Usually in February we here at
are hibernating and working on lots of details in weddingland but not actually executing and managing weddings. Well, this year was different because on February 27 Sarah and Doug got married!
Sarah was such a wonderful bride and incredibly nice person to work with. The couple lives in New York City and Sarah would come up to Boston every so often for work and then we would "work" some more on her wedding. Oftentimes Sarah would say, "I don't know how you do this." And it's because of wonderful clients like Sarah that I LOVE what I do.
And I am also lucky that I have amazing assistants that also love weddings! I have to put a shout out to my amazing assistants - Kerri, Jenna and Deanna! THANK YOU LADIES!!
Doing a wedding at the
and at the
is no small feat! But the day went so smoothly and I was so honored to witness so many beautiful moments. And some of those moments were the music! Oh the music! Sarah has a love for music that was evident at her ceremony. First BRAVISSIMO to her organist, Keith Glavash, and trumpeter, Bruce Hall. They were fantastic and "behind the scenes" at Harvard since the organ is "hidden" in the Appleton Chapel. And as a special treat, the
, of which Sarah was a member of when she was an undergrad, performed Mendelssohn's "Laudate pueri, Op. 39/2". Directed by Kevin Leong, the ladies of the RCC sang their hearts out and looked beautiful in their concert black. Thank you the Kevin, John (the accompanist) and all the ladies of the RCC. Truly, touching music at the ceremony.
After such a beautiful ceremony at Harvard University, how do you top it but to have your reception at the Boston Public Library of course! Well, somehow the dreary weather decided not to rear its ugly head and we had a great night with delicious food and impecable service provided by
. Thank you to Kate and all the other wonderful staff that worked so hard to execute my very stringent timeline! After dinner, one of Sarah's favorite bands,
, took center stage and swept us all away to an era past with their Big Band music. And when the bride and groom danced their first dance to "If they asked me, I could write a book" in the Abbey Room at the Boston Public Library, you would be hard pressed to figure out if you were there in the present 2010 or swept back to the 1930s.
And I would be remiss if I didn't send my last kudos to the talented and incredible photographer du jour,
. Take a peek at the images he sent me from the slide show. But better yet, click the link and SEE THE ENTIRE SLIDE SHOW!
Congratulations Sarah and Doug! Thank you for letting us be a part of your special day!
