Sweet Summer Wedding at the Historic Castle Hill on the Crane Estate

Chelsey & Liang ~ Sweet Summer Wedding at the Historic Castle Hill on the Crane Estate from Heirloom Pictures on Vimeo.

Chelsey and Liang married on a lovely summer day at the historic Great House on the Crane Estate in Ipswich, MA.

The Crane Estate is one of the most absolutely stunning locations to hold an event. From it’s seaside location to the half-mile-long Grand Allée to the rich history of the estate and the beautiful architecture of the restored Great House, Chelsey and Liang knew the moment they visited it was the spot for them. They wanted a romantic and light affair with all the formality of a black-tie evening. Chelsey and Liang decided to have a First Look in the Italian Garden on the estate – one of our most favorite moments to capture for its poignant sweetness.

The rolling lawns of the Grand Allée make for an unbelievable backdrop for a ceremony. With gorgeous weather and panoramic views, Chelsey and Liang said their ‘I do’s’ surrounded by their nearest and dearest.

The reception held under the tent where the newlyweds and guests enjoyed dinner & toasts before packing the dance floor celebrating the night away! Heirloom Pictures is so thrilled to show Chelsey and Liang the highlights from their day. We know they are also excited to share with their family in China who was unable to make this special day. Please enjoy!

Picturesque Seaside Wedding at the gorgeous Crane Estate in Ipswich, MA

Picturesque Seaside Wedding at the gorgeous Crane Estate in Ipswich, MA

Sarah and Mark were married on September 26th, 2014 at the Immaculate Conception Church located in the picturesque seaside town of Newburyport, MA. The couple wanted a location that reflected the classic New England feel and the raw beauty of Cape Ann, where Sarah grew up. For the reception, the couple chose the elegant and historic Great House at the Crane Estate overlooking Ipswich Bay, where Sarah’s family has kept their boat for years. Her family has explored all the marshes, dunes and beaches that make up the Crane Estate, an activity that Mark quickly became a part of when the two met. The Great House had been a dream venue of Sarah’s for a long time and when Mark got the chance to tour it, he quickly agreed!

Though there were so many incredible moments to recall during the ceremony, Mark’s favorite moment was seeing Sarah for the first time from down the aisle. There were little school kids behind her that saw her step off the trolley and couldn’t help themselves but to sneak a peek of her as she entered the church and went down the aisle. Sarah’s favorite moment was arriving at the end of the aisle with her dad (who gave Mark a huge hug) and then getting to finally join arms with Mark and step up to the altar. Sarah and Mark are especially excited to show these highlights to Mark’s grandmother who could not attend the wedding, enjoy!
