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!

We kicked off our season this year with Joe & Tom, who were married on the first weekend of May, on a perfect spring day. We met them at the Liberty Hotel, the place where they got engaged and would also get ready for their wedding day! They had a beautiful suite with views of the skyline, and were relaxed as they got ready together, before their wedding party joined them for champagne. After the toast, we all headed out into Beacon Hill for some photos. Beacon Hill is so beautiful in the spring, so with the addition of this wedding party, who all looked amazing, it made our job pretty easy. They were all in grays, navy blues and pinks, which all look so great together on their own and especially against the red brick in Beacon Hill. The brick carried over to the Charles River Museum, which along with it’s industrial vibe, felt like the perfect venue for Joe & Tom. These two were very easy to photograph all day, they looked perfectly tailored in their suits and were so happy and easy together. Once we finished up outside of the museum, guests were beginning to arrive for the ceremony. Joe & Tom were married in the big, open room upstairs, underneath an amazing installation of greenery by the Sweet Bay Shop. After the I Dos, everyone moved downstairs for cocktails, before returning upstairs where Joe & Tom had their first dance, were toasted by their brothers and danced with their moms. After dinner, the grooms hit the dance floor surrounded by their friends, and never left it for the rest of the night. It was a perfect day, and a great way to start off our season!

Thanks and congrats to Joe & Tom!

We met with Nicole & Nick at Thomas Park in South Boston, right in their neighborhood. The park is on a hilltop, and offers amazing views of the city on one side, and the water on the other. It was a great place to start, and since Nicole & Nick live so close by, it was easy to bring their pup along for a few photos! He was very well behaved, and we kept his attention right up until another dog came to play 🙂 After a few more photos there with just Nicole & Nick, we headed down to Castle Island. It was quiet for a Saturday, still chilly enough to keep the crowds away, but the winds were calm and the light was soft and pretty. Nicole & Nick looked cozy and happy, and were so easy to photograph together. It was a great afternoon, and we’re looking forward to their even cozier winter wedding next year!

Thanks and congrats to Nicole & Nick!
