This Alden Castle wedding was the first of the season for me and I am so excited to be sharing it with you all! We started with their getting ready photos at Hotel Commonwealth in Boston. Sara’s suite had a huge deck with Fenway park right in the background! It was very cool and iconic. After their first look and some portrait photos at the start of Commonwealth Ave we headed to Alden Castle where they had their ceremony and reception. Twig and Briar did the gorgeous florals.
Sara and I met through my mother in law, Karen. Karen was Sara’s teacher in high school and Sara’s mother and Karen have stayed good friends through the years. When I saw that Sara had just bought a puppy pug a little over a year ago I immediately asked for her breeder’s info and got in contact. We ended up getting Stanley through the breeder and he is actually the half brother of Sara and Brian’s pug! This immediately connected us and allowed us to develop a friendship. I have loved getting to know Sara and Brian and watch little Sonny over on Instagram. Their little family is adorable and I am excited to see where our friendship takes us in the continuing years!
I thoroughly enjoyed hearing Sara and Brian’s friends give their speeches. I love hearing a second hand account of who my couples are from the mouths of their friends. It always confirms the feelings I have about them and this day was not short of that. Sara is a loyal and generous friend; level headed and grounded. She takes care of people and is the definition of selfless. I loved watching her interact with her people at the reception. She made a point to go around and greet everyone and I could see her how important her family and friends were to her. This girl has a heart of gold. Brian is the biggest goof ball and life of the party. He had me laughing all night. This guys put his family and friends first as well and made sure everyone was having the best time on that dance floor! These two are the perfect combination of fun and caring.
