Swing dancing to Michael Buble? Blue dancing shoes? A Capella serenading?  My last wedding of 2018 was one to remember...
These two started their love story at the historic Hillsdale College & began their new lives together at the Lyman Estate in Waltham, Mass, surrounded by friends and family.
Enjoy the gallery!

Jonathan & Elena chose to do a first look which makes my heart so happy!! They were able to take advantage of this marvelous sunny day and maximize their time together! How sweet this moment was.

The Lyman Estate, also known as “the Vale,” is a National Historic Landmark and one of the finest U.S. examples of a country estate. Its architectural features include an elegant ballroom and graceful oval parlor, both pristine examples of Federal design.
The said ballroom was the location for the ceremony, during which the entire bridal party and guest group sang a beautiful, echoing rendition of the old hymn 'Be Thou My Vision.'  I had chills!
Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light
Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one
Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise
Thou mine Inheritance, now and always
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart
High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art
High King of Heaven, my victory won
May I reach Heaven’s joys, O bright Heav’n’s Sun
Heart of my own heart, whate’er befall
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all

Some just-married introductions and swing dancing took place on the Veranda during golden hour- how fun are Elena's blue dancing shoes?!
We of course had to follow that up with some glowy bride and groom portraits to show off that new bling.
Dinner, cake, parent dances and very classic swing dancing followed. I'm pretty sure every guest knew how to swing dance and it was so.cute. The best part? Jonathan's mens chorus serenaded Elena to 'kiss the girl' from The Little Mermaid. Sha la la la. 
Congrats, Elena & Jonathan- you're incredible!
