James and Marnie became husband and wife today!!! They had a stunning ceremony and reception at the gorgeous Gamble Mansion in Boston, MA. Marnie waited for her groom to arrive in the Boston Public Gardens and we managed to get some great portraits of them just before the sky opened up above us!! Special thanks to the wonderful bridesmaids, the bridge at the gardens for giving us shelter from the storm and of course Clorox wipes!!!

Katherinejane one word?
My first name is Katherine. My middle name is Jane.
Katherine was the name of my Irish grandmother. I remember that she always doodled while chatting on the phone, she taught me how to play tile, wanted me to be a nurse and she meet her husband of 52 years on a blind date. They had a long courtship due to the Great Depression and an even longer love affair. I also remember that my grandfather always called my grandmother dear.
Jane was the name of my Peruvian grandmother. Juanita in Spanish. I never meet her in person but I grew to love her through stories and precious photographs. I know that she was an amazing chef and was always in the kitchen despite having a hired cook to prepare the family dinners. I know she feed the poor in the neighborhood. I also know that when my uncles and grandfather forbade my mother from marrying my father (an American) that it was my grandmother who stood up for true love!! My grandmother fell in love with my father not just because of his blue eyes, their walks to the bakery together arm in arm or because he spoke fluent Spanish, but because he truly loved her daughter.
HAPPY EASTER AND PASSOVER!!!!
Tomorrow at STUDIO JANE I will be creating Stephanie’s mommy-to-be portrait. Check back tomorrow afternoon to see some of my top picks!!! After my session I 'm off to Cape Cod for the Easter holiday enjoying time with my mister and to be spoiled by my mother in laws AMAZING cooking!!!!
