Nick and Karen. Wedding and Balloons, part deux.

Nick and Karen rock.  So when they had a really, really nice wedding, it was no surprise.  They live in California these days, but they’re from down Boston way.  We shot their engagement shoot when they were in town in July, and we brought lots of balloons.  Karen loves balloons so when Nick proposed to her, he filled their apartment with 1000 balloons.  STOP IT!  Romantic dudes rock.

So, ya.  Here it is.  Their wedding at The Omni Parker House in Boston on a cold and snowy January 2nd, 2010.

enjoy. thank you.

ok, ok, ok...so Nick and Karen wrote their own vows.  They were (gulp) so tender, so sweet, so authentic, and full of so much love. I was straight-up double-pump bawling.

So, Ben never cries at weddings. Maybe it's because dudes don't really cry at weddings. Maybe it's because Ben's heart is made of stone. Either way, Ben admits he got pretty close to choked up during Karen's vows. She thanked Nick for always vacuuming in her vows. It was just so incredibly sweet, he couldn't handle it.
