Enna and I are so excited to share Carey and Blake's wedding photos - they were the first couple we met with at the fabulous new Boston Bridal Lounge. The energy and excitement Blake and Carey bring into a room is amazing! As soon as they entered the lounge for our meeting I knew we had to be their photographers! They had the kind of fell-head-over-heels love story that most folks dream of. After being introduced at a New Year's party, a long distance relationship quickly blossomed, sending Blake flying in from California to Boston every chance he could to see his Texas sweetheart. As soon as he was able, he packed up and left California for Boston and when Carey picked him up at Logan Airport Blake knelt down and proposed to her right then and there, on the curb at the airport. Not wanting a long engagement they looked to the ladies at the Boston Bridal Lounge for help. They found that the gorgeous Turner Hill property was available on a perfect date, and the gears of wedding planning were set into motion!
Classic New England fall weather graced their wedding day - it was perfect... well, almost. You could be outside with a jacket, or without, and be fine - it was sunny and there were just a few puffy clouds in the sky. Carey and Blake enjoyed a "first look", meeting each other for portraits before the ceremony. Blake waited for Carey in a pool of light below a grove of tall evergreen trees, and watching Carey literally glow as she walked up to him made us tingle! Just as the ceremony was about to begin a small amount of rain fell on the guests who were all seated and ready for Blake to walk down the aisle. The Turner Hill staff took it all in stride, quickly wiping down the ceremony benches, and the outdoor ceremony proceeded without a hitch (or raindrop!). When Carey marched down the aisle with an ear to ear grin on her face it was perfect!
The timing worked beautifully - since we did Blake and Carey's portraits earlier, after the ceremony we breezed through family and wedding party portraits, and then they were free to go and enjoy the cocktail hour and reception. I just have to say... Blake my friend: you set the bar high for ALL future dancing grooms! Folks, this guy loves to dance and he has the moves to prove it! A special shout out to our new friend and amazing DJ Max Baun of C-Zone Music who rocked the party all night! I also have to throw in some props for Carey and her friends for their spontaneous Texas cheerleading cheers too, totally unexpected and awesome! This wedding album is going to be epic!
Congratulations Carey and Blake!! It was so much fun to be there with you and we can't help but smile when we look at your photos. ~Matt and Enna
