Amanda and Ed are both scientists, but they do not fit the mold the word conjures up. Of course, I never saw either of them in their lab jackets, but still… As a couple, they are sweet, romantic, in tune with each other. As individuals, they are intelligent, creative, talented. Their wedding day brought together their style, their love of family, and their connection to Boston.
Talented? Case in point. Ed carved this traditional Welsh lovespoon himself; it’s all from one piece of wood. Typically this is given earlier in the relationship, but Ed’s gift on their wedding morning couldn’t have been more sweet or more appreciated. We included the engagement ring in the photo, another very special gift.
And the wedding ringshot on the Globe.
And now to Ed, during his getting ready at the Copley Plaza. Did I mention his sense of humor?
The gents took the stairs down to the Oak Room, for a toast before the ceremony.
A good opportunity for a portrait of our dashing groom.
Meanwhile, the ladies were still getting ready. Dani Wagener provided her expertise for Amanda’s make-up.
Such intricate and beautiful detailing.
Amanda is a classic beauty; she chose to keep her personal style natural, simple, elegant. It was perfect for her.
The ladies also enjoyed a toast before the ceremony.
Her church is across the square and she can see it from the window. Getting ready for her big day, she looks out.
The ceremony in the Gordon Chapel of the Old South Church had a very intimate feel. I also especially liked the Gothic look of the space as it reminded of Duke, where Amanda went to school (about 10 years after me).
They included readings by friends.
Afterwards we took portraits in and around the church and on the square lawn. A casual bridal party shot.
A classic bride and groom (aka husband and wife) portrait.
More to come for sure… there were tons of amazing portraits at the Garden and a great party with their wonderful families, so check back soon.
