Katherine and Steve planned a beautiful Gardens at Elm Bank wedding this past fall.

This crisp, fall day was everything these two dreamed about when planning their wedding at the Gardens at Elm Bank. Katherine and Steve wanted a first look before the wedding, which is always a great way to break the tension of the day and also to knock out some family and wedding party portraits before the ceremony begins. The bride and bridesmaids were getting ready at Katherine’s parents’ house, so we decided on using the backyard for the first look.  Steve’s jaw dropped as soon as he saw his bride. The perfect first look response!

The rest of the day went just as smooth. After the beautiful ceremony at St. John’s in Wellesley, we were off to the Gardens at Elm Bank for bridal party portraits, dinner and dancing. The Massachusetts Horticultural Society has done an amazing job with Elm Bank. There are endless wedding photography opportunities around the many different gardens and pathways. The photo above, with the bride and groom walking down the path, was one of my favorites of the whole wedding season. The last colors of fall on the trees, the beautiful afternoon light and a couple in love all came together in this image.

The wedding reception was just as fantastic. The Sultans of Swing were in full form, getting everyone up on the dancefloor the entire night. As the last wedding of the year, it really ended on a high note. Below are some of my favorite images from this day.

Susan and Stephen planned a fantastic Wychmere Beach Club wedding in Cape Cod this past summer.

Ashley and I got to spend the day with these two and document this incredible wedding. It was a great weekend. We took an extra day to get down to Cape Cod early so we wouldn’t have the long drive in the morning before the wedding. Ashley always finds the best little inns and we watched the sunset from the beach in Chatham.

This Cape Cod wedding had it all: beautiful couple, perfect weather, amazing venues, photos on the beach AND photos on a baseball field. It was an absolute pleasure photographing this wedding. Our friend and colleague, Meghan from KG Events and Design, was the maid of honor. It’s always exciting to see a wedding planner put down the clipboard and pick up the bouquet.

The wedding reception at the Wychmere Beach Club was delightful as always. Susan and Stephen got a brilliant sunset followed by an energetic welcome to kick off their reception. Below you’ll find some of our favorite images.

Emily and Karlek planned a beautiful wedding at Royal Sonesta Cambridge.

Ashley and I didn’t get a chance to meet Emily and Karlek until their wedding day. Sometimes work, life and geography get in the way. Luckily we’ve known her family for a while and have photographed a couple of her cousins’ wedding in the past. It’s pretty great to open a hotel door and know half the room already!

This wedding took us from Cambridge to Boston, back to Cambridge. The getting ready and reception were at the Royal Sonesta and the ceremony took place at the Our Lady of Good Voyage parish in the seaport. A beautiful, brand new church, perfect for this wedding. After a lovely ceremony, we got to explore the harbor area behind the courthouse overlooking the city, as well Christopher Columbus Park and the Charles Gate boat house. It’s hard to think of an easier time making portraits on a wedding day.

The reception was an all-out party, as we expected with this family. Love the energy on the dance floor! The Wilson Steven’s band, Signature, was electric from start to finish. For proof of awesomeness, please check out these photos below:

Jenelle and Thomas planned a beautiful wedding at Hyatt Regency Boston Harbor.

It’s fitting that Ashley and I photographed this wedding after our summer travel to Hawaii. We had just spent some time exploring the Big Island and landed about 19 hours before the wedding.  Jenelle and Thomas travel way more than we do and live in Europe. So the majority of the wedding party and the guests all had to travel some distance to Boston for their wedding. It’s also fitting (and convenient) that the Hyatt Regency Boston Harbor is right around the corner from the airport. From the beautiful table centerpieces highlighting the bride and groom’s favorite places, to the complete look of jet lag on my face at the end of the reception, travel was certainly the theme of the day.

Despite the jetlag, Ashley and I were able to tap into the energy from the wedding party to propel us throughout the day. Bride and groom wanted a first look by the harbor so we could have plenty of time for portraits before the ceremony. Everyone wants to get into the cocktail hour ( I don’t blame them), so knocking out portraits beforehand can be very useful. I love that the light and weather worked out for portraits. The view of the city from this spot is pretty great.

One of the perks to the Hyatt Regency Boston Harbor is that everything is right there. The view, the ceremony spot, the lounge area, the tent… everyone is right there. No one is getting lost going to the bar or bathroom. Not even uncle Bob can hide when it’s his turn for a family photo. Seriously love this place. And on this night, as the sun set, the tent emptied and everyone made their way to the water. It was an amazing sun set, just as amazing as Jennelle and Thomas. Congrats!
