I recently photographed one of the most elegant weddings I’ve ever had the pleasure to witness. I was especially excited to photograph it because although I’ve worked on same-sex weddings, this was the first lesbian wedding I’ve shot. Sarah and Meghan made a wonderful couple together, and it was interesting to see how their personalities were expressed in their different approaches to the day. Below are just a few of my favorite moments from their day.
Sarah had her hair and makeup in the beautiful light of one of the elegant mezzanine rooms that the Boston Harbor Hotel has available.
Meanwhile, Meghan and her friends hung out in her hotel room and prepared for the wedding in their own way.
Having gotten ready with others, they then privately shared a first meeting. Meghan waited downstairs for Sarah to arrive. Sarah walked the length of the wharf, coming up behind Meghan. When Meghan turned they saw each other for the first time they fell into each other’s arms.
I love shooting with my good friends and this day I was working alongside the fabulous Rhode Island Wedding Photographer Stacey Doyle. This amazing portrait of the couple is just one of the magnificent images Stacey captured.
Then it was off to the ceremony.
The ceremony was a touching and beautiful affair that took place in the round under a gorgeous cascade of flowers and crystals created by Winston Flowers. Sarah and Meghan read vows they had each written, exchanged rings, and were married.
While the guests left to enjoy cocktails, the room was transformed though the talent of the BHH staff, Suzanne B. Lowell Lighting Design, and Winston Flowers all coordinated through their amazing their event consultant, Michele Mottola.
From the first dance until the end of the evening, the reception was an energetic party.
And if folks wanted to relax they could go outside and enjoy s’mores by the fire pits.
Congratulations Sarah & Meghan!
