I have been waiting FOREVER to be able to blog about Laura and Marc's Boston Waterfront Wedding outside at Sam's at Louis. Ironically I never actually met Laura and Marc and didn't even know what they looked like until I saw their wedding photos by Steven Michael Pugliese of Wedding Perspectives. I received an email from Laura early winter about needing invitations for her June wedding, normally I meet with perspective clients in person but for Laura and Marc it was a phone consult as they were in the process of moving to London for Marc's job. After our initial phone chat we switched to email which worked out great. Not all weddings have a theme but there is nothing more FABULOUS then a LOBSTER BAKE June wedding on Boston's Historic Waterfront.....it doesn't get anymore New England then that!

Steven of Wedding Perspectives did an incredible job of capturing all the beautiful details that truly make a wedding. I contacted Steven a few weeks before the wedding and he could not have been more gracious about allowing me to use some of his images for my blog. Before writing this I was on his website and found my way over to his BLOG, which I instantly LOVED! He not only shares the images but the story behind them and how they came to be. Out of all the vendors associated with weddings I would say photographers have it the hardest. Since the invention of the digital camera everyone thinks they're a "PROFESSIONAL" photographer. While in college I had to take a photography class as a part of my degree by the time I finished I had learned that photography really has little to do with the camera....it has to do with the eye behind the camera; the ability to see something that most do not. It's a God given talent..........you either have it or you don't and just in case you are wondering I was not given that eye which is obvious by looking at my photos verses Stevens:)
Laura had not found a floral designer yet so I recommended Gregory Costa-Saint John of Flouer and was thrilled when I found out she had hired him. Gregory is truly a gifted floral artist and I am always blown away by his work. It is pretty obvious that all the arrangement and bouquets where stunning but the stand out piece was the arch of flowers that Laura and Marc were married in front of.....seriously beautiful.
Laura did such an incredible job with the details of her wedding......her color palette was seamlessly carried out throughout the entire wedding. The New England Clam Bake theme......was flawless, from lobster cracker favors for all her guests to the newspapers for table linens. This couple may reside in London for now but it is evident from their New England Wedding that their HEART still lives here in Boston.
Thank you to Laura and Marc for allowing me to be a part of their day, it was truly an honor. Best of luck across the pond.........!
