May Wedding Ceremony and Reception at the Commons 1854

May is an ideal month for an outdoor garden wedding ceremony on Boston's North Shore.  Valarie and Brian's May wedding's boasted beautiful weather with the perfect cloud coverage for photos, fully bloomed peonies and a gorgeous bride and groom.

Gorgeous outdoor photo of a May wedding in Topsfield, MA at the Commons 1854.

The getting ready photos... Valarie's design was meticulous and it showed.  Just look at this gorgeous dress. 

This wedding dress was stunning!  The Wedding Reception decor seemed to be planned around the gown.    

With all of her bridesmaids help, this beautiful bride is dressed and ready for the first look in the Commons 1854's bridal suite.

Just look at this stunning bride!!!!!!!!!!!

The luxurious vintage curtains make for the perfect backdrop to accent Valarie's wedding gowns train. 

The chaise lounge!

 Valarie couldn't be more exciting about the first look, check out this sneak peak photo prior to the bride and groom seeing each other for the first time on their wedding day.  The Commons 1854 has great places for the formal photos before and after the wedding ceremony.  Below (on the right)  is a shot that Beniot - McCarthy photography invented.  

The first look!

The gorgeous classic New England ceremony site with towering Oak trees! 

 And they were pronounced husband and wife!!!!

Let the wedding reception begin!!!

This savvy bride was all about the details with small touches like blackberries in the sparkling pink Rosé
 to start off the reception and cappuccinos with a mocha heart as a sweet treat at the end.

The Candy Station matched the pink peonies!

   Valarie and Brian are "True love sweethearts" so this bride found it more than fitting to incorporate it into her  candy station.  

The Black Menu Card was the ideal color pairing for this formal plated meal for Valarie and Brian's wedding reception at the Commons 1854.  Her wedding guest tables were adorned with crystals and beautiful tall and short centerpieces provided by Petals of Peabody, MA.

The monogram on the menu card matches the gift box and candy station signs!

Gorgeous Orchids in the trumpet vases!!!!

The Wedding Cake with a monogram topper!

The Balcony made a perfect lounge area for their Wedding Reception and a great vantage point for the photography of this bride and grooms first dance.
