Museum of Science Wedding: Amy + Jon Getting Ready

May 23, 2010 | Weddings

Saturday marked the beginning of my Boston wedding season – it was both super exciting and – weirdly – completely nerve-wracking.  Maybe I always get a little anxious at the start of the season, but yesterday was the first time in years that I remember being such a bag of nerves.  Still, I needn’t have worried; Jon and Amy are two of my favorite people, and their wedding was every bit as emotional and beautiful as I’d hoped it might be.

I started the day at the Royal Sonesta Hotel, overlooking the Charles River and their ceremony and reception venue, the Museum of Science.  The girls’ room was a rockin’ roller-coaster of emotion which made for great photos.

Amy and Jon’s colors were blue with a pop of yellow; I love all the blue details she had waiting for me to photograph.  And those invites and programs?  Amy designed and made each one by hand!

The blue ring was a gift from her Maid of Honor the day before; its purpose was to help Amy focus on the most important thing in the mad rush of the final 24 hours: love.  There were some gorgeous non-blue details too …


Amy was all made up before I arrived, but needed a couple of touch-ups before getting dressed.  I love the shot of her mom holding up the dress – so happy!


I took a couple of final shots of Amy as she made the finishing touches:


I headed downstairs to the lobby where Jon and his guys were patiently waiting for me.  I was very taken with the bright yellow boutonnieres, and I loved that the ties matched the lining of the invitation envelopes.


Stay tuned for a TON more photos over the next few days!
