katherina + fran ~ a boston seaside wedding

When we met Katherina and Fran they were in the early stages of planning their wedding and had yet to settle on the location.  They tossed around the idea of throwing the party in Miami, but really loved Boston's North End which holds a special place in Fran's heart as he has roots there.  After meeting with them we (Enna) became very inspired to help them find the right venue. They wanted to be married at St. Leonard' Church in Boston's North End, and they also knew that they wanted to have a lobster/clam bake on the beach.  Quite the challenge, right?  Thompson Island turned out to be just right.  The Solemn Latin mass with a Gregorian choir was absolutely beautiful (though hot!).  Katherina and Fran included their love story and many wonderful tales about themselves and their guests in the 32-page program - this booklet is such a fun and sentimental souvenir from their wedding!   After the ceremony the guests were transported via trolley to the waterfront (led by the accordian player Alex) and took a ferry to the island where everyone dined on lobster, fine wine, enjoyed sporting activities, and ended the evening with a sunset cruise on the harbor on the crazy fast Codzilla. I think Katherina and Fran blurred the line between "romantic wedding day" and "let's have some crazy fun" amazingly well:)
