Dani & Alan: Married! | A Cinquecento Boston Wedding A Sophisticated South End Soirée

Dani has to be my most laid back bride when it comes to wedding planning.  Throughout the entire process, she was so relaxed, and simply wanted to let the day roll out as it may, and spend the day celebrating and hanging out with her close family and friends.  Both Dani & Alan simply spent the day being 100% calm, cool, and collected, and Josh and I enjoyed every second, despite the rain threatening our original plans  (what is with rain only falling on Fridays and Saturdays this year?).  I started my day off with Dani and all of the special ladies in her life, including Alan’s mom and sister at the W hotel, then heading off to Cinquecento, which is officially now one of my favorite wedding venues!  This restaurant has such a sophisticated and swanky vibe, and food that not only tastes absolutely delicious, but looks and smells just as amazing.  Colleen and her team made sure everyone were taken care of, and were absolutely wonderful to work with.  But I am getting ahead of myself – let’s get back to some images of the day!

Even though the rain decided not to hold off, we kept everyone covered just outside Cinquecento, while Josh protected me from the rain (and oncoming traffic).

Jill & Brian: Married! | A Jones River Trading Company Wedding

How about all of this unseasonably warm weather we’re having lately?  Jill & Brian’s wedding day was one of those late September 80 degree days where the sun shone brightly over what turned out to be a day filled with so much excitement and happiness.  Having seen their group of friends just a few weeks earlier at celebrating for Jen & Chris, I knew that we were in for a fun filled day.  I was joined by my wonderful colleague Kristin Jordan, who spent her time with Brian and his groomsmen, while I arrived at Jill’s home where the whole house was bustling, while Jill was finishing up hair and makeup.  Jill is one of the most caring people; always thinking of everyone around her, spending most of her time trying to take care of everyone else and making sure they were having a great day.  It was so sweet, and you could tell that everyone was so excited to turn the tables and make the day about Jill & Brian!

I love these robes Jill gave each of her girls, and with some down time (it’s always great to leave some padding in your timeline so you can relax for a little bit!), we headed outside to soak up the sun!

Meanwhile, Brian and his men were getting ready to head out (on their beloved Harley’s no less), to the beach to meet up with the ladies.

As we arrived at Duxbury beach, I heard the hum of what I knew had to be the motor of Brian’s Harley coming over the bridge.

Brian couldn’t wait until Jill got to him, and spun around as soon as he heard her voice.

Since the beach was jam packed with people (who doesn’t want to go to the beach on the last weekend in September?), we jaunted over to the Jones River Trading Company for some relaxed portraits out of the blazing sun.

With our formal portraits out of the way, it was time for the ceremony – and Brian was all smiles as Jill walked down the aisle.  Nothing can take away from that moment of knowing your bride is walking towards you to become your wife.  Everyone was so happy for these two – I love whenI can see the excitement on everyone’s faces.  Don’t hold back those emotions, especially during the most important part of the day!

It’s so nice after your ceremony to pull away just for a few minutes (especially if it’s right at sunset) to take in those first few moments of being married without any distractions (besides me shooting from across the street, so you can have some quiet time).

Tracy & Eddy: Married! | A Venezia Boston Wedding A Classic & Contemporary Chinese Wedding

Tracy and Eddy are one of those couples that just get each other.  Both of them have such a quiet and calm presence, with just the right amount of spunk and goofiness.  After photographing them this spring at their engagement session, I knew that their wedding day was going to be brimming with elegance.  With a beautiful pink and grey palette, it was a classic affair, mixing timeless Chinese traditions with a New York flair.  I was joined by my colleague Tara Lyn Z and handsome assistant Josh (I’m allowed to say that when it’s my husband!),  and a wonderful team of vendors.  From the Brenda and her team at Venezia (who not only made sure the guests were taken care of, but treated us so well, and made sure we were fed quickly and early so we could get back to business before the guests had finished their meals), to the makeup and hair team from Lisa Chy and May Chin leaving all of the girls looking absolutely flawless, and perfectly arranged flowers from The Tangled Web, everything was exactly as it should be.

Tracy & Eddy opted to do all of their photos before the ceremony and have a first look, so they could enjoy the day.  We found a quiet spot at the Arnold Arboretum for just the two of them before asking the bridal party to join us.  Once Tracy and Eddy signaled it was ok for us to come on over, we took a few portraits and had the rest of the crew jump in!

Venezia has some pretty awesome spots for pictures, between this awesome wall just across the way, a spectacular view of Boston (we had some clouds blocking it, but it was still awesome), and the docks, we had some fun before it was time for all of the guests to arrive!  It’s so great to get family formals out of the way before they actually have to watch all the rest of the guests having fun without them.  It makes everything go so much quicker, since there’s nothing distracting the group!

Deandra & Brett: Married! | A Willowdale Estate Wedding

There are some weddings where you know, well before they arrive, that it’s going to be a great day.  I first met Deandra & Brett at Jamie & Matt’s wedding, where Deandra was one of Jamie’s (many!) bridesmaids.  One day last year, I checked my email to find a note from a very excited Deandra saying she was engaged, and knew she wanted me as her wedding photographer!  Fast forward a date change and a year later, and I was already smiling knowing that not only did I know how wonderful the bride, groom, and venue were, but that I would be seeing a total of four of my couples all at one time, surrounded by their super sweet (and hysterical) friends.  I was joined by my wonderfully talented colleague Katie Noble, and my awesome assistant Cori who both helped the day run flawlessly.  Nichole and the Willowdale Estate team were wonderful to work with, and I was pleasantly surprised to bump into the florist for my own wedding, Stephanie’s Floral Design!  But enough chatter from me, scroll on for what you’re really here for….

It doesn’t happen very often that there’s a recessional as organized as this – each couple waited for the one before to make it down the aisle, and everyone was clearly having fun and ready to party!

Deandra and Brett had a cigar bar to entertain their guests during dinner – it’s so interesting to see these hand made.

Jenn & Chris: Married! | A Tirrell Room Wedding in Quincy Massachusetts

Jenn & Chris had a beautiful wedding day holding on to the last few days of summer before fall showed up in full effect (with a break back to summer for Jill & Brian’s wedding – but more on that later!).  This was a day that was absolutely about celebrating with family and friends.  Jenn & her ladies could not stop smiling all day, and it was so awesome how reality would set in when Jenn would least expect it, and she’d burst into happy tears that she was really going to be marrying Chris.  I can’t count how many times I heard her say, “you guys, it’s really here!” during the day.  With a bridal party prepped to celebrate, three of my couples in attendance, and my awesome colleague and friend Elaine Donohue shooting with me, I knew it was going to be a great day.

Of course, Jenn’s phone was blowing up with well wishes and congratulations, and as she read them to everyone, the excitement built knowing she’d see them (and Chris!) in just a few hours!

Meanwhile Elaine spent some time with the guys, who were very obviously having zero way too much fun.

Jenn’s dad was so excited to see her, and couldn’t help but let out a few tears of his own.

After the ceremony, we headed over to hingham harbor for some easy family photos – it’s pretty awesome when you can work in the perfect golden light hour!

After giving the go ahead to family and bridal party that they could head out to start relaxing in the trolley, loading the bride up in my car (it was a big parking lot to walk across in those heels!), and ignoring a do not enter sign or two, we stole Jenn & Chris away to the public docks as the sky put on an entire show for us, turning Hingham Harbor into a perfect watercolor painting during sunset.
