After taking Courtney and Jason’s engagement photos (check out the engagement blog here) last year, we have been counting down the days till their Boston wedding! This fun-loving couple is the perfect mix of romance & fun and after seeing their love in full bloom, we just knew that their big day would be amazing.
We arrived in beautiful downtown Boston, at the historical, Omni Parker House on a perfect Spring morning. We met Courtney and her girls in their dressing room to capture some fun moments while they finished their hair and makeup. The lace and details in Courtney’s gown were absolutely stunning. It was like her dress was made for the Omni Parker House!!
We love getting all the little details of the wedding day and catching all the anticipation leading up to the big moments to come! How cute are these girls in their matching kimonos?! Courtney looked just like a princess, and we were just swooning over her stunning wedding dress!After we captured some images of the gown, Derek and Kristin went to see what the groomsmen were up to and snapped some photos of them preparing for the ceremony. What a handsome group of guys here!Meanwhile, Pete and Rhiannon photographed and filmed Courtney getting into her wedding gown. You could tell how happy she was…look at her just glowing! This is one of our favorite moments on a wedding day. There is something about a beautiful bride and her girls getting into their dresses for the first time that makes us all warm fuzzy. It’s the first moment when it really feels like the whole wedding is about to happen….after all that planning, it’s finally here!After Courtney was in her gown and all ready, we all met at the top floor for the First Look on the staircase. We couldn’t wait for this intimate, emotional moment when Jason got to see his gorgeous bride-to-be for the first time. They were both so happy, and Jason couldn’t stop saying how beautiful Courtney looked…such pure adoration and love between these two!After the first look, we brought Jason and Courtney out on the balcony for a few photos with the Boston cityscape behind them, before bringing the entire wedding party outside to the Old City Hall for some fun group portraits and creatives of Jason and Courtney. This spot was right on the historical Freedom Trail, so there were a lot of tours and tourists stopping by and honking their horns to congratulate the happy couple. It was a perfect location for a Boston wedding celebration.After having lots of fun with this amazing wedding party, we went inside to get ready for the ceremony!Courtney and Jason’s ceremony was so touching and emotional. They each wrote custom vows for one another that were so full of love and heartfelt sentiment. There was not a dry eye in the house! It was easy to see how pure and deep Jason and Courtney’s love for each other is…, and it is no secret that they were truly meant to be!!
After the beautiful ceremony, it was off to the cocktail hour and the reception for some fun and dancing. The reception opened with the introductions of the wedding party and a ceremonial Hora, which is a Jewish tradition.
