Katie and Matt got an absolutely perfect day for their outdoor ceremony and their gorgeous Hellenic Center wedding! I was begging for some sunshine and this wedding gave me exactly that! All my weddings up until this one had been cloudy and although I do love some clouds (perfect even light, gorgeous softbox over everyone’s head) I was dying for some bright sunshine bokeh so I think you’ll notice how obsessed I was with it on this particular day. :)
I loved photographing these two during their beautiful sunny fall engagement session in Boston and was excited to get them back in front of the camera. Katie & Matt met back in high school so their romance has spanned more than a decade I believe. And since I am a high school teacher you know I just love a story like that. :) Interesting fact for this wedding is that Katie is actually a former student of mine from waaaaaaay back in my first year of teaching…eeeeeek! So I was, honestly, beyond honored when she hired me to capture this most special day for her and Matt—it’s one of those moments that really brings things full circle for me. Another fun fact is that both of these guys graduated from BHS so although I never had Matt in my classroom I did have former students galore at this wedding…so fun! Okay, I know Katie is patiently awaiting these and I kind of did a little bit of a blog overload (don’t I always) so I think I should just get to the photos already. ;)
• Katie had copper accents everywhere and they were stunning
• Flower bouquets that brought in tons of garden roses and blushes and pinks…fav!
• Matt and all the guys were dapper in traditional tuxes, but they were tons and tons of fun and brought a little fun with billiard themed socks. :)
• Every single photo I took of these two made me swoon…big love!
• The dance floor was packed all night and we got some great shots of it (check my insta story if you want a closer look)
