With their first official date across the Atlantic Ocean in Barcelona followed with years of long distance, Teresa and Bill finally wed together on a gorgeous day in Boston with big smiles on their faces. Their happiness and enthusiasm was contagious, I really enjoyed being at their wedding and partying it up with their friends. You can see how much they care about each other in the way they hold hands, look at each other, and enjoy life together. For example, when Bill visited Teresa in Seattle for a weekend, she surprised him with a trip to the Boeing factory because he loves airplanes. In turn, Bill undertook one of the most analytic tasks known to man – finding the perfect diamond ring for Teresa. He did deep research into the 4Cs and as you will soon see, he did a super, fantastic job finding something that would grace and enhance Teresa’s beauty. I am so excited for these to embark on a life together, and I know there will be countless adventures in the future once you find your new home!
Did you know that if you send your wedding invitation to the White House, you get a card back from the President?
I love all the beautiful lace details and flowers in Teresa’s Oleg Cassini dress. Her veil was so soft, ethereal, and feminine, just like her. There was a lot of romance in this wedding
Teresa and Bill bent tradition and got ready together at the Four Seasons Boston hotel. I love this sweet moment in between them
First look at the grand staircase
Their wedding was right at the peak of peony season (late May through early June) – and these beautiful, pink layers were a dream. Table & Tuulip did a fantastic job on all the flowers!
Teresa – you are so beautiful, inside and out!
We went outside to the Boston Public Gardens for more portraits
We had to bribe the flower girl – a daughter of Bill and Teresa’s friend – with lots of cookies
As the officiant spoke during their beautiful and intimate wedding ceremony, I couldn’t help but smile at seeing how much Teresa and Bill were in love, looking at each other
Teresa’s friend made the table numbers, and the super adorable fish-shaped pouches held candy. Symbolically, the fish also stand for good luck
The Four Seasons always has excellent food. Their wedding menu included lobster bisque and lobster ravioli to start, and guests had a choice of filet mignon or fish
Thank you Teresa and Bill for having me at your wedding, it was truly an honor and privilege to know you guys and be able to make your dreams come true!
