A Red Sox T-Shirt Wedding Favour
I was thrilled when Randy and Yin mei asked me to fly to Boston to be their wedding photographer. After we flew into new York we drove up to Boston for the wedding. It was a perfect autumn day in the historic city of Boston, Massachusetts when Randy and Yin Mei tied the knot. The wedding was in the Paulist Center and then on to Boston Common for the portraits. The reception was at the Hellenic Center in Ipswich. We had covered Randy and Yin Mei’s wedding in Malaysia earlier in the year and were thrilled when they invited us to come to Boston. Both Randy and Yin Mei are classically trained musicians from Juilliard, and we were treated to a beautiful recital by them after the wedding ceremony.
The Hellenic Center is in Ipswich, more than an hour out of town. It was beautiful and refined and the atmosphere was warm and intimate…well at least until the dancing started in earnest. In Randy’s family there is a tradition of tossing the groom. You will see this in one of the last few photos when he is riding on some of his cousins shoulders. He was tossed high enough to touch the roof! I couldn’t watch!
The Boston Red Sox T-Shirt was a wonderful wedding favour. I still wear mine! I would LOVE to go back to cover more weddings in the USA, so if you are intending to have your wedding there do let me know.
