Ceremony Bridal on FilmJuly 22, 2014

I recently had the pleasure of meeting with the lovely and charming Alix Childs, proprietress of the inspiring Beacon Hill Bridal Boutique, Ceremony.   For weeks following our rendezvous, I found myself daydreaming about her absolutely stunning atelier and the pretties held within.  Rarely have I found myself so enthralled with a retail experience – ladies, make your appointment now.  Alix’s impeccable fashion savvy and her lovely demeanor make the Ceremony experience akin to wedding shopping with your best friend in Paris.  Her years doing branding and PR for J.Crew have definitely honed her vision.2014-06-02_001

Ceremony also features stunning stationery suites…

During our chat, Alix and I realized we used to live on the same street in the West Village of Manhattan.  As she told me, opening Ceremony in Beacon Hill was like coming home to this Boston native.  After spending a morning with her in her beautiful space I must say I really love her definition of home.

In addition to bonding over our mutual love of Claire Pettibone, Delphine Manivet, and Elizabeth Fillmore, Alix and I are both wedding industry working moms.  Her adorable daughter is very lucky to have such a talented and inspiring Mama.

Someday hope my own studio could look half as gorgeous as Ceremony itself.  I would never cease to be inspired.

There are few things more lovely than an in-love couple on film.

When the bride is stunning redhead we really start getting into superlatives…

2014-07-16_001

I knew from my first phone conversation with Kelly that I would love her.  She and Bill met while studying Javanese Gamelan,  over which I went completely bonkers as a former music major.  We had the most relaxed and lovely time at their Wintery engagement session and I could not wait to capture their love on film once more.  The pair of them are each the coolest combo of fun loving and tranquil – it’s no wonder they found each other.  And no surprise that their families, friends, and even their wedding itself reflected this juxtaposition.  The day simply flew by and when we left, my partner-in-crime, Gina and I were amazed at how much fun we had and how quickly the day had passed!

Boston Film Wedding Photographer – New England Film Wedding Photographer – Tupper Manor Wedding Photographer – Beverly, MA Wedding Photographer – Juliet & Todd Married!June 30, 2014

posted in Wedding

Upon my first meeting with Juliet I was moved by her sweet nature (and stunning resemblance to Karolina Kurkova!) and very curious to meet her intended, Todd, about whom she spoke with so much adoration and kindness.   Once I met Todd at their Newburyport/Plum Island engagement session my hopes were satisfied – Todd is equally warm, loving, and completely adoring of his Juliet.  Their wedding was the Platonic form of pretty and is going to be a part of a very special feature on a very special blog in the coming weeks, so for now:

A little peek into the lovely wedding of two of the sweetest people I have had the pleasure to know. 2014-06-24_002 2014-06-24_003 2014-06-24_004 2014-06-24_005 2014-06-24_006  2014-06-24_008 2014-06-24_009 2014-06-24_010 2014-06-24_011

Juliet & Todd, I cannot think of two more perfectly matched people and wish you so much happiness!

A Camp Romance for the ages…

2014-06-06_001Often when I’m at a wedding, some guest will ask me, “Are you a friend of the bride and groom?”  And while I was not officially a ‘friend’ when I arrived at their wedding by the time I left I felt certain that we were and will be.  That’s how warm and fun these two are.

Kennan and Keith’s celebration was filled with the kind of personal details that make me swoon – the overwhelmingly beautiful florals were done by one of Keith’s sisters, Kit Lagrèze.  Kennan and Keith (an incredibly talented pair of architects/designers) created all of the graphics on the centerpieces and a beautiful textile based on the map of Camp Kiwanee itself.  Not to mention the fact that the officiant (Keith’s stepmom,) is a SHAMAN!

This was my first Shaman-officiated wedding and it was amazing!!!

Kennan and Keith, I thank you again for the great privilege of photographing your wedding and wish you so much joy and happiness!

It was cold and it was windy, but Kelly and Bill braved the elements for this quintessentially Boston shoot.  I’d like to think that his warm smile and her beautiful red hair thawed us but perhaps that’s just pleasant hindsight getting the better of me…
