Lenox Hotel Wedding
I remember meeting Regina at the BPL to discuss her wedding. She told me about her long relationship with her beloved Joe and their vision for an Old World Boston feel to their wedding. The clarity of her vision was inspirational, and she’s a detail-executor extraordinaire, which made the very full day in Boston—including a full Catholic mass at Our Lady of Victories and bridal party photos in the Boston Common before an epic dance party to close out this Lenox Hotel wedding—a day of unspeakable joy.
The events were perfectly planned, and yet some of the best moments were spontaneous, like the flower girl from another wedding wandering into their portrait (see below) and a few photos in the dimly lit Lenox Hotel lobby. It was unlike any portrait of a couple I’d done before: it was cinematic and played off of the vintage decor, and yet Regina and Joe are very much themselves in it—I was thrilled when they chose it for their thank you card!
Most importantly, both Regina and Joe are very close to their loving and fun families. I loved catching little moments and affection between family members, especially the ones of Joe and his grandma (see below)!
One of my favorite things about being a wedding photographer is the chance to explore unique places, and I enjoy playing with interesting elements of a venue; historic Boston never disappoints! We got many fun and romantic candids in the Lenox’s elevator. (I’ve included a couple here; make your way to the Facebook gallery if you want to see more!)
Of course no Lenox Hotel wedding is complete without a journey to its famous (yet tiny!) rooftop. Although we did get the iconic sign in a few photos, my favorite shot was the two of them looking off toward the Boston night skyline.
Happy Anniversary Regina & Joe!

One more fun thing! Regina rocked her heavy frames at the beginning of the reception. So gracefully so that this image was featured in the Huffington Post article 12 Bespectacled Brides Who Rocked Glasses At Their Weddings.
