A dino-themed Boston Museum of Science Wedding

"Come let me love you, let me give my life to you."

Alia and Austin descended down the escalator to the lower level of the Blue Wing, stealing a kiss while their guests cheered them on. This was their first entrance as husband and wife. They took to the dance floor, as their bridal party looked on with joy in their eyes. Alia’s grandfather nervously picked up the microphone. He looked over to his daughter, Alia’s mother, for reassurance. She reached over and pulled a guitar from the case by her feet. Alia’s mother began to strum, as Alia’s grandfather began to sing: “You fill up my senses, like a night in a forest, like the mountains in springtime, like a walk in the rain…”

Alia and Austin interlocked their fingers, pulling each other close. They slowly swayed, as their family serenaded them to John Denver’s “Annie’s Song.” The room was silent, listening to the duo, with the exception of a few sniffles here and there. As the song ended, her grandfather gave her two thumbs up, as she ran over to give him the biggest hug. “You did great Papa - you did great.”

 

 

Alia and Austin managed to incorporate dinosaurs in every part of their day, whether it was walking down the aisle to the Jurassic Park theme song, to literally strutting around in dinosaur heels all day. Oh, and who can forget their kissing dino cake topper, or more importantly: the dinosaurs that beat extinction and joined the party? They poured themselves into each detail of the day, and enjoyed every last minute of it (and every last bite of their chocolate peanut butter cake).

To road trips, to ups and downs, to love, to snuggles, to MARRIAGE.

A summer, blush-filled Tewksbury Country Club wedding

It's not often that you are presented with rain, sun, wind, and a rainbow on your wedding day, but Megan & Tony sure were!

Wearing her mother's earrings, Megan got ready with her sister, parents, and best friends at her childhood home. Her grandparents lived two doors down, and Megan & Tony bought their first house on the same street. Three generations all on one road! Their mailman was even a guest at the wedding. Family is paramount for Megan & Tony.

On their beautiful July Saturday, they tied the knot at St. Joseph Church in Andover in front of all their friends and family. Before the reception, the newlyweds didn't forget to stop at their home to feed the cats and take a fireball shot ;) They kicked off the party at Tewksbury Country Club and danced the night away, ending the reception with a grand rendition of Piano Man.

Thank you to all the marvelous vendors!
