These High School Sweethearts Tied the Knot in a Chic Romantic Ipswich Wedding at The Crane Estate

September 18, 2019 | brooke

We love a good high school sweetheart story! After years of dating, Ellen and Anthony tied the knot with a traditional, elegant wedding and reception at The Crane Estate in Ipswich, Massachusetts! We love how Ellen’s sophisticated look transitions beautifully through every part of the day. Her fabulous floral applique Berta gown and soft waves created by Lume Salon were perfectly fitting for their vibe. We can’t wait for you to see Meredith McCarthy’s floral masterpieces and timeless photographs by Emily Delamater Photography who brilliantly captured every detail these two lovebirds’ romantic day!

The Couple:

Ellen & Anthony

The Wedding:

The Crane Estate, Ipswich, Massachusetts

The moment that we said “I do” was my favorite part of the day. Anthony and I met in high school and had been together for almost ten years when we got married, so it was an incredible feeling to take that next step and officially become family. We both wrote our own vows and my uncle officiated the wedding, which felt special because he had seen our relationship grow over the years.

We fell in love with The Crane Estate because of the amazing views and how private it felt to have the entire estate just for our guests.

Working with Emily and her husband Matt was wonderful! They both had such calm energy, which helped us relax and feel comfortable with them. We were very lucky to work with all of our vendors, but I would love to give a special shout out to our photographers, videographer, and band! Our band was a huge hit and got everyone out on the dance floor.
