Olivia & Daniel were married on a sunny Friday in August at Alden Castle in Brookline. We started the day with them as they got ready across the hall from each other in Air BnB rentals in the same building! It was a great way to get ready and be super close, enough for their friends to be running back and forth across the hall, but still not see each other before the First Look. The atmosphere while they got ready was like one big party before the day even officially started, so we knew we were in for a good day! Once everyone was ready, we all hopped into Ubers to make our way to the Emerald Necklace, across from Alden Castle, where they met for their First Look. The bridal party wasn’t far behind, and joined us for photos in the park, before we finished up with the bride and groom at the Longwood T Stop. Olivia & Daniel have an amazing story – she is from here in MA, Daniel is from South Africa, and they met in Australia, so they had friends and family traveling from all over the world to be with them on their big day. It seemed appropriate to do a few photos to mark the very Boston spot on the Greenline where they got married! Afterwards, we walked right across the street for their ceremony at Alden, officiated by a friend and marked with a few personal readings from family. After the I Dos, everyone headed upstairs for cocktail hour, and then joined the new Mr. & Mrs. for dinner, a few funny toasts highlighting their journey together and finally finishing out the night on the dance floor. We had a great time with Olivia & Daniel, and loved being a part of their love story.

Thanks and congrats to Olivia & Daniel!

Megan & Nate were married on a sunny July day in their neighborhood of Charlestown. Megan got ready at a hotel on the harbor, while Nate was nearby at their condo – then we all met on a pier near the Charlestown bridge for their First Look, surrounded by boats and a view of the city! We love how Megan & Nate planned for their wedding day to be really immersed in the neighborhood they know and love so much, and their intention was to have all of us and their guests walk the streets from one destination to another. So that’s exactly what we did! After the First Look, we grabbed the bridal party and made our way through the streets of Charlestown, stopping at Training Field, the Bunker Hill Monument and some of those classic tiny streets with Boston peeking up in the background. It is such a gorgeous neighborhood, we really couldn’t imagine a better place for photos! And when we were finished, we walked 5 minutes down the street to the church where Megan & Nate’s family and friends were waiting to watch them exchange vows. Once they said I Do, everyone poured out of the church and onto the street to walk along the water, through Charlestown Navy Yard and finally to the reception, which was outside at Pier 6 restaurant. The reception had a casual, cocktail vibe with amazing views of the city. Megan & Nate arrived to greet their friends, before sneaking off to the end of the pier for a quick private champagne toast and a practice run of their first dance, just as the sun was setting over the city. Everything about their day was so beautiful and unique, and so personal to them – we loved it and were so happy to be there!

We started out our session with Amanda & Artie by taking a little walk with their pups, who were pretty excited to be out seeing so many other dogs and people! They cooperated for just as long as we needed them though, getting some nice photos for Mom & Dad 🙂 After we finished up with the dogs, we made our way around Castle Island and these two laughed the whole way – Artie was really good at whispering funny little things to Amanda, and pretty much kept us all entertained. They even gave us a little sneak peek of the dance they’ve been practicing for the wedding, and if they can do it that well on the beach, we can’t wait to see it on the big day! Which is actually only a few weeks away – see you guys again so soon!

Thanks and congrats to Amanda & Artie!

After spending Saturday morning with Tram & Justin for their tea ceremony, we were excited to get to the big wedding day on Sunday! Justin and the guys showed up at the Villa ready to go, while Tram and the girls got dressed in the bridal suite and had a quick toast. We snuck outside for a few photos before the ceremony, which was held on the lawn – rain threatened up until the last minute, but Tram & Justin decided to take their chances and keep it outside, and it turned out perfect! After the I Dos, the bridal party joined us for photos, and the sun started to peek out just enough to make Tram & Justin glow. Once we were all finished up, we headed inside where the bride and groom were introduced and had their first dance as husband and wife. After toasts and their dances with their Mom and Dad, we grabbed Tram & Justin to head out to the old bridge for a few quiet photos. It had started to drizzle a little, so we pulled out the umbrella and also had Tram & Justin do another, private first dance. It was so pretty and romantic – sometimes it’s nice to take a few minutes away from the party before things really get going and it all flies by! Once we headed back in, the dance floor was full and Tram & Justin joined their friends and family to finish off their weekend celebration. We loved being a part of everything from their tea ceremony to their wedding day!

Thanks and congrats to Tram & Justin!

Tram & Justin held a traditional Vietnamese tea ceremony the day before their wedding in July, kicking off two full days of festivities with their families! We have never been a part of a tea ceremony before, so we were so excited to photograph it. We arrived to Tram’s parents’ house early that morning, where everyone was already dressed in the most gorgeous, colorful traditional garments. The bride, along with her family and bridesmaids were in the house, as Justin and his groomsmen and family arrived. As the ceremony began, Tram was hidden away in her bedroom, as the bridesmaids met the groomsmen outside to receive the gifts – then they were all carried inside, where the introductions began. Tram’s uncle was the MC, and introduced the bride’s side of the family, followed by Justin’s father introducing his side – then it was time for Tram’s mom to retrieve her from the bedroom, and bring her out to her groom! Tram & Justin then offered tea to every member of their family, and received gifts in exchange. Afterwards, the family was treated to a Vietnamese feast prepared by Tram’s grandmother, and we headed outside for some photos. It was a great way to start off the weekend, and we always love seeing the way different cultures and families celebrate. We continued the festivities the next day, so stay tuned for part two coming up next!
