Saphire Estate Wedding: Katrina & Ryan
September 21, 2017
Katrina & Ryan's wedding at the Saphire Estate was dreamy perfection! It was the epitome of elegance, a classy affair that was so warmed by the family and friends that came to celebrate.
To think I almost didn't photograph it! When I got a call from Katrina a year prior and listened to her message that a good friend referred her to me, my heart sank when I thought I was already booked that day. When I double checked my calendar, I was so excited to learn I actually had the day open! We met at a quaint bakery in Boston to chat about the wedding and we just clicked, it's magical when I meet couples that just feel like old friends.
The Esplanade and Beacon Hill engagement session was so fun with these two love birds! A perfect way to get to know each other and to calm any camera jitters prior to the big day.
I knew this wedding day would be something special, and it all became real when Katrina was putting on her Audrey Hepburn inspired wedding gown - took my breath away! Watching her mother and sister help her into the dress, honestly I had to hold back the tears as I clicked the shutter to capture that moment...
The grand church ceremony, photos with the bridal party, fun at the cocktail hour mingling, and an awesome reception with tear jerking speeches and first dances - it all came together for the perfect wedding day! As we sneaked away for sunset photos over the lake, it was an absolute joy to capture these moments that Katrina and Ryan envisioned as they embraced melting into the last moments of this dreamy August evening.
You had to be there, but at the very least, you can relive it all through these photos...
Absolutely incredible, wasn't it?! The photos are just a small glimpse into how wonderful it was! I'm so excited for Katrina and Ryan, for everything that awaits them in this married life.
