Nadira & Jay: XV Beacon Engagement Party

Friday afternoon I received a very last minute call from Nadira, asking if there was any way I could find some time that evening to photograph her and new fiance Jay's engagement party that evening at XV Beacon. My good friend Christian at the hotel had given me a heads-up that she might be calling, and of course I couldn't leave them photographer-less. I only spent about an hour and a half with Nadira, Jay and their friends from all over the world (I counted at least 4 countries represented, but there may have been more), but they were quite the crowd, and clearly a good time was had by all.

Calli & Chris: Married – The Colonnade Hotel

Last week I mentioned how Calli and Chris's wedding could easily have been called the, "Bring your friends to work," wedding, with Eric McCallister along second shooting, Jen Cox handling the coordination and of course, Jess handling all her typical awesomeness. But the reality of it is, weddings aren't about me, they're about everything else amazing clients bring to their day. Like, say, hot pink high tops to wear to the reception, or a ridiculously cute puppy named after Kirby Puckett.

During the week leading up to Calli and Chris's wedding, winter was juuuuust hanging on ever so slightly, which made it all the more fun when the day arrived and we had tempertures in the mid-50s and no hint of rain (or snow, as I saw when I looked out the window this morning, thanks a LOT New England). We kicked things off at the Colonnade before hopping over to Comm. Ave for some quick pre-ceremony portraits before heading to one of Boston's hidden gems for their ceremony. Then it was back to the Colonnade where one of my absolute favorite band absolutely killed it for a party that even with 29 weddings left on the calendar for this year, will be hard to top.
