On May 1st we shot our first wedding of the season! Diana and Matt are an awesome couple!
Maarit (my fabulous second shooter) and I started the day at Diana’s family home where we photographed the “getting ready” moments. Shirley, Diana’s mom, is such an awesome person and both Maarit and I quickly felt like we were becoming a part of the family. Do you ever meet some folks and just feel like they could be your aunt or your cousin? Well, when that happens you know your amongst good people – so props to the most awesome hair stylist and Salon 77 owner Leah McCann for giving Shirley my phone number back in the fall! And, as an aside – Leah also did Diana’s hair for the wedding and it looked great of course!
We then headed down to St. John Baptist Church in South Boston which is an Albanian Orthodox Church. I am actually American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox so I am familiar with the Orthodox religion and I was excited to capture Diana and Matt’s wedding ceremony. The weather was beautiful and the sun was streaming in through the windows. The ceiling and details in this church were amazing and I became especially fond of the lighting fixtures hanging from the lofty ceiling.
Following the ceremony we all headed to the Boston Radisson for lots of fun and many touching moments spent with family and friends. Matt and Diana are truly both two awesome people – they have been together for 10 years and were high school sweet hearts. It was so special to be a part of this couple’s wedding day, capturing moments that they can look back on for the rest of their lives.
Okay, okay, yes I will get to the pictures! To Matt and Diana, to Shirley and to Jayne, and to all friends and family we thank you and hope you enjoy this preview:
