In Greek myth, Narcissus was a beautiful young man who rejected all potential lovers, but then tragically fell in love with his own reflection in a pool. Why start a blog like that? Because this is all about Steven–and the simple fact that as beautiful, athletic, sensitive and intelligent as he may be–he is also smart enough to know that Lauren trumps any reflection. Never have I met a man so completely comfortable with himself and so full of self-love that his mere presence is infectious to all around him. Most men could never come close to pulling this off as he can shift between utter machismo and emotionally feminine without skipping a beat. Its takes a special kind of woman to match this stride for stride and Lauren is the perfect fit.
Lauren and Steven chose the magnificent resort at New Seabury and the Popponesset Country Club for their wedding reception. The last time I was here for a wedding 3 groomsmen went skinny dipping in front of all the wedding guests so I was ready for anything this time. Maybe its the salt air but this wedding had an energy that rocked us all night long. I tend to think that the force field that surrounds these two special people could power a small city–as evidenced below. Enjoy. I certainly did.
Jill and Ezra had their wedding ceremony at the Old Ship Metting House in downtown Hingham and then celebrated their reception with hundreds of guests under a gorgeous tent at Jill’s parent’s historical home just around the corner. What a truly great way to spend your wedding day/night complete with Ezra singing a beautiful song he wrote for their marriage.
Michael and Niveen couldn’t have just one wedding. Some with family split on opposite coasts and from all over the World they celebrated twice. Once in the Boston area at the Lyman Estate and the other 10 months later in sunny Santa Barbara, California. For a photojournalist like myself, I was just psyched to photograph these two people (great people), two cultures coming together and just tons of friends and family.
First up was the Lyman Estate on a wicked cold New England winter night in January that made for some spectacular visual imagery of their Pakistani wedding ceremony and reception. Then, it was off to Santa Barbara for a beautiful beach ceremony and crazy outdoor California reception amongst the palm trees of the West Coast.
