Last night, I had the pleasure of sharing the photos from Becky and Neil’s wedding with them. It was such fun catching up, hearing about their Hawaii honeymoon adventures, and of course, reminiscing about their day as we looked through the photos. And what a day it was! You know it’s good times when scientists get married at a science museum.

First of all, there is romance. The Washburn Pavilion let in beautiful afternoon light and provided views of the Charles River as Becky and Neil exchanged their vows.

Their parents and friends were alternating between smiles and tears. And sometimes both.

Becky and Neil chose red, black and white for their colors- formal with a splash of fun. They also happen to be the colors of the Museum of Science, a very nice tie-in. The bridesmaids carried bouquets of red roses and wore red sashes.

Loving this moment just before the kiss. Such joy!

Then there is the fun- it’s a museum and a fun one! I mean, really, what could be better than a museum that has stairs that play music?

After the ceremony, we took a quick tour of the museum to capture some portraits of Becky and Neil in and among the exhibits. Our first stop was the dinosaurs, but on the way, I wanted to capture Becky and Neil in the midst of it all.

We just had to play around with this big ole dinosaur. This reminds of the TV show Land of the Lost.

And then of course, there was this super cool physics machine/toy and the sky at dusk.

When we returned, it was time for the reception. Becky and Neil kicked things off with their first dance. They were great. They took lessons and had the dance choreographed; they totally sold the dance with their energy and connection to each other.

Their guests were understandably mesmerized.


Becky’s maid of honor toasted the couple…

And brought tears to Becky’s eyes.

Enjoying a moment with her parents.

At their sweetheart table, they steal a kiss.

As Becky danced with her father, her mom watched on.

Becky had a very special treat for Neil. Becky had actually sung with the band they hired for their wedding a couple times.

So she decided to serenade Neil with a special song. How cool is that!

For us, the evening came to a close after her song. What a treat it was to be able to spend this day with Becky and Neil. To our newlyweds- you guys are fabulous and your friends and family are lovely. What a truly wonderful day it was! We are so grateful we could be there to document it for you.
