Jeremy and Josh kicked off my 2013 season at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, and it was awesome! Jeremy’s attention to detail paid off throughout the entire day, but how awesome does their reception look!? I also love a good bow tie and a well fitted suit, looking sharp guys!
In 2012 I delivered 16,202 photos to clients, traveled to new places (a best of travel 2012 post to follow) and met a ton of fabulous people. Below is the tightest collection I could manage from a wedding season full of hundreds of amazing moments (for your sake, not all featured here.)
Thank you to everyone for making this possible, and here’s to 2013!
Erin and Jay’s wedding closed out of 2012 season with a bang! I first met Erin at Melissa and Danny’s fabulous wedding in 2010, so when Erin contacted me last year about her upcoming wedding I knew it would be another amazing day. A day that was filled with an incredible amount of love, Erin’s dad was even looking down on her as a rainbow appeared just before the ceremony! That still gives me goosebumps.
As the guests were seated for the ceremony they were asked to take part in the event by adding a handful of grapes to the press which would then be turned into a juice Erin and Jay would share during the ceremony. A very neat idea, even if pressing grapes turned out to be much harder than anticipated. And the amazingness didn’t stop there, Jay also wrote and performed a song for Erin during the ceremony, yeah, that happened! So needless to say, it was a perfect way to finish out my season.
I hope you guys are enjoying Hawaii! Now onto the images…
I adore the MASS MoCA! If you live in the area and have never been, do yourself a favor (especially in the fall when the leaves are changing) and make the trip out there, it’s amazing! Currently an installation called “Invisible Cities” is up until February, and Lily and Josh were excited to hold their ceremony in front of an incredible piece you’ll see below.
Everyone who participated in Lily and Josh’s wedding were fun and fabulous people. Lily’s mom created all of the decor, Josh’s grandmother, an appeals court judge, officiated the ceremony, and an awesome group of friends came together for a great party, some of which they’ve known for decades. And as you can see, they’re not that old. Thanks for including me in your celebration guys!
How cool is it to travel by boat on your wedding!? The sky threatened rain, but we took the chance and headed over to the boat launch in Marblehead to be escorted across the harbor to Eastern Yacht Club for their reception, totally worth it! And check out their cake topper and cupcakes. Ashley is a veterinarian in DC, but they both have a love for animals, so incorporated their furry friends into the celebration.
A shout out goes to the ladies at Tangorra Wedding Planning as well for their organization and planning. And to Ryan and Hilary (Hugh’s brother and sister-in-law) for being my lighting assistants!
