This weekend Alicia and Aharon were married at the Radisson in Chelmsford. I have known Aliciaâ€™s family for almost 2 years now; I photographed Aliciaâ€™s Sister Stacey and brother-in-law Brianâ€™s wedding in 2007 (some of their wedding photography is in my online portfolio.) Stacey and Brian were the maid of honor and best man, so it was fun to see them again, too. Stacey and Aliciaâ€™s father informed me that after photographing both of his daughtersâ€™ weddings, I am now the â€œofficial family photographer.â€
The bride and groom added some great personal touches to their wedding. Alicia was inspired by Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City to wear shoes by Manolo Blahnik – she confessed they cost more than the dress. Aharon, who works at Berklee College of Music in Boston, is an accomplished drummer. He demonstrated this during the cocktail hour, when he sat in with the jazz trio for an impromptu jam session.
The Radisson in Chelmsford is a lovely reception site for a wedding, with a grand staircase well suited for photography. The banquet staff and the wedding director, June Wellington, kept the event running smoothly. And the music and dancing was again facilitated by Ernie Houle of Locomotion DJ (see last weeksâ€™ wedding). He and I just keep running into each other at weddings in the Merrimack Valley.
All in all, everyone had a great time and it was wonderful to see these two married. They are such a wonderful couple.
Enjoy some photography from the wedding:
