Jessica and Andrew || Royal Sonesta Hotel || Cambridge, Massachusetts

Hello my blog-stalkers….I know you’ve been waiting for this! I’m so excited that I finally have some pictures to share from Jessica and Andrew’s fabulous wedding on the Charles River. Ever since Jessica booked me a year and a half ago, she has been a faithful blog reader, and gotten her friends and family in on the action, too! We had so much fun doing their engagement shoot, that I knew their wedding would be a blast!

The ceremony and reception were at the Royal Sonesta in Cambridge, and Christine Lopez made sure everything ran perfectly!

Her little sister couldn’t get over how great she looked!

Fiona at Chanel on Newbury did her make-up and it looked beautiful.

Jessica and Andrew chose to see each other before the ceremony and do their pictures so they could enjoy their cocktail hour. I had them meet on a stairway because it makes it really easy to see them both at the same time. Right before their meeting, I took this picture – I could see them both, they could hear each other but not see each other.

It was pretty windy outside, so before we went out, we did a few pictures inside. They just opened a new bar at the Sonesta called the ArtBar. It has such a cool modern feel, and made a great backdrop for photos.

Of course, once Christine knew they were in there, she sent them a few glasses of champagne . Jessica’s flowers were by Tangerine Creations.

I love the light in this shot during the ceremony, and that you can see Jessica’s mom and dad behind her.

So, this picture is not the most fabulous one ever, but I just wanted to illustrate how many people were on the dance floor BEFORE THE INTRODUCTIONS! And the band was just playing some mellow music – I guess it was a combination of a great band and a bunch of guests ready to party!

Beantown kept up the pace all night and everyone had a blast.

My apologies to the guest I borrowed the program from for this shot – I totally forgot to give it back to you! It made for a fun picture though….

I usually don’t post two ring pictures, but I loved the handwriting on this card….

Jess’s mom went a little crazy with the pink & brown themed candy bar – here she is letting all the kiddos loose on it!

Congratulations you two – can’t wait to show you the rest!

Last Thursday I got to hang out with Jessica and Andrew at the Public Garden. We did a few engagement pictures as a nice warm-up for their wedding coming up quickly in July! They will be getting married at the Royal Sonesta right on the Charles, so it was fun to be able to do some pictures downtown!!

How could we leave out Storrow???

Jessica decided to do her trial make-up run with Nancy Antoine and she looked fabulous.

Thanks for a fun night, you two! And, as always, an excuse to come into the city and bring home burritos from Ana’s!!!

See you in a few weeks!!
