A final goodbye to Senator Edward M. Kennedy
Unfortunately I did not have the opportunity to attend any of the services for Senator Kennedy this week as I would have liked. Because I do not work for a media outlet such as the Boston Globe, or AP, it's hard to easily gain access to guarded events. After the morning funeral in Boston wrapped up and the family headed to Hanscom Air Force Base, I gathered at a Mass Pike overpass in Newton with a number of other well wishers. It wasn't long before the motorcade emerged from under the Crowne Plaza.
I called my Mother several times to meet me on the bridge and wait for the procession, but she was not answering her phone. I later learned that she and her friend were positioned on the following overpass, pictured below.
I know these photos aren't amazing but I'm still grateful for being able to catch a glimpse of history.

Sarah & Edoardo - Married in Brewster, Ma
While studying abroad for over six years, Sarah met a guy named Edoardo at the bookstore she worked at. They were together for the rest of her time in Florence until the two were forced to part ways when Sarah decided to move home this summer. Lost without her, "Edo" decided to surprise Sarah on her doorstep in Cambridge. The couple quickly got engaged and wasted no time planning a wedding. That's when I got a call about a short notice ceremony on Cape Cod, which sounded perfect to me!
This is Sarah a couple of hours before her wedding.
Edo and his friend from Italy.
The couple rented a cottage in Bewster with quite a bit of character. There were oddly shaped staircases everywhere!
I love this portrait.
Sarah and her mom, Judy.
The couple planned their wedding in less than two weeks.

Just fourteen people attended the seaside ceremony officiated by the bride's childhood babysitter. How fun is that!
They were all smiles, all day.
It was such a great spot for a wedding!
A great time for a stroll!
The couple and their guests poured sand into a vase in honor of those who couldn't be with them.

At the end of the ceremony Sarah & Edo released the sand into the tall grass.
I love beach formals!

Most of the wedding party!
The dinner was held at a quaint restaurant in Brewster, called Chillingsworth.

Sarah and her mom were so kind to invite me to sit for dinner. Chillingsworth served one of the best meals I've ever had!
The "priest" after completing her duties.
The adirondack chairs cake!
This room was one of the darkest I've ever worked in. Doesn't everything look so beautiful under candle light?
I love this photo.
Congratulations to Sarah & Edo! Thank you for welcoming me into your family for a day!
