Cover Girl Beauty: Jillian & Michael, Gloucester, Mass.

The cars were just a lucky addition as we made our way to a spot along Gloucester's rocky shoreline.

Jillian and Michael are one of those couples with movie star looks and down-to-Earth personalities reminiscent of star quarterbacks and Brazilian supermodels. We had the perfect day starting with the girls getting ready at a rented beach house in Gloucester and then the ceremony and reception at the Elk’s at Bass Rocks.

When I first met them many months ago Jillian was on the cover of the Improper Bostonian as one of Boston’s elite bartenders. Our engagement session yielded some amazingly candid shots and I knew right away this was going to be a fun couple to photograph on their wedding day as they were willing to go the extra mile.

Getting ready takes a village at times.

The finished look is stunning.

Taking a big chance, Jillian has puppies swimming through her wedding gown before the ceremony.

A surprise ending capped our great day!
