November Wedding at the Hampshire House – First Look in the Public Garden
Faith-Anne and Mike were married at the Hampshire House in Boston (aka “Cheers”) on a chilly evening in November. There are so many things I love about this wedding. The first is the fact that Faith-Anne and Mike’s mothers are best friends, which is how they met (something my friend Kristen and I talk about when we get together for play-dates with out own two little ones). Second, Faith-Anne and Mike decided they wanted to do a “first look” before the wedding, which makes for adorable photos ops, more time and a more relaxed photo session with the wedding party, and less stress before the ceremony. They had the perfect plan for their first look: once Faith-Anne and the girls were ready, we headed across the street to the Boston Public Garden where Mike and his groomsmen were waiting. After the pinning of the boutonnieres, Mike waited patiently, back turned as Faith-Anne crept up behind him. The looks on their faces when they saw each other were priceless, and I loved reliving this moment as I edited their photos. The first look was followed by a heartfelt ceremony and an intimate family dinner at the Hampshire House. I am so honored to have been part of this wonderful celebration. Faith-Anne and Mike, it is so clear that you two are perfect for one another – if there was any doubt, it would have been dispelled by you unknowingly writing eerily similar vows for one another – and I wish you many more years of love and happiness together!
