Leigh and Eric’s beautiful winter Boston Public Library wedding photos have been sitting patiently on my hard drive for the past four months. This handsome couple married at the Library on that very first weekend in January, before Snowmageddon 2015 started, and I’m so happy to finally share their wedding photos with you. Boston Public Library has been one of my favorite venues for years, despite my first wedding there taking place just last summer. It is an architectural beauty, and it holds special appeal to academics and writers – and especially writers who wrote their first memoir there. Eric Kester is an author, and his book about his first year at Harvard is hilarious and fascinating (I finished reading it a few weeks ago and am very much hoping for a sequel …)

Leigh and Eric wrote a wonderful little synopsis about their wedding, which I share here:

Leigh poked Eric on Facebook after reading a column he wrote for his college newspaper and that’s how their very own story began. Following college, Eric and Leigh moved into an apartment in Boston’s Beacon Hill neighborhood. Leigh went to work in advertising while Eric spent his days working on his first book at the Boston Public Library, chipping away at a comedic memoir called That Book About Harvard: Surviving the World’s Most Infamous University One Embarrassment at a Time. Little did Eric know that in 2012 his book would become a fixture on the Boston Globe Bestseller list, and that he would be wed to Leigh in the Boston Public Library—in the very same room, in fact, that he spent so many long and uncertain hours typing his manuscript that she inspired.

Their cozy winter wedding was filled with literary details from book page boutonnieres to exerpts from their favorite books during the intimate candle lit ceremony. Their mutual love for Boston, the place where they met, and their light hearted sensibility was evident in details like Eric’s game day used cufflinks and the mini Fenway Franks passed around among black tie attire. They also paid homage to their upbringing with flags from both Canada and the United States waving in the air as they exited the library and a chapter of their lives they will never forget.

Thank you to my fantastic second shooter Josh Behan for his gorgeous coverage of the day; many of his photos are included alongside mine in the slideshow above, including the pre-ceremony photos of the guests and wedding party, some of the ceremony photos, and the photos of the parent dances.
