Kicked off the 2011 wedding season with Jeni and Tyler’s wedding February 26. The couple had a Catholic ceremony at St. Michael Parish in North Andover, Massachusetts. I captured a photograph of Tyler and Reverend Hogan minutes before the ceremony and I’m amazed how relaxed Tyler looked. In years of weddings, most grooms are nervous and serious and he was surprisingly calm. Seems to run the family as his brothers were his best men and their toasts at the reception didn’t require any notes. The reception was held at Tewksbury Country Club, which is a great spot for a winter wedding. They have a nice stone bridge very close to the building so that outdoor photos can be taken and then bridesmaids can hustle back inside where it is warm. There’s a bridal suite, a nice staircase, piano, a balcony over the ballroom and finally a huge fireplace that can be used for portraits. In deference to Jeni’s Jewish roots, guests conducted a Horah circle dance, hoisting the couple in chairs to the traditional Jewish folk song, Hava Nagila.
