When Jen and Rob reached out to me to photograph their Cape Cod wedding, the excitement for a wedding OUTSIDE of Rhode Island was palpable. I pictured all the Cape Cod, beachy + nautical things! Their vision was for the quintessential summer wedding with a mix of traditional, nautical, and elegance. And like other weddings I’ve photographed, I love both an island wedding and one with nautical style.
I’d say Jen and Rob’s wedding at the quaint Chequessett Yacht & Country Club was the ultimate Cape Cod wedding!!
After some photos of the bride and groom getting ready, we scooted over to the historic Uncle Tim’s Bride for Jen and Rob’s First Look! This iconic bridge was built in the 1800s and was such a unique spot to do a First Look. There was definitely some wedding day jitters, but luckily the First Look was great for Jen + Rob to get those nerves calmed.
Jen and Rob tied the knot by the sea. They were surrounded by friends and family on a white sand beach with beautiful views of Wellfleet Harbor. Guests enjoyed cocktails in the old Boathouse while browsing their oyster escort cards and slurping down clams at the raw bar. Meanwhile as cocktail hour closed, we gathered the whole wedding for a group photo. We then headed up the hill to the Country Club for an elegant sit-down dinner. Toasts were made, sentimental speeches from the groom prompted tears, and before long we were headed back down to the Boathouse for the real party! Jen and Rob cut the cake, walked barefoot on the beach for sunset photos and danced the night away to the band GQ and the Lady.
Congratulations to Jen + Rob!! You have now gotten me hooked on Cape Cod weddings!
