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!

Love, love, love that last shot. Such a simple image can say so much!

Sandi & Dominic at Castle Hill in Newport RI

My first wedding of the 2010 season and I was totally in love with it. Sandi & Dom came from NY to have their wedding at Castle Hill in Newport, RI. It was a lovely Saturday in early Spring, an intimate group of 40 people, and two people completely meant for each other.

This actually isn’t a mirror, but it’s a reflective tv. How cool is that?!

Flowers from the fabulous Toni Chandler.

I want those curls!

The guys were patiently waiting outside.

Sandi’s dress was from Morgane Le Fay in NY. So airy and light, just perfect for spring.

I really loved this stairway.

Stay tuned for the ceremony and reception!!

Beautiful pictures!! You really have a great eye. They’re going to have a hard time deciding which get framed on the wall and which get into the album…

Amazing photos, it was truly a magical day !

Dominic Orologio - April 21, 2010 - 12:23 pm

Wow. Just, wow. I’ll write a much more eloquent note of praise when I stop crying. You captured the best day of my life. Perfectly. I don’t know what to say.

Sandi Harari - April 21, 2010 - 7:01 pm

Ditto what my husband said! I got weepy seeing these for the first time. They truly brought me back to what it felt like in those magical moments leading up to the ceremony. Joyelle- I can’t thank you enough for capturing our day with such a warm, modern, romantic sort of eye. I’m not really “into” the usual wedding photography and your style really spoke to us: the odd angles, and graphic feel-seem to resolve in these “perfect” shots that still feel so unexpected and fresh! thank you so much.

Kim - April 23, 2010 - 12:13 pm
