On Thursday last week, I finally got to photograph my very first gay wedding. For those of you who know me, this is something I’ve been wanting to do for years, and I was so excited to be chosen as the photographer for Sunny and Andrea’s sweet elopement ceremony by Bernadette Coveney Smith of 14 Stories, New England’s top gay wedding planner. Andrea and Sunny flew in from Oakland, CA for their wedding, and they chose to make it a very intimate ceremony with just the two of them, myself, Bernadette and the JP at City Hall in Cambridge. I started my time with them as they were making the finishing touches in their room at the Sheraton:
I was so happy to bump into Lisette Murphy of Styling by Lisette who did a fantastic job as usual.
Once Sunny and Andrea were dressed, we headed up Mass Ave to City Hall in Cambridge for the short but incredibly emotional ceremony:
Ceremonies are always important to photograph just-right … but a ceremony when there are no guests? It is incredible to think that these photos are how Andrea and Sunny’s families and friends will witness their sweet ceremony.
It was an insanely windy day last Thursday, so we started our portrait session inside City hall. I loved the grand staircase there. Then, we headed back to the Sheraton and took some final photos around the Christian Science Center:
Huge congratulations to Andrea and Sunny on their sweet, emotional wedding. Thank you for choosing Boston as the city where you made it official!
