    Michele Mottola at Special Events Consulting says:

    “It is obvious that David Tucker loves what he does as his pictures always represent the essence of the person who is on the other end of the camera. He is warm, compassionate and so unbelievably talented.   David always scouts out his locations prior and makes many considerations that include LIGHTING,  background, accessibility, timing and ease for guests being photographed all before the event is in full swing. This pro activeness absolutely contributes to the success of any event.  I know my clients are in great hands when they select David Tucker, it is off my list of things to worry about.”

Mattie and Aaron’s “Wedding Tour”!

Musicians, Mattie & Aaron, made their debut as a married couple vis a vis a “wedding tour”. Rather than a traditional wedding where friends come to you, they decided to travel to multiple locations and perform for family and friends in honor of their love and marriage.  The tour began in New York City’s Steinway Hall and ended at The Old Church in Portland, Oregon. I enjoyed photographing their unique and charming wedding celebration at Adelynrood; a retreat center near and dear to Aaron’s family’s hearts in Byfield, MA. Their performance included works by Schubert and Handel, as well as Aaron’s father, Jim, and four contemporary composers who were each commissioned to write a movement for Mattie & Aaron’s “Wedding Suite”. The four movements were titled as follows:

tell it like a secret (Something Old)        – Scott Ordway
Something New                                          – Christian De Gré
Vor Eternity (Something Borrowed)      – Jessica Meyer
Tango (Something Blue)                           – Anne Farber (arr. Butler/Kaiser)

Enjoy highlights and join us in congratulating this artistic pair!!

Kaitlynn and Michael’s wedding at the Crane Estate Ipswich MA.

I’m so pleased to share photos from Kaitlynn and Michael’s amazing wedding at the Crane Estate, Castle Hill. This spectacular wedding venue is perched high above Crane’s Beach, overlooking the Atlantic ocean in Ipswich, MA. Kaitlynn and Michael enjoyed the best of both worlds by getting ready at downtown Boston’s hip and chic four star Godfrey Hotel. This contemporary hotel was a fun and luxurious setting for Kaitlynn and her bridesmaids, and Michael and his groomsmen, to enjoy the pre-wedding excitement.

The couple had originally met at a mutual friend’s birthday party and in Kaitlynn’s own words: “I was under the impression we were in for a night of salsa dancing. I dressed appropriately with bangles, a belly shirt with tassels and a red flower in my hair. When I arrived to our friend’s house I came to realize plans had changed! People were arriving in suits and I learned we were headed to a high end night club. Although I was mortified, it was quite the ice breaker. We thank our mutual friend Nicolle for introducing us. She stood by my side as a bridesmaid while I professed my love for Michael.”

Once we arrived on the beautiful grounds of the Crane Estate, Kaitlynn put on her gorgeous dress in the elegant bridal suite of the Stuart-style mansion, designed by the world-renowned architect David Adler. Katitlynn was stunning in her Simone Carvalli dress purchased at Tulle Bridal in Andover, MA. She discovered Tulle through a close family friend named Cat, a former manager of a bridal salon in New Jersey.  Kaitlynn had tried on the dress very early in her search. She brought her mother -in – law to the bridal boutique to see the dress and when she walked out wearing it, her mother – in- law started to cry. At that moment, Kaitlynn knew this gown was the one. Michael’s amazing three piece, custom tuxedo was handmade by Christopher Cuozzo of Sprezzatura in Woburn, MA.

Michael and Kaitlynn’s first look was on the breathtaking “Grand Allee” which is a wide stretch of rolling, grassy land cascading all the way down to the ocean. The elegant atmosphere of the estate was a perfect venue for this striking pair. Following their ceremony, which was full of humor, elegance, and breath-taking seaside views, the couple took to new heights for a few intimate shots on the Crane Estate rooftop. Delicious food was by Fireside Catering.

Friends and family celebrated with love and enthusiasm. Join me in congratulating this awesome couple!

Shalin Liu Performance Center Wedding in Rockport, Ma

Penny and Rick’s wedding at the Shalin Liu Performance Center in Rockport, MA was sheer magic. This seaside concert venue was the perfect location for this exuberant couple who sparkle like light on the Atlantic ocean.

Penny and Rick got ready and had their joyous “first look” at the lovely Yankee Clipper Inn just short way down the road located also on the shore of the Atlantic. Then they proceeded to the stage of the Shalin Liu for their ceremony. Just as they were about to be pronounced man and wife, Penny (a fine singer, vocal coach and music director at Endicott College) burst into song. As if this was not enough of a delightful surprise for her groom and guests alike, Penny’s voice was joined one by one, group by group by other exceptional singers in the audience. Gradually, more and more singers added their voices until a “wedding flash mob” was in full swing. What fun, and don’t think there was a dry eye in the house! During their reception this spirited couple performed an elegant first dance to the amazement of their guests. Surely their marriage will be blessed with music and creative surprises. Hearty congratulations, Penny and Rick!!
