Catherine & Mark were married just outside Boston near Catherine’s childhood home. I’ve always admired individuals that maintain lasting friendships into adulthood with those that they were close to in childhood. In my opinon, it speaks directly to the strength of one’s character & it’s something I’ve always aspired to. This was definitely an evident characteristic in both Catherine & Mark. It was awesome to see so many people attend the wedding that had been close to them their entire lives.
The wedding also happened to be just down the road from Walden Pond, and right around the corner from Ralph Waldo Emerson’s house. This was our first extended trip to New England, and we Left Coaster’s were impressed by the nearness of so much of our nation’s early history. This area of Massachusetts has done a fantastic job of preserving old farmland as public space and it is surrounded by woods & meadowland, and we loved taking advantage of the pastoral setting for photos. We were a little early for all the fall color, so we hope we can get back to see it (and photograph it) again someday. Catherine and Mark, thank you for a great introduction to New England!
