Craig and Michael- New England Aquarium Wedding

Finally! That’s the word I heard most on the day of Craig and Michael’s wedding, from them, from their family, from their guests. Because after 21 years as a couple, it was really more of a formality and a celebration of their already beautiful and loving partnership. And this was a celebration for the ages!

Craig and Michael are warm, hilarious, fun, welcoming, engaging. They blended their two cultures- Craig’s Scandinavian/Christianity and Michael’s Judaism- to create a very personal ceremony lead by one of their dearest friends. Following this, guests enjoyed cocktails around the aquarium and then a dinner and dance party under a perfectly designed tent.

There are so many favorite moments from this day, but probably my favorite image is actually two images. The first I captured of Craig and Michael at the spot where they first met. The two are snuggling into each other so sweetly. The second was actually of two penguins at the Aquarium in the same position. Together they make me giggle, especially as their graphic theme for their wedding was penguins.

Congrats to Craig and Michael and many thank yous to all the people who made their day so special:

Liz and B.J.- State Room Wedding

Liz and B.J. found each other via the water. Both competitive swimmers. And when water is such an integral part of your life, it also becomes an element of your relationship and ultimately your wedding. So it is perfectly fitting that they got ready for their day at the Intercontinental Hotel with views of the Boston Bay and selected the State Room’s Great Hall with views of city and the water for their reception. We ultimately chose to do their first look behind the hotel, along a dock leading to the water. Though friends and family were above looking on, it felt isolated. It felt calming. It felt right. The perfect start to the next chapter of their lives together.

Congrats to Liz and BJ and many thanks to all the professionals who made their day so special:

Kristin and Tim- Willowdale Wedding


We first met Kristin at one of our favorite weddings, that of Andrea and Eric. She was one of the bridesmaids who sang her toast to Andrea during dinner. It was amazing!!! So when it came time for her to tie the knot, we already knew we were in for really good times. From their engagement session to their wedding celebration, Kristin and Tim found so many ways to share their love of each other and their love of the outdoors.

Choosing a winter wedding in New England for many would be a daunting option. For Kristin and Tim it was perfect. These two skiers couldn’t have had it any other way. And of course, we were all hoping that the weather would cooperate with just enough snow to be beautiful, but not dangerous. Thank you, New England Weather, for accommodating this time!

Congrats to Kristin and Tim and many thank you’s to all the people who made their day so special:

Sophie + Mehmet: Fairmont Copley Plaza Wedding

Blending cultures and families in an intimate gathering. Sophie and Mehmet focused on the special traditions of each of their families- hers Chinese and his Turkish. The incorporated the Chinese Tea Ceremony complete with traditional clothing as well as Turkish music complete with lively dancing. They brought together their ideas of what a perfect ceremony and celebration would be and created many of the elements themselves, and the DIY element worked perfectly for them. Their goal was a beautiful day that spoke to who they were as a couple. They were spot on.

So we begin with part 1….

Donna + Dan: Museum of Science Wedding

Working with Donna and Dan was a blast from the initial meeting to their engagement session in Charlestown to the rehearsal dinner and, at last, the big day itself. Donna has a laugh and smile that is absolutely infectious and Dan has a warm easy way about himself. Though I knew Donna and Dan pretty well by their wedding weekend, the toasts of friends and family both nights were such fun and full of enlightening stories. These two have just the right chemistry – yes, that’s an awful pun based on the Museum of Science backdrop for the wedding reception and, no, I am not sorry  :) – to endear themselves to everyone they meet.

Sally + Dave: OceanCliff Wedding

If you choose a holiday weekend for your wedding celebration, you know your guests will already be in a festive mood and ready to party. If you choose the weekend following Thanksgiving, you also get the added bonus of getting extra time with family and friends. If you plan a destination wedding that spans two days, you know that you will all be relaxed and immersed in the beauty of the occasion. And so when Sally and Dave spoke to us about their wedding- first an intimate ceremony reception the night after Thanksgiving and then a larger blow-out party the following evening- we knew it would be magic. Not to mention that Sally and Dave exude warmth with their whole beings; you just instantly feel welcomed and embraced by them. And so we began as lucky photographers to Day 1 of this amazing celebration….

