Caroline & Ryan were married on a hot, sunny day at the beginning of July. We started our day with them at the Red Lion Inn, where they got ready and would have their reception later that evening. As Caroline and the girls were having their hair and makeup done, her gift from Ryan arrived, and it was one of the most thoughtful and elaborate wedding day gifts we’ve ever seen. There was new jewelry, family heirloom jewelry, a framed map of their journey, which began in Ireland and led them to their wedding day here in Boston, among other things – along with a card and a letter, which threatened to ruin Caroline’s makeup. Ryan nailed it. Caroline didn’t do too shabby herself, sending Ryan a guitar – these two started the day on a high note! Once they were ready to go, we headed outside for their First Look and some photos before making our way to the ceremony at St. Anthony’s in Cohasset. After the I Dos, the newlyweds exited the church surrounded by bubbles before we headed over to Cohasset Harbor for a few more photos before the party began! Back at the Red Lion, the barn was decked out in white flowers with plenty of greens, while the cocktail hour featured Irish music and Guinness! Ryan is from Ireland, where he and Caroline met when she was living abroad, and their Irish roots were woven throughout all the details of the day. After cocktail hour, Caroline & Ryan were introduced for the first time as Mr. & Mrs., leading right into their first dance. The party took off from there, and the band helped keep the dance floor going all night! Since we were approaching the 4th of July, Caroline & Ryan ended the night by exiting the barn surrounded by their friends, family & sparklers! It was a beautiful day, and we wish Caroline & Ryan a lifetime of happiness filled with trips to Ireland!

Thanks and congrats to Caroline & Ryan! Slainte!

Sara & Dan were married at the Fruitlands Museum on a perfect summer day in June, back before the heat and humidity took over New England. They arrived together, ready to go, so we got right into portraits! The grounds at the Fruitlands are gorgeous, with amazing views of the mountains. Sara & Dan chose it as their venue for that reason – they are athletes, and spend their time running marathons and hiking, so getting married in a place of such natural beauty felt like home to them. Sara’s short dress was so much fun and suited her perfectly, and the strappy back added beautiful detail. The bridesmaids chose their own navy blue dresses, with the guys in shades of gray suits. We all made our way around the property, from the classic red saltbox house to the field of wildflowers to the newly installed art sculpture. Everything from the art to the girls’ bouquets and centerpieces by Derby Farm Flowers were so bright and colorful, and it all added up to such a fun, summery feel! Once we finished photos, guests were making their way out to the field for the ceremony. Sara walked down the aisle with both of her parents, and she and Dan were married by a friend with the mountains as their background. Once they exchanged I Dos, they sealed it with a kiss, the breaking of the glass and a fist bump once they made it back down the aisle! At cocktail hour, guests were treated to charcuterie and yard games before making their way into the tent for toasts, dinner and dancing. The dance floor was kept full all night by Nick at Beat Train Productions, always one of our favorites to work with! Sara & Dan had a beautiful day, and are such a lovely couple – we are thrilled to have been a part of their wedding!

Thanks and congrats to Sara & Dan!

