kari & jim | wedding at Four Point Sheraton, Norwood, MA

Kari and Jim had a beautiful day for their wedding, and even had a “good luck” rain shower for just a few minutes (or should I say downpour:)! The day started at Kari’s childhood home in our hometown of Foxboro (I say “our” because I am from there too:)! Her parents house and yard are fantastic:)! So nicely done and decorated!
undefinedundefinedundefinedThe girls and her mom helped her get ready with her dress, shoes and details!undefinedundefinedundefinedundefined

I love this picture of her mom using her iPad to take a few pictures of the veil going on! It is such a sign of the times!!undefinedWe had to do a few pictures on the front porch of Kari’s childhood home! Her family put a lot of time and effort into planting, mulching and beautifying the front!undefinedI am personally a big fan of greenery and they had a great area in their backyard that I spotted!undefinedI love these girls!! Kari’s maid-of-honor Casey, is the reason that I photographed Kari’s wedding! After doing maternity and newborn pictures for her and her husband, she passed my name onto Kari! Thanks so much Casey!  This was also my first time having a future bride in a bridal party (usually there are past brides:)! Melissa, on the far right, will be Kari’s sister-in-law in August when she marries Kari’s brother!undefined

undefinedundefinedWhen I arrived at the church, we grabbed some pictures of Jim and his guys!undefined

Towards the end of the ceremony, we could hear the thunder and the pitter patter of the rain! I love these pictures that we got from that moment, and luckily, we only had that one thunderstorm to deal with and it was beautiful by the time we arrived at the Four Point Sheraton!

undefinedWhen we arrived at the Four Point Sheraton, we actually did ALL of our pictures in just about 30 minutes! Bridal party, families and couple! We were super quick and efficient!undefinedundefinedundefined
undefinedundefinedundefinedBefore we did our pictures by the waterfall, I ran in to grab a couple pictures of the place cards…Ironically, I grabbed a shot of one of the people that I knew at the wedding:) Too funny!
undefinedThe Tiffany Ballroom at the Four Point Sheraton is gorgeous and the uplighting truly makes it look magical – LOVE uplighting!!undefinedundefinedLoved this idea that Molly did with the guys!! Everyone did something fun when they entered!undefinedundefinedundefinedMatty gave the blessing – that was SO much more than a blessing…undefinedundefinedKari’s dad, Casey and the two best men ALL gave incredible toasts too! Casey tied all of hers into numbers and it was awesome!undefinedundefined
This is the future Mr. & Mrs. Jacobson and Melissa’s parents! undefinedThe rest of the night was a fun party!undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedThe videographer pulled them for a good-bye message and I followed of course! Glad I did!undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedAfter the final dance, there was one more song that was special to Kari and her mom!undefined



Kari and Jim – Congratulations and thank you so much for choosing me to be your photographer!! I LOVE my Foxboro peeps (even if I was a “bit” older than you girls:)!

Bride/Groom Questions

What was the most memorable moment of your day?
Kari – For me it was walking down the isle with my Dad, and looking at Jimmy the whole time! Then when my Dad shook Jimmy’s hand at the alter and turned to give me a kiss.
Jimmy- Watching Kari come down the isle, and saying our vows.
What was your favorite detail?
The Cake Topper that we had made to look like us!
Any advice for future brides/grooms?
Just relax and let things happen that day… all the planning is over and now you just have to sit back and let it all happen and fall into place.  It was amazing watching everything we had planned and envisioned finally come to life.
Funniest memory from your wedding day?
Our friend’s speeches!  They were hysterical, creative, and so sincere!
If you could do it all over, would you change anything?
No everything was perfect, except we wished we had more time to talk with each guest! The night flew by!
Where did you go on your honeymoon?
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico! It was unbelievable!
