Karen and Pat's day will go down as the hottest of the year for us! The two of them eloped in Kauai, Hawaii back in February with Karen planning the whole elopement in just one week! They spent two weeks island hopping then came back to plan a celebration with family and friends.
Molly and Dhruve made our jobs very easy on their wedding day - there aren't enough great things to say about this wedding! They had both a Jewish and a Hindu ceremony over the course of two days. The first evening was a more informal Jewish ceremony with their closest family and friends at Molly's house in Needham. The next day was their extravagant Indian wedding at Elm Bank in Wellesley. The unique combination of both cultures and their love for one made their wedding truly unforgettable.
Leia and Matt had their first date in the Seaport where they went to Legal Test Kitchen for dinner, followed by the Atlantic Beer Garden for drinks. Matt wanted to surprise Leia by setting up his proposal by mimicking their date. After the dinner, he proposed to her on a bridge where he had first put his arm around her when she was cold. They then headed to the Atlantic Beer Garden where BearFight was playing and to Leia's surprise, all their family and friends were waiting for them!
Emily and Stephen began the process thinking that they would elope or have an intimate wedding at city hall. In the end they realized that they both wanted to share the day with their closest family and friends, so they opted to host something a bit more traditional but still relaxed and fun. They chose La Brasa because the food, drink, and atmosphere aligned with the non-traditional vibe they were hoping to achieve for their wedding. They got lucky with a perfect sunny day as a sign of things to come!
Kaitlyn and Dana were such a sweet couple! Being high-school sweethearts their love for one another was special, which made photographing them a true joy. Despite the heat wave that came in and the chance of thundershowers that never happened, it didn't stop Kaitlyn, Dana or their wedding party from enjoying the day.
VanNhi and Pierre's wedding was a party from the start! The energy from the bridal party all the way through till dancing they kept us moving on our feet. They had their first look, ceremony and reception all at the Danversport Yacht Club. There were thunderstorms in the forecast but they held off long enough for them to have their touching ceremony outside overlooking the harbor. The way Pierre looked at VanNhi was inspiring, their love for one another is unconditional.
Breezy and Tim's wedding day couldn't have been more perfect! Not a cloud in the sky and a light breeze coming off the ocean. Breezy and Tim go to their cape beach house almost every weekend to get away from the city. As a child Breezy's grandmother used to take Breezy to the beach when she was a little girl, so it holds true sentimental value to her. The wedding took place at the Wychmere beach club right on the coast. During the ceremony, there was hardly a dry eye. You could tell Breezy and Tim were beyond excited they picked a venue that was to close to their hearts and got to spend the day with so many close friends and family.
Michelle and Jackie met at crew many years ago, which was where they developed a deep friendship and fell in love. Some of Jackie's favorite memories were spent on the dock in Edgartown on her family's estate. It was only natural that they would decided to get married there surrounded by their beloved family and friends. They began getting ready at separate houses and went to the Edgartown Lighthouse for their first look. They popped a bottle of champagne for a quick sip on the beach and then they went up to the top of the lighthouse for some quick photos overlooking the harbor.
Their wedding took place at the gorgeous Willowdale Estate is in the middle of a state forest. Kim's idea was to incorporate simplicity in their decorations to let nature shine through with a bohemian feel. Kim comes from a crafty family and always knew she wanted to plan the small details on her wedding day. Their entire day was filled with surrounding love from family and friends. Despite the light showers, it didn't put a damper on the day at all. Towards the end of day we got to sneak out for a beautiful sunset. What a relaxed and beautiful day to remember forever!
I met Jessica and Sal on a warm sunny afternoon at the Acton Arboretum. I had never been there before and was so surprised to find such a hidden paradise! Sal is originally from Acton so it was a spot he knew well. We took their sprightly dog, Mia, on a walk around the park. She was interested in everything besides the camera but that didn't matter as she had a great time being outdoors exploring. We continued around the winding paths, discovering the spring flowers and woods while the sun was setting perfectly, casting a golden glow. I can't wait to be a part of their wedding this fall at the Beauport in Gloucester!
