Samantha and Troy : A Publick House Wedding

You never know how you're going to meet your soul mate. For Samantha and Troy it happened when Samantha signed up for guitar lessons with Troy. As they got to know each other better they ended up on a date and the rest is history. While they live in Brooklynn NY, they tied the knot in Samantha's home state of Massachusetts at The Publick House in Stockbridge MA. It was a beautiful warm spring day with just a hint of wind. Personal touches included Troy's cufflinks made from guitar amp volume control knobs, a personalized Red Sox shirt and a custom made wooden sign to honor their date. With every wedding there are moments of high emotion. While there were many at Sam and Troy's, two stand out to me: their first look, and Troy's dance with his mom. Troy's mom had worked with her physical therapist for months to get the strength to stand for the dance and there wasn't a dry eye around the dance floor when she surprised him by standing up and joining him on the dance floor. 

Congratulations Samantha and Troy! We loved being there for you ~

Hilary and David : A Boston Wedding at Les Zygomates

I had such an amazing day with Hilary and David as they celebrated their wedding in the heart of downtown Boston. I met Hilary's mom Suzie when I was photographing a party for her friends just over a year ago and luckily it didn't take long for her to get Hilary and David in touch with me for their wedding photography.

When I arrived at the Intercontinental Hilary and her bridesmaids were enjoying having their hair and make-up done with some drinks and music while David and the guys were just down the hall doing the same, minus the make-up and hair stylist. They had their first look at the entrance of Boston's Old City Hall, directly behind Kings Chapel where they would exchange vows. The weather was amazing. It was one of those perfect spring days with beautiful light, no wind and warm, but not too warm. After their first look and portraits they exchanged vows in the historic Kings Chapel and everyone in attendance joined in for a song. The joy in both Hilary and David can be seen in the images as they couldn't stop smiling and laughing. I loved every minute of it.

I always love the personal reasons our couples have for the details of the day, such as the jewel pinned to Hilary's dress that has been passed down for many generations by the women in her family, to the choice of venue for it's funky art work and great wine list, to Kings Chapel which is affiliated with the chapel Hilary grew up attending enabling her childhood minister to marry them.

Hilary was gorgeous in her Vera Wang gown from Alexia's Bridal and David's Indochino suit was perfect for him. Their amazing flower arrangements were designed by Poppy Floral and Tiffany and Lisa from Specialty Events made all the ladies look their very best. 

Les Zygomates is a stone throw from the Kings Chapel and we made our way there on a shuttle. Les Zygomates event manager Jeri is a rockstar and made sure the guests had an amazing evening. It is a fantastic restaurant for a wedding with two bars, plenty of seating, and a nice dance floor with a great city vibe. After some toasts and a fantastic dinner, DJ Mike (very cool guy) kicked off the party and the dancing was on for the night. Friends served Tequila shots on the dance floor and we ended the night with some fun in the city streets.

Congratulations Hilary and David! It was an honor to be there for you and I am excited to share these with you all! Cheers ~ Matt

2016 Weddings in Review

"I just want to meet all of them!" is what one of our beautiful brides said to me recently. She was referring to all the amazing couples we have photographed in 2016 and it was the most perfect statement as it showed that we are doing what we aim to do; photographing our couples to show their personalities and tell their unique stories. Enna and I are so grateful for the year we had! So many amazing couples and moments and we are honored to have been right there to document it. We adore all of you and thank you so much for trusting us to tell your story. It was incredibly difficult to narrow it down to a reasonable number, so we decided to keep it only to weddings, and here are our absolute fav's of 2016! Grab a drink, sit back, and we hope you enjoy the images.  Cheers!
