Chequessett Yacht Country Club Wedding

Grace and Sean came all the way from California to be married at the Chequesett Yacht and Country Club.  Chequessett Yacht club is one of those unique venues on the cape that is on the water, and provides a venue right on the beach.  A hard to find venue on the Cape believe it or not.  Wouldn’t you know, on the last wedding of my season, it rained.  I had a bit of bad luck this year with weddings and weather.  The days it didn’t rain, it was bitter cold, and on the none bitter cold, it was windy.  We took it all in stride and my couples never once complained.  What are you going to do when you can’t control it?    The weather never bothers me especially if the couples agree to go out and play in the rain.  Grace and Sean did just that and we got some fabulous photos.  The wedding coordinator was Olivia From Cape Cod Celebrations.
Desserts were provided by Local Scoops  They brought these amazing smelling crepes to the Chequesett Boat house instead of your traditional wedding cake.

Beach wedding details

I absolutely love the jewelry for this wedding.  It was simple and elegant.  It matched the beach theme and colors of the day.

I absolutely love this image and the way the shoes. They got married in a tiny Inn in Wellfleet and then drove over to the Chequessett to get married.    She had visions of these shoes…

Cape Cod Wedding at Chequessett

Instead, she ended up in these Hunter red rain boots which was just so cute!  I mean, you never really think of wedding day and rain boots but she made them ROCK.  They were her sisters and she threw them on and never thought about it for the rest of the day.  Love brides that just roll with it!

The groom was getting ready at another location, so my second shooter captured him while I focused on the girls.

Then we headed over to the yacht club and started photographing the details.  I LOVE this seating chart.  It’s so rustic and Cape Cod feeling.

The girls in the doors of the boathouse of the Chequessett Yacht Club.  They have renovated the inside and added the little twinkle lights.  It adds a nice touch when it’s raining, and you have limited places to bring the girls.

The dining room at the Country Club.  Even in the rain, it’s beautiful.

The bride and groom portraits were so much fun. They were such troopers! They were willing to go out sans umbrella and get some photos.  It made by day because I knew we could rock the portraits if they just gave me five minutes.

Even in the rain, on a cold New England day the beach is stunning.

Love the color of this door, it brings some life into the photo without any directional light to work with.

A sweet kiss under the umbrella after getting married.

I love this photo of the two of them under the umbrella in the rain.  It didn’t matter to them that it rained.

Their speeches were so funny.  I can’t do them justice by talking about the speeches but they have some funny friends!

Crepes by Local Scoops, they looked amazing!
