Jen and Spaits: Married at Lars Anderson Park in Brookline

After ten years as a wedding photographer, there is nothing I love more to see than a couple doing their wedding *truly* THEIR way.  If you’re planning a wedding you know it’s all a very slippery slope.  It’s hard to question every little tradition to see if it’s really you, there’s a wave to it all, and it’s easy to be swept up in the tradition, the fairy tale of it all.

Jen and (Matt) Spaits did their wedding in their way, through and through.  They got ready together in their apartment with their cats and dogs as a big part of the festivities.  They got married around the corner at the absolutely gorgeous Lars Anderson Park surrounded by a handful of family and a few friends.  They had their reception at their favorite Mexican joint in Union Square in Somerville.  Everyone ordered off the menu, they got drunk on tequila, they gave me lots and lots of time to photograph them in both locations.  Boom.  This was a no stress, totally beautiful, absolutely perfect representation of two individuals and a couple.  I absolutely fucking loved it.  Enjoy. Thank you both Jen and Spaits.  Good luck, guys.  Peace and love!

Marni and Erik: Married in Rhode Island: Aldrich Mansion and Beavertail State Park

Talk about a fairy tale of a weddin!   Marni and Erik live in Manhattan, and knew about Beavertail State park from an adventure they took to get out of the city.   Not that anyone cares, but Beavertail State Park just so happens to be my favorite place in Rhode Island. By a landslide.  It’s a gorgeous, beaver tail shaped peninsula (get it?) surrounded by craggy rocks and cliffs, tide pools, and private tiny tucked away beaches.  It’s absolutely stunning.   Marni and Erik bussed their guests in to this gorgeous little, tucked away spot there to tie the knot.  Their wedding day was a downright pristine day in August so it was really pretty.  Then the party was at Aldrich Mansion in Warwick, RI.  Think Rockefeller type stuff on rolling green grounds.  Beyond beautiful.   Though they met in Manhattan, Erik is from Sweden so there was all sorts of Swedish drinking games and traditions which added to the fun.  A wedding a girl dreams of, no doubt.   Enjoy! Thank you!  GOOD LUCK!  LOVE!!!

Derek and Steph: Engaged at The Arboretum in Boston

Don’t be mad at this couple.  I know they have no body fat, but you’d still like them a lot.   Derek is a trainer at Barry’s Bootcamp in Boston where people run faster than Wylie Coyote on meth, but on a treadmill.  Uphill.   Steph is a manager at the new Barry’s location, but she and Derek met when she was just a mere coyote on a treadmill.:)  They’re getting married in November, and I’m truly *honored* that I’ll be there for them.  This is the nicest, most low key, sweetheart of a couple.  I’m so so so happy they’ve found each other.   Yay Love!

Claire and Peter: Married at the Bohlin Center, Newport, RI

Claire and Peter got married on an incredibly beautiful Saturday in May…which is weird since it was the ONLY nice day in the whole month, I think!  Their ceremony and reception was at the reeeeally awesome Bohlin Center in Newport surrounded by really nice zillionaire yachters!  Whoop whoop.

If I wrote for five hours I wouldn’t be able to explain how insanely nice, low key, humble, smart, kind, and gorgeous this couple is.  We 100% didn’t get to know them before the wedding, but watching them on their day and together, and with their awesome friends and family, we got a glimpse.  Both are from Dorchester, one as cool and nice as the other, and truly with the nicest families and friends.  Ben and I walked away from their day feeling a general hopefulness for the whole wide world.  I love when love can do that.

Thank you to both of you.  We wish you nothing but love and beauty in your lives.  No doubt you’ll have both in spades.  Peace.
