Marybeth and Tyler are MARRIED!! Yup! MARRIED!! There two had such a beautiful and intimate wedding this past Saturday at Tylers childhood home! It may not have been the wedding they were originally planning for, but it was still so perfect and so beautiful! Marybeth and Tyler made the difficult decision of only having their immediate families, Wedding Party and Vendors at their celebration. Their friends and extended families watched their wedding ceremony via live stream. Even though they could not be there in person, they were celebrating with them in spirit online! Thank goodness for all of these social outlets!

Due to Covid-19, Marybeth and Tyler changed their plans of having their wedding take place in Princeton, MA. The morning started with the girls getting ready in their adorable condo in Portsmouth, NH and the guys getting ready at the AC Hotel by Marriott, Portsmouth. Their first look was at Prescott Park and it was absolutely gorgeous! The weather leading up to their day was hit or miss with the rain, and humid! They had an amazing sunny day, it was hot, but there was sun and when the breeze came through, it was nice! Their photos have a romantic glow about them which makes me so happy!

A crazy thing to think about is,  they will look back on their wedding day 50 years from now and remember that even in the midst of a pandemic, their love was stronger. When they go to visit their parents back at the home where they said their I do’s, they will think about this day. The joy, the stress, the sweat and tears. What an amazing memory they will add to the many memories they’ve shared at this home. All they wanted was to get married, and they made it happen, even in the face of many obstacles. I don’t know about you, but I find all of that incredibly romantic! And speaking of romantic, Tyler planned the sweetest surprise for Marybeth! While they agreed not to get gifts for each other, Tyler surprised Marybeth with a beautiful bracelet for her to wear on their wedding day! It was the perfect way to start their wedding day when she opened this gift just before getting ready. I loved when they saw each other for the first time and he took her hand to see the bracelet on her! It was a special moment.

Marybeth and Tyler, Wow, what a year you guys had! I am so happy that in the end, everything worked out and you guys are now Mr. and Mrs. Joosten! I am so thankful for you both and so honored that you chose me to be your photographer. I loved you guys when I met you for the first time during your engagement session, and I still love you both now! Speaking of love… Here are just some of the photos I LOVED from this day, and I hope you will love them too! Enjoy getting to relive your wedding day through this blog and soon, I hope that you will get to see all of your virtual guests and give them big hugs!
