Renee and Steve at Boston Harbor Hotel

So Renee and Steve's big day finally arrived on July 30, 2010!  I've been excited since I photographed their Engagement Session ... actually, no ... since before that!  Not long after I photographed Steve's brother's wedding - I got the call about Renee and Steve's engagement so, it's been since then that I've been eagerly awaiting their wedding!  :-D

Mike Picard from Mike Picard Videography was there to provide videography service - I always have a great time working with him.

What a Team! ACTION "Mike and Sara getting the perfect shot"

I got to the Boston Harbor Hotel, where Renee was getting ready - she was just radiant.  Simply classic in elegance - the only way to explain the vision.

Renee's colors were purple and white and the shades she chose were perfect - everyone looked gorgeous!

We did the formals prior to the wedding and we totally rocked the city of Boston during the day!  The day was perfect and the night was was scored by Mystique and everyone continued to rock the night away ... just a little louder and funkier!

Had a fantastic time with Renee and Steve ... I wish them every happiness in the world!!!

Bedazzled shoes!
Finally!  The moment their eyes first met on their wedding day.
Rockin' Boston ...

Vegas Weddings?

I just got back from a really fun destination wedding in Vegas!  While I was pursuing the city, It really hit me how many wedding chapels there are in Vegas. I just happened to step into one chapel, and pick up a pamphlet.

Anyone planning on eloping? I mean, I can't beat their package price of $70, but I am fun to be with! :)

Meggan and Christopher Exchange Vows in Italy.

Meggan and Christopher decided to exchange vows in Italy. When they told me that they would be hosting their ceremony in Italy, I was super excited! Being an Italian myself, that is the type of romantic ceremony I can picture myself having. 

Their reception was not hosted in Italy though, it was at the beautiful Aldrich Mansion in Warwick, RI on August 6th, 2010. But, before we headed to the Aldrich Mansion, we met in Providence first to take pictures. We roamed around the city, clicking and snapping away with every opportunity we got! When we were finally satisfied with all our images, we rode back to the Aldrich Mansion, it was time to party!

When I thought Meggan and Christopher couldn't have been any cuter, they proved me wrong! They danced their first dance on the back porch of Aldrich mansion. Their friends, family and loved ones gathered on the outside patio and watched with joy as Meggan and Christopher danced for the first time together in the US, as husband and wife.

The night progressed and it was such a great time, I didn't think it could have gotten any better! That's when Meggan and Christopher brought me into the desert room! It was in heaven! Everything looked so good, I could barely contain myself!

This wedding really hit home with me, being an Italian, I honestly appreciated every aspect of it. From the ceremony in Italy, to the desert room, and the gathering of loved ones to celebrate a great couples vows.

 I am so excited to design Meggan and Christopher's album and watch as their 
Italian ceremony and American reception come together!
