Molly and Will are my beautiful friends who asked me to photograph the most fun and stunning wedding of all time. Their Boston wedding did three things: 1. Allowed me to go on a vacation with my best friends from high school to me very favorite city. 2. Allowed me to eat my heart out (More on that in a bit). 3. Allowed my work to be on the COVER of the Boston Globe Magazine (!!!)
Let’s start with Number 1. I met Molly in high school, shared a locker with her, spent hours at a time listening to her beautiful singing voice and laughed my butt off with her and our incredible group of friends night after night after night. She’s a sweetheart and all of the girls from my childhood were so excited to celebrate her. So we all flew out to the East Coast and enjoyed time in Maine and Boston, fun nights at Fenway, good food everywhere we turned, and breathtaking views of the coast. We LOVED the city but we loved being together even more. It was the first vacation we had taken together since our senior year of high school. And for those of you who are curious, here’s a little hint as to when that was: we spent our entire spring break dancing to the new hit, 50 Cent “In Da Club”. So this trip together was long over due – and boy did we live it up!
#2: I ATE MY HEART OUT. Seriously. Will is an incredible chef. You can catch him at his insane restaurant, Puritan & Company in Cambridge or on the Today Show as a guest chef. He’s the real deal and it was my privilige to eat my way through his celebration weeked. The cocktail hour had a GARDEN of cheese, spreads, fresh breads – charcuterie for days. In another garden, there was a boat full of raw bar goods. Will’s groomsmen and fellow chef buds (of some of my favorite spots in Boston) pitched in the most delicious hors d’oeuvres, Chef Will Gilson himself prepped an overwhelming dinner and an ice cream truck sealed the deal. And then came the afterparty. Molly and Will had their guests bussed to Puritan & Co for a night filled with insane fun and, you guessed it, more food. By the time my husband had his fourth burger, it was time for us to go. Molly and Will did not disappoint. The food was great and plentiful and we’ll forever talk about how awesome of a wedding it was.
#3. Because Will is such a hot-shot chef, the Boston Globe wanted to feature his foodie wedding in their wedding issue of the Globe Magazine. It was an honor for Molly and Will to ask me to photograph their wedding and being included in this publication was so, so incredible. I’m so thankful to see my photo on the cover and my work inside the pages of such an iconic publication. This wedding will always be one of my favorites.
(Molly and Will got married August 2016. Because of the publication, photos are just now being shared on my blog.)
