When I photographed J+D’s surprise proposal earlier this summer in Rockport, MA I sooo hoped that they would contact me to photograph their wedding. They were so adorable together (see them here the day they were engaged), and they couldn’t stop smiling! I knew their energy would be fantastic on their wedding day as well, and I was correct in my hunch.
J+D were married on a warm September day at Cambridge City Hall, a beautiful building that is a wonderful backdrop for an intimate wedding. I love the rich red color of the carpet and seats in the chamber where ceremonies often take place, and the stairways and large windows are awesome for portraits as couples wait their turn with the clerk.
I’ll start with a few of my favorite portraits (how romantic are they in the chamber seats?!) and then go back to the beginning when they arrived that morning. A few things to look for in the photos below:
- If you’re getting married at Cambridge City Hall, BRING CASH!!!! There was a hilarious moment where J had to come back out to borrow the cash needed from his parents because they couldn’t take his credit card.
- D has incredible style. I loved her polka dot dress and flower crown, and the bowtie she helped J get from Korea!
- The hug finale is one of my favorite parts of photographing a wedding ceremony. J+D: there are probably a dozen more hug photos in your full gallery that will be delivered shortly!
Below: the most important $60 that J will ever borrow from his parents.
D’s father couldn’t join them in person, but he was able to see the ceremony in realtime from Korea thanks to video chat technology!
If you’re thinking of getting married at Cambridge City Hall, you can find more information about how to schedule an appointment here. And definitely reach out to me because photographing intimate weddings like these is such a pleasure for a wedding photographer. Congrats to J+D!!!
