Ever since she was a little girl, Catherine had a dream of being married in a castle.  So when she discovered Hammond Castle in Gloucester, MA, there was no place else for her wedding.  In fact, I think it’s safe to say that with their amazing venue, and even more amazing attire, Cat and Jack went medieval on their wedding day.  And I was lucky enough to be invited to capture it all!

I arrived at the castle just before the wedding party, so they weren’t there to see my jaw drop.  But soon the place was abuzz with activity, just like a castle would have been 1000 years ago, I’d imagine, when all of the castle attendants prepared for a royal dinner.  Helpers were everywhere, setting up tables and chairs in the great hall, preparing the food and drink stations, setting up the lawn for the marriage ceremony…Jack in the thick of it, making sure everything was just right for his new bride to be, while she was tucked away in the bridal suite preparing herself for her betrothed.  Once he was assured that everything was under control, Jack slipped away to dress in his kingly finery, and then they were read to do a little courting in the courtyard before the official ceremony began.

In the meantime, the guests had gathered in the lovely castle garden overlooking the ocean.  Once everyone was seated, the music changed, and The wedding pary descended the beautiful stone staircase to the lawn.  In front of a kingly view, Cat and Jack made their vows to one another, and sealed it with a sunset kiss.  Their first act as the king and queen of their newly formed family was to walk through the property gardens for a few moments alone together, before heading inside to preside over a feast worthy of King Arthur himself!

With a special shout out to Bey from Tasks@Bey for planning another amazing event!
