Hello! Did you think I'd disappeared? It gets a little quiet on the blog at this time of year as most people want to wait for warmer weather before they get married or take engagement pictures. What's with that? Let's start a campaign for more winter weddings! Snow! Twinkly lights! Stoles and fur and pashminas! Hot toddy signature cocktails! Take the wedding I'm about to share with you right now - it was the epitome of timeless Boston elegance. I also went a little picture heavy so go get yourself a hot chocolate while the images load up :)
If you're getting married in the winter you have to remember that it's often dark by 4pm. Katherine and Greg wisely chose to do a first look and see each other before their ceremony. Awesome for the following reasons:
- We had daylight for pictures and could take advantage of the stunning courtyard of the Boston Public Library
- All of the formal pictures are taken early when hair and make up are perfect
- In the craziness of the wedding day when you're pulled in a million different directions it's nice to have a little quiet time together
- Best of all, once you're officially married you go and enjoy a glass of champagne and hors d'oeuvres with your closest friends and family vs. spending your first hour as newlyweds posing for pictures!
Petalena incorporating tiny paper flowers made of pages from Pride & Prejudice in the bouquets - perfect for a library wedding!
Katherine and Greg entered along the book-lined gallery and went into their (perfectly choreographed) first dance followed by parent dances:
Katherine & Greg - what a BLAST your wedding was!!! From your NYC engagement shoot in the hottest conditions known to mankind to your chilly but warm-hearted perfect Boston winter wedding it's been such a pleasure getting to know you both. Both of your families were so welcoming and happy for you both and your friends definitely know how to party! Wishing you a lifetime of love, laughter, health and happiness!
Oh go on then...a late night picture outside to end on:
