You may remember Katie and Julian from their killer engagement session this spring in California. If not, definitely check it out HERE!

Fast forward to August, when I joined them at one my favorite venues in New England, the Boston Public Library, for their wedding extravaganza. Personal details like the floral embroidery from the wedding dress of Katie’s mom was added to hers, the notebook wedding favors, and the very reason they hosted their event in a library (a fitting choice for two writers) all made for a meaningful celebration. Not to mention their fantastic families and friends, who gave some of the most hilarious and creative toasts.

Thanks for welcoming me to your home in California, and for including me in your wedding here in Boston! Whaddaya say, this time next year again?
