Amanda and Matt were set to have a picture perfect Summer wedding in Boston. The weather was absolutely gorgeous! Not too hot. Not too cold. Sun with beautiful puffy clouds. The ceremony was set at the gorgeous Gate of Heaven Church right near their first home together in South Boston. After the ceremony, we would head to the Boston Public Garden followed by a fabulous reception at the Fairmont Copley Plaza. What could go wrong! Wait…what? Thousands of people are descending on the exact area we plan to shoot formals? No, I’m sure it won’t be a problem! And as luck would have it, it wasn’t. After coming up with all sorts of alternate plans, Boston’s Free Speech Rally finished up shortly after the ceremony leaving the Public Garden open for the photos Amanda and Matt had envisioned. The wedding party even managed to borrow a sign from the rally to commemorate the event. The rest of the day went off without a hitch! Here are some of my favorite images from the day.
Despite some nerves surrounding the rally, Amanda and Matt were all smiles getting ready. I love the special touch of a rosary in Amanda’s wedding dress. And check out Amanda’s wedding gift from Matt. Custom Christian Louboutin shoes!
I love shooting at the Gate of Heaven Church. It’s light and airy, yet still grand and traditional. Amanda looked like a dream walking down that aisle.
Photos in the Public Garden were perfect. I love how Amanda and Matt embraced the events of the day, taking a shot with a sign from the rally. It will make for a great anniversary story!
The Grand Ballroom at the Fairmont Copley Plaza is just gorgeous all on its own. I love how Amanda and Matt chose to let the ballroom shine by keeping their decor in all white.
The reception was just pure fun! I’m not going to lie. I couldn’t help wondering all night how Amanda managed to dance like a rock star in those Christian Louboutins!
And of course, I couldn’t resist pulling the couple out for a romantic evening shot.
