ratana and Mike's wedding was over the top to say the least! We started with getting ready photos at the Fairmont Copley Plaza - right across the street from the Boston Public Library. Pratana & her bridesmaids had their hair and makeup done by Yin Tom Studio before she put on her first (sparkly) dress of the day! The beautiful flowers were designed by my friend and "work-husband" Gregory from Flou(-e)r and he did not disappoint with a trailing bouquet and stunning ceremony and reception florals. Pratana and Mike had their first look in front of the Fairmont Copley before we took a few portraits with the bridesmaids and their insane gold sequin dresses! After portraits we headed to the Old South Church for the ceremony followed by a grand exit with confetti (which I don't often see!), and a horse drawn carriage ride (which I definitely don't often see)! When we arrived at the Boston Public Library we had the whole place to ourselves and were able to hit all of the most epic portrait locations before their guests arrived. The cocktail hour took place in the McKim Courtyard and the bride and groom were introduced in under a military saber arch! There were a lot of moving parts to this wedding and their wedding planner - Liz Quill from Elegant Aura did a fantastic job keeping everything moving (and everyone on schedule). After cocktail hour Pratana changed into her second dress for toasts, cake cutting and dinner by Catered Affair. Pratana's third dress was super flowy with lots of tulle which was perfect for rocking out on the dance floor. At the end of the evening, Pratana performed a ballet dance for Mike which she choreographed herself, and was accompanied by two ballerinas from the Boston Ballet as Mike looked on in awe! A huge thank you to P&M for including me in this incredible day, and my friend and associate photographer Liz Friar!
