Information on how to get married at Boston City Hall

Looking for Information on how to get married at Boston City Hall? Many engaged couples wonder the same thing. If you are planning a reception overseas or at a later date, it’s still important to have a look at wedding photographers. After all, just because your vows won’t be in a typical venue you still deserve photos that show your emotions and feelings towards each other when you speak your vows. Too many times, wedding photographers choose to engage in churning out publishable “wedding detail” photos that could surely get pinned and re-pinned and serve as a resource for newly engaged couples planning their wedding. I really, really enjoyed being able to photograph this super cool couple because it was a reminder that I should be able to create meaningful, momentous photos that showcase love and tell a story, no matter how many votive candles are involved. Kasia Gora and Matthieu Couturier met at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. They decided they wanted to tie the knot, and were looking through Boston wedding photographers. I was thrilled to be selected to work with them for this very special occasion! Through email and phone correspondence, we hammered out the details and I couldn’t wait to meet them in person. Their ceremony was going to take place one floor above the mayor’s office in what Yahoo! ranks as the world’s ugliest building. I was ready, and I admit, beyond excited. It might be sheepish to share, but I’m a fan of Brutalist architecture and I had never had the opportunity to photograph in the cement fortress. This building may be a blemish that so many people hate, but inside there is so much love. It is a place that thousands of couples have professed their love in.

I loaded up some Modern Lovers on my phone so I could listen to Government Center headed to meet them ready to turn out some incredible images. I passed through the security scanner, and was prepared to conquer fluorescent lights, file cabinets, and stereotypical disgruntled city employees and create beautiful photographs. As wedding photographers, we have the opportunity to photograph countless weddings in luxury hotels, faraway islands, and elegantly transformed rural barns loaded with flowers, but I challenged myself to re-focus on why I am a wedding photographer. The bride and groom were a perfect match. Their parents who were from Poland and France were present for their vows. After they tied the knot, their little dog was outside waiting to greet them. They chose locations that we as wedding photographers have photographed at many times – Beacon Hill and the nearby Public Garden.

Boston Harbor Islands Wedding | Regan + Meredith

A Boston Harbor Islands Wedding featuring Regan + Meredith is live on the blog! This amazing couple lives in Chile, so when they were looking for a Boston wedding photographer we only had the chance to talk on the phone rather than meet in person. On the day that Boston broke a 31-year record, I started my morning by me loading up on Gatorade (four bottles), packing a suitcase full of camera gear and finding the harbor ferry at the Black Falcon Cruiseport in Boston’s bustling new Seaport District. Heading out to the Boston Harbor Islands, the water was choppy and the breeze was warm. I could enjoy a commute like this every day! I arrived and headed up to an air-conditioned Adams House where Meredith was getting ready for the day which would mark the start of a new chapter in her life with her soon-to-be husband Regan. Regan comes from New Zealand, but since they first met in Boston while Regan was working on a boat, a Boston Harbor Islands wedding was the perfect destination for them to tie the knot. Under sunny skies and in the company of dear friends and family that traveled from all corners of the globe, this perfectly matched couple would say their vows. Chowder, lobsters, corn on the cob and barbecue were part of what Meredith and Regan offered as a New England summer feast for their guests. After dinner a bonfire, fabulous music, and a once-in-a-lifetime red sun descended west on the Boston skyline. I am looking forward to sharing many more photos from this wedding with you all! Here’s one of my favorites – the best skyline made even better with a silhouette photo of the newlyweds. It was such a dream to photograph!

Having your event on the islands combines unique natural beauty with the opportunity to support Boston Harbor Islands national park area. This island was named for the man who established a trading post here in 1626. It was later leased as farmland for many years. The Thompson Island Conference Center offers the air conditioned Adams House for getting ready, and two outdoor venues including a covered reception area and professional catering. There is over 200 acres of beaches, rolling hills, meadows, salt marshes and fields. The island is a short ferry ride from downtown Boston. During your wedding, you and your guests will experience breathtaking views of Boston’s skyline. Whether you’re looking to accommodate around 125 guests or 350, there are two options. The Hollow is an adorable seaside wooden pavilion with barn-like exposed beams, high open eaves and interior lighting that offers spectacular views of the harbor and downtown Boston. With open sides, you will still have an outdoor wedding reception. Alternately, the North Lawn Pavilion can hold two tents for larger weddings. There are wonderful photo opportunities throughout the island. Newlyweds can take a guided tour around the island on a golf cart
