This wedding is one of those weddings that I can’t say enough about. First off, I love all my couples, but some just become favorites due to the way we know each other, the way we met or how we interact. Holly and Alan are one of those couples.
First, I’ve know Holly since 7th grade. We use to be friends in Junior High School. I went on to a private school, and lost touch with her. Funny enough, after all these years, we reconnected through Facebook. She kept saying “when I get married, I am SO having you shoot my wedding”. Well, the day came, and she called. I sat down with her and Alan, and INSTANTLY fell in love with them as a couple. First off, you can’t help but love Holly. She’s sweet, personable and so funny. We talked about the woes of home ownership, the work they were doing on their house and how much work our new house has been. Then, I asked a question I ask everyone “what do you do for work?” They both have such fabulous jobs, and Alan’s job is how they met. Its a cute story and I know I won’t do it justice if I tell it. I just know the “mirror just fell off her car” and she had to bring her car in for service. She swears the mirror fell off, but Alan and friends think she wanted to go back and see him. The rest is history. After hearing that, Alan and I quickly clicked. Not many people know this about me, but I am SUCH a car girl! I LOVE cars. Fact: my first car was a 1977 Lincoln Continental (it could fit 13 people in it. Don’t ask me how I know) Alan and I talked about our favorite cars, and how they were going to have an antique car (1923 Packard) for their limo. I fell in love with these two just watching them interact. You can tell Alan absolutely loves Holly. It’s a love that you don’t just “know” it’s a love you feel. The type of love that you see in movies and swears, doesn’t exist. As a couple, these two click so well, and are so fun together. I love couples that I can feel this from. Love like this, translates well in photos, and you can see it in the engagement photos I did of Holly and Alan back last fall. They are so of my FAVORITE photos ever. It doesn’t help that Holly is beautiful and Alan might be able to double for a Mark Wahlberg look alike . After the wedding, the two of them took off for Hawaii, and took our advice and went to Red Hot Mama’s in Kauai. A hole in the wall taco shack on the side of the road. Alan loved it so much that he went back twice! I could go on and on about these two and their wedding, but I’ll leave it here. We had a beautiful day and the sun stayed out the entire day. They were married at St. Timothy’s in Norwood MA and had the reception at Larz Anderson Car Museum in Brookline.
