Yes it’s June. But that doesn’t mean we can’t look at some wintry inspiration right? We love sharing Holly & Tim’s cozy session today and hope that you love it too!
from the photographer: “Love is a funny thing. We know what love is but the way love manifests can make no sense at all. Life though, has a funny way of presenting love when we least expect it. In the story of Holly and Tim, this is exactly what happened. I can recall planning every detail of Holly and Tim’s engagement session like it was yesterday. Holly tried to think of every location within Boston, MA, that held a special place in their heart. Mind you, Holly is a nurse and was in the midst of planning a volunteer trip to India. At the same time, she was organizing a move across the country and planning a destination wedding. We spent the entire day capturing their love story, from mid-afternoon to sundown. We somehow managed to experience every season of New England. The weather went from absolutely freezing, to snow flurries, rain and then warm. All in a matter of hours. Holly, Tim and I went from Beacon Hill to Seaport, Massachusetts. They handled every season New England threw at them that day as if it was nothing. We laughed, we cried and by the end of our adventure I felt as though I had just spent the day with two of my best friends. They made photographing their engagement so easy.”
How did you two meet? What were your first impressions of one another?
We met on a dating app actually! Our first date was at Burro Bar. I was running late coming from work in the Emergency Department and felt awful about it (also hadn’t eaten in my 13 hour shift). Tim texted me asking if he could order me something and if I liked tacos. My heart melted instantly. Tim says his first impression was that he could tell I had a beautiful energetic spirit that immediately pulled him in.
Tell us a funny story relating to your wedding day or relationship!
We were married in a large air BNB overlooking the mountains of Colorado. During our first dance in the living room we had two deer come right up to the window and watch our entire first dance! It was like they were mesmerized by us and it felt magical.
Describe a hurdle you had to overcome in your relationship or during your wedding planning.
We originally planned to have a small ceremony December 2019 prior to my work in India for a few months and Tim taking a job on the opposite coast of the country. Our big wedding with family and friends was set for August 15, 2020. With so many people coming from all over the globe, we didn’t feel safe continuing during the COVID pandemic so we rescheduled for Fall 2021. Now.. we recently found out we will be bring our first child into the world Fall 2021 so now we have rescheduled it again to Fall 2022! Eventually we will all party together and celebrate! Little one in tow. For now, I’m just so glad that we chose to randomly get married prior to our big day.
Any special ways you incorporated your family or family history into your wedding day?
Because it was a small ceremony in Colorado and Holly’s family can not all travel, we zoomed the in. We had no idea that Zoom calls would soon be the future of 2020.
What part of your wedding day was/is most important to you?
Simply being married and bound to each other at the end of the day.
What is the best thing you’ve learned from one another?
I’ve learned and taking from Tim, his patience and optimism. His loving and kind demeanor. He’s the calm and collected one at all times.
Tim from Holly, how to improve communicating to all those in my life. How to open up and be vulnerable.
What is your favorite thing about each other?
Tim can make me laugh in any situation. Even those I may not want to find funny at the time. It’s part of his ability to not take anything in life too seriously.
I love Holly’s quirky sounds and expressions. She can always make you smile even just with a noise.
What was your favorite part about planning your wedding?
Thinking about all our family and friends finally being together and being able to spend it with them all at the same time. You get to design your own dream for a day!
If you had one piece of advice for other couples, what would it be?
Be honest, communicate well and be selfless. Remember that at the end of the wedding day, the goal of it all was the be married to the love of your life and share that love with your family and friends.
What is the most honest thing you can say about love?
Tim says “ you’ll never regret falling in love”. It’s the greatest thing you could do in life. You’ll have that person to share every experience and moment with. Remember, Love is an action. You choose to love each other every day and choose to be someone who you’d want to love as well. Be the best for each other and you’ll never regret the yeas.
