Heirloom Wedding Albums - Why They Matter

Lynne Reznick

Boston Wedding Photographer Lynne Reznick Photography Heirloom Linen Wedding Album with Engraving

Your wedding album matters because your wedding matters.

Your wedding is the start of lives lived truly and inseparably together. It is the start of a commitment to be partners, to be best friends, to conquer challenges and face the highest highs and the lowest lows - together. And the people you share your wedding day with matter - those who show up not just on your wedding day, but on all of the days before and after, the ones who show you love and support, the family members who drive you crazy and love you fiercely all at the same time. Yes, your wedding day is also special because of the details and the dress and the flowers. Those are beautiful and they matter, too. But what means the most is the marriage you're creating; the life you’re pledging to make together as you go forth hand-in-hand. Your wedding matters in ways that go well beyond that single blissful day.

Afterward, the images from your day will help you relive the moments and bring the emotions flooding back.

And you're more likely to look back at them more often if they're printed. Over the years, Scott and I have looked back at our album together and separately. We pull it out to show new friends who have come into our lives in the years after our wedding. We pull it out to see loved ones who have since passed away. We reminisce at each anniversary by turning the pages and being whisked back to the exact moments each page captures.

And when we fight or life gets hard, and it does sometimes, I've pulled that album out to remind myself of how young we were, how in love we are, and how far we've come together.

It’s my sincere belief that one of the things that will last as long as my marriage is our wedding album. It will remain a legacy to our love, an integral part of our family history. There is no social media platform or technology that is guaranteed to last as long. Facebook may evolve into something completely different and my nephew's computer may not even have a spot to put a flash drive one day soon. The beauty of the album is its analog simplicity and the tangible way it holds our memories and our love for generations to come. 

Your wedding album matters because your love story matters.

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!

Wedding Planning: Bridal Bouquet Inspiration

I must have flowers always and always.  --Claude Monet

proteas bridal bouquet inspiration for wedding planning

With our first major storm of the year, I thought some gorgeous blooms might be the best medicine. Here are some of my lovely brides and their amazing bouquets to entice and inspire you!

Which style is your favorite? Do you go for the all white bridal bouquet? Or maybe the bright bouquet to add a pop of color? Or are wildflowers and greens more your style? Do you like the idea of matching your bridesmaids or have them carry the inverse of your bouquet? Is there an talisman or memento that you'll carry along as a family tradition or for sentimental reasons?Decisions, decisions! 

Enjoy scrolling through all of the pretty and here's hoping you get inspired by the beauty and artistry. XO
