Real Weddings: Grace and Tim

Today's real wedding photos are from Grace and Tim, who were married this past May at Park Street Church, a historic landmark built in 1809 across from the Boston Common, followed by a reception at The Downtown Harvard Club. Grace is one of my dear college friends who had been working on the other side of the world in Shanghai for many years. Her wedding marked a joyous welcome back to the States, but not without some bumps along the way!

The week before the wedding I came down with a severe case of bronchitis, and I couldn't stop coughing. My mom and several friends came early to help us with wedding preparations, since I was in really bad shape. My husband Tim was amazing and did so much that week. Through their TLC, prayers, and help, I woke on the morning of our wedding without a cough, and with a deep sense of joy and peace about everything.

Grace's favorite moment of the day was walking down the aisle and seeing all of their loved ones in one place. She said she was so happy that she cried. (Not a surprise to me of course).

The bridesmaids were asked to pick their own style dress from the Alfred Sung collection in Seaside dupioni, paired with ivory pashminas. Springtime is still chilly in Boston!

When they first got engaged, Grace sent an email to a handful of recently married good friends, asking for advice on engagement and wedding planning. She was surprised to receive many long and thoughtful responses, covering everything from how much time to budget for getting ready, to finances, to how to ask others to help. Even before the wedding and especially on the day of, Grace was touched by their kindness and helpfulness.

Congratulations Grace and Tim! The love and happiness that overflowed on your wedding day is just the start of a beautiful and joyous life together.
