Stephanie and Brock were married on September 26th, with a ceremony and reception at Battery Wharf Hotel in Boston.
I was so excited to get to see Stephanie and Brock tie the knot after doing an amazing engagement session with these two. It was obvious throughout their wedding day how excited they were to get married, and they clearly enjoyed every moment together.
I started off the day with the guys as they crowded around a mirror in one of the hotel’s conference rooms to tie their bow ties and help each other get ready. Stephanie sent Brock a gift and a love note to go with it (it was a framed menu from the restaurant where they got engaged, signed by the chef!), and Brock was just in awe of the Stephanie's thoughtfulness.
Then I headed up to the bridal suite where the ladies were hanging out and taking it all in. It was super important to Stephanie to spend at least a few moments of down time before the wedding with the friends that mean the world to her. They cozied up together on the couch as they laughed and toasted to Stephanie’s last hours as a single woman.
After getting into the dress, Stephanie and her girls headed out to meet the guys for the first look at Columbus Park, which is just a short walk from the hotel. Afterwards, we took pictures with the wedding party and portraits of the two of them before we went back to the hotel for the ceremony.
The ceremony was held out on the water behind the Battery Wharf Hotel overlooking the Boston Harbor. Many beautiful boats and sailboats made their way past as Stephanie and Brock said their vows. I love how you can see Stephanie's happiness and pure joy after they kissed. Then, just moments later as they walked away from the ceremony, they couldn't keep away from each other!
Stephanie and Brock's first dance was made more special by inviting their guests to circle the dance floor to watch the action. It's so nice to be able to see the faces of your loved ones in the background of the images during this important moment.
Thank you, Stephanie & Brock, for asking me to capture your amazing wedding day! You two are absolutely fantastic, and I wish you the best!
