Tarryn and Kyle are the type of couple that can turn rainstorms into sunshine - and that's exactly what they did on their big day! The day started off dreary for the two self-proclaimed "book nerds," but that didn't stop them from enjoying every moment of their library themed wedding at the Robbins Library and reception at the Whitmore Robbins House. We are proud to present Molly Burns Photography's photos and details of their perfect day below.
Tarryn and Kyle arrived early morning at the Whitmore Robbins House to prepare for their brunch nuptials with family and friends in tow to pitch in. While munching on donuts and sipping on coffee, Tarryn pulled a Kate Middleton by dolling herself up with the help of friend Allie create a spectacular updo. As she zipped into her floor-length classic a-line dress and grabbed her simple white and green bouquet from Festive Flowers, Kyle finished off his navy suit look with a matching white flower boutonniere. The couple met in the hallway for an emotional first look, before heading out into the rain to begin their ceremony at the Robbins Library.
The ceremony began promptly at 11am, as the rain turned to a drizzle, and guests were welcomed into the Arlington Public Library with breakfast pastries and coffee from Deja Blu Catering. The couple's friend Brandon strummed "Here Comes the Sun" on the guitar as Kyle and family entered the ceremony from a dramatic spiral staircase attached to the library lobby. Tarryn and her father cascaded down the staircase as the music changed to "Storybook Love," and the pair met Kyle at the end of the aisle. The ceremony was filled with laughs, tears, and applause as the couple said "I Do" and were introduced as husband and wife.
Guests made their way over to the Whitmore Robbins House for a cocktail hour under the tent. The couple joined guests after a quick photo session in the library, for champagne toasts from the couple's family and friends.
Brunch was served in the Robbins House which was decorated with DIY personal touches (and many book references!) by Tarryn and Kyle - our favorite decoration was the table centerpieces which incorporated handmade book (paper) flowers, and greenery. Brunch led into dessert, with a dessert bar and cake created by Tarryn's mother. The couple cut their cake and danced the afternoon away in the Robbins living room.
Much to our delight, the sun broke through the clouds and pushed the rain away. The couple explored the grounds, and were able to fit one last photo session in- what a beautiful way to end a perfect day!
Congratulations Tarryn and Kyle! We are so honored to be part of your wedding memories. We wish you a happy life together with many trips to the library!
Susan and Billy had a gorgeous wedding that was shared with their closest family and friends on May 23, 2015. We are thrilled to share these photos from Ali Rosa Photography that show how beautiful their day was. The weather was absolutely perfect for their outdoor ceremony at the Arlington Town Hall. Susan glowed with her loose curls by Salon Astante and flawless makeup done by Hilary Warner as she walked down the aisle to her handsome groom.
After Susan and Bill exchanged their emotional vows and said “I Do”, they snuck away to have their pictures taken in the courtyard. The guests mingled at the cocktail hour as Ali Rosa captured memorable and romantic pictures of the couple before having the bridal party and family members join. The guests made their way to the beautifully decorated reception, as cocktail hour concluded. All of the flowers on the beautiful centerpieces were a perfect addition to this already beautiful day, thanks to Billy's mother, Jean!
DJ Max Baun of C-Zone Entertainment introduced the couple for the first time as husband and wife: Mr. and Mrs. Billy Lyons. Friends and family could feel the passion between the happy couple when they had their first dance to Stand By Me by Ben E. King. Once everyone made their way to their seats, a divine dinner was served by Cuisine Chez Vous.
Everyone enjoyed the fun DIY photo booth that the newlyweds added to their amazing reception!
When the reception wistfully came to an end, the exit of the bride and groom sparkled. Everyone was all smiles while they lit the outside pathway for the beautiful bride and groom, as they got into their getaway car to head to the afterparty. The night was angelic and intimate, and it was a night that they will remember for the rest of their lives.

Caroline and Sergio have a love story that stretches around the world from Mexico to Dubai and Boston. Their wedding reflected their international love in a way that was beautiful, exciting, and romantic with multi-cultural toasts, music, dancing and more. We are so excited to post Nicole Chan Photography's stunning photographs of Caroline and Sergio's big day below.
The day started out perfectly - a sunny, 80 degree June day. Caroline got primped and primed with hair and makeup done by Makeup 2 Die 4 in Fairmont Copley Plaza's bridal suite with her family and bridal party. The bridal party donned teal floor-length gowns with bright floral bouquets, reflecting Sergio's Mexican heritage, by Lindsay Norris Designs before heading over to Trinity Church in Copley Plaza for the first look.
The couple met in the garden courtyard at Trinity Church for their emotional first look. Sergio was ecstatic to see his bride in her white strapless gown with full, textured skirt (just wait until you see their dancing shots!) and Caroline was emotional seeing her dapper groom in a classic black tux. The wedding party snuck a peak at the first look and joined in for a photo session before the ceremony began.
The ceremony started at five, with guests from all over the world. Twilight cascaded through stained glass windows and into the historical church as Caroline and her father descended down the aisle where Sergio waited to meet them. The ceremony incorporated Caroline and Sergio's multicultural romance with prayers and vows in English and Spanish. Guests teared up as the pair exchanged emotional vows and were named husband and wife.
A mariachi band congratulated the couple outside the church as a crowd gathered in Copley Square to see the married couple. Bubbles surrounded the couple as they exited the church and lead the mariachi band around the square, a nod to Sergio's Mexican heritage, and to the Fairmont Copley Plaza where Ackers Brothers trio played smooth jazz to set the mood for cocktail hour.
The sun began to set as Caroline and Sergio were introduced to guests as a married couple. Guests were served dinner as Kim McHale serenaded them with her six-piece band and lighting set the mood from Boston Events. Guests were treated to emotional toasts from the couples' family members with translations in both English and Spanish.
The night picked up with DJ Marc Anthony from Murray Hill Talent playing hits from all decades. Guests were offered a dance break with late night tacos from Cha Cha Cha. Caroline and Sergio snuck off for one last photo session in Copley Square, and boy were the results romantic.
We had such an amazing time working with Caroline and Sergio, and can't wait to see where the next stop in their marriage is. Congratulations Caroline and Sergio!
