We first talked to Celia and Jake two years ago when Celia sent us an email asking about having Jason as her photographer. We knew from the beginning that they would be a fun couple as Celia shared some of their likes and dislikes, including her love of baking and Jake’s love of penguins. We kept in touch with emails through their planning and we were excited for them as wedding details started to come together and even more excited when they officially decided to have us on their wedding team for what was sure to be a fantastic wedding in the Boston area! Jason met them for their mini golf engagement session a year ago and their personalities were the same in person as they were through the emails. They were a blast to hang out with, creative, super nice, and perfect for each other. Jason could not wait to see them again in Boston for their wedding.
When Jason arrived at his hotel in Boston, Celia and Jake had a welcome package waiting complete with wedding info, a map of Boston, a brochure of their venue, and yummy treats like a lobster lollipop and Cape Cod potato chips. The wedding weekend started with the couple’s rehearsal. Paula of Marrero Events was the wedding planner and Jason enjoyed meeting her as everyone gathered at the couple’s beautiful venue, the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, to practice for the big day. After the rehearsal Celia and Jake hosted a welcome dinner at Jasper White’s Summer Shack Restaurant. It was a great evening with Celia, Jake, and their close friends and family.
The next morning Jason was at the Westin Waltham Boston to join Celia as she got ready for her wedding day! Christine and Holly of Wedding Tresses were there doing hair and makeup for the girls. Everyone then headed over to the venue where Celia and Jake had their first sight. It was wonderful to see the emotion in that moment. When they looked at each other, you could see that Celia and Jake are two best friends who are completely in love. Boston Wedding Films was the videographer for the wedding and they were awesome. Other vendors for the day included Karla Cassidy Designs for flowers, Different Tastes as the caterer, cupcakes from Jenny’s Wedding Cakes, and the DJ from C-Zone Music.
It was an amazing wedding day. You could see the thought and hard work that Celia and Jake put into every detail to make sure that their wedding vision came to life and that it reflected them as a couple. The origami at the ceremony, the reading of Me Too Iguana, a Chinese Tea Ceremony, lion dancers, a lounge area at the reception, a photo booth, and beautiful red details made Celia and Jake’s day unique and a perfect fit for the two of them. Jason was honored to be there to share in the day and capture the memories. Thank you so much to the Celia and Jake! It is you two who are Amaze-Balls!!! It was a gorgeous wedding for an awesome couple and we are so happy to have been part of it. Please be sure to stay in touch!
