You might remember this fun couple from their recent engagement session on their tandem yellow Schwinn cruiser. If so, then you know that are really laid back and love to laugh, relax and just be themselves. My favorite type of people to photograph.
The pair met at the Distillery Open Studios in November, 2010 when Margaux was wandering the building, visiting various artists’ studios and checking out the art. She walked into a studio Nick was hanging out in with several other artists, he offered her a beer and they started chatting. He told her about his studio and showed her some of his paintings.
Nick contacted Margaux shortly after to see about the possibility of having Margaux be the subject of one of his paintings (typical artist). Margaux, of course, said that she would love to pose. They got to know each other a bit more the day that she posed for the photos that Nick would eventually use for a painting. He then asked her out on a date and they have been inseparable ever since!
I met up with the couple again at the Intercontinental Boston where they were preparing for their big day. With the heat in the 90’s and thunderstorms predicted, there was worry about the ceremony which was to take place in the Public Garden.
That obviously didn’t keep a smile off Margaux’s face.
Margaux and her sister share a moment while waiting to prepare for the wedding.
Nick and Karl dress as Kyle plays a little guitar just down the hall from the ladies.
Nick’s nephew and niece, Azev and Zayla lead the way down the “isle” following a flower trail ahead of Margaux and her parents.
Despite being brutally hot, the rain held out. A beautiful space in the Boston Public Garden was chosen to hold the ceremony.
In addition to their intimate group of family and Friends, the couple also had some of the visitors to the park in attendance.
Nick held his vows between his teeth as he placed the ring on Margaux’s finger.
Karl Hendricksen, one of Nick’s oldest and best friends officiated the ceremony.
When the ceremony concluded, Nick Margaux and I set off on a little adventure where I was able to capture a few intimate moments between the two.
A 1937 Cadillac awaited them at the gates of the Public Garden.
As a surprise, Nick’s parents asked the driver to have ready the same champagne that they drank on their wedding night, Perrier-Jouet.
While cruising around, they asked the driver to take them to The Distillery where they both live now for a few photos.
The driver from Christopher Limo was excellent and took us to a variety of destinations in the Seaport for photographs.
Then it was back Downtown to the Intercontinental Hotel where their guests awaited.
Margaux’s father Paul started the evening off with a toast.
With the raising of glasses, the festivities began.
Miel restaurant at the Intercontinental was host to a beautiful reception.
Margaux’s favorite, Ice cream cake from JP Licks.
Conversation and laughter with friends and family filled the remainder of the evening.
For their honeymoon Nick and Margaux drove the West Coast from Portland, OR to San Diego, CA.
Congratulations you two, what a blast!
