A Very Small Downtown Boston Wedding
It’s been a very long roll out to Spring. We’ve all been feeling it. Earlier this month I had the pleasure of photographing a very small downtown Boston wedding. So small that the only people in attendance were a brother and their amazing little dog. Which really makes for a guest list of one human, one canine.
The newlyweds will plan a larger reception with their families later, but I understood completely when they told me that they really just wanted to be married and with their out of sync work schedules that they decided to get married on the day they were both off, which happened to be a Wednesday. And there’s no reason a Wednesday isn’t as good a day as a Saturday or a Sunday to get married.
It was windy. And you may remember if you’ve been in our fair city this “spring,” that the brisk breezes have most definitely been blowing.
We met at their apartment and then connected with the officiant. The brides wanted to get married across the street from their apartment, at the fountain behind the Prudential center. It was a beautiful civil ceremony, each bride reading their own vows.
I’m sure you have been to, or perhaps even had, a big wedding. There is something to be said for doing it up. But there is also something beautiful about pairing everything down to the moist essential. Your fiance. Your brother. Your dog. The city where you met and fell in love. These kind of intimate celebrations are wonderful, immediate and emotional.
