Warner and Edith and their families were so warm and welcoming that we felt like part of the family by the end of our time photographing their sparkling celebration in Boston this past weekend. It was a joy to watch the both of them include as many friends and family as possible into their wedding details (my favorite detail is this: Edith's mom, Marilyn made one-thousand gold cranes that hung in the Chilton Club for guests to admire and to bring Warner and Edith love and luck in their marriage), and they somehow managed to have time to visit with each of their guests throughout the day.
Some of our favorite parts of the day:
*Edith, her father Jeff, and a handful of her dearest friends walked to the church from the Chilton Club (where they all had gotten ready). During the ten-minute walk down Commonwealth Ave., an elderly couple stopped Edith to congratulate her and tell her that they were celebrating their 40-year wedding anniversary that very day!
*Piper, Warner and Edith's dog, was a fixture at the wedding, appearing as a giant ice sculpture at the rehearsal dinner, on the embroidered napkins given to guests as favors, and in the flesh at the ceremony, as the Westie escorted Warner and Edith out of the church at the end of the wedding!
*The band, Do I Do which kept the dance floor packed the entire night, was just as fun for us to listen to as for all the guests to dance to. (not going to lie, we danced quite a bit while photographing the reception too!) Warner and Edith's first dance, I've Just Seen a Face, by the Beatles, was an upbeat song that had everyone grinning.
We also had the pleasure of photographing Edith and Warner's rehearsal dinner, at Legal Harborside in Boston, and we'll be posting favorites from that in the next few weeks.
Many thanks to Edith and Warner to give us the honor of photographing the loveliest of days, and to all their friends and family for being sweet and photogenic!
