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!
Daniella and Ted had their first date in Austin at a wine bar and 3 hours later they knew they wanted to see more of each other. On a family trip to Iceland, they toured waterfalls, went snowmobiling and took a private tour inside of a glacier. It was there that Ted got down on one knee and proposed! When planning a location for their wedding, they considered their family and friends in New York, Texas, California and Mexico. Instead of picking just one of those spots they decided to make an adventure of it and get married in Italy. What better place than Ravello, the balcony of the Amalfi Coast!
This wedding was such a wonderful experience for us. Sarah is the sister of one of our all time favorite couples Jennifer & Tobin they and flew us out to Chicago to capture the beauty of their city! It was an unseasonably warm fall day when we toured around all the sites. We began with their first look right outside their apartment. We then took a trolley to Navy Pier with an incredible view of the city. We then went to the bridges over the river downtown and finally made a stop at the iconic Chicago Theater.
If there's one word I can use to describe Lauren and Brian, it's enthusiasm! Brian especially is one of the happiest guys I've ever seen to get married. His expression as Lauren was walking down the aisle was first of awe then of excitement then of pure joy. After the ceremony they were practically dancing down the aisle!
Spending time in World's End, it's hard to imagine that you are so close to Boston. The quiet, idyllic hills and coastline have been kept pristine for generations, thanks to The Trustees of Reservations. We met on a warm fall day when the leaves were just beginning to turn. The sun gave out that golden hue as we walked around with Benji, their little French Bulldog pup. I don't think Jess and Sin can take a bad photo as their glamorous style lit up the natural beauty around them. The session came to an end all too soon as the sun retreated. We could have spent hours exploring all World's End has to offer!
Alexis and Justin met at Sacred Heart college where they were the same major. After spending pretty much every class together, they finally began dating after a year. Almost 9 years later, they are getting married on and Alexis' grandmother's anniversary.
Sam first saw Marilyn on a night out and was immediately smitten. He thought she was beautiful and was dying to get her number. A friend gave it to her and he then invited her out on a bike ride date. Since then they have had two adorable kids! Their wedding day began getting ready in an adjoined suite on the top floor of the Westin. It was an unseasonably warm and sunny October day where and the views from the top were simply stunning!
These two have such a wonderful group of family and friends supporting them and it was truly an honor to be a part of their wedding day. Leia and Peter have been together for a long time. Leia is down to earth and caring and Peter is full of energy and laughter. They are the perfect match and with all the love shown during their wedding, you can tell they are destined to be together!
Elaine and Tuan are seriously one of my favorite couples ever. They're just too dang funny and never take life too seriously. Their wedding wedding began at Emmanuel Church in Boston. A gorgeous spot right in the center of the city, their vows were sweet with so many laughs! After they officially tied the knot, we walked over to the Boston Public gardens for some portraits. Dancing and goofing around, you can tell they know how to live it up! We then walked over to Acorn Street in Beacon Hill for a few more shots of just Elaine and Tuan before heading over to China Pearl in Quincy.

Being around these two quickly made me realize that Breezy and Tim truly are best friends. They've been together for 6 years and their smiles are contagious! We had such a wonderful afternoon exploring the cliff walk and goat island as the sun was setting. I can't wait to be a part of their big day next June on the Cape!
Tammie and Levan's gorgeous wedding at the Villa in East Bridgewater
Their wedding began with everyone getting ready at the hotel. They had their first look on the rotunda overlooking the harbor and the street below. After a few photos under the arch, they began their ceremony around the beautiful sofreh. Persian ceremonies are a lot more interactive than western ones, where the audience cheers at different points, loved ones bring gifts to the table and the women closest to them rub sugar cones together over a cloth of unity to symbolize the sweetness of their marriage.
Their wedding day began with some threatening forecasts of rain. It was disappointing to think that we wouldn't be able to go outside and take advantage of the beautiful grounds. Thankfully the rain finally stopped and 5 minutes before the ceremony began and they chose to move from the tent to the lawn. It was a real team effort with the kitchen staff and coordinators rearranging the chairs and me and Jovan moving the flowers. Jovan and I even doubled as flower girls spreading the petals moments before they walked down the aisle! It was totally worth it to make Stephanie and Billy's dream come true of getting married looking over the allée of the Crane Estate!
