Janette and Wesley married on a gorgeous summer day in Boston. The sun shone down on them as did the warmth of family and friends who had traveled from near and far.

We started the day with Janette who got ready at the Fairmont Copley Plaza. At first, it was just our bride, her stylist and us. Soon enough, the room was filled with Janette’s sisters who were primping, prepping, and helping.

We all walked through the hotel lobby and across the street to the Trinity Church, where Janette and Wes would get married.

Wes was ready before the ladies and had time for a couple portraits with Dave.

Janette walked down to the theme song of the Princess Bride (definitively one of my favorite movies of all time, can’t help mentioning it). And her dad gave her away with a proud smile. Actually I also love Wesley’s smile; he seems to be bursting with joy in this moment.

I don’t know if I have ever seen such a big smile during communion. Clearly Wes’ mom is happy about this wedding. Love!

During the receiving line, guests- especially little ones- waved streamers in celebration.

Then the bridal party and our bride and groom hopped on the trolley to go to the public garden for portraits.

A bit of romance and sweetness under the willow tree.

And then Janette surrounded by beautiful flowers.

One final image from the public garden. Might be my favorite in a long time. I like the mystery of it.


And I just had to share this one. They (her sisters that is) said she knew how to shop. And this image seems to speak to that in so many ways. I love the feel of it.


And fear not, there are tons more from this beautiful Copley Square wedding! Check back soon.
