Scott and Wayne’s wedding in Harvard Square was so special to be a part of. They started their day getting ready at the Charles Hotel, then walking to their wedding ceremony at Memorial Church right in Harvard Yard. Before heading in to the church, we stopped briefly by the tree where they got engaged and they had a sweet, quiet moment together. I loved that they chose to walk down the aisle together as they entered, and stopped briefly again to look at all the beaming faces of the guests that had come to celebrate and support them. There were a lot of things that I loved about the day – that Scott and Wayne both played a piece on the piano during their ceremony, that they had a pinata filled with candy in lieu of a cake, and that they and their guests really livened up the reception with their dancing! With the help of Gracie Lou Events, their day came together seamlessly.

Jamie and Phil decided to start off their engagement session at Amorino, a gelato cafe on Newbury Street. They got engaged in Cinque Terre, after all, so it was only fitting for them to incorporate some of Italy into their shoot and spend some time reminiscing (not that anyone ever needs an excuse to stop for gelato!). We then strolled down Commonwealth Avenue towards Copley Square and got some last shots at the Public Garden. I had such a lovely time with these two and can’t wait for their wedding at Le Meridien in Cambridge this fall!

Alexis and Will were married on a beautiful day at the Hawthorne Hotel in Salem at the end of May. They chose to see each other prior to the ceremony and picked The House of Seven Gables garden as their first look location – what fun! Their ceremony was intimate and personal, with Will’s sister officiating, and for the reception they filled the space with pink and gold details that just made the evening so elegant. I couldn’t have asked for a more lovely day with more lovely people! Also – ending the night with whoopie pies is never a bad idea. ;) Here are my favorites from their day!
