Throwback Thursday || Aba & Johan Wedding at Stonehurst
So, now #TBT is a new social media thing! Or maybe it's an old thing, and I'm just completely out of the loop. Either way, I've got a great new Throwback Thursday post for you. Aba and Johan tied the knot in October of 2010 at Stonehurst Estate - aka the Robert Treat Paine Estate - in Waltham, Massachusetts. It was clear fall day, and Aba and Johan were surrounded by their closest friends and family... of course when your immediate family consists of up to 40 people (Aba, with her many siblings plus their spouses and children!), every time you get together it must be a party! The kids really had a great time playing outside on the estate, and getting into the candy bar just a little bit before dinner had started.
Ceremony & Reception: Stonehurst, Robert Treat Paine Estate, Waltham, Massachusetts
We did all the formal photos beforehand so they could relax with their guests during cocktail hour.
Sisters... and sisters! All redheads, I love it.
The wine bottle in the box was part of the ceremony - they each wrote love notes to each other to be opened on their anniversary down the line (5 years? 10 years? I don't remember exactly), or sooner if they just really needed to have a drink and remember why they got married in the first place! I think this is a fantastic idea.
There were quite a few toasts... This is always one of my favorite parts of the night - hearing the funny, touching stories about the couple and their families.
These kids know how to party! :)
