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.

Melanie & Jon: Married – Colonial Hall at Rockafellas

On her wedding day, Melanie said, "I picked February because I didn't want rain, snow would be OK though." Well, it could have rained, because I don't think anyone could have predicted a 45-degree day dead in the middle of winter, but thankfully there wasn't even a cloud in the sky when Jess and I headed up to Salem for Melanie and Jon's wedding. I'd never photographed at Colonial Hall before, but it was an absolutely stunning venue to work in, right in the middle of downtown Salem. To add to the good news, just yesterday Melanie called to say that her jewelry (she made their wedding bands herself!) will soon be featured on Etsy's homepage, so we're already in the process of planning for another shoot. Special thanks to Salem native Mark Davidson for his help in photographing all of the details from Melanie and Jon's day.
