More from Amy and Phil’s wedding because there really were so many beautiful images. Their ceremony, for instance, spoke to the story of their relationship, with special mention of how Phil won over Amy. These personal touches brought smiles…
And laughter as Phil wiped away Amy’s tears.
They also took the opportunity to hold each others’ hands during the ceremony.
And sealed it with a kiss.
Lots of smiles and cheers as they exited the church.
After family portraits and a tea ceremony at the church, we continued to the Black Swan Country Club, where they would host their reception. They wanted a few more portraits on the golf course, so we started with those.
The stone wall separating the greens is very New England.
Loving the reaction of the bridal party to this kiss.
Inside, Amy changes so she would have just the right outfit for their first dance, a beautifully choreographed number. Of course, that also meant opportunities for portraits of the couple prior to their entrance.
As they were being introduced, the bridesmaids and groomsmen had a special dance of their own for Amy and Phil.
Oh the fun moves in this dance. Spinning…
After the Best Man’s toast which spoke to all of the things that make Phil, Phil; he was in full smile mode.
Taking his mom for a spin.
Finally the cake cutting. Gotta love this little sweet treat which was situated on top.

Wow! It has been awhile since I have written on the blog. I am hoping to get back on track and I can’t think of a better way to start than with a super fabulous getting ready session at the Liberty Hotel, followed by portraits at the Liberty and around Beacon Hill, and a ceremony at High Rock Church in Arlington. I just finished working on the design of Amy and Phil’s album, so the photos and all of the fun are fresh in my mind, as well.
To kick things off, here’s a ring shot, utilizing the Liberty’s awesome keys.
Up in the bridal suite as Amy was getting ready, I took the opportunity to capture a few of her dress. Loving the view she had. She got to look at the beautiful Boston skyline the whole time she was getting her hair and make-up done.
Before Amy went down to see Phil for the first time on their wedding day, her bridesmaids surrounded her and offered a prayer for her.
On one of the balconies, Phil took a deep breath as he awaited his first look of Amy.
A sweet moment when first they saw each other. The light and shape of the windows in the Liberty offered a beautiful backdrop and opportunity for this silhouette.
We had the bridal party all together so played around with the levels a bit.
In the lobby, a portrait of Amy.
After a few in the hotel, Dave took Amy and Phil out to the streets of Boston, Beacon Hill to be specific.
And along the way they ran into the Bruins‘ celebration. Amy and Phil just happened to be getting married on the day of the Bruins‘ Stanley Cup victory parade, which also happened to be taking place right next to where they were getting ready. It presented some challenges for the day, but also some super fun opportunities.
The streets also offered up a perfectly placed Coke truck.
When they finished with the Boston portraits, everyone headed to the church for the ceremony.
Proud dad with a very happy bride.
More to follow soon from the rest of the ceremony, portraits and the reception at Black Swan Country Club.
