Reed and Stephen: Married in New York City.

Not exactly sure where to begin on this one.  Reed and Stephen…ahhh…ya, they had a really, really, really good wedding weekend.   They invited us for all the weekend festivities so we have a gagillion photos…which we edited down to 30 for you.  Their rehearsal party was at The New York City Yacht Club which doesn’t suck, just in case you weren’t sure.  Their ceremony was at St Thomas Cathedral.  I think Reed chose it because it’s where Mariah Carey had one of her weddings. She didn’t admit to that fact, but I mean, c’mon. And their reception was at The University Club of New York City.  We’re not exactly sure what it takes to be a member there outside of one of your relatives having hitched a ride here on The Mayflower. Ben is white and a dude so he’s pretty much a shoe-in for their next member.  He’s waiting by his mailbox for the welcome letter with his fingers crossed.

aaaaaanyway….

Reed and Stephen?!?!?  Your wedding f#*cking rrrrrrocked.  Your friends, Reed!!?!?!?  RRRRROCK!!!!!! Your friends, Stephen? Well….hey? At least I know their initials, right? And one of ’em made the best toast we’ve ever heard at the rehearsal(kidding!!!!! oxoxox;)).  Your families!?!?! RRRRROCK!!!!!!!!!   Charlie, we straight-up miss you.   We love you guys, we had the best weekend ever,  thank you, thank you, thank you.

Oh, and The Daughter of Design planned this shindig and they’re insaaaaaanely good.  Hire them or perish: www.daughterofdesign.com

Their band was killer and full of a bunch of hot dudes.  What’s not to love: www.thewinnbrothersband.com

Our two friends shot the cocktail party while we shot formals.  They are two of the most talented artists we know and are like way, way, way over qualified to shoot a cocktail party, but they like us so they did it and they did a great job.  Check out their work and support them in any way you can.

Stephen read a poem to Reed at the rehearsal dinner. This is under his arm while he's reading from a poetry book. I think one of my boyfriends did that for me once, but I forget.

Don't worry, I already made fun of them relentlessly. Which will come back to bite me one day when one of them runs the Executive Branch of our government, but it was so easy I couldn't resist.

If you're a girl, and let's face it you probably are, you LOVED Reed's wedding gown. Well, she changed for her after party into this insanely perfect and gorgeous dress. My eyes bleed when I saw it and now they're bleeding again. I also don't hate that phantom fist coming up between Reed's legs. Am I the only one who thinks that's hilarious?

Katie and Farouk: mallied.

Katie and Farouk were married at the mind blowingly gorgeous Turner Hill in Ipswich.  Yowza.  I think it’s our favorite venue to date. (The Cook Islands and The Azores not included).  It was one of those Autumn days around here that started out rainy and cold and nasty, and as soon as their wedding began the sun came out, the clouds parted, and God came down.  No, she didn’t, but we got great pictures!

Katie and Farouk are so incredibly great, their friends and family are kind and generous and fun, their wedding was perfect.  That’s all there is to it.

Thank you to you both.

enjoy.

Connie - Love the shot of the bride walkinig away through the leaves and the image of the girls posing in front of the painting. very whimsical..

Our friends, Christina and Peter: married.

Christina and Peter walked into the studio last year and it felt like they were old friends.  This kind of sentiment, obviously, inspires Ben and I to work even harder because we just like ’em so damn much.  They were both excited to have us as part of their day and braved high winds and pretty chilly temperatures to get great (bare footed) shots on the Atlantic.

They were married in Gloucester at The Ocean View Inn among lots of good friends, good music, and good beer.  rockin.

Thank you, guys.  Enjoy.

Looks to me like someone

Asha & Glen - Love the baby. :-)

Kate and Chris: engaged.

I have known Kate and her rockin’ family  for over 20 years so I was incredibly excited when she asked us to photograph her and Chris’ wedding.  And even more excited when she asked if it would be OK for their three doggies to join us for their engagement shoot.  We had one of those freakishly gorgeous November days at World’s End park in Hingham and had a blast.

We’re so excited for June.  We’ll see you then!

Christine and Mark: wedding.

Christine and Mark were all married up on the rooftop of The Taj on a pretty much perfect October day.  The sun set during their ceremony leaving a gorgeous back light, and later on a moody and dark Newbury Street.  They were so excited about being photographed (right, Mark?) so it was super fun. Might not hurt that Christine is drop dead gorgeous.  Their party rocked.  Little Mermaid dance and all.

Thanks again, guys.  Enjoy.
