Sondra + Erik: The Commons 1854 in Topsfield

Very late afternoon sun is around just long enough.

Not two weeks prior to Sondra and Erik’s wedding I tweaked my back very badly while on a trail run in Groton. Lucky for me Erik runs a physical therapy business, Elite Physical Therapy. I go by to drop off a 30×40 canvas and he sets me up with some icy stimulation for my lower back. I met Sondra’s Dad in there as well getting treatment so he can get back at his mountain biking. Two weeks later we were both good as new and ready to go.

We made the most out of the short day and The Commons 1854 in Topsfield provided an incredible backdrop for the evening ceremony and reception. Eye 2 Eye provided the entertainment that kept the party hoppin’. The delicious cake was made by Eat Cake! from Newburyport and the flowers by Lotus Designs.  And still no back pain!

Honey from Lotus Designs in Boston created a perfect bouquet to accent our bride.
