There is nothing quite like love, as I showed you in my sneak peek of Monica and Andrey’s wedding in Boston this April. Here is their story!
Monica got ready at the beautiful Langham Hotel in Boston’s downtown financial district. Her older sister is putting in her veil while her niece looks on
Do you see the little angel charm in her bouquet? It’s to remember Monica’s mother, who passed away
Monica, you are so, so gorgeous!
One great moment I like is when the bride meets her father. It’s obviously a very different emotion than a First Look, but incredibly precious, and also quite an emotional moment
The First Look
One of the honored guests was Monica’s grandmother. I think this portrait is simply gorgeous
I hope you can see how caring Andrey is throughout the photos. He is protective of Monica and was able to meet Monica’s mother prior to her passing away and have her blessing.
I think what I really appreciate about this couple is how they’re very honest with each other and how much they respected each other’s opinions
The wedding ceremony and reception were held at the UMass Club of Boston. Before we headed up, I grabbed a modern portrait of Monica in the lobby
This was when the minister spoke of Monica’s mother and everyone teared up a little bit
Monica’s sister, Keira, recalled the day that Monica was born
Many of Andrey’s family members are in Brazil and could not make it up to Boston for their wedding so they will be having another wedding there. However, it was absolutely wonderful seeing his parents present. Andrey’s mother gave a touching toast as well, welcoming Monica into their family and offering herself as another mother figure
This wedding could dance! The floor was lively all night long
A ring shot to round out the night!
Congratulations to you both! Thank you so much for being so inspiring with your love, and I wish you nothing but the best!