Tracey + Joel: Inspiration & Details from a Boston Harbor Hotel Wedding

Probably the moment of  Tracey and Joel’s wedding that will always stick with me is her expression when she walked into the Wharf Room and saw the amazing-ness created by Gregory and his team at Flou(-e)r. She had wanted floral magic and she got it. She had these ideas about the guest card table, something about a flower hedge, and he made it happen. And then there was this crazy cool chandelier of flowers over the dance floor. It was all truly stunning. And when Tracey walked in I could see how everything was exactly what she had dreamed of for her special day.

But let’s begin at the beginning….

Gatsby-esque Inspiration

Details, details, details. Oh and lots of delicious food.

Once the reception got started, Mollie and Matt’s stamp could be seen from every vantage point. The way they incorporate their Great Gatsby-esque theme was to infuse the day with gilded style.

The perfect pair welcomed their guests with a delicous bite of fruit.

At each setting a menu with their brand.

Guests were seated in multiple spaces throughout the mansion.

One couldn’t forget that fall was in the air when stepping outside on the Grand Allee.

Did I mention the food? Tables of Content did an outstanding job with presentation and taste. A few morsels from the cocktail hour.

Can’t forget the band. This party was a ton of fun. Mollie even mentioned that the funniest moment was, "The Maid of Honor having a dance off with the band’s lead singer." What a great crew!

Floral Artistry

This past September, I had the pleasure of working with Mimosa on a table top design they created for Grace Ormonde Wedding Style Magazine. I arrived early to help determine the best spot for the table with regards to lighting. So I was able to watch Teresa Fung and her talented team work. Oh my! What a treat. They are such artists, only instead of painting with oils or watercolors, they paint in three dimentions with flowers and plants, with linens and tableware. As they were working, I observed and I documented; I was captivated.

Our story starts at Mistral Restaurant, the location for our shoot. Their very chic private events space and wine room was the backdrop for the table.

grace-ormonde-tabletop-mimosa-style- mistral restaurant rehearsal dinner venue, boston ma

Teresa had already prepped some of the floral before she arrived. In particular, the very time intensive work of attaching orchids to willow branches.

grace-ormonde-tabletop-mimosa-style- orchids on willow branches- floral design with pink and white- mistral, boston, massachusetts

Some pieces had to be assembled on site. I was fascinated by these clear gelatinous balls that are nearly clear when you add water.

They allowed plants, such as these succulents, to appear as if they were floating in a glass vase.

grace-ormonde-tabletop-mimosa-style- purple and blue succulent suspended in glass container for floral design arrangement- boston ma

So creative, this design used glass candelabras as containers for floral.

Teresa is very hands-on. She would look at the design from every angle and make adjustments to the flowers or the linens or the glassware, seeking perfection.

grace-ormonde-table-top-mimosa-style-1

Even the tiniest details were thought of. These miniature flowers were strung around tall vases.

Pinks of all shades.

Love the burgundy calla lily on the square plate. (Idea for Valentine’s Day?)

Gorgeous. Gorgeous flowers.

grace-ormonde-tabletop-mimosa-style- pink flowers- intimate wedding venue- mistral- boston ma

Even the linens had a floral feel. And Teresa had two options so that she could see how the whole look came together- one lavender and one this deeper fuchsia color.

Another look as the pieces are coming together.

Sometimes it just takes four hands to get the flowers to cooperate.

And finally, everything is complete. Simply magical. Love the arch and how it frames the candles and softens the wall in the background.

Romantic glassware.

The vision. I couldn’t get over how beautiful this was. I know I would feel immensely special eating a meal at such a beautiful table.

Flowers and Food with Flare

If you loved all the varied uses of pinks from Maren and Steve’s "Special Touches," just wait til you see their flowers. All of the texture and softness and beauty. Plus, I am adding a bonus to spark your appetite with some of my favorite food images.

Part 2- Flowers and Food

First the flowers, pinks perfect for a summer wedding.

Loving the lushness of our bride’s bouquet. And check out our groom’s boutonniere.

The walk down the aisle was just perfect with these flower baskets hanging from the seats.

They brought the pails from the ceremony to place on the cocktail hour tables.

The dinner setting was just perfect. Some tables had tall centerpieces, some with petite centerpieces, all set off by the crystal chandeliers.

One of the tall centerpieces. The use of greens and whites add depth to the arrangement.

Along the fireplace, the bride’s and bridesmaids’ bouquets were placed in glass vases tied with pink ribbons.

And now for a few sweet, yummy morsels. Maren’s caterer- Blue Rocks Catering- was fantastic. The food both looked and tasted (what we were able to enjoy) amazing!

Oh and her beautiful cake. A perfect combination of the food and the flowers!
