This beautiful wedding put such a smile on my face. The beach, the beautiful couple and the pure joy on their faces. It inspired me so much – I cannot WAIT until weddings are back in swing again. I feel the first round will see a lot of outdoor weddings since there is more ways to keep it safe and socially distant. If you’re daydreaming about a beachside wedding in your future, this is a good one to pin.
“Tori and Max have a certain magic about them as a couple – they make you feel alive and contagiously happy when you are around them,” said The Gowans Photography “They are warm and kind, and the sheer blissfulness between them is something that anyone could fall in love with. Their wedding day, though, started as most brides would dread: with high, gusty winds moving across the Cape and weather reports toeing the line between “Definite Nor’Easter” and “Possible Hurricane.”
“With inclement weather threatening the picturesque Cape Cod beach ceremony Tori & Max had dreamed of, planners and photographers began making “Plan B” as the morning progressed and bridesmaids smiled and chattered, keeping everyone’s spirits up. As dresses were zipped and cars were loaded with dapper wedding party members headed to The Captain Linnell House in Orleans, the wind shifted, the rain stopped, and the skies suddenly cleared. When the time came for Tori to walk down the sandy aisle on Skaket Beach with Max waiting at the other end, a “hurricane wedding” had somehow become a glorious, sunny September Saturday on the Cape. The two were married by the sea, and at sunset, they ran hand-in-hand down the beach as the birds circled them and the sun dipped below the horizon. These two had always wanted to make sure they saw the sunset on their wedding day, and the universe delivered, proving that sometimes all you have to do is wait out the storm.”
