Jenny and Dennis were married in the sweetest backyard wedding in Milton MA. Their deep, rich colors spanned the way through the bridesmaids getting ready robes and dresses, the flowers and pops of color throughout the reception. The craft beer selection made such a cool and unique impact on the celebration and Gracie Lou Events, as always brought everything together seamlessly. I was thrilled to pieces to find out their stunning wedding was featured in The Knot Boston!!
Willowdale Estate in Massachusetts is one of my favorite venues. It is just stunning in every season! Jason and Stephanie exchanged vows at St. John the Evangelist in Swampscott and then scooted over for the reception at Willowdale. Can you handle the cuteness factor coming from the flower girl, ring bearer and the mini-pomeranian? (especially the Batman t-shirt tucked underneath the ring bearers suit!)
I can’t get over all of the beautiful yellow and pink flowers by Kabloom! They even made an appearance in the girls getting ready robes. This couple had wonderful, personal touches throughout their day. Their ceremony was officiated by Katie’s grandfather at Alden Castle. The bride also wore her mother’s wedding dress and the groom wore his grandfather’s wedding band. So sweet!
The day started off with getting ready shots of the girls. Demiche beaute applied their make up while they giggled and blushed talking about how exciting it is that Cheryl’s marrying Brian! We decided that it would be best to do a first look prior to the ceremony. We set up the formals right outside at the garden and then headed to the World Trade Center for some fun bridal party shots. Their ceremony was held in the Winter Garden which was decorated with pretty lights and a Christmas tree. Post ceremony we took some cool Boston city shots. As soon as you walked into the reception you noticed the beautiful centerpieces by flou(-e)r and their perfect winter wedding cake by The Icing On The Cake. The night was filled with sweet speeches, dancing and amazing cocktails! The best part of the night was watching Brian show off his singing skills with the band Nightshift!
I should mention that Cheryl is a very close and dear friend to me. Cheryl & Brian… I love you guys!

Kyle got ready in the beautiful Presidential Suite of the Fairmont Copley. She was positively stunning in her Lela Rose dress and her pair of sparkly Kate Spade shoes. For the girls makeup Tara Sgroi from Robin Erb Skincare did an amazing job! Everyone looked stunning!
Their traditional ceremony, held at the Paulist Center and Chapel, concluded with the celebrations of guests waving white ribbons as Kyle and Liam made their way to an antique Rolls-Royce.
The reception took place in the timeless glamour of the Oval Room at Fairmont Copley amidst beautiful purple and cream centerpieces by Lotus Floral events and their cake stunning cake by Cakes To Remember. Everyone brought their best moves and danced the whole night to songs performed by Cracked Ice, with Jonny Rosch on lead vocals.
We were honored to be part of such a truly beautiful and magical evening. Thank you David for assisting and Hilary for shooting with me!
Kyle and Liam had me photographer their wedding rehearsal at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.
The Gardner doesn’t allow flash photography, which naturally presents challenges when photographing indoors. Thankfully, my camera does an amazing job in low lighting situations and I was able to grab wonderful shots of guests mingling around the artwork. It was the perfect location to have an intimate party and I had a wonderful time shooting it. Truly an amazing experience.
Here are a couple of my favorite images:
Nadea & Esat’s gorgeous ceremony and reception was held at the Hampshire House in September. The girls got ready at the Liberty Hotel where I photographed all of the beautiful getting ready details including their beautiful flowers by Allison Phalen Floral Designs. The had a nice ceremony and were married by Reverend Maddie Sifantus. We took their formals at the Public Garden under the Willow Trees. While walking back to the Hampshire House it started to rain and I snapped a couple of shots of them walking with their umbrella. Gorgeous! Everything about Nadea and Esat’s wedding was perfect and magical. I was very impressed with the Hampshire house and would highly recommend them to anyone having a small and intimate wedding.
