What a great way to start out our 2011 wedding season than to photograph Laura and Lowell’s celebration in Boston! And, on the night of the “Supermoon,” to boot!
What made this wedding extra special for me was that I have known Laura (almost) since I moved to Connecticut from Colorado about a dozen years ago. We can’t remember exactly how we met, through whom or even why. But, she and I knew how to drink a martini together and that was the beginning of the many we would share over the years. We lost touch for a while as Laura moved to Boston to live a crazy single girl life and I began a family in CT. With a little bit of irony, as Laura moved to Boston to start her new life, she ended up finding love in Connecticut! And, I LOVE this part of the story because LAURA IS BACK!!! And, she is so happy! So, as her friend and photographer, I am overjoyed to share some photos of these two people in love…..
It is a little bit of a sneak peak because I was way too excited to start playing with the images of this amazing moon!!!! Seriously, I LOVE the moon in these shots! It isn’t every day that you have an awesome couple, a clear night and a lunar event! (That sounded so scientific and geeky…..)! There are other things that made this wedding one to remember:
Laura in her “Amanda” by Maggie Sottero from Mariella Creations in Rocky Hill.
Being in Boston and having the church organist’s real name be “Sam Adams….”
The fantastic and intimate venue, The Commander’s Mansion with history that dates back to the Civil War and an irreverent US military Commander most remembered for his overindulging and failures to appropriately express joy at the surrender of General Lee, and sorrow at the death of President Lincoln.
So, enjoy a sneak peak at Laura and Lowell’s wedding!
Laura, you knew me when I only had the dream of opening my own photography studio…. All these years later, thank you for asking me to document your wedding. I am always honored and humbled when a friend puts this kind of trust in me. I hope you will enjoy these images for generations. Now, let’s go drink some martinis now that you are “home” again! Lowell, you are invited, too! You two are a great match. Thank you for making my friend so happy.
