Last weekend, we were lucky enough to be a part of Jessica and Michael’s beautiful wedding. It was a gorgeous Fall day. Their ceremony took place at the stunning St Mary of the Assumption Church in Brookline followed by their reception was at Alden Castle. It was our first time shooting there, and it was so lovely.
We first met them at the wedding of Andie & Matt several years ago. Jess sang at their ceremony and I remember being in awe. As it turns out, Jess is an extremely accomplished opera singer! I always ask our couples how they met, and here is Jessica and Michaels’s story, as told by Jess!
“Jess and Mike met first at an opera that Jess was in. Jess had been asked to sub in last minute, and Michael had a crush on one of her castmates. At the gathering after the show, Jess was trying to get a feel for if Mike was single or not, and then couldn’t find him on facebook afterward. A few weeks later, she moved to Italy (fed up on dating and wanting to learn Italian) for two and a half months. While she was there, Mike messaged her on an online dating app, and when she returned to New York they had their first date the next week, and the rest is history!”
It was so much fun to see Jessica and Michael and their friends again. Their family was so welcoming! It was such a great day. One of my favorite moments was seeing Jess and her cousins belt out “That’s Amore” on the dance floor in honor of their grandfather, Poppy. This moment sums up their day perfectly: Sweet, fun, emotional and full of joy!
Jess and Mike, thank you so much for choosing us! Enjoy the Italian sunshine (and wine) and cheers to a happy life together!
