It’s always great having a connection to a couple prior to a wedding. In this case, Daniella was an alumna of the Pingree School — the high school where I used to teach. Although I wasn’t Daniella’s teacher, it’s always fun to have a shared set of experiences. There is no doubt in my mind that you’re going to love this wedding. Daniella and Jay were one of the most laid-back couples I’ve had the pleasure of working with. They also had an incredible eye for detail, making their wedding was a feast for the senses. And of course, it’s always wonderful working at the Boston Public Library. The day began at the Lenox Hotel next door.
