Isabel & John – A State Room Wedding

Isabel and John were married in the beautiful MIT Chapel which gave us access to some of the amazing architecture and grounds around the MIT campus.  The day started at the Ames Hotel in downtown Boston.  The room had these amazing floor to ceiling arched windows.

I was joined by Earl Christie who begin his day with the guys as they got ready:

We found this quiet spot on the 2nd floor of the hotel for Isabel and John to have a private moment together before heading over to MIT’s campus for some pictures.

After a quick bus ride to Cambridge we found a few fun spots to do some group pictures with the bridal party.  It’s always great to have a little extra time so you can play around a little bit!

The chapel is DARK, but has this amazing metal and light display that creates the perfect frame for the couple to be married:

After the ceremony, Isabel and John wanted to sneak away for a few quiet moments and some more photographs.

One of my favorites from the day.  This beam of light streaming through the windows was just to perfect:

After a fun shoot at Cambridge guests headed to the State Room in Boston:

At the beginning of the reception, Isabel and John’s parents participated in a Paebaek ceremony (which is awesome if you’ve never seen one):


Here the parents are throwing fruit to the couple with serious dedication (each fruit caught is supposed to represent a child in the marriage.  I think Isabel and John are due for over 20 children)!

After dinner, Isabel and John changed into more ‘casual’ clothing for the party:
