FALL WEDDING AT THE PIERCE HOUSE, LINCOLN MA [MR. & MRS. ELHILOW]
Updated: Oct 8, 2019
Tori and John celebrated their wedding on a gorgeous fall day in the scenic town of Lincoln, Massachusetts. They met over 11 years ago! This couple has put the time, effort and love into their relationship and it truly shows. Their family, friends and loved ones gathered at the Pierce House garden to support and watch them make this commitment to one another.
When you meet Tori and John you are instantly aware of their love for one another and their vibrant individual personalities as well. They are each such gems of human beings that when they are together they can't help but radiate love and happiness.
The couple had a dreamy ceremony in the Pierce House garden surrounded by vibrant greenery and seasonal flowers cascading over a rustic wooden arch made by the bride's brother! What made their ceremony even more special was their officiant, Tori's grandfather. He added such personal touches to the ceremony as well as a few good belly laughs that I think almost everyone shed a few tears, either from happiness or laughter, or both!
All of these details and special touches of their ceremony were amazing, but I think the best of all was Tori and John's personal vows, which they chose to write themselves. Without realizing it, the couple had the EXACT same opening line in each of their vows. Tori and John both made reference to John's first comment to Tori way back when, 11 years ago when they met, and that was "Hi, my name is John and I am going to be your new best friend". The bride and groom as well as the crowd erupted in laughter at the coincidental matching of their vows. I had to remind myself to keep shooting because I was laughing so much!
Tori & John enjoyed the rest of their day with their friends and family and threw one heck of a party! Tori and John, as well as many family and friends were very involved with the planning of their day and created so many DIY touches that I really enjoyed capturing, such as their watercolor centerpiece signs, all of the floral arrangements, tiny tissue boxes for their guests' "happy tears" during the ceremony, and so many more. The couple even had a surprise butterfly release setup by Tori's cousin! It was one of many beautiful moments throughout their wedding day.
To know Tori and John is to love them, and this couple is most certainly surrounded by lots of love. Congratulations to you two! I can't wait to see you continue to grow and love each other in your marriage!
