Kelli & Greg live in East Boston, so they chose Piers Park as a location for their engagement session. We had never been there before, and we were thrilled when we arrived and saw a beautiful waterfront park with amazing views of the skyline! It was a warm, overcast October day, and Kelli even wore the perfect dress for twirling in front of that gorgeous city view. We are looking forward to getting into the city with Kelli & Greg for their wedding this fall!
Emily & Danny were married on a crisp fall day in early October. Emily and the girls got ready at her parents house, while Danny and the guys were at a nearby hotel. Emily’s family is super sweet, and it was nice to do some photos with her and the girls and her Mom in front of their house, before she got ready in her childhood bedroom. Danny is from New York, where he and Emily now live, so his family and most of his friends traveled in for the big day, bringing their Yankees cufflinks and all! Once everyone was ready, we all headed to St. Anthony’s parish in Allston. Emily’s dad is from Brighton and had his business there, so with the church in Allston and the reception in Watertown, they kept it very local and close to their roots. After the ceremony, we arrived at the Commander’s Mansion with some time before the reception started – which was perfect for us to make use of a bunch of different locations on the beautiful grounds! Emily & Danny looked amazing, and the red brick building and paths were perfectly complimented by the little bit of color starting to peek out on the trees. Cocktail hour began just as the sun was starting to dip, and Emily & Danny joined their guests. The reception under the tent was Emily’s perfect vision of romantic and candlelit, with gorgeous centerpieces and white lights strung above. After their first dance, the new Mr. & Mrs. were toasted by friends and family before hitting the dance floor and never leaving it for the rest of the night! It was a perfect day, and we’re so happy they chose us to be a part of it!
Chelsy & Will were married on a gorgeous day at the end of September in Cohasset. The day started at the Red Lion Inn, where Chelsy & Will were getting ready, with the girls popping bottles out by the pool before moving inside for makeup touch ups and getting Chelsy into her stunning dress! Once everyone was ready, we made our way to the ceremony St. Anthony’s church, just down the street from the Red Lion. After the I Dos were said, everyone jumped back into the trolley to head to Cohasset Harbor for photos. It was a truly perfect day, with the water sparkling, bright blue sky and boats dotting the harbor. This is the kind of weather you dream of for your wedding day! The harbor is such a beautiful spot for photos, and everyone looked amazing – the girls in pink and the guys in that shade of blue really made for a stunning combination. We even got Chelsy & Will down onto the dock, where the light was perfect and they were just glowing! Afterwards, we all headed back to the Red Lion where we stopped for a few more photos of the bride and groom before they headed to cocktail hour. Guests were welcomed to the reception with a favor bar full of treats, and even a whole table of snacks and fun stuff for the kids – Chelsy & Will thought of everything! After dinner and toasts, the dance floor was kept full all night by the awesome band Clockwork Boston. They even ended the night by breaking out a Sox banner and belting Sweet Caroline! It was a beautiful day, and we wish the newlyweds a lifetime of happiness!
Katie & Andy were married on a perfect September day on the south shore. September is probably the most popular month for weddings in the last few years, and this past September really proved why, with so many days like this. It was warm and breezy, with blue skies and the perfect light, thin cloud cover. We truly could not have asked for better weather for the portrait session at Old Scituate Light! The lighthouse is situated at the end of a long jetty, surrounded by huge, gorgeous rocks and coastline. It was the perfect spot for Katie & Andy and their large bridal party! Everyone looked amazing, and climbed those big rocks in heels without complaint! Katie & Andy were stunning, and she was wearing some fun, special details – she had a heart that was cut from her grandfather’s shirt sewn into her dress, and also had Andy’s name written on the bottom of her shoe (does the way it’s written look familiar? 🙂 ), which was a sweet surprise for him during their First Look. Once we finished up with photos, we headed to St. Paul’s in Hingham for the ceremony. After Katie & Andy were all married up, everyone jumped back on the trolley and headed for the Barker Tavern, back in Scituate. The rest of the night was a great party, with Katie & Andy’s huge group of friends and family keeping the dance floor full all night. It was a beautiful day, and we are thrilled we could be a part of it!
Kimberly & Steve were married on a sunny Sunday afternoon in September. Kim got ready at her sister’s waterfront condo in Marblehead, surrounded by her beloved pets (she’s a vet!) and family. Steve had a little surprise for her to start the days as well – he sent a Rolls Royce to pick her up, along with an escort from a Marblehead police cruiser (Steve’s a cop!). It was just a five minute drive to the ceremony at Our Lady Star of the Sea, where Kim’s brother walked her down the aisle to meet Steve. Once I Dos were exchanged, we moved outside for some quick photos at the church, before heading to Misselwood. It was a bright and sunny day, with the water and sky almost the same deep shade of blue. Kim & Steve climbed out onto Misselwood’s famous rocks with us not once, but twice – the second time was during sunset, when that deep blue changed to soft pastel pinks. So gorgeous! It was a perfect, cool night for the reception under the tent, where Kim & Steve were toasted by friends and family, and Steve had a special slideshow put together for his mom in lieu of a mother/son dance. He and his brother’s also wore some of his Dad’s old baseball caps as it played, a really special moment for his family. As everyone danced the night away, we were even treated to a fireworks show somewhere across the water! We also snuck Kim & Steve out for one last photo under the twinkle lights. It was a beautiful day, and we wish the newlyweds a lifetime of happiness!
