It wasn’t too long ago we were meeting up at deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum for their engagement session where we discovered just how fun these two are. Kylie and Ross’s Prospect Hill Park wedding was something special.
There’s something amazing about brides getting prepared for their weddings in their own homes. After some beautiful hair and makeup by Cassandra, we headed back to Kylie and Ross’s home, where Kylie put on her dress. As Kylie shared moments with her mom and their two pups, Ross got ready in a room just minutes away from Prospect Hill Park.
Rain had been coming and going throughout the day, and the ceremony spot at the overlook sat right in this clear pocket of skies, surrounded by ominous rain clouds. We felt some misting when Kylie walked down the aisle, but that didn’t really matter to the small intimate group of family and friends. Ross thoroughly impressed with vows written in iambic pentameter (seriously). Just as the ceremony wrapped up, and we’d finished one of the few group portraits overlooking Boston, the skies opened up with a downpour. It’s definitely not every wedding we see guests holding cloths and their suit jackets over the bride and groom to keep them dry.
The reception took place in a little picnic area down the hill, already set up and decorated with the help of Christina, their wonderful coordinator. The cake was made by a friend, and the amazing meal came from Sofra.
Once the rain had died down, Kylie and Ross were happy to walk around in the woods, stand (and dance a little) on picnic tables, and get a little muddy on the trails, and there’s nothing to wrap up their woodsy Prospect Hill Park wedding like getting eaten alive by mosquitos just as the sun went down for those last few portraits.
