where it all started

I know Valentine’s Day gets a bad rap for being a “Hallmark holiday” but any day that celebrates eating chocolate, and being in love, is a good day in my book! So here’s to those who will get engaged today, and to those who have been in love, or hope to be!

Looking Back at 2013

Boom, 2013 is in the bank!

Every year this proves to be the most difficult blog post to draft. I imagine it’s a lot like picking a favorite child (I know some of you have them, it just changes on a daily basis I’m guessing.) So as of today, here’s just a tiny slice of my favorite wedding images from 2013. Although tomorrow I am sure to have a new group of favorite photo children.

Rachel + Bryan at The Hamilton

For my last wedding of the fall season I had the opportunity to travel to Milwaukee Wisconsin for Rachel and Bryan’s wedding shindig! Milwaukee has a similar vibe to the Fort Point District of Boston, with several converted buildings, except for one main difference, most of the brick you’ll find in Milwaukee is cream, hence the cities nickname “Cream City.”

Rachel and Bryan are also my seasons winners (if I was running a contest) for the best photo bomb, see below! Thanks again for having me back to your fabulous city Rachel and Bryan, I had a blast!

Hillary + Benny at the Harvard Club of Boston Downtown

Hillary and Benny are a perfect example of a 21st century romance. They met online, and fell in love over Skype, all before having the chance to meet in person, now that’s a smart use of technology! Fast forward a few years, and I also fell in love with Hillary via Skype (as New Yorkers we weren’t able to meet in person prior to their wedding.) And I couldn’t have had more fun documenting their day atop the city.

Jamie + Ben at The Artists for Humanity EpiCenter

So sometimes the government shuts down and you have to select a backup location for your wedding ceremony the next day. This little hiccup didn’t phase Jamie or Ben though. Earlier this month they married at deCordova Sculpture Park, despite congress, in a semi-private ceremony. Then a few days later they threw a fabulously fun dance/beer pong playing (this is how they met!) shindig at The Artists for Humanity EpiCenter.

As a lover of color (and a good dance party) I couldn’t have had more fun working with these two!
