You may have read (if you follow my work) that I love intimate weddings.  And I also love parties.  So this is a good way to split the difference.   Deciding between a big wedding or a small one?  Why not have both?  Go intimate for the ceremony and invite just the inner circle.  And then when you are ready invite the rest of the people to dinner.  Or in this case a Sunday afternoon feast.

I met Rosie, the bride, a few years ago when she asked me to update her headshots (she’s an opera singer). A few years later she reached out about photographing her Cambridge City Hall wedding.  And again when they had that she consistently referred to it as “the party” and a party it was.

Family and friends gathered for food and music.  I’ll qualify that as great food and great music on a Sunday afternoon at Commonwealth Cambridge.  To say that this couple does things their own way would be an understatement.

Modern and food focused venue tucked away just a few blocks outside of Kendall Square, their Sunday lunch was incredible.  And Sara Bielanski was there. Singing. Beautifully.  (oh and yes! I photographed her for her album!)
