Yu, Chris, and their fabulous gal squad had a parade in the rain to celebrate their Boston City Hall wedding!
Luxi and Kenny met while both studying at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York 5 years ago. They were friends first, but not for long. They graduated, moved around the country for different jobs, and have been traveling back and forth to visit each other long distance from Pennsylvania —> Boston. They’re self-proclaimed nerds (and both super smart chemists), love hiking, snuggling on the couch watching tv together, being silly, and eating Chinese food.
Kenny proposed on their trip to Yellowstone last May, and they knew they wanted to have a low-key celebration in Boston. Kenny’s cousin traveled from upstate New York, his mom traveled from Puerto Rico, and Luxi’s parents flew in from China! They were so proud to incorporate both their cultures - Kenny wore a red tie (for good luck in Chinese culture) and flag pins from both their countries. Luxi swapped out her American wedding dress for a Chinese one, along with gold rings in the shape of a phoenix and a dragon, believed to be good luck and signify a marriage filled with unity, harmony, and balance.
Here’s to staying silly, remaining in harmony, and exploring every single national park together!
Félicitations and felicidades to Ariane + David = the most perfect French + Chilean pair to ever get married in the beautiful city of Boston. They love their little backyard in the South End, where David proposed to Ariane on a perfect sunny day at home with their cats. They love going on long walks when the weather is nice, so they chose to do just that on their wedding day! From Boston City Hall (where Ariane loved officiant Maureen’s antique typewriter) to the Boston Public Garden all the way to the Esplanade where they popped a French bottle of champagne.
"You're the salt to my vinegar, the almond butter to my jelly, the lime to my tequila..."
They compliment each other in the best of ways: ramen for Nichole, Thai for Kass. Wine for Nichole, whiskey for Kass. Nichole's shopping weakness are candles, Kass's are shoes.
After almost 4 years and a sweet, sweet proposal at their home in February, these two said I DO! With lots of tears + tissues obvi. Their vow books matched the baby blue painted iron of the bridge over the Boston Public Garden pond, and they got married on the same day that famous swans Romeo & Juliet were released into the park for the summer season. Could you ask for any more perfect, romantic timing!?
We all prepared for pouring rain, and instead the universe gave us a beautiful Boston day. These two have been through a lifetime of ups and downs together already, in sickness and health, and truly cherish every moment with each other. Here’s to the new B Family!!! xox
Wani & Oscar had an incredible, emotional Boston City Hall wedding - they cried during their vows, exchanged sparkly rings, took the T to Beacon Hill, got scolded by a security guard at the MA State House, ran into a co-worker, froze their fingers off for the name of love and photography, and ended at their favorite cafe in the whole wide world: Tatte.
Amanda & Trent will tickle you pink with their Boston City Hall wedding on Valentines Day! They tied the knot in their favorite city before catching a flight just two hours later to their honeymoon in New Orleans!⠀
Their ceremony and some of their portraits afterwards were actually filmed by an NBC news crew... not sure if we ever made it on TV, but you bet we were excited!
Amanda sported the FLUFFIEST pink coat with a perfectly matching lace belt and the most adorable vintage kitten heels. Trent came in blazing with maroon trousers, floral tie, and tan jacket. FASHION ICONS!!!⠀
These two bonded over their love of vinyl records and live music three years ago, and now live together with their happy, quirky family.
Three cheers for Shanna & Ricky’s Boston City Hall wedding!
Ricky is a navy photojournalist stationed on the USS George Washington in Japan, "Where he is busy saving the world from deadly tsunamis and finding pirates. Then he photographs them.” Originally from LA, West Coast met East Coast, in the form of Miss Shanna from Connecticut.
Shanna is a nursing student in Boston studying to be a nurse/midwife, and working on a side project with a professor on an app that will assist nurses in emergency rooms help victims of sexual assault. She loves helping others, baking, learning... what a girl.
Married on the first day of Spring (which, for Boston of course, never feels too springy), these two were such a joy to photograph.
It was a rather warm day for the middle of January, a rather beautiful day in my favorite section of Boston. Ashley & Chase, accompanied by their parents, were married in a little blue room in City Hall. It only took a few minutes of the speedy ceremony to shed tears, but they both smiled through it all.
Signed, sealed, delivered... and Ashley & Chase began their forever.
We adventured outside downtown, and it began to snow - so perfect, as they're having a destination wedding in Florida, so a New England flurry was exactly what they wanted. I love the look in Ashley's eyes when she looks at Chase: and nobody makes Chase smile bigger than when Ashley is by his side. He spun her around in her beautiful dress in the middle of Congress Street as the cars honked at the beautiful couple. By the end of our shoot, the sun was shining bright as ever.
