Nick and Lauren were married at the fabulous Elm Bank Reservation in Wellesley, MA. Per usual with my time working for Molly, I started with the guys at Nick’s parents house in Newton before we headed over to the venue. Nick’s group of friends were hilarious and really helped (or maybe hurt!) relieve the stress levels before the ceremony.
Getting really relaxed…
The guys helped each other with their ties. A serious discussion was had as to which type of knot they were going with. Its so tough being a guy!

We then headed over to Elm Bank Reservation for the Wedding Ceremony. A shot of the guys hanging out before the ceremony.
The guys made it their mission to get an “album cover” photo
They had a lot of clever ideas!
