Olivia and Hash live in Miami so coming up from Florida to New England in November was definitely a change of pace! New England fall colors were in full effect, which is exactly what they wanted for their big day. They began with an intimate ceremony on the beach under an arbor and surrounded by only their closest family members. With a cheer and a flurry of flower petals, they were off back to Tupper Manor so Olivia could change into her second dress.

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.
Where do I start with this wedding. These Texans somehow managed to combine a red Porche, Mariachi band, Harry Potter and real owls into their rustic Vermont wedding day. How you ask? Watch the film below to find out!
Katie and Eric are always up for adventure. When I suggested they go in the water during their sunset engagement session, they did it with no hesitation. When we suggested they climb up a stone rock face to get an epic drone shot, they went for it. Finally when we suggest Katie goes into the water again in her wedding dress, she went straight in. Thank you guys for being up for anything. You guys are dream clients!

As we made our way to the Garden, it was a quintessential Boston scene with the little leaves dotting overhead and cherry blossoms floated on the air along Commonwealth Avenue. With weeks of rain, the sun gave way for these two.
A harp played in the Oval Room of the Fairmont as guests took their seats for their ceremony. If you've ever walked through it's ornate interior, rich with architectural details at every turn, it was an absolute pleasure to capture their day against this backdrop. In the Grand Ballroom, the dinner was perfectly set.
Knowing Cho, personally, and a great deal of his friends from Newton days, we knew they'd get the party started right and dance late into the night. We wish them many years of lasting memories.
When two filmmakers ask you to film and photograph their wedding, it's always a nerve wracking prospect. When one of them is a veteran of LV and Above Summit then it's an even bigger undertaking! These two planned their elopement to be something totally different than anything we've ever seen before. They traveled to NYC and rented a helicopter, saying their vows to each other and sealing it with a kiss high above the city! After the high flying ceremony, we went to Top of the Rock to watch the sunset over the city. Finally, we took the short walk to Times Square and they had fun twirling around in the heart of the city.
