An abundance of pink blossoms with a dash of Revolutionary history garnished with a choreographed first dance!
Nunzio & Tori were married on the last weekend of April. Although the forecast called for showers, the rain decided to hold out for the sake of their gorgeous first look moment and their portraits that followed soon after. You can imagine how grateful we were! Despite the chill in the air, the high energy of this wedding party and deep love this couple shares kept us feeling warm!
This was a day with many first looks - three to be exact! Each moment was just as delightful and joyful to witness as the next.

Their ceremony was short and sweet due in part to reading their vows on hand written letters exchanged in their hotel rooms before their first look. Tori, being the sincere, sweet, kind and beautifully emotional person that she is, read hers before she put her make-up on. Once you scroll down to see the photos you’ll see how wise of a choice that was. She was able to completely be in the moment and soak up every thoughtful word he put to paper. Now she only had a few happy tears left to shed at the first look, right? Isn’t that how it works? Haha!
Shannon, one of our dear friends and 2018 Eisley Bride, and her team at Concord’s Colonial Inn were incredible to work with. They anticipated every need that could have ever been thought of for the guests and the couple while ensuring the night ran smoothly and seamlessly. A coordinator like that makes all the difference in how excellent your night will be! All day we all kept mentioning how easy, calm, and collected the whole event was. Truly exceptional service!
Our entire experience with Nunzio and Tori has been the literal best. George and Nunzio go way back to their music playing days, so they had quite the head start on getting to know each other for the wedding! In the last two-ish years that we’ve been walking through this engagement season with them, they’ve even made an impression on Emmy (our four year old!)! Last November we went out for breakfast with them on one of our first free weekends of our wedding season. Emmy gifted them a painted shell (we still don’t even know why she had one at the ready? We genuinely think she planned this out) and they still have it! That’s just the kind of people they are. The top tier of their wedding cake was gluten free so Tori and I could enjoy it! Like, really? Really? Yes, really. Thoughtful of others on even her wedding day! After their coverage time had ended, we were packing our camera bags and I looked up to see Nunzio and Tori walking over with our cocktail of choice in their hands. Too much. They are too much <3 We are so lucky to have couples like this.
