Sometimes you find a $5 blue suede jacket at Goodwill that fits one of your bffs perfectly, so you bedazzle it and head out to the desert to fight some dragons.
I literally gasped as I walked in to Belle Mer and saw Elina's dress hanging up. The rest of the day completely followed suit. Jeremy and Elina had such a STUNNING, dreamy day. Belle Mer is obviously a beautiful venue, but Elina's touches of soft pinks and gold really brought everything to another level. They said their vows infront of a perfect sunset over the water. In addition to such a beautiful day, they wanted to make sure that all of their guests were having fun the whole time. They had an amazing sushi bar for cocktail hour, with a live jazz band and a caricature artist! As the dancing really started to kick up, the cigar rolling stationed opened up. The view was so gorgeous as the bridge lit up and everyone gathered around the fires to enjoy a cigar or take a break from dancing.
This was just such a cool wedding and Sarah and Dave really know how to throw a party! They wanted to have a relaxed, fun day that all their friends could have a great time at and they totally accomplished that! The Audubon Center was such a rad venue. I have never been so close to a Bald Eagle before! They also hand made almost everything! Dave made all of the yard games by hand and all of their signs were cut and painted by them. Instead of a wedding cake they bought various pies and cakes and had catering done by the amazing Pennypackers. For favors they made heart shaped bird treats and made a donation to the Audubon Society. My favorite detail was that Sarah actually grew all the flowers in her garden and made the arrangements themselves. How awesome is that?
John and Victoria came to Boston for the week. John wanted to show her all the most picturesque parts of the city and had me waiting at Acorn St. Rain and thunder had been predicted, but the skies remained clear for him to pop her the question. As stopped her to tell her that he loved her, a small crowd noticed that I was taking their picture and stopped to watch. He got down on one knee and got an emotional and beautiful yes!
I have been friends and roommates with Chris . We've known each other for years and you could tell something came alive in him when he met Aly. These two are perfect for each other (and not just because they are both super tall!). They make each other genuinely happy and how much they care about each other is completely evident. About 8 months ago Chris sent me a photo of one of the most gorgeous rings I've ever seen saying that he had put a deposit down on it. I screamed when he asked me if I would photograph him proposing to Aly and was so excited. The thing is, because I knew these two, I had to be much more commando, as I usually just pose as a tourist taking photos.They got a totally sweet sunset and before he got on one knee, Chris had to tell Aly to let go of him because she was hugging him so tight. They just love being around each other and are totally magnetic. So much joy and love between them the entire time. It was so so awesome and it was honor to be a part of it.
