Oh, where to start with this one. I thoroughly enjoy working with all of the couples that I photograph and then there is Libby & Blake. I can't begin to describe how awesome these two are, how wonderful and welcoming their families are and how I'm actually a little sad that they're married as it means I don't get to see them anymore.
Although I was cheered up when I got this email from them the morning after the wedding:
Blake and I are hanging out in the suite just talking about how great last night was, and you were a big part of that! We are so happy that we worked with you but more importantly that we can call you a friend! Thanks again...we are so incredibly happy! We love what you put up on Facebook...awesome!!!

But enough of my ramblings, let's get to the wedding pictures! The Colonnade Hotel in Boston is the perfect wedding venue. I would happily photograph weddings every single weekend at the Colonnade. Gabi, Chef Nick, Selena and the whole Colonnade team are just amazing - here's a little interview I did at the Colonnade a year ago:
Weddings at the Colonnade Hotel, Boston
Gordon Chapel Wedding Pictures - Jessica & Mark
Gordon Chapel Wedding Photographer - Jessica & Jeremiah (note that Jeremiah's father married them so the photography restrictions were lifted ;)
Sometimes couples wonder if seeing each other before the ceremony will take away from the moment in church and I honestly believe it doesn't. The emotions you feel during your wedding ceremony happen because you're standing in front of your friends and family and committing yourselves to each other, not because it's the first time he sees you in a white dress! See below for Blake's huge smile and Libby's teary entrance:
White Label DJs was SO good. Audrey looked at me at one point and said "Wow - he's like an actual DJ, mixing songs instead of just playing from a playlist!" Highly recommend!
