Sweet Gloucester Seaside Wedding by Michael and Carina Photography

There is a magical feel about film. And so when a wedding submission comes in, and I can immediately tell it was captured with a film camera, my heart flutters. Morgan and Mark's wedding just radiated with warmth and love through Michael and Carina Photography's captures.

This Gloucester couple chose Morgan's grandmother's home for their wedding day because they were both raised on the water and loved anything that has to do with being near it. And of course, the sweet family connection makes it even more perfect.

Every couple always receives a questionnaire from me to help me get to know their wedding story through their eyes, and we had a first. Mark is our first groom to officially chime in alongside his wife! And you know we loved it! When asked what their favorite memories were, Morgan's favorite memory of their wedding day was after the ceremony when the two of them got to have a few minutes alone to share their excitement while Mark responded that his was "waking up that morning knowing that he would be marrying the girl of his dreams."

And we have to stop right there, folks, because any husband-to-be who utters those words, well, he's basically stolen the show already. ;)
