Becca and Troy’s Chequessett Club wedding in Wellfleet, MA, centered around their love of the beach!
We started the day with a first look at their favorite beach in Brewster, MA. Low tide is incredibly meaningful to them, so we planned the day around the tide chart. I also have a love of the beach and low tide. Photographing in bare feet surrounded by smooth sand is always a special treat.
Becca and Troy’s wedding day brought sun and haze, creating a dreamy backdrop at their favorite place.

Becky and Troy requested family photos at their favorite Brewster beach. In order to capture this special request and flattering light for family photos we came up with a plan. Casual group photographs on the beach, to honor that special place. We also carved out additional time for more formal groups a little later in the day. The best of both worlds!
Their Chequessett Club wedding ceremony took place on the sand above the beach, between their tent set meticulously for dinner and the boathouse, ready for an evening of dancing.
Laurel from Cape Cod Celebrations made sure every detail was absolutely perfect. Becky and Troy had so many personal touches. Their guestbook consisted of postcards for each guest to write on. The postcards were given to a family member to mail to the newlyweds throughout their first year. Instead of table numbers, tables were named after the places the two had traveled together. A cute memory accompanied each one. The notes from Becky’s fourth grade class with marriage advice was my personal favorite!
The cocktail hour took place in the boathouse, after which guests moved back across the sand to dinner under the tent and back to the boathouse for dancing. This location has incredible space to customize! A lounge area was designed for the evening, complete with wood benches, patio lights, and games to play.
After dinner, we snuck back to the beach for some more photos of the the couple. We were looking for sunset, but instead got a soft, dreamy fog that was just as beautiful.
I really enjoy breaking up portrait time with my couples, as we did today. They ended up with a collection of images on their favorite beach at noon, a few images under umbrellas before cocktail hour, and this set below after dinner. It’s so lovely to have a wide variety of light and energy in your final image collection. When you put these all together in an album, the story of the day comes through.
After dinner, guests got a fun surprise when an ice cream truck pulled up right outside the boathouse. Kids and adults gathered around the special lounge area, complete with patio lights, to take a break from dancing and enjoy a sweet treat.
Thanks Becky and Troy for inviting me to be a part of your Chequessett Yacht and Country Club wedding!
