Oh what a beautiful morning! Charmie and Gordon got married in the sunny late morning of April 25, 2015 at Ruggles Baptist Church right in downtown Boston. We started off the day with an intimate first look and some family portraits. The reception that followed was a feast of delicious breakfast food and mimosas (yum! breakfast!) with a few dances and toasts. I’m so glad to be sharing these images with you today. Congratulations Charmie and Gordon!
If you like intimate emotional weddings with personal touches then you’re going to like this one! Kelsey and Tori got married on April 11 at The Endicott Estate in Dedham MA. The couple made many of the decorations and Kelsey even made her own dress! There were giant jenga blocks for the guests to sign instead of a traditional guest book and board games laid out throughout the venue for playing. Yummy food, a small gathering of close friends and family… what more could you want out of a wedding? The following is a small collection of my favorite images from the day. Congratulations Tori and Kelsey!
I’m so excited to share this look into Ben and Julian’s wedding at the Exchange Conference Center in Boston. The hardest part was not choosing too many photos for this post! These two charming grooms are so photogenic and sweet together and not afraid to goof around and get silly in front of the camera. The day was slightly windy but otherwise gorgeous and we lucked out with the full yellow moon later in the evening. Big congrats to Ben and Julian! Your day was so much fun!
Alyissa and Chris decided to have their engagement photos taken at Sligo pub in Davis square which is a cozy bar that they have frequented together for many years.
Their wedding took place at Hamilton Hall in Salem MA which is a great spot for an indoor winter wedding!
It seems I’ve been shooting a lot of small intimate weddings lately and I’m loving it! In my 1st email exchange with the couple they said “we’re having a small (30 person) wedding, with no wedding party, and probably breaking all of the traditions in the process. We’re looking for a quirky photographer to capture the moment with our family and close friends.” I was honored to have been chosen to be that photographer.
The couple got ready together at their Cambridge apartment then took the train downtown to The College Club of Boston. They definitely got lots of looks and attention and I snuck in a selfie with them at Park St station. The ceremony included wedding vowels and a ring bear. That is not a typo! They also rolled dice to determine who’d read their vows first. After dinner and dancing they ended the night by playing their first video game together as a couple. They played together against the game and of course were victorious. A big big congrats to Elizabeth and Edward!
Here’s a quick look through Sarah & Matt’s intimate backyard wedding. By keeping it small and hosting it at Matt’s parent’s house they were really able to be present in their day and share a lot of time with their family and guests. Overall the day was a great success. So much love, smiles & tears packed into a few short hours. A big congrats to Sarah & Matt!
Emily and Chris got married at Camp Joslin in Charlton MA which is a summer camp for boys with diabetes. When camp is not in session they rent it out for weddings and private events and all the money goes right back the camp and the kids. Pretty awesome huh? That being said, they are not a wedding venue so the couple was responsible for decorating the hall themselves. They certainly rose to the challenge. They purchased tons of string lights on clearance after the holidays in 2013. They hand painted constellations onto table runners, collected bottles and jars for a year to use as vases, and enlisted the help of friends to make a disco ball piñata! The couple created bear-charichatures of each guest for the seating chart (I even got one with cameras and red glasses!) and hand made enough friendship bracelets for everyone. They brought in Smokestack Urban BBQ to cater the event from their truck so the guests got to feast on pulled pork, BBQ chicken and mac&cheese (yum!) amongst other goodies. The rain held out long enough for the couple to have an intimate outdoor ceremony and a few family pictures. All in all the day was a great success and I hope you enjoy this small look into their special day. I certainly enjoyed being a part of it.
Here’s an inside look at Vio & John’s gorgeous wedding at The Atkinson Resort & Country Club. Not only was it a beautiful day, but it was extra special to have so many of Vio’s family members who travelled all the way from Moldova to attend. It was an honor for me to share this day with them and I hope you enjoy this sneak peek of their day.
And of course… my client selfie!
