Private Estate Wedding on Boston's North Shore

I knew from our initial meeting together that Jared & Willoughby were going to plan an incredible wedding day, beginning with the location for their celebration. Hosted on Willoughby's family farm, Jared & Will thoughtfully planned their wedding to emphasize and celebrate the beautiful location and the natural beauty that encompassed the area, something very important to them. They also wanted to ensure that their guests were given a meaningful and memorable experience. Working with the amazing team at Chive Events they pulled together a breathtaking celebration that focused on sustainable and locally sourced details. From the florals to the the food and even the wine served throughout the day, each detail was thoughtfully and carefully chosen for a specific reason. 

That is the kind of people Jared & Willoughby are. A couple who are independent and unique in their own right and together bring a sense of purpose and authenticity to whatever situation they are in. I greatly appreciated the thought and care they placed on their wedding day and how they communicated to their guests what this day meant to them as a couple. It was a day to celebrate and bring together their families and loved ones and honor their respective family heritage. 

For example, Willoughby wore a family heirloom, her wedding gown. She was the 12th Bride to wear the beautiful gown that has been passed down through the generations from the 19th century. Jared excitedly and ceremoniously cut the wedding cake with a family sword. Willoughby's parents hosted the event on their farm, a piece of property that has been in the family for generations. How meaningful to have so many pieces of family history!!

Willoughby & Jared, thank you for entrusting us to document this special day -- it was incredible!! Enjoy some of my favorite images!!

Mandarin Oriental Boston Wedding | Younes & Alyssa

Admittedly I had been looking forward to Younes & Alyssa's wedding all year. Ever since I first met them for their engagement session this past winter, I knew that their wedding day was going to be one for the books. Every detail came together perfectly. The Mandarin Oriental did an amazing job of hosting their incredible day and made everyone feel welcome and taken care of.

But more than the details, it was a day of two families from across the world coming together, united through love. It was incredible to watch as Younes & Alyssa promised forever together, while watching their parents look on with amazement. The day they had dreamed of for their children was here -- and Younes & Alyssa couldn't have been happier!!

Both Younes and Alyssa have amazing style so it was no surprised that their details were perfection, from Alyssa's beautiful lace Romona Keveza dress to the tastefully decorated ballroom. They hosted their wedding in downtown Boston offering their guests, many who had never been to Boston before a classic experience. 

Thank you Younes & Alyssa for inviting us to be a part of your day -- we had an amazing time documenting every moment and I hope that these images provide you with many happy memories for years to come!!

Summer Wedding at Misselwood Estate at Endicott College

Lauren & Mike had a quintessential New England summer day for their wedding at Misselwood Estate earlier this month. Not a cloud in the sky with a cool breeze that drifted off the water's edge. Lauren and Mike had planned their wedding from Virginia and with the help of Lauren's Mom, every detail came together perfectly on the day of their wedding.

Misselwood Estate is a special place - tucked away on the coast of Beverly it offers spectacular views of Beverly and Salem Harbor and the coastline of Marblehead. For these two, the ocean plays a big part in their relationship and lives (they even named their dog Salty, love it!), so being right on the water was the perfect setting for their wedding. Plus it was a wonderful introduction to New England for their out of state guests. 

Lauren & Mike, thank you for inviting my team to be a part of your incredible day. We loved celebrating with you and your loved ones and I hope that these images will serve as precious memories to you in the years to come!! Enjoy some of my favorites!!
