Melanie & Ray's Wedding - Boston Marriott Quincy

October 09, 2015  •  3 Comments

 

The day began with heavily clouded skies and torrential downpours. We were a bit early when we arrived at Melanie’s house in the morning to photograph the bride’s preparation. It was raining so hard we decided to wait a few minutes to see if it would subside. Just as the clock turned to 9am, the rain let up; a good sign for the day.

The rain held off just at the right times, when we were transitioning to the ceremony at the Church of St. Brendan in Boston as well as on the way to the wedding reception at the Boston Marriott Quincy.

Melanie and Ray had so many friends and family come in from Ireland that they had not seen in years that the wedding was a jubilant mix of family reunion, party, and wedding. Once dinner had been served, cake was cut, and music turned up the dance floor stayed packed until midnight. By the time the night was over we heard a few guests talking about it as the best wedding ever.

Melanie and Ray – we wish you the best in your married life, and will always remember how fun it was to capture the day & night for you.

Ray was such a riot. The whole day he was getting his groomsmen to crack up with his infectious laugh. Here he is helping his brother, the best man, get ready while sharing a laugh.

It was a hot and humid afternoon as the sun began to break out from behind the clouds, so Melanie and Ray were all too happy to share some chilled champagne following their wedding.
