Paul and I were honored to be asked to photograph my cousin’s wedding in Boston this past weekend. I don’t see my family often enough and when we do have the opportunity to visit with each other, I am reminded that there are too many miles between us.

Sarah & Dan had a beautiful ceremony in Park Street Church surrounded by their family and friends that had flown from great distances to share in their celebration of their new life together. Despite the freezing cold temperatures (12 degrees with a wind chill), they were willing to stand out in the cold for a few minutes so we could get some images in the Boston Commons and the John Weeks Bridge.

Thank you, Sarah & Dan. We loved being your photographers and wish you all the happiness in the years to come. You two are caring, genuine people and make a perfect match.

I blogged many more photos than I typically blog, but it’s even more difficult to narrow down when it’s  my family. 🙂 

The pearls were a gift from Sarah’s parents.

She made a beautiful bride. 🙂

We braved the cold for a few minutes to photograph the First Look on the John Weeks Bridge.

She wore a fir that was our Great Grandmothers and had her initials on the inside. 🙂

The reception was held on the top floor of the Hyatt Regency in Cambridge and the view was beautiful.

Abbey & Isaac were married at the Green Villa Barn on a perfect January day and her beautiful wedding dress looked like small snow flakes against the dusting of snow.  Their ceremony was a perfect representation of their story and what the future holds for them and we couldn’t be happier to document such a beautiful story.

The first look

Abbey & Isaac had a foot washing ceremony as part of their ceremony.

Communion was provided for all of the guests while Abbey & Isaac took communion.

We always enjoy documenting weddings in Pacific City. The event staff are amazing to work with and our couples happily hike up the sand dune to capture the picturesque setting in their photos. We hadn’t photographed a wedding in October in Pacific City, but the day was perfect in every way.

Congratulations, Anna & David!

We wish you all the happiness. 🙂

We have had a the privilege of getting to know this sweet family the past year in our first year of homeschooling in our Classical Conversations community. Our girls are blessed to have these girls as friends and Stephanie is a joy to know and I look forward to many more years watching our kids grow up learning together. 🙂
