Jill & Ezra post ceremony smooch near Hingham harbor.
Jill and Ezra had their wedding ceremony at the Old Ship Metting House in downtown Hingham and then celebrated their reception with hundreds of guests under a gorgeous tent at Jill’s parent’s historical home just around the corner. What a truly great way to spend your wedding day/night complete with Ezra singing a beautiful song he wrote for their marriage.

Now downtown for some photos.
First stop something beachy near the harbor.
Toes in the sand.
It looks deserted but there was several beach regulars we carefully avoided–especially the old man in the Speedo.

What wedding isn’t complete without bubbles–perfect kid favor.
Passionate speeches from the best of men…
And Jill’s brothers provided the laughs.
Plus the “best” girl.
Some traditions needed to be performed…
and more traditions got everyone involved.
Then is was just party time–or more traditions as Ezra’s Dad celebrated to “YMCA”.
Dancing with grandparents.
Bridesmaids sang with the band – Men in Black
More passionate speeches this time utilizing modern technology.
Ezra and his old bandmates played a crowd favorite.
And the crowd went nuts.
Really nuts–I don’t even know what dance this is.
Mom and Dad share some love on the dance floor.

They concluded the night with a song written especially for their marriage.
Many thanks to my stellar second cameraman, Chris Gagne, Men in Black for providing the tunes, East Meets West Catering and anyone I missed; this was a grand affair.
