How do I even begin to describe the gorgeous day that was Caroline & Patrick’s Wedding Day celebration? I first met Caroline and Patrick via Skype from their Norway home and although an ocean separated us, I knew that these two were a special pair. We then had the opportunity to meet in Boston on one of their ventures over here and I heard about their beautiful romance and how Patrick found the love of his life in a foreign country where he was working and knew he had to return to her. A Norwegian beauty, Caroline is as genuinely kind-hearted as she is drop dead gorgeous. Her makeup by Katrina Hess was flawless and I could not imagine a more stunning gown than her Dennis Basso dress from Kleinfeld’s in New York City. My awesome colleague Tara Lyn Zannett joined me at St. Ann’s Church for a heartfelt ceremony full of tears of joy, including Patrick, whose breath was taken away when first seeing his stunning bride. I was in heaven as a wedding photographer as I had an entire portrait session with Caroline and Patrick in the sunny and lush Boston Public Garden. The sun was streaming through the gardens, creating an absolutely beautiful backdrop. Heading to Granite Links Golf Club for their reception, coordinator Linda Blackmore made sure every stunning detail was perfect including florals by Renee VanGestel of Peace Lily Art & Floral, cake by Montillio’s and elegant decor in fuchsia, gold and ivory. Caroline and Patrick’s first dance took everyone’s breath away and tears of joy were shed on the dance floor as those who loved them gathered around. Many speeches told the story of their amazingly strong connection and it was clear that these two have found a love so pure and true. An Irish dancing group rocked the dance floor before guests took to the floor, celebrating Patrick’s heritage in spectacular form. Capturing the setting sun over the Boston skyline, Caroline and Patrick truly had a complete and perfect wedding day celebration. I could not be more in love with this wedding and this awesome couple!
Caroline & Patrick- What a joy it has been to have gotten to know you these past months and to be a part of such a joyous and beautiful celebration! You two are incredible together and I wish you so much joy as you begin your journey as husband and wife. Do keep in touch and know you have definitely won my heart!
