I can’t believe I met this couple over 6 months ago at the Boston Public Gardens for some wedding portraits. The couple was getting married at Boston City Hall and wanted to meet me at the Public Gardens for some wedding portraits of them as a couple and a few of them with their family. They didn’t feel the need to have wedding photos taken at the ceremony but still wanted to document the day. We started off with some family portraits with their parents and other member before moving on to some bridal photographs. The bride looked absolutely beautiful and I loved her dress, which seemed to fit the occasion perfectly. We also had an opportunity to take some photos of the daughter who seemed more interested in the wedding bouquet. Thankfully, it was a beautiful summer day and we were able to find a gorgeous spot. The park is usually busy so I did a little cloning to remove other park guests from across the pond. 🙂 I am so happy that I was able to capture this day for them.
After the photos, the bride and groom along with their families walked over to Charles Street for the reception. Right now I can’t remember where it took place.
If you are interested in taking wedding photos in the Public Gardens, please know that you need to apply for a permit through city hall. A permit is also needed for Kelleher Rose Garden, Back Bay Fens, Christopher Columbus Park Trellis, North End, Jamaica Pond Bandstand, Jamaica Plain, School Master Hill, and Franklin Park, Dorchester.
