Boston Public Library Wedding :: Boston Wedding Photographer :: Jessica + Scott (Part I)

Do I have a treat for you today?! And tomorrow! It's the most beautiful wedding at the Boston Public Library!!! I know Jessica and Scott have been waiting patiently to see their pictures so I'm just going to jump straight in and get to it!

Jessica and the girls got ready at the Westin Copley Hotel, love her Sottero & Midgley gown:

Jessica works at Tiffany & Co. Let's just say there was some of the most beautiful jewelry at the wedding and that the bridesmaid gifts were pretty awesome!

Adored the flowers. I wish we had smellovision on the blog as Jessica's bouquet had the most amazingly fragrant flowers. All flowers by Joseph Cardalisco:

Chooooo chooooooo! You might be thinking "Wow! Beautiful Jimmy Choo shoes but I bet Jessica kicked them off for dancing!!" and you would be wrong. I shall prove this to you in part II of this blog post ;)

I have major ring envy over Jessica's yellow diamond Tiffany engagement ring. Paul - if you're reading this (you check my blog every day right?), it's our 5 year wedding anniversary next week and the official 5-year gift is yellow diamonds....

Scott was getting ready with the guys over at the Fairmont Copley but he stopped by the Westin to open his gifts from Jessica:

The Ultimate hair and make up dream team were in attendance. I've said it before and I'll say it again but I would guess that hair and make up run late at around 70% of weddings causing stress, cutting short the time you have for photography and even making you incur overtime/late fees with transportation. So when I see that Joanne from and Lena from are listed as fellow wedding vendors I heave a huge sigh of relief. I know that everyone will look and feel absolutely beautiful and they'll be ready on time. Hoorah. Here's Lena putting the finishing touches to Jessica's hair. I think Jessica might have been a ballerina in another life...

Time to get dressed!

I had the talented Matt Grazier of Grazier Photography as my second shooter for this wedding. Matt hung with the guys as they got ready and the next two images are his:

Back with the girls, everyone was ready on time and Jessica made a toast to her closest friends:

Really Jessica? Really?

The 2012 wedding season has been remarkably kind to my couples in terms of weather but alas, on Jessica & Scott's wedding day the heavens opened. On the plus side, if you have to have your wedding indoors there really isn't a more beautiful venue in Boston than the Boston Public Library. It was a little too early to head to the library so we figured we'd walk over to the Fairmont Copley Hotel where Scott was getting ready for the first look. Incidentally, the Fairmont Copley is another one of my favorite Boston wedding venues, **here's** a wedding I photographed there last year. Amy is Jessica's best friend and maid of honor and she helped keep Jessica out of the rain on the way over: Very sweet first look: Matt's image is on the left below:

When I posted this sneak peek on my facebook page (which you REALLY should like if you want to see more pictures - maybe I'll put up some sneak peeks of Jess & Scott's photobooth pictures there...) I had a message from someone asking me if this was a real wedding, they thought I'd hired Jessica and Scott as models...!

Here come the groomsmen:

Work it Jessica:

Although it was POURING down at this point we used the sheltered Courtyard of the Boston Public Library for wedding party and family pictures. I may have gotten completely soaking wet but it was all good :) Loved the bridesmaid dresses by Jasmine Belsoie:

Most stylish wedding party award goes to...

Suits by Vera Wang

Time for a wedding! Matt took this one:

Jessica descended the grand staircase on the proud arm of her father:

How happy are the newlyweds? :)

Did you enjoy? This is just a tiny fraction of the fabulous wedding, more on my facebook page and just wait until part II which is coming up soon....

  1. The pictures are beautiful! I'm looking into having a wedding at Boston Public Library, but i'm concerned about parking and finding a reasonably priced hotel in Boston. Do you know what the bride and groom did, and if so, would they recommend it? Thanks!
