MAURA + JOHN | NOVEMEBER 23, 2019 | BOSTON WEDDING | BRAE BURN COUNTRY CLUB

Y’all, when I walked into Wildflour last June to meet Maura, we just immediately clicked. I don’t know if it was the fact that we both were wearing Jack Rogers, but we hit it off and I was so honored to capture her marriage to John at their Brae Burn Country Club wedding.

Wedding Prep:

Maura + John met through mutual friends and after their first blind date, they were inseparable. When you meet these two you are overwhelmed by their kindness, genuine presence, and graciousness. It’s no wonder given that they both work in service – Maura as a school teacher and John as a police officer/firefighter. When they got engaged in April, they knew they wanted a Boston wedding celebrating their Irish Catholic heritage. Brae Burn Country Club was the perfect venue! Close to Boston, Brae Burn Country Club had a beautiful indoor reception hall with lots of natural light, crisp white walls and gorgeous decor. It was the perfect venue for a November wedding when the weather can be temperamental.

We spent the morning photographing all the beautiful details that Jessica Hennessey Weddings had put together, along with all the bridal party “getting ready” photos. Champagne toasts, gift exchanges and bridal portraits were done by noon and we were off to the First Look. I will just say that it was BRIGHT when we went to do the First Look. With a bridal party of 18, I was so grateful that Maura and John chose to do a First Look!! It definitely allowed for more time to get all the important shots, and also allow them to enjoy their cocktail hour.

Reception Details:

After a Catholic mass complete with a bagpiper walking down the aisle, we got some of that golden light magic outside the church for portraits. We had 10-15 minutes before the bus had to leave and boy did we get some gorgeous, intimate, full of love portraits of Maura + John! Afterwards we basically ran back to Brae Burn Country Club to grab the last light of the day out on the greens. Then it was officially party time!! The outdoor patio was decorated in tons of twinkle lights, hors d’oeuvres were passed, and a Celtic band set the mood. As we all transitioned to the dining room, the soft glow of candlelight, beautiful blue table linens and twinkle lights welcomed the guests.

The rest of the reception was full of emotional toasts with Smithwicks honoring Maura’s late father, dancing to Young Love & the Thrills, and cake cutting! Oh what a way to end my 2019 wedding season!!
