The Lyman Estate and taking photos

A very small country style wedding yesterday at The Lyman Estate in Waltham.

We've done weddings here before, but I never took photos of the grounds or interior because we're always in a rush to set up.  So, yesterday I spent some time in the house photographing details, but I still felt pressure to leave and the photos are more 'record' than nice pictures.  I need a lot more practice with my camera!

Some Lyman from the 19th c. (no indication on the painting)

I believe this is Theodore Lyman

And his sweet looking wife - love the cap.

A bow front chest in the oval room .This room and the ballroom have never been changed during several renovations of the house.  The portraits above are in the oval room too.

The bride's bouquet.

The ballroom set up for dinner.

I didn't think I'd like the blue and gold but after seeing the room, and bow front chest, it's perfect. Love the portaits of course. I want that columned structure for a folly in my side yard. What a place!

I had no idea there was such a place in Waltham! I'm glad they had nice weather. I love the bride's bouquet.
