Spring Outdoor Same-Sex Wedding Ceremony at Arnold Arboretum

I’ve always loved photographing weddings and engagement sessions at the Arnold Arboretum in Boston. The nice weather, the outdoors and nature make for a great backdrop. I could not ask for anything better for Jennifer and Shereta’s wedding ceremony at the arboretum. The forecast predicted heavy rain throughout the day but it took a 180 and it was sunny and warm. We totally lucked out and I was so happy because the natural lighting was perfect. Jennifer and Shereta started getting ready at the Westin Copley Hotel. Since they were from out of state (Atlanta), they got a Uber van to take them and the 4 family members to the Arnold Arboretum. It worked out perfectly because the van could only take 6 passengers.

This was in front of the Boston Public Library. Shereta went to MIT so I thought they would appreciate this :)

We arrived at the Arnold Arboretum and found this awesome big pink blossomed tree – perfect backdrop of their ceremony. I also loved that the reverend was wearing a rainbow-colored stole. We chatted after the ceremony ended and he usually had his couples pick what color/style of stole they preferred and Jennifer and Shereta picked the rainbow. I thought it was awesome.
