Tower Hill Botanic Garden :: Wedding Photography :: Prameela + Geoff (Part I)

Monday, August 30, 2010

I remember the first email I got from Geoff inquiring about my availability to photograph his wedding to Prameela. They were still deciding on a venue and really wanted an outdoor wedding ceremony in Massachusetts without a tent. They finally settled on Tower Hill Botanical Garden in Boylston, MA and what a great choice it was!


But before we get to Tower Hill for the beautiful wedding ceremony in the Secret Garden and the wedding reception in the Orangerie, I'll share a few wedding preparation favorites with you.

I arrived at Prameela's friend Deb's house on the super hot 97 degree Sunday and as I walked in I was greeted by all sorts of cotton reels and sewing accoutrements hanging from the ceiling. I was most excited thinking this was a new wedding tradition for me to document:

As it happens, it was the birthday of one of Deb's daughters (one of Prameela's flower girls) and she'd had a sewing party the day before ;) so not wedding related at all but I still like the picture!

Here is the beautiful wedding invitation, very fitting for an outdoor wedding ceremony:


And of course the wedding dress which was so light and airy:


The time before a wedding can be crazy, busy and even frantic but everything was super calm as Prameela had her make up applied and even the flowergirls got a hint of blush!

Delicate pearl jewelry sent over by Prameela's family in India complimented her dress perfectly:


You'll have to come back on Thursday to see Prameela in her wedding dress and Geoff in his suit as they get married in the secret garden in a beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony but I'll leave you with this last image of the bouquet by Bloomers. I've photographed so many colorful weddings this year but I really don't ever get tired of brightly colored flowers - they pop so nicely in the pictures.

And just wait until you see the tall centerpieces sitting under the glass roof of the Orangerie...
