Cambridge City Hall Wedding

Weddings

The Couple

Richard and Rachel found me online after reading the wonderful reviews posted by past families and couples I have worked with. You can read a bit more HEREand HERE . I was actually originally hired for their wedding in the fall of 2019, but they wanted to tie the knot early. They chose Cambridge City Hall for their civil ceremony / wedding. My wedding packages all include a complimentary engagement mini session, so they just ended up using it for this special event. I thought it was a brilliant idea and I was game.

Cambridge City Hall

Cambridge City Hall allows for a lot of flexibility for weddings. I have photographed there on many occasions and they allow the couple to choose the location. The last time I was there I shot on the front lawn since it was summer. This time, the couple opted to keep it indoors because it was January in New England. I think that was a smart idea as it was FREEZING outdoors. They were brave enough to step outside for 5 minutes at the end to get some outdoor photos and you can see those toward the end of this post.

Cambridge City hall has a lot of great architecture so I had to make the most of the beautiful word work. The ceremony itself was short and sweet and clocked in around 6 minutes. You have to move and think quickly to capture enough images before it’s all over. The bride made her very own bouquet from Trader Joe’s flowers and I think it turned out brilliantly.

Time for some portraits. As you can see there is about a foot difference in height between these two.
Stairs come in handy for minimizing that height difference.
