JEWISH WEDDING AT THE CRANE ESTATE: KK & ROBIN

Photographing a wedding at the Crane Estate in Ipswich, MA had been on my wish list for six years – ever since I moved to Boston, in fact. The ocean front lawn combined with the gorgeous architecture of the house, the grand staircase … it’s a photographer’s paradise! I finally had the opportunity to photograph a wedding at this amazing venue in the fall. And not only that – it was also a Jewish lesbian wedding!

KK and Robin met at KK’s restaurant in my neighborhood of Jamaica Plain. I’ve known KK for several years; not well, but we met through a mutual friend, and I’ve always been a huge fan of her restaurants – Ten Tables (our favorite date night spot) and Grass Fed (for the yummiest burgers in town). I was beyond thrilled when she got in touch about me photographing her wedding.

After photographing the getting ready and some portraits, I had the opportunity to photograph my first bedeken, or veiling ceremony. I’ve photographed many Jewish weddings but we have always started with the Ketubah signing. I loved that they included this additional ceremony, and the photos from this time are some of my favorite from the entire day.

The main ceremony was held on the great lawn (the Grand Allee) which is such a magnificent backdrop – you can even see the sea in the distance. It reminds me so much of the grand old mansions in England. The reception took place in the Great House on Castle Hill, and was both elegant and exuberant! New Leaf Flores did a beautiful job with the florals, adding in herbs and lots of foliage, and Station 8 Salon helped make everyone look spectacular.

I loved how involved Robin and KK’s kids were in the wedding. They were such troupers (it was bitingly cold outside during the ceremony) and they looked so adorable in their gold and cream. The entire event was so stylish – and I especially loved KK’s 9Tailors three piece navy suit.
