Julie and Patrick held an intimate wedding with their closest friends and family this past summer in Boston. Their good friend married them in a beautiful ceremony in the Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park right on the water. Originally, the couple was planning to get married at Boston City Hall and we were going to walk to the park for photographs but their friend pointed out that she could marry them anywhere and why not hold the ceremony under the beautiful green, sun-splashed canopy as well. A street performer played some jazzy Sinatra, there was a light summer breeze, and the mood was perfect.
I absolutely love photographing intimate weddings because they are just that, intimate. The sometimes-over-the-top details are left behind and the true love intention of the day, shared with those closest to you, remains. I couldn't help but tear up a bit when they said their vows. The way they looked at each other and down towards Julie's belly and their little one on the way had everyone a little teary-eyed and full of smiles.
The couple chose Lucca in the North End to enjoy some delicious Italian food so we grabbed some photographs along the way in a few of Boston's iconic brick alleyways. I cannot wait to share a handful from their collection with you.
Best of luck to you, Julie and Patrick, and so much love to your little bundle of joy, too!