Simone & Peter were married on a perfect Friday evening in June in Amherst, MA. We started our day with them at the Hotel Northampton as they got ready, and we were able to do some photos in the gorgeous atrium of the hotel before heading out. Simone looked absolutely stunning in the bright, airy room, and it was a perfect place to start the day. When we arrived at the Red Barn, we got right into the First Look, and these two had so much fun with it, as you can see! They really compliment each other perfectly, and they were so easy to photograph together. They seem to have so much fun together, and were just being themselves and enjoying the day so much – they really never stopped laughing and smiling all day. After photos, everyone went inside to freshen up and guests began arriving for the ceremony. Simone’s grandfather, in his military uniform, took his place waiting for her to make her entrance so he could walk her down the aisle. Simone had told us in our original meeting that her grandparents were a very important part of the day, but she filled us in a little bit more when we got there that day. They have been married for 75 years, and there were little touches throughout Simone & Peter’s day dedicated to them, like their original cake topper adorning Simone & Peter’s cake. Seeing Simone’s grandfather walk her down the aisle was so special, and watching him hand her off to Peter – just the sweetest thing. Simone & Peter wrote their own vows, which were written in custom made books stamped with their newly shared last name. Of course they had each other, and everyone else laughing through tears, and then sealed it all with a kiss. Once they were husband & wife, everyone headed over to the lawn for yard games and cocktails, before heading in to the barn for dinner. The barn is the perfect rustic setting, with gorgeous dark wood, big windows and white lights strung everywhere. The room was perfectly complimented by fresh flowers in silver tins, table numbers done in needlepoint by Peter’s mom and homemade fudge as favors (which we can confirm was delicious). Simone & Peter entered the room, and danced their first dance as Mr. & Mrs. with smiles plastered on their faces, as their friends and family looked on. After toasts by Peter’s brother, Simone’s sister and both Moms, Simone took to the dance floor with her grandfather. Yet another of the sweetest moments we’ve seen, and I am almost sure there was not a single person in the room who didn’t have tears in their eyes. It was truly a beautiful day, with two such nice people so in love with each other – days like this one really make us love what we do.

Much thanks and congrats to Simone & Peter (and grandma & grandpa)

 

Jenn & Alex were married at the Westin Copley Place over Memorial Day weekend. When we arrived, we met Jenn & the girls in their suite, which was maybe the most awesome hotel room we’ve ever been in, and we’ve been in a lot of them! Jenn & the girls got ready with spectacular views of the city on all sides, while Alex & the guys shared some of the same views a few floors down. The girls wrapped up chocolate favors as Jenn got her makeup done, and then they popped some champagne right before getting dressed. Once everyone was ready to go, we made our way down to the city streets, where Jenn & Alex had their First Look right in front of the Boston Public Library, one of our favorite buildings in Boston. The bridal party was looking on, so they were ready to go for photos as well, and we made our way through Copley Square as onlookers cheered for the bride and groom. We love a wedding in the city, it’s so much fun catching all the unexpected things that happen, like a skateboarder rolling by or strangers asking for a selfie with the bridal party! Once we were finished with photos, we headed back upstairs where guests were beginning to arrive for the ceremony. Jenn & Alex had a Harry Potter theme, and the ceremony was decked out with elaborate floral arrangements, candles hanging from the ceiling and the aisle lined with a runner made of pages from the book. So cool! After the I Dos, guests enjoyed cocktails before being invited back in to a room that had been transformed and the curtains opened to a view of Copley Square. The Harry Potter theme continued, with pages as table numbers, quotes from the book dotted throughout the centerpieces and even Jenn & Alex’s bottles of specially brewed potions as favors. The newlyweds began the party with their first dance as husband and wife, followed by toasts, dinner and dancing! It was a beautiful Harry Potter day!

Thanks and congrats to Jenn & Alex!

Kate & Tim were married at the Red Lion Inn on a rainy spring day in May. To start the day, they both got ready onsite, before meeting on the covered bridge for their First Look. The Red Lion is a beautiful property, and even in the rain, there are lots of great spots for photos. The trees were all looking lush green, spring flowers were bloomed, and with the addition of a few clear umbrellas, we were good to go! Kate looked stunning in a lace gown, with flowers in shades of pink perfect for spring. Their bridal party consisted of all family, and once we were done with photos, we met the rest of the extended clan in the barn for photos before the ceremony. The kids in the family were all a part of the big day, and the five flower girls looked so adorable in their white dresses and gold Chucks, while the ring bearer was rocking his bow tie, suspenders and newsboy cap. After photos, Kate & Tim were married in the barn, with candles burning and the rain falling outside. Everything was so pretty and romantic, with floral design by Russo Fabulous accenting the stairs and tables. After the I Dos and cocktails upstairs, their guests joined Kate & Tim for their first dance as husband and wife, followed by toasts from Kate’s dad and Tim’s brothers. Then it was on to the dance floor, kept full all night by Patrick at South Shore Entertainment. Kate & Tim had a perfect day, even in the rain, and we were so happy to be a part of it!

Thanks and congrats to Kate & Tim!
