Wed: Amber & Dan

This wedding was very special to me, not only because Amber & Dan used to be our downstairs neighbors who would chill out with us in the backyard grilling delicious food and watch outdoor movies, but because their wedding was so intimate and unique. You may remember them from the mini {Love Highlighted} session I posted last year, Retro Cuties. When discussing their plans, Amber reiterated to me several times how their main goals were to keep the day relaxed and fun, to have a sweet and private ceremony with their immediate family, then follow it up with a rockin’ reception to celebrate. I truly think they accomplished this, as it couldn’t have been a more perfect day. Starting out with a morning ceremony on the Rhododendron Path in the Arboretum in Jamaica Plain, even Mother Nature soon turned out with sunshine in spades! Then we took a quick trip to the nearby abandoned section of Franklin Park Zoo to give the bride and groom some quiet one-on-one time. Later we met up again at Bella Luna Restaurant & Milky Way Lounge for a great party, complete with some of the world’s most delicious pizza and homemade strawberry rhubarb pie. What more can a girl ask for? But seriously, when I got home and looked through the images, I couldn’t help but notice all of the beautiful colors throughout – from the pink rhododendrons to the green moss to the funky red and gold stars above our heads at the Milky Way. I am so glad and grateful to have been there to document their day and witness their commitment to each other. Amber & Dan, biggest congratulations to the both of you and little Zoey!

Huge thanks also go out to Kristina Smith for spending the day with me and helping to capture the day to the fullest!
