Springtime Love and Puppy Dog Kisses – By Wedding Expert Nancy Gorman


Springtime Love and Puppy Dog Kisses at Turner Hill Mansion

Written by Nancy Gorman of Makeup By Nancy 

Love was in the air this past June at the Turner Hill Mansion in Ipswich, MA. There were blue skies, bright smiles, and enough puppy dog kisses for everyone’s delight.

Catherine & Jeff scored a beautiful day to celebrate their happily ever after. Along with the blue skies, the bridal party’s blue gowns and suits perfectly complemented a wonderful day and lovely family.

First, was the super adorable dog who accompanied the couple to the wedding, managed by her handler Nicole of Pawfect for You. The photos with the bride and groom and this precious pooch are priceless.

MKD Photography captured this beautiful wedding so perfectly that I could feel the warm air just looking through the photos. Instantly I felt like I was there, laughing and reminiscing with this wonderful family. The videographer for the day was McElroy Weddings.

I first met this family several years back when the bride’s sister got married – I’ve never been able to forget this family’s gorgeous blue eyes. It was so nice to spend the day with them again. Lauren, with Beauty by LM, was the hairstylist for the day who worked alongside me in the bright and spacious Butler House. Located right on the property, it was so easy for the bridal party to get ready and move to the venue. The tasteful and timeless flowers by Lilac and Lily brought the blue color-scheme together and were irresistible to the eye.

Marrero Events was brought on as the couple’s coordinator, and as expected, the entire evening flowed like a well-oiled machine. To help keep the evening jumping, First Class Weddings DJ Mark Mactarrgart had the place on their feet all night long. Vinewood Caterers provided the dinner that looked absolutely yummy! Mouths were watering just looking through the photos!

The bride’s gown and her bridal party dresses were all from BHLDN, perfectly coordinating the groomsmen’s JoS A Bank suits. The handsome groom’s suit was from Banana Republic. The entire wedding party complimented each other so well! This bride and groom have great taste!

Thinking of a June wedding here in the Seacoast area of New England? There are countless options for your big day! Hopefully, Catherine and Jeff’s big day can inspire your planning!
