Bonnie and Kevin were married at Arnold Arboretum on a beautiful sunny day!
They played in a band together for years, so they are super cool and stylish. As their guests arrived I kept marveling at all the cool outfits. Musicians know how to dress up!
Bonnie and Kevin decided to have an intimate, low-key wedding.
The day started off with everyone meeting up at Article 24 restaurant where the reception would be held later.
Article 24 is a super cool restaurant with great decor. Look at that skull wall!
Kevin's father greeting his grandchildren was adorable!
From there everyone loaded up on the bus to head to Arnold Arboretum!
The ceremony was held in an open courtyard.
Kevin's face lit up when he saw Bonnie!
Everyone was all smiles!
Kevin and Bonnie had each guest bring a stone to put in a jar as part of their ceremony. They made sure to incorporate their friends and family in the ceremony and it was so heartwarming!
They had moments of Earth (stones), air (deep breaths), water (drinking- gotta stay hydrated on a hot day), and fire (candles) to ground the ceremony and add a spiritual element.
Kevin got a little teary-eyed during the ceremony so Bonnie wiped them away. It was so sweet!
These portraits were candids taken immediately after the ceremony. Bonnie and Kevin were so happy! It was adorable!
Kevin and his nephew.
Kevin and his sister.
Kevin and his grandmother.
The whole gang!
After family portraits the guests headed back to the restaurant and Bonnie and Kevin and I bopped around the Arboretum for forty-five minutes taking portraits.
Then it was back to Article 24 for dinner and dancing!
The coolest wedding party ever.
Bonnie s l a y e d her bridal portraits!
We did one last set of portraits during sunset. This sign was custom made for Bonnie and Kevin. When they were first dating they felt like saying "I love you" all the time was too cheesy, so they decided to go with "Glub. Glub." instead.
Bonnie and Kevin did their parent dances together.
Bonnie's dad nailed the dip!
It was time for shots of maple syrup and then I was done!
Bonnie and Kevin were such a kind, cool couple and I loved getting to spend the day with them and capture their love!
