Stephanie & Wally || Winter wonderland at the Commander's Mansion (1 of 2)

Stephanie had one wish for her winter wedding: snow. As we headed to the church I began to see those tiny little flakes that come out when it's really cold outside... Small flurries. By the time the ceremony was over and Stephanie and Wally were magically transported to the Commander's Mansion by horse and carriage, those big wet flakes were coming down. Stephanie most certainly got her wish that night. And I know she and Wally also had a perfectly beautiful ceremony, with tears and laughter, and a completely rockin' night once the DJ opened the dance floor. All that and the Commander's Mansion in Watertown was decked out in its Christmas finery. Stay tuned for the second blogpost for all the gorgeous details!

Ceremony: St Patrick's Parish, Watertown, MA

The very brave ladies! I wasn't doing too great in my bulky winter coat, scarf, ear muffs and special photo-gloves, but they stuck it out there in 20 degree weather. Whoo! You can also see the beginnings of some small snowflakes here...

And beautiful voices run in the family because her mother and aunt led the congregation as well.
