Shannon & Tommy were married a few weeks before Christmas at the Red Lion Inn in Cohasset. The Red Lion is a perfect venue for a winter wedding, with it’s wooden bridges, stone paths and cozy fireplaces. The whole bridal party got ready onsite, so while the girls were toasting champagne, the guys were downstairs cracking open their groomsmen’s gifts as they tied ties and folded pocket squares. Once everyone was ready, Shannon and Tommy met for their First Look – it was so perfect, and brought Tommy to tears! Afterwards, the bridal party joined us, with the girls looking festive in red with white shawls and the guys complimenting them with blue suits and red ties. Shannon had a gorgeous green plaid shawl from Ireland, and the perfect bouquet in shades of red and white from Russo Fabulous. The Red Lion was all decked out for Christmas, with wreaths, trees and sparkly white lights, so there were lots of great spots for photos. It really is a venue that looks great year round! Shannon and Tommy were so easy going together, and had so much fun all day – they didn’t even mind staying outside with us in December! After photos, the ceremony was held in the barn, which was filled with Christmas lights and sparkling from every corner of the room. After the I Dos, the party began with cocktail hour, followed by the new Mr. & Mrs. sharing their first dance. Dinner and toasts were followed by everyone dancing the night away beneath the lights. It was a perfect, cozy holiday wedding, and we were thrilled to be a part of it.

Thanks and congrats to Shannon & Tommy!

Amanda & Artie were married on the first day of December at Old Sturbridge Village, where her parents were married 30 years before. It was a chilly, bright day, and we arrived to a very thin layer of snow on the ground. The grounds were all decorated for Christmas, looking like a quaint New England holiday village. Amanda looked so perfect for a winter wedding, all glowing in white with green details – and Artie was so excited to see her when they met for their First Look on the path leading to the chapel where they would be married. These two have so much fun together, and keep each other laughing constantly. The bridal party joined us for photos, all looking perfect for a holiday wedding as well, in greens, blues and gray shawls for the girls. The village is such a cool spot for photos, we could have stayed there all day, especially with the added fun of Christmas decorations! But, we had to finish up and get to the ceremony eventually, which was held in the old chapel on the grounds. Amanda and the girls arrived to the ceremony by horse drawn carriage, where she met Artie on the alter to exchange I Dos. The chapel is cozy and about as old New England as it gets – when Amanda & Artie made their way back down the aisle, they signaled their marriage by ringing the bell atop the church, by way of rope. After a few more photos, they jumped in the carriage to be taken to the reception, which was decked out in Christmas trees, candles and wreaths. They had taken a ballroom dancing class to prepare for their first dance, so they got to show off their moves to all their family and friends – we got a sneak peek at their engagement session 🙂 They had a perfect day – we love Christmas, and this was a really cool wedding with two of the nicest people, so it was a great way to kick off the start of a few winter weddings for us!

Thanks and congrats to Amanda & Artie!

    Congratulations to you both! I was a florist for over 30 years and I have to say that it was rare to see this much smiling and happiness. You made this special day your own. You chose a perfect venue. I wish that I had been a guest. You were a stunning bride and your groom was very dashing. The photography was amazing.
    Your flowers were spectacular.
    I am so happy you had this wonderful day. Best wishes for a very happy and long life together!


We had one last fall engagement session with Kathryn & Nick at the beginning of November. They wanted to get it in before the foliage was gone, and it was probably the last week the trees still had color – and a lot of it! Sometimes late in the season gets you some of the most vibrant color, especially when the sun is shining, making everything especially glowy. This day actually started out rainy, but turned itself right around within the first few minutes of our session, and ended up being beautiful. We made our way down the esplanade, and then into Back Bay to finish up, which all looks so amazing in the fall. We look forward to doing it all again in a different neighborhood, and with some warmer weather, for their wedding this summer!

Thanks and congrats to Kathryn & Nick!

We met with Mia & Emily on the most perfect day at the end of October for their engagement session in the Public Garden. They brought along their pups for a few photos, so we started with that – you never know how things are going to go with dogs, but these two were so well behaved and cooperative! We were able to get a few things done with them, before making our way through the rest of the park with Mia & Emily. Everything looked so beautiful, with color both on the ground and still on the trees, reflecting on the calm water. Mia & Emily are very easy going and natural together, so everything added up to make our job easy! It also happened to be the day that the Red Sox would play in the game that would win them the World Series, so Mia & Emily brought their Sox jerseys for a few good luck photos. It worked! After that, we finished up with a few more photos in Beacon Hill, which always looks amazing as Halloween approaches. It was a perfect day, as was their wedding (they’re already married… if you didn’t notice, we’re way behind getting everything from last season up on the blog – getting there!) Stay tuned for their winter wedding, coming up soon!

Thanks and congrats to Mia & Emily!

Alexi & Sean were married on a rainy day at the end of October. We started our day with them as they got ready in suites at the Omni Providence Hotel. Alexi had gorgeous details, including a dress with a detachable skirt, a custom painted dusty rose leather jacket and a gorgeous bouquet in shades of pink and red – which all complimented the girls’ dusty rose dresses perfectly. Once everyone was ready to go, we made it to the church, where the I Dos were exchanged, and Alexi & Sean came back down the aisle as husband and wife. We made our way over to Kirkbrae with the intention of getting as many outdoor shots as we could with umbrellas, but it wasn’t just a rainy day – it was more like a pouring, windy, monsoon kind of day. Luckily the girls all had leather jackets, so we were able to get everyone outside briefly, and then stayed out a little longer on the covered patio with
Alexi & Sean. They really stuck it out with us as long as possible, and looked great doing it! Alexi’s jacket was not only beautiful, but the perfect accessory to have on a day like that! The rest of the night was spent in the beautiful, cozy ballroom, with toasting, dancing and family and friends keeping the rain outside off of everyone’s minds. We thank Alexi & Sean for sticking it out with us through the storm, and wish them a lifetime of happiness!

Thanks and congrats to Alexi & Sean!
