You wouldn’t know it from the start, but Chris and Gary’s wedding day was not only beautiful but filled with adventure. No this isn’t an adventure they planned, yet one they definitely had a good sense of humor about. But the nature of that won’t be revealed until a later post.

For now, enjoy how come and fun their pre-ceremony time with friends was and then how absolutely beautiful their Catholic ceremony was….

And a quick thank you to all the people who made Chris and Gary’s day so special:

Ceremony Location: St. Mary’s Church / Reception Location: Liberty Hotel / Photography: Allegro Photography / Flowers:Indigo in Charlestown / Invitations: Hello Lucky / Dress: Jim Hjelm (bought it at Kleinfelds in Manhattan) / Bridesmaids: Ann Taylor / Groom’s suit: Custom suit by Alton Lane (Newbury Street, Boston) / Groomsmen Suits: Classic Tux (Newbury Street, Boston) /  Band: The Boston Common Band / Hair/makeup: Salon Zurell (Plantsville, CT) / Bride’s shoes: Jimmy Choo / Gift from groom: Tiffany & Co./ Cake: Amanda Oakleaf Cakes (Chelsea, MA)/ Bridal consulting: Boston Bridal Lounge (Newbury Street, Boston)/ Linens/accessories: Be Our Guest Party Rental / Chair rental: PBD Events

 Chris got ready in their suite at the Liberty Hotel surrounded by friends.

Meanwhile Gary prepped at their Charlestown home, with “help” from his buddies.

As it only takes about 2 seconds for the boys to get ready, I was able to take a few portraits beforehand. It was warm outside, though. Really warm, so we didn’t want the boys to be in the heat for too long. We wanted them looking fresh. This one of Gary on their roof deck.

Then at the church. Our welcoming committee.

Oh so sweet.

And more sweetness during the ceremony.

What’s up next you ask? Portraits, the trip to the Liberty and of course the Reception/Party. Where, oh, where will the adventure be?
