undefinedBrian and Katherine made this daisy chuppah themselves and were quite proud of it.

How special is that?!?!undefinedundefinedundefinedThe cutest mini attendants ever!undefinedKatherine’s niece, Mia, was told to drop her flowers slowly and one at a time. She took those words very seriously and carefully placed each petal down one at a time, in a straight line. As she was doing this she looked up and noticed one of the daisies lining the aisle and got totally distracted. She walked over to it, picked it out of the ground and….Boston wedding photographer…went and handed it to Brian at the front of the altar area. It was the sweetest thing ever! Everyone started laughing and it definitely added a special memory to their wedding. undefinedIt’s go time!Commanders mansion wedding watertown, MALove those looks!undefinedThe gardens of Commanders Mansion in Waterford made for a gorgeous backdrop for their wedding, and was a beauty to photograph.undefinedThe gardens of Commanders Mansion in Waterford made for a gorgeous backdrop for their wedding, and was a beauty to photograph.undefinedatherine and Brian wrote their own wedding vows which added a really special and emotional touch to their wedding at Commanders Mansion.undefinedKatherine and Brian wrote their own wedding vows which added a really special and emotional touch to their wedding at Commanders Mansion.undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedBoston wedding photographerHusband and wife!!
