We have had a whirlwind start to wedding season and we are so excited to start sharing the images from these fabulous celebrations. Lisa and Scott were our opening duo. And what an amazing way to kick things off!
We met Lisa and Scott a little over a year ago and learned a bit more when we met up with them last summer. Their wedding plans were so exciting. Lisa is Chinese so they wanted to make sure to honor her family traditions with a tea ceremony and lion dancers. And Scott is Jewish; they chose to honor his heritage with the glass stomping tradition as well as the horah. This mix was pleasantly familiar to Dave and I. We could completely understand Lisa’s excitement for the Hora and Scott’s for the lion dancers.
The Boston Hyatt Regency in downtown Boston was the backdrop for most of the day. Before Lisa could get in her dress, she sent her bridesmaids off with a special gift for Scott. And as it happens, he had a wonderful treat for her as well. His groomsmen delivered gifts which were hints to something bigger still to come- first a hat, then a canteen, and finally a guide book to Morocco. Wow! Scott and Lisa had planned to go to Paris for their honeymoon, but Scott added something extra to their special trip. Lisa was completely surprised.
The girls then ventured to Lisa’s fabulous suite to get dressed.
Up on the 20-something-th floor, what an amazing view of the city! Had to juxtapose the Cinderella shoes with the On-Top-of-the World view- picture perfect.
Then Lisa and Scott were ready to catch their first sight of each other all gussied up in their wedding attire.
Dave and I LOVE this moment. Scott is such a gentleman- considerate and thoughtful at all times. So it was all too perfect, that he was there to help his bride with her bustle. How sweet is that!
We took a quick jaunt over to the Boston Public Gardens for photos.
And Lisa and Scott had a few moments alone.
Back at the hotel, the tea ceremony…
followed by the American ceremony. Lisa and Scott entered to a string quartet.
And a couple of the many wonderful moments from the ceremony…
This wedding was truly amazing. And there are tons more images to share, so definitely check back for more. In the meantime, if you want to get to know Scott and Lisa a little better check out their New York City engagement session post and slideshow.
