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.

The men heading upstairs after the Tish.

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.

Jess’s dad with some high kicks!

Jess’s mom listening to Jess’s sister Danielle giver her toast….

Andrew and his mom…

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!

    From the very second that Nancy and her assistant arrived at the hotel, I knew she would capture every emotion, feeling and excitement of the day. I was right! I’m sitting here in tears… Nancy you captured moments that I didn’t remember. Thank you so much…..I can’t wait to order pictures!…….Marcy Kaufman

    Nancy,
    As I told you before you left the wedding that night, we love you! You made the experience of our wedding even greater and to see some of the final product is a great expression or your artistic genius. You have an amazing eye and a warmth that made working with you a pleasure.

    Thanks