Kiley and Sean had a dream wedding in Marblehead, one of the most picturesque towns in New England. They began getting ready with a pop of champagne and laughs all around. Sean saw Kiley for the first time in her dress as she was walking down the aisle and silently broke down with emotion. The smile as he looked at her was truly unforgettable. Their sweet ceremony ended with a kiss then a ribbon sendoff. They were driven by an antique Rolls Royce over to the dock, where they boarded a boat to bring them to the Corinthian Yacht Club.
I met Margaret and Colin on a picture perfect day in the Boston Common gardens. The sun was shining, the flowers were in bloom and we had the perfect afternoon to explore! We walked around the swan pond and then made our way over to the iconic Acorn street. After a few photos on the cobblestones, we headed over to the esplanade to catch the last part of the beautiful sunset over the water.
Sakshi & Suman first met in orientation week during their residency program and their quick friendship turned into a great relationship! Their parents were in town and they had planned a picnic that morning at a park stretching along the Niagara River - a secret retreat of theirs. Suman arranged it so that they would arrive ahead of their parents with breakfast. He then surprised Sakshi with a proposal and a ring, carefully stashed away in his pocket.
The wedding day began getting ready at a hotel with bubbles, both the alcoholic and the soapy kind. It continued as we made our way to the church, where we were greeted by a bagpiper in full Scottish garb. Their sweet ceremony included a gasp of joy from Joe as he saw her walk down the aisle along with a few happy tears from Emily. After the ceremony, we were off to Gibbet Hill!
A truly special moment happened when a young buck and a doe appeared out of the woods. We were walking in a shaded area right before the sun went down when they silently crossed our path. The buck wasn't afraid and even gave me the chance to get a couple closeup shots looking right at the camera! What an unforgettable evening with one of the best sunsets I've seen in ages. Spring is finally here in Boston and I for one couldn't be happier!
This gorgeous wedding took place at the Beauport Hotel in Gloucester on a chilly spring day. The girls got ready in their suite passing around champagne and dancing around. The guys were the least serious group we've seen in awhile, always joking around and having a great time. Ariel and Alex saw each other as she walked down the aisle of St. Anne's Church for their beautiful ceremony. With a kiss and bubble exit, we headed over to Stage Fort Park for photos.
Emily and Mark first met at the New England College of Optometry in 2008. They began dating and have been with each other ever since 2012. They wanted to make their wedding truly special and unique so they decided to get married in Bermuda with their family and friends. Only 2 hours away from snowy Boston, the opal sea, pink beaches and palm trees seemed almost too good to be true!
Gloucester is such a special place to spend a sunny October afternoon! Paige and John first got to know each other when they were living in the area so it only made sense to have their engagement session there. Their go-to bar was Cape Ann Brewing right in the town center. After taking a quick walk around the Gloucester, we headed over to Half Moon Beach. There the sun was just beginning to set and lit up the trees with a gorgeous golden glow. We scaled rocks and explored the coast until it was time to head back. What a perfect fall evening!
Terra and Jamey are too adorable for words! Always smiling and laughing, it's clear how much they love each other. Terra works at the New England Aquarium training seals and sea lions - pretty much every animal lover's dream job. We had such a great time wandering around Boston during a chilly but sunny February day. The snow was gone but at least we got a gorgeous sunset! They're getting married this October at the State Room in Boston and I for one can't wait to be there for their big day.
What can I say about this fun couple who got married on one of the coldest days of the year? Well it didn't matter how cold it was outside because they lit up the Sonesta! They had a sweet ceremony with tears and laughs and then immediately went into one of the most crazy dance parties we've ever seen. You would think photographing hours and hours of dancing might get boring but not with this crowd. People of all ages were crowding the dance floor. There was a chair dance, an Irish jig, costumes, the limbo and to cap it all off confetti cannons that filled the room up with sparkles as the fireworks went off in the distance. What an epic way to ring in the New Year. Cheers to 2018!
