As fairy tale weddings go, there was a beautiful princess, a handsome prince and a bit of magic in the air!
Ballymeade Wedding on Cape Cod
The mother of the bride knows weddings. Having been involved in well over a thousand of them over the years Judy Fligg, owner of “All About Flowers” one of Cape Cod’s most prominent floral designers definitely knows weddings!
So it wasn’t all that surprising that this MOB was a little hands-on for her beautiful daughter Brenna’s wedding at the Ballymeade Country Club on Saturday. But it wasn’t all about the flowers for this wedding, although there were lots and lots of them, it was all about Brenna & her future husband Ross.
You could clearly see this couple adored each other, but the affection didn’t stop there with Brenna & Ross’s family and friends also sharing much love with this great couple.
Also contributing to the great success of this beautiful wedding was Ballymeade’s function manager Christine Antoine, Wedding Planner Laurel Hartman, of course Mom’s exquisite flowers and design, amazing dinner and service by Treats Caterers, the wonderful cake and other goodies by Lisa Raffael of Delicious Deserts, hair & make-up by Kelly Colon & Kara McDonald and last but not least DJ Keith Lemire rocking the B-Meade making this wedding one of the best of the best.
Congratulations Brenna & Ross, here’s hoping the party lasts forever!

The lovely ceremony was celebrated by Faith Lavender accompanied by the heavenly melodies of Katie Lynch Koglin making this simple wedding a very beautiful memory for the new bride & groom.

Congratulations Deb & Bill!
A Cape Cod Wedding at New Seabury Country Club
Helen and I really enjoyed the beautiful wedding of Ashley & Patrick at the New Seabury Country Club on Saturday. The weather was just about as good as it gets in mid-April which made it so nice to be able to enjoy all the picture-taking outdoors and even down to the beach.
But it wasn’t the weather that made this wedding beautiful, it was the people. You can always tell when a couple is in love by how much they smile and this couple just never stopped!! And neither did their friends and family or us for that matter!
It was also a pleasure to spend some time with Ashley’s Mom Ann once again. Just like old times…. only this day was so much better!
Bride & Groom: Ashley & Patrick
Venue: Wilma & Jennifer at New Seabury Country Club
Cake: Lisa at Delicious Desserts
DJ & Uplighting Danny Walsh
Photography & Video: Frank & Helen Coombs
Flowers: Karen at Lilacs
What an amazing Cape Cod Glamour Photography Session we had with Cerise on Saturday evening! The very beautiful and talented Cerise Bynoe is a well known singer and a rising star here on Cape Cod and we were so thrilled to spend an evening taking some promotional photography for her!
This session was so much fun for us because although we had discussed the style she was looking for in advance, the chilly temperatures that evening forced us to improvise most of the session to indoor locations on the fly. This made for a very interesting photo session as we cruised up and down Main Street in Hyannis looking for bars and restaurants willing to let us jump in for a few minutes to use their facilities before the Saturday evening crowd shuffled in.
It was so cool that we were welcomed in to every location we inquired and got some wonderful spontaneous photography at every turn!
Special thanks to the management and staff at Embargo, The British Beer Company, The 586 and Sass on Main Street for their generosity. We will be sure to return the favor in food and beverage consumption in the upcoming summer months for sure! But an extra special thanks to Cerise Bynoe for allowing us to spend an evening just having a blast with you! We can’t wait to tell everyone that we knew you when…..!!
Cape Cod Fashion Show to Benefit WE CAN
Helen and I were very happy to have been a part of The Spring Fashion Show and Pop-up Shopping Event to benefit the WE CAN organization at the Cape Cinema in Dennis Thursday evening.
Over 150 folks turned out to see some very chic fashion styles provided by several of Cape Cod’s finest fashion boutiques and modeled by some very beautiful local ladies. Organized by Master of Ceremonies Amanda Converse of the brand new Cape Cod fashion magazine The Current Quarterly, this fun show also opened with musical guests The Bob Hayes Trio featuring Cerise, and later the cool sounds of DJ Sinetti who provided the back beat to the runway show.
Immediately after the show the boutiques set up “POP-UP” store fronts to entice the crowd with the latest in cool Cape Cod fashion that will no doubt be seen this spring and summer from Buzzards Bay to Provincetown.
Congratulations Amanda Converse for all of your hard work on this wonderful benefit to help raise over $2500 to WE CAN, an organization Helen and I just love!
Retro Fashion Photography Cape Cod Style
Helen and I are excited that the April edition of Cape Cod Magazine is beginning to filter out to subscribers (and soon the news stands) and that our retro fashion project has finally come to fruition!
Our feature is called “Glamour of Another Era” and Helen and I couldn’t be more thrilled to see that it received a 10 page spread in their beautiful magazine!
We would love to thank Cape Cod Magazine and all the contributors who provided the wonderful fashion, accessories, beautiful locations and props needed to recreate these images and especially the ladies who modeled for our project. All of our models were local personalities with no professional modeling experience but each of you nailed the task better than a pro!
I am told copies of the new edition have made their way to many subscribers already, but it will not officially hit the news stands until Thursday or Friday. For those of you that can not wait, we know that there are copies available now at the Barnes & Noble Book Store at the Cape Cod Mall.
To see more of our retro project please visit our fashion website at: www.rockthedress.net / Retro Rock

Helen and I really enjoyed our visit to the newly renovated Belfry Inne & Bistro this weekend! Located in the famous historic district of Sandwich, this former Catholic church is now home to exceptional bistro style dining, a Cape Cod Wedding or other event and features luxurious lodging accommodations on property as well!
Appointed with magnificent stained glass at every turn, an evening out to the Belfry Inn turns a simple night out into a unique experience!
If you are looking for an evening of fine dining and accommodations that introduces 17th century Sandwich to the 21′st, then you need revisit the Belfry!
Thank you to Owner Christopher Wilson, Executive chef Benjamin Porter and Event Coordinator Megan Peno for the fun invitation!
Love was in the the air for Emily & Kyle for a Valentine’s Weekend Cape Cod Wedding at the Coonamessett Inn! Although the weather was what you would expect in February on Cape Cod, the warm confines of the Coonamessett Inn with the fireplace blazing and DJ Danny Walsh rocking it kept this party hot!!
Congratulations Emily & Kyle!
What A beautiful day it was for Susan & Kevin’s Coonamessett Inn Wedding! A really fun event with more than a few surprises! One big surprise was how beautiful the weather was on a mid-November day. Helen & I loved that our couple wanted their photography done in advance of the ceremony at Nobska Lighthouse and down at the beach. This allowed us to get some awesome Cape Cod photography that will always remind them what a spectacular day it was! Another big surprise? Well how about 16 members of the Massachusetts State Police Pipes and Drums to play the bride into her ceremony? That was a WOW moment for everyone!! One thing that was not surprising was all the love and affection everyone in attendance showed Susan & Kevin. And of course special thanks to the Jim, Brad, Betty, Mike and the rest of the gang for making this a Coonamessett Inn wedding to remember!!
Congratulations Susan & Kevin
