Rhonda & Mark at the Park Plaza – Part 2

This 12-hour wedding deserved two complete posts, so Part 2 picks up just after the ceremony!

Mark had a definite sense of the style they wanted for the reception. With the help of Emilie from Pink Orchid, as well as flowers from blueGuava and lighting from ALPS, the reception became like a spring forest, complete with flowering branches and projected shadows of trees on the walls.

Mark wanted a true focus on documentary coverage, so we only did candids of the two of them during the day. Not a single posed photo! A definite departure from the norm, but it allowed me to really focus on candids of the couple, such as at their first dance:

The parent dances were especially moving.

DJ Kristin Korpos did a phenomenal job with the music – she kept the dance floor packed all night!

Rhonda & Mark’s Boston Wedding – Part 1

Rhonda and Mark were married in an early Spring wedding in Boston, followed by a reception at the Park Plaza. The day was simply amazing for several reasons. Rhonda was one of the calmest brides I’ve ever worked with. Both Rhonda and Mark just completely enjoyed the day and were living in the moment. The families and bridal party were so fun to work with, and the reception turned into a complete and total dance party. I was photographing for almost 12 hours, almost double the normal length of time, so I figured that called for a double blog post!

Coordination: Pink Orchid

Rhonda’s Dress: Junko Yoshioka

Makeup: Demiche

Flowers: blueGuava

Lighting: ALPS

Music: Kristin Korpos

Rhonda and the bridesmaids got ready at the W hotel. The lighting in there is a photographer’s dream – so many windows!

Stay tuned for Part 2!
