Wendy and Lance met in 2010 and she was smitten from the moment she looked into his eyes! They met out one night with a mutual friend and hit it off! But, that night she misplaced her wallet. Ugh! Lance, like a true prince charming, tracked it down and returned it to her....along with a beautiful bouquet of flowers! They've been together ever since!
They planned a truly unique wedding day filled with family, love and fun! Theirs was a forties themed wedding on the luxurious Seaport Elite II, with the city of Boston as the backdrop for their vows. Breathtaking! Preparations on the big day began at the trendy Aloft Boston Seaport Hotel....Wendy got ready in a room (with quite a view!) with her sisters by her side.
Her details were absolutely flawless!
The guys were also getting ready at the Aloft...including their grandson, Joey. Entirely too cute!
And all of the details onboard the yacht were beautifully done...
Upon arrival their guests were not greeted with traditional 'programs' but with "Non-Practical Guides" that they "may or may not find helpful"...so fun! They also each chose an oathing stone to hold while participating in a special tradition during their ceremony.
Two of their sons officiated the ceremony on the top deck, with Boston behind them. Stunning! Lance escorted little Joey down the aisle, while Wendy was escorted by her lovely Aunt Pattie!
They exchanged vows that they wrote themselves.
And rings...and a kiss...and then they were Mr. & Mrs.
The guests enjoyed cocktail hour before their meal.
Konditor Meister created a flawless cake for the occasion. Wendy says that the carrot cake changed her life! :)
The couple took dance lessons at the Arthur Murray Ballroom Dance Studio to design an amazing first dance!
The Seaport Elite II cruised around the harbor for hours while the couple and the their guests danced the night away under the stars!
The evening ended with a dance in honor of Wendy's father. The men in her life danced with her in his place and it was truly moving.
Congratulations Wendy and Lance!!
