Marc and Emily adore Boston. Their relationship started in this city. After meeting online, their first date consisted of going out for coffee, and then going to church together. Their Christian identity has been a pillar of their relationship from the beginning, followed closely by their relationships with friends and family.
From early on in their relationship, Marc made it clear that he was committed to Emily and to her loved ones. When he came over for dinner, he would bring extra wine for Emily’s roommates. He was always willing to sit down for some Netflix romantic comedies or some Gilmore Girls, and he understood the importance of Emily having time to devote to her friends.
Now, they both attend graduate school in the city: Marc is studying biochemistry at MIT, and Emily is studying architecture at Harvard. So when it came time to plan their wedding, they knew they wanted to share this city with their loved ones, giving each of them a taste of New England life.
The ceremony was held on the grounds of Glastonbury Abbey in Hingham, Massachusetts. It was a perfect blend of tradition and the couple’s desire for an event that spoke to their relationship specifically. This wedding was not just the joining of two individual lives, but the union of two families.
The wedding reception was held in a private beach house in Hull, Massachusetts. The home has tall ceilings and is brimming with art; combine those features with an ocean view and years of family history, and the couple had their perfect wedding venue. Emily and Marc stuck with neutral tones in order to highlight the ocean’s beauty. To truly give their loved ones an authentic Massachusetts experience, they served a family-style seafood feast for dinner.
Marc and Emily are a couple that care intentionally for the needs of all people around them. It was a gift to be present on such a meaningful day, and to help them capture beautiful memories.
