Boston Engagement Session On Rose Kennedy Greenway - Hayley & Andrew

Lynne Reznick

Boston Engagement Session Rose Kennedy Greenway

This Boston Engagement Session on the Rose Kennedy Greenway was so so sweet! Hayley and Andrew met in college and became good friends. They went on their first date by accident - Hayley invited their friends group to a movie and Andrew was the only one who ended up being able to go! After that, they went out for pizza and went rollerskating (how awesome!?) on a real, or at least intentional, first date and the rest is history! They love spending time together and being active together and they learned how to snowboard together when they first started dating. So it was only fitting that Andrew proposed on the mountain on their first snowboarding excursion last winter! He started the proposal on the chair lift on the way up the mountain and finished at the top of the mountain. Hayley said she was really excited but that it was so cold she needed to put her gloves back on right away and had to wait to wear the ring until after they were done snowboarding for the day! Andrew is in the Air Force and will spend the next few months deployed before returning to finish wedding planning for their fall wedding next year. And the sweetest part, they're getting married on the same mountain where they got engaged! 

These two are so so sweet and were naturals in front of the camera. They won the session, along with hair and makeup for Hayley through an Instagram giveaway I did with the talented ladies of Maricruz Hairstyles and Glamour Cosmetics and we all loved meeting them and working with them. Hayley wanted the photos to be green and reflect their love of nature, even in the city, so we stuck to the Rose Kennedy Greenway and it was the perfect green space! And we ended at Faneuil Hall for some photos with ice cream because, why not?! But really because they love ice cream and plan to have a sundae bar at their wedding and wanted to tie it into their engagement session too. Thee ice cream pics of them smiling and sharing and being a goofy are some of my favs!

Congratulations Hayley & Andrew - I loved photographing your love story and I couldn't have asked for a sweeter couple to win the session! XO

Glen Manor House Wedding - Amethyst & Zev

Glen Manor House Wedding Spring Rain Bride and Groom

Glen Manor House Wedding

Amethyst and Zev's Glen Manor House wedding was romantic and it was also so much fun! They had an incredible day because they embraced the rainy weather and let their love for each other shine through all day long. Amethyst first met Zev when she was still living in New York. She came to Boston to visit a friend and that friend, her (matron of honor!) ended up running into Zev and introducing the two of them by chance while she was hosting Amethyst for the weekend. And as fate would have it, Amethyst knew the two friends that Zev was with that evening as well - talk about a small world! They ended up talking all night long and totally hitting it off before Amethyst headed back to NYC. After a year of dating long distance, Amethyst moved to Boston and they got engaged!

Getting Ready At Glen Manor House & East Island Reserve Hotel

The ladies started with hair and makeup at the East Island Reserve Hotel. The hotel is adorable, light, bright, and nautically decorated, and it's just minutes from Glen Manor House so it was perfect for hair and makeup. Amethyst had an all-star team for the day that included hairstylist Kiley O'Connor and makeup artist Jessica D'Amore. Kiley gave all of the girls subtly glam looks with soft partial updos and a polished chignon for Amethyst. And Jessica completed their looks perfectly with dewey faces and glossy pops of color on the lips. The ladies then ducked into cars as the rain started to really come down so they could put their dresses on at the venue. And what a dress Amethyst wore! It was a Rosa Clara design that she found at Ceremony in Boston. The beading and the feathers were perfect and they subtly alluded back to the twenties when the mansion was built and she looked stunning. Absolutely stunning! Glen Manor House has both a beautiful bridal suite and a well appointed grooms suite on the second floor of the mansion. The house was completed in 1923 and the decor and and architecture still reflect the French inspiration the architect pulled from to create the unique house. Needless to say, the house was the perfect setting for Amethyst and Zev to each finish getting ready before they saw each other for their first look. There were toasts to the bride and groom and lots of hugs, smiles, and laughter.

First Look & Portraits On the Terrace

One of the many wonderful things about Glen Manor House is the large covered terrace on the side of the house. It is beautiful with archways and trellises and it was the perfect spot for first look and bridal party portraits that allowed us to get gorgeous natural light, include the beautiful architecture, and keep everyone dry in the wet weather! Amethyst and Zev were so excited to see each other - their first look was so sweet! They also lucked out with a break in the hard rain and they were determined to get some photos on the water, so we ventured down to the docks. Zev is such a gentleman and was so attentive to Amethyst. He leant her his jacket to warm up on the walk and between photos and they were always naturally connected, smiling, laughing, cracking jokes, and just loving on each other.  Then we headed back to the terrace and brought their bridal party and family down for portraits before the ceremony.

