Boston City Hall may have cancelled their appointment, but the show went on for Katherine & Geoff’s romantic, 1930’s inspired wedding day!
Katherine & Geoff met almost a decade ago in the most random of places - Bloomington, Indiana. Geoff was studying French history and Katherine was studying Russian language and culture - neither of which they utilize for anything but witty dinner conversation. They moved to Boston in 2014 and bought a home together a few years later. They have a “fickle feline overlord” named Beau, who followed Geoff home on his mail route one day. Instant member of the family! They love watching old movies (especially Casablanca), taking walks around the neighborhood hand in hand, exploring new places, dishing about fantasy card games and Star Trek, and trying new recipes.
They had planned a simple City Hall wedding, picked the date, and got it engraved on the inside of their wedding bands… and then they got a call from City Hall cancelling their appointment (and all appointments that day) for meetings. So what did they do? Katherine & Geoff took a deep breath and found another way! Priscilla Geaney is my favorite Justice of the Peace who I’ve worked with over the years at my “big weddings” - so we knew who to call right away!
The weather was slated to pour all day, which it definitely did during their ceremony, but we had a few totally clear hours to shoot around the Boston Public Garden and Beacon Hill (which were EMPTY from the rain!) before heading to Long Wharf to pop a bottle of champagne. Smart cookie Katherine swapped her Jimmy Choo’s for LL Bean boots to walk almost 4 miles around the city! She sported a dress from the 1930’s, and wrapped around her bouquet were her mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and great great grandmother’s wedding rings. Four generations of women! Incredible. They finished with a glass of champagne, sang “Singing In The Rain,” and went home to dry of and feed the cat before their celebratory wedding dinner.
