We get to see all kinds of weddings, for sure, from the most minimal- a couple at city hall– to the most extravagant- a bride and groom with huge numbers of guests in grand venues– and everything in between. And we enjoy them all; the beauty in each truely comes down to the people involved. When Meagan contacted me, I was very excited. You see, Meagan was referred to us by her friend Leigh-Ann, who also happens to be our friend and a wedding industry peer so we knew Meagan would be fantastic to work with. She and Chris and their wonderful families did not disappoint. And their intimate wedding was absolutely beautiful.

Meagan and Chris had been engaged for awhile, but hadn’t gotten very far into the wedding planning, until this spring, that is. At which point, they decided not to mess around and scheduled the date for early June. They planned a small ceremony at her parent’s home in Beacon Hill, with portraits to follow in the Public Garden, and then dinner at a favorite restaurant. The whole feel of the evening was warm, loving, bright.

Meagan arrived at the ceremony on foot. Calm, at ease, and joyful.

She entered the living room where their guests were gathered. Some stood, some made themselves comfortable on the couches and chairs.

I found myself completely caught up in the meaning of the ceremony, truly listening and feeling the impact of the moment.

The kiss and the applause.

And the hugs and the tears. Pretty much everyone was in tears.

Meagan definitely thought about the details and they seemed to match her sophisticated taste to a tee. Her J.Crew wedding dress was modern and chic; her bouquet of cream roses with touches of whites and greens was the perfect accent.

Following the ceremony, we took a few portraits in the condo.

I love the moment just before the kiss.

Then we ventured down to the Boston Public Garden.

The big tree in the back and the way Meagan casually holds her dress gives this one an old world romantic feel.

I am thinking these tourists definitely got their money’s worth from their Duck Boat adventure.

We went back up to the flat to hang out for a bit before dinner.

The yummy looking cake. Mmm…. I think I am getting hungry.

Then over to the Beacon Hill Hotel & Bistro for dinner.
