Last week Person + Killian Photography had the pleasure of photographing the Fenway Park vintage wedding of Emily & Jack. Their long awaited wedding vows in Boston, atop the Green Monster, was a celebration for them & their 3 beyond adorable boys (Jake, Joseph and Jack)! Fenway Park was the ultimate location for the groom who grew up in Boston and has been a life long Boston Red Sox fan (and Bruins). We asked Emily a little about the couple and received such a wonderful response that we had to share!:
John “Jack” and Emily met on Lansdowne street at a club called AXIS behind Fenway Park in the final moments of that nights’ techno music on April 20th, 1996. Jack charmed Emily by singing old Elvis songs A Cappella until dawn. The following Monday she found on her doorstep a meter tag attached to a Sunflower that read, “This flower rocks like you”. Three weeks later John moved in with Emily and five months later they drove across the country to Oregon for six months and then on to the Bay Area, California for two years. At the end of 1998 they bought a house in Idaho on a lark. In 2000, on their four year anniversary, Jack gave Emily a one karat engagement ring and they planned to marry. In July of that year, Emily had a stroke and found out she was pregnant with Jake Ryan. The wedding was delayed, and delayed, and delayed. Now, 15 years and three months, 3 sons, two dogs passed, one acre and a million precious moments later, Jack and Emily have returned to Boston after finally deciding to tie the knot at Fenway Park on July 20th, 2011.
We love that Jake, Joseph and Jack were all asked to sign the marriage certificate (Jack loved that he got to use the green marker)!
It was our lucky day – The Fenway staff okayed us to hit the field for a few great shots of the newlyweds!
It doesn’t get any cuter than the boys celebrating with mom and dad for a few shots overlooking home plate. Emily, who styled and designed the evening, thought of everything including these great argyle Sox hats and baseballs with customized messages.
Love the style as much as we do? Check out all of the great resources that made the look come together:
