One thing I’ve learned during this pandemic is that where there is a will to be married, there is a way. I’ve been touched by how people are finding ways to make life work and safe ways of celebrating together. Quarantining together this spring in a family home on the Cape, J&J decided to get married. They contacted me over the summer and said that their Cape Cod wedding would happen in the fall. They worked out dates with family and key vendors, and decided on a backyard wedding at the end of September.
Pamela and Sam planned their 2020 wedding back in 2019, before we had ever heard of COVID19. We even had our photo planning call, where we talked about their Harvard Art Museum wedding and having their first look somewhere along the Charles River. As the summer wore on we realized that their big museum wedding with so many guests wouldn’t be happening this year…
Kayla and Peter’s wedding was originally going to take place at Blithewold Mansion in Rhode Island. By mid-spring, we knew that the big party would have to be put on hold. However they still wanted to be married in 2020 and to be able to share that moment with their immediate family and closest friends.
Like so many 2020 couples, their wedding plans took an unexpected turn because of the COVID19 pandemic. When they originally booked me for their Boston Public Library wedding, little did we know that we would soon be in the middle of a history-making moment in time.
Ellie and Sam’s wedding was about family and home, generations, the past and the future, and the natural landscape of Massachusetts. I hope that these images will tell a story to future generations about who these people were and what they felt like on that day in early October.
