Kate and Kevin are both Massachusetts natives, and even though they now call Virginia their home they knew they wanted a quintessentially Boston wedding. And they carved a perfect slice of Beantown out for their wedding day.
The day didn’t start in Boston for everyone though. Kate got ready with the help of her bridesmaids at her parent’s South Shore home.
Soon it was time to board the trolly and brave the traffic for the ride into Boston.
Meanwhile, Kevin and his groomsmen and parents got ready downtown at The Colonnade Hotel.
The historic St. Leonard Church in Boston’s North End provided an inspiring location for the wedding ceremony.
The ceremony was followed by an iconic North End scene. Bystanders cheered and offered congratulations to Kate and Kevin as they promenaded down narrow streets lined by red brick buildings and storefronts.
To incorporate another aspect of the city’s character, we took advantage of twilight colors along the waterfront as a backdrop for group photos and portraits.
This is probably a good time to mention the talented photographer who helped me that day. Maine wedding photographer, Andree Kehn created a number of gorgeous images including this fabulous one featuring Boston’s Custom House Tower.
Close your eyes and picture a city wedding. A dazzling ballroom decked with flowers and candles probably comes to mind. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if what you just pictured looked just like Kate and Kevin’s reception at the Colonnade Hotel.
Kevin is a die hard Red Sox fan and Kate surprised him with a special groom’s cake.
They also had a surprise for Kate’s grandmother–they used the same cake topper she had at her wedding.
Brick Park provided the soundtrack that kept the dance floor busy all night long.
Congratulations again, Kate and Kevin!
