Cristina & Harry’s Wedding is really special to all of us here at OLAS for many reasons, the biggest reason being that it was actually a re-marriage. C + H had been engaged for about a year and a half when Cristina’s father was diagnosed with cancer. They knew they wanted to get married before he passed away, and one morning, June 8th, 2011, Cristina just knew it was the day that she and Harry were supposed to get married. They went down to the city courthouse, got a rushed marriage license, and a few hours later were married in front of Cristina’s father, mother, sisters and nurses (who surprised them flowers, and even a cake!). C’s father passed away the following morning, and while they of course miss him daily, they are so grateful to have been able to share such a special moment in their lives with him.
About a year later C + H were re-married by the same reverend who married them at the hospital (a very special detail for them), and C walked down the aisle to a song she and her Dad both loved, “My Girl.” Cristina’s Dad was a huge fan of jazz (and music in general!), so they decided to have a jazz trio play a few of their favorite songs during cocktail hour. As you can see, C + H’s wedding was a day full of meaning and love, and we really love all the different ways they showed those feelings throughout. Another beautiful detail to look out for are the shots of C’s Grandmother’s engagement ring (her something borrowed, something old, and something blue!). Our New England photographer, Graham (+ Richie this time too!), did a stunning job capturing all of the really important aspects of this wedding, as well as representing C + H’s chic, eclectic style. We are loving all the amazing architecture and the creative ways in which Graham and Richie used the venue itself, The Liberty Hotel, throughout all of the photos. C + H’s goal was to share the day with all their loved ones who couldn’t be there the first time, and to make it a celebration Cristina’s Dad would have loved…C + H, we all agree that you accomplished that, and so much more. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of such a special and beautiful day – xoxo!!
