There were joyful tears all day, and one of those moments happened when Michelle and her dad shared a first look. He could not hold back the tears as he saw his baby girl in her wedding gown. Love!!
After a short drive to Raffael’s, we headed outside for bridal party photos. While there had been bouts of snow and rain earlier during the week, the sun came out and the temperatures warmed up for their day.
The gazebo area at Raffael’s Walpole was filled with evergreens that I was able to use as a backdrop to hide the snow and make some beautiful photos of them.
After the bridal party photos, we tucked the bride and groom away for the start of the ceremony.
When Michelle turned the corner with her father to walk down the aisle, the tears began to flow from Jerry’s eyes as his beautiful bride made her way towards him.
Their ceremony began with a sweet description of each chapter written in their story from their first date, Jerry asking Michelle to marry him and the moments leading up to their wedding day.
They were beaming with joy as they walked back down the aisle together as husband and wife.
We headed back outside for a few bridal party photos and portraits of just the two them.
The celebration would continue as they entered the ballroom announced as Mr and Mrs with the cheering of their family and friends with streamers in hand.
Michelle and Jerry, you two are the sweetest and it has been an absolute pleasure getting to know you both and be part of your beautiful day. Michelle, my answer is a definite yes to that question that you asked me at the end of the night:). I’m sending hugs your way, and I hope that you are enjoying your honeymoon at the happiest place on Earth. Much love to you both!!!! xo, Shawon
