Taj Boston Same-Sex Wedding Ceremony: Betsy & Jenna

January 24, 2014

Nothing is more heart warming than two fabulous people coming together and making a commitment to spend the rest of their lives together. I’m lucky enough to witness and document such a special day for Betsy and Jenna tying the knot at the Taj Hotel in Boston. It was a snowy/rainy day in Boston and Betsy and Jenna had arrived here from Atlanta earlier in the week. Jenna had a fever and braved it through the ceremony. She was so strong and did the entire session without any issue. I was very touched how supportive their family and friends were. Even though they were not able to attend the ceremony, they sent them lots of gifts and champagne… of course I had to have them toast to each other :)

I was pleasantly surprised to find out the officiant, Janet, was referred by Bernadette Smith, the owner of 14 Stories – a wedding planner who specializes in gay weddings now based in New York (used to be Boston). She’s always been my inspiration and even though I didn’t get to directly work with her, some day I hope I’ll get the chance to.

The ceremony began with overflowing emotions… mostly joy and excitement.

I absolutely loved how Betsy teared up and Jenna went and wiped off her tear. So cute!

I can’t get over how ridiculously cute they are. They deserve happiness and each other and I feel extremely honored that they chose me to document this emotional and joyful occasion.


  1. Betsy is my daughter, and, of course, Jenna is my new daughter-in-law. Their choice was a private ceremony, but I’m so glad we get to witness their marriage by virtue of your beautiful photographs and comments. Thank you so much. They are priceless!
