A whimsical wedding at Willowdale Estate in Topsfield, MA



Maria & Colin met when they were TWELVE years old and have been smitten since middle school. They’ve grown up to become pretty kick-ass adults, built a life together, and can now proudly call themselves husband and wife!⁠⁠ They had a beautiful summer wedding at Willowdale Estate in Topsfield after getting ready at the adorable Garrison Inn in Newburyport.

The best parts of the day?⁠⁠
– Dad cried during the first look with his daughter, so did Colin when he saw Maria ⁠⁠
– Maria wore the same shoes she wore to PROM with Colin ⁠⁠
– Lucy the tiny pup joined for the ceremony and was such a good girl. She’s 12! ⁠⁠
– Maria HANDMADE the escort wedding favors for all her guests she’s a ceramicist and threw 100+ mini pots on the wheel for months leading up to the big day. Also her jacket. Also her welcome sign. #boss
– So. Many. Bubble. Guns. ⁠⁠
– The ice cream sundae bar and custom cookies ⁠⁠
– The live wedding painter making art throughout the night ⁠⁠
– Maria & Colin’s choreographed first dance under the STUNNING greenery all over the tent ⁠⁠

Thank you to all the amazing vendors!
