A very beautiful wedding on the backyard of Ashleigh & Peter. Especially to observe the mixture of 3 different cultures & traditions in this wedding (Jewish, Russian and American).
Most of the setups are DIY, and all vendors in this wedding are truly the best. Hats up to all of them! :)
Talking about being simple, how about this: No make up, no hair-styling, no jewelries, and less than 10 minutes of “getting ready.” It’s like talking about being comfortable and be yourself to the next level.
Intercultural wedding always holds its unique value and experience. Not only for the wedding couple, Pon & Grace, but also for the entire family(s) and guests. Different language, culture, and tradition are things that can hinder the unity of marriage, although it all comes back to our own commitment and attitude.
Grace always dreamed of having the traditional Tea Ceremony in her wedding, and it is definitely a new thing for Pon’s family. Well, you can guess how cute the ceremony went :) – but it’s all good.
This is one of the most memorable weddings we had. As we know already that they’re a power couple, this is also our first barn wedding and our first wedding with firework exit. Oh well, challenge accepted, and sure enough, the photos are well worth the effort. The Glimmerstone Mansion also such a fascinating place! We can’t get enough to photographed this venue inside out. Even the getting ready room is so well lit and very generous with natural light.
Congratulation Bethany & Dave, may your new adventure only gets better and higher from this point forward.
Power couple! Anita and Bryan. You can feel the positiveness radiating from both of them :) They are cheerful, fun and have a teen spirit. We mean… well, just go through this gallery until you see them at the reception. It is exploding!
This is the second time we cover a wedding at Frank Jones Center, as it is the only venue that can hold up to 800 people. Indonesian weddings have a quite large amount of attendance in general, so the options are kinda limited to pick a venue. That’s OK though, this place is elegant and hold the crowd pretty well.
Congratulation Julia & Jarrod! This is their second reception. As they both live in Ohio, they already had married and had celebration over there; but since New Hampshire is where Julia grown up and because her parents also still live in this state, they want to celebrate together with all friends and families here as well in New England. They pick Spirit of Boston as their venue. It’s a beautiful triple deck ferry. Enjoy the pictures :)
Just about time until we finally have a chance for a session at two of our most favorite parks: Boston Common, MA (and Pier Parks, East Boston).
Although it was pretty crowded that day, because there was a music concert nearby, we managed to squeeze them into the picture without disrupted by public. Boston also has its value to them since it is part of their daily commute (before); and them being so busy with career transition, wedding and marriage preparation (technical and spiritual stuff), we just want to make sure that this engagement session is well worth time spending. Cheers for this young couple!
Up in Vermont again! This gorgeous State is like our second home. We love this Vermont so much, and we always spend another day to explore the city every time we have a gig here.
Mountain Top Inn is also a beautiful place. They have multiple point of interests which you can enjoy. Lake, mountain view, indoor outdoor activity, horse riding, you got them all! Alyssa and Tucker definitely made a great choice here :) and they are such a laid back couple. We had so much fun at the wedding, although the weather was brutal (upper 90’s) but we made it through the night. At the end of the day, they’re getting married, and (drunk) dancing all night long. It’s all good!
Della & Franklin has been in Long Distance Relationship for a while, and it is exciting to know they are finally tying the knot!
Similar like us, they’re separated as far as half the world away: United States and Indonesia. It is never been easy. Communication, commitment and trust play a big role to maintain a long distance relationship. Thank God we have all this technology to bring us closer, even the time-zone messed up our schedule for sure :)
This is a rather simple and quick wedding. They have their ceremony at their local church, and went straight to Chinese Buffet to celebrate their wedding. No cake cutting, no dance, no speech, nothing… straight to the business: Lunch! Well, that worked well for us too!
Julia, a friend of mine at our local church. We have known her for years, and watched her grown up to become a wonderful person. So excited when we heard she was engaged with Jarrod. They met each other while Julia worked with her degree Ohio. They flew back to NH to get this session done as well as finalizing their preparation for their wedding which will be held in Boston, MA.
Bryan & Anita, they have a complete opposite of personality in front of the camera. While she’s a bit shy and reserved, Bryan really put themselves on the spotlight. He did silly stunts, jump, dance, run, which is also favor us to capture these fun shots throughout the session.
After having their sunny engagement session taken in California, it is time to hit the winter theme up in Maine. Vaughan Woods State Park was kind enough for still holding few acres of snowy plain around the forest, despite the fact this is probably the warmest winter ever.
We started 2016 with this Winter Wedding of our beloved friends, Michael & Annie.
We’ve seen it all; since they started dating each other, gathered all the courage to talked about marriage, the proposal, went through pre-marital counseling for months and months, clueless and frustrated with planning a wedding timeline, and here they are today as a husband and wife.
For us, to be able to bear witness (and capturing) one of the most important points of their life is always a privilege. What’s left in our prayer now, is for them not to fight each other while walking through the kitchen aisle at IKEA.
Do you know there’s another way to celebrate New Year? Getting married!
Although it was on Thursday, it didn’t matter; party must goes on. It’s quite an experience for us to cover a New Year’s Eve wedding as we never had that before. We saw a lot of NYE props at the photo booth, bunch of trumpets. The excitement among the guests also pretty rad, on which we think it’s the euphoria of the NYE. However we didn’t stay until past-midnight as our coverage ended at 10:30PM, but it’s all right since we had a chance to celebrate the NYE with our friends and family after that :)
Ashley and Jay are laid-back and a wonderful couple, while the groomsmen were hilarious and quite a ‘trouble-maker’ (in a good way) -we had a lot of fun with them. Ashley and Jay also have a little Son, who gave a lot of headache to Bridesmaid in getting him into the Tux during preparation. Another thing to mention is, Waterworks Cafe is a very nice and classy venue. Would love to come back there again sometimes ;)
“To be having this kind of weather in December (70°F), I believe it’s the work from above”
Said the Father of the bride during his speech on Reception. It’s true though, weather permitted us to have a great time photographing the gorgeous bridal party outdoor by Boston Fan Pier.
Kristen is a lovely person with a lot of energy. We can say that by looking at all the bridesmaids she attracted into her life :) — in the other hand, Bryan, he’s the man: Calm and confident. This is our first wedding where we have to travel so much to different places (five places to be exact, although they’re around 2-7 miles each), but since it’s Boston, you can imagine its traffic on the weekend.
No complain, we enjoyed every bit of every location. They also had their beautiful ceremony at Gate of Heaven Church, South Boston MA (Cathedral) with its grand architecture.
Bethany and Dave booked us for their wedding photographer right toward the end of Spring. Thankfully the weather wasn’t brutally cold like it should during this time of the year; although for an outdoor session, it’s still quite a challenge to wear a dress. Since Dave is also a hunter, they came up with the outfit and some pose.
Looking good Dave! Beside you guys seem to be having fun :)