Glen Manor House Wedding Ceremony

The Ceremony was beauitful and funny! They said their own vows and they were so sweet and their deep love for each other shone through for sure. But these two are also hilarious and love to laugh together and they each had the whole place rolling during their vows - especially Amethyst who said at one point, and I quote "I love you more than the Kardashians love botox!" lol! I was cracking up behind the camera!

Party Time!

After the ceremony Amethyst and Zev were able to sneak a few minutes alone together and then they joined their guests for cocktail hour and a lovely meal by Russell Morin Catering. Amethyst worked closely with her amazingly talented wedding planner Renee of Urban Soiree Boston who made sure every part of the day went smoothly and looked impeccable. Amethysts vision was for blush and cream with gold and greenery as accents and Renee did a great job of bringing that inspiration to life in a beautiful vision where no detail was left undone. The centerpieces and all the florals for the day were stunning and brought a cheery light elegance to the day - they were done by Pranzi Catering & Events.

After dinner the party got started with a surprise choreographed first dance and some great dancing tunes from Beat Train Productions. These two spoiled their guests all throughout the day. There were blankets for guests if they got cold during the ceremony. Zev made sure to have cigars available later in the evening on the terrace and Amethyst baked not one, but two cakes, as well as cookies! You see, she surprised Zev with a groom's cake in addition to having made their wedding cake. She's an incredible baker and wanted to do the baking herself - a huge task to undertake as the bride, but the cakes were absolutely stunning and delicious, as were the cookies! And in a break from the rain we got outside one more time for some portraits in front of the mansion. Thanks to my amazing second photographer that day Lauren Termini!

Rustic Chic NH Wedding At Spofford Lake - Anne & Asher

Lynne Reznick

rustic lilac camp spofford new hampshire wedding

Anne and Asher celebrated their wedding at Camp Spofford, a New Hampshire camp on the edge of Lake Spofford that they also both work at, so it held a particularly special meaning to both of them. Anne is my second cousin and when we were little we'd see each other a couple of times a year on major holidays like the Fourth of July and Easter. As we got older, our families saw less of each other and in the blink of an eye it had been about 15 years since I last saw Anne and her family. So it was an incredibly special honor when she reached out and asked me to photograph her wedding. The day was extra special because I got to reconnect with Anne and her siblings and parents and document their beautiful family now that we've all grown up. Needless to say, my heart was bursting the whole day and it felt so so good to bear witness to the start of Anne and Asher's marriage.

 

Getting Ready

Anne got ready at her parent's home. The farm house sits on a beautiful piece of land and is full of character and charm, not to mention memories of Anne's childhood. I love that she was able to get ready in a spot so meaningful to her. The lilacs that made up the bouquets and centerpieces for the wedding were largely harvested right from her parents property and then completed by the talented The Village Blooms - another lovely meaningful tie-in that made the day so special. Asher got ready with his friends and family at the home he shared with a few close friends, making his time getting ready a special one as well. 

 

Ceremony

The ceremony was held at their church and was full of special touches as well. Asher's little sister was the flower girl, Anne's sister Joanna played the piano, and four relatives each did readings before Anne and Asher literally tied the knot! Well, not a knot per say, but they did include a lovely braiding ritual in their ceremony that represented their marriage and their commitment to God. Their faith is central in their lives and their relationship and so it was also central in their wedding day. The ceremony was capped off by their sweet first kiss - it was so obvious that they were SO EXCITED to marry each other - loved it! XO

Portraits & Reception

Camp Spofford sits right on Spofford Lake and the grounds made for the perfect backdrop for portraits. Their family and friends were wonderful and had a great time relaxing and snuggling for photos together. The ladies teal dresses were perfect for showing off the gorgeous lilac blooms after some fun bridal party photos, Anne and Asher snuggled up together for couples portraits. They were so emotive and happy and they kept leaning into each other, locking eyes, touching foreheads, and just taking each other in. Their joy was palpable. 

Then they went inside to get their party started! And they had my heart with their cheese wheel cake! Seriously. A cheese wheel cake that they then cut hunks out of and served to guests along with the desserts! It was amazing! Dinner and dancing and some sweet speeches by the MOH and BM capped off a perfect day.

The wonderful team of vendors for the day included:
