Maureen and Luke || Commandant's House || Charlestown, Massachusetts

What a gorgeous day Maureen and Luke had for their wedding! Which, was no small feat given the weather we’ve had. I didn’t even take out my rainbow umbrella! They had the reception at the lovely Commandant’s House in Charlestown. Maureen got ready there, and there were plenty of places to shoot.

She got her dress at Allegria Bridal.

I like this one of her & her dress!

Maureen and Luke took dance lessons on the sly, and she didn’t want anyone to see that her shoes were scuffed up from practicing.  She didn’t think that they would be good for a shoe picture, but I think they did just fine…..


I love how excited and happy she looks in this picture.

I couldn’t stop shooting!  How cool is this place?


Luke grinning ear to ear as Maureen comes down the aisle with her dad.

The ceremony was held at St. Mary’s Church in Charlestown, and it was just stunning.

After the ceremony, we walked down to City Square for a few pictures – bring on the sun!

It was great to see Tes from Trolleys by Tes again. She was at Catherine and Kevin‘s wedding in July. We zipped back to the Navy Yard.

While the bridal party joined the reception, Jenna from the Commandant’s House brought us over to the U.S.S. Constitution for a few pictures of Maureen & Luke. Nothing like cutting to the front of the line and feeling like a rock star!

Just a few more pictures…here’s Kelly’s…

and here’s mine…don’t they look like Mr. & Mrs. Boston?

Bunker Hill Florist did the flowers…

In lieu of favors, they made a donation to the Boston Celtics (Maureen’s employer – how cool!) Shamrock Foundation.

Morin’s Catering took care of all of the food and the cake. Not only was everything gorgeous, but it was delicious, too!

So, Luke & Maureen totally wow-ed everyone with their first dance, but I just love how excited/relieved Luke was when it was all over – check out this series –

With the first dance out of the way, Maureen’s sister made her toast. She said that she looked lovely enough to be on the cover of a magazine – but wait! she’s already been on the cover of a magazine!

Here’s Maureen on the cover of National Geographic’s World magazine – awesome.

Congratulations!!! Many more to come!
