Wedding Week, Part 3: Our Big Day!

September 12, 2014 - Lindsay & Nick - 323

It’s hard to believe that, after counting down for nearly a year, our wedding day is now two weeks behind us. It feels like it was yesterday, and I’m sure it’ll be a while before the overwhelming feelings of love and excitement from that day subside.

We picked Ceia Kitchen & Bar, a gorgeous restaurant in the heart of downtown Newburyport, for our venue. We chose Ceia not only because the space itself is beautiful—brick walls, iron chandeliers, copper tabletops, polished wood floors—but because its food, wine, chefs, staff, and service are the best in the area. We knew it would be a special experience for our guests. Having our wedding at Ceia meant having the best of both worlds—a sophisticated, city-caliber restaurant in the heart of a charming small town. My husband and I each grew up in somewhat small places, and between us, we’ve lived in Boston, New York City, Los Angeles, and Chicago, among other places, so it was a fitting scenario.

While the guys and all of our guests relaxed and spent the day around town, I started it off with a mani/pedi with two of my best girlfriends (the sweet ladies at the shop surprised us with mimosas and, oddly enough for a 9:30 a.m. appointment, plates of tortilla chips, dip, and salsa, but, hey!—mimosas!) and continued on to hair and makeup at Interlocks and lunch at Revitalive with my mom and my mother-in-law. From there, it was back to our inn to get dressed and take a few last deep breaths before things got fully under way. One of my favorite moments from the night was the short walk to the restaurant from our inn with my parents (my groom and my brother made the walk over together ahead of us), and then making my way into the restaurant and spotting my beaming soon-to-be-husband at the back of the room. I don’t remember every single moment of our ceremony clearly—to say I was nervous would be a huge understatement—but what I do remember of the day is the breathtaking feeling of love that emanated from my husband, our families, and our friends, and—as you can see in these pictures, taken by our friend and photographer Doug Levy—the sheer joy that lasted long after the last glass of champagne had been drunk. Cheers!
