Birgit & Eric – MIT Chapel Wedding

MIT Faculty Club Wedding

Birgit and Eric had a spectacular weather for their weekend wedding festivities this August. Eric is a professor at MIT, and this weekend Cambridge MA was the home for all of their festivities including the ceremony at the MIT Chapel. It started with a casual BBQ at the MIT sailing pavilion. Birgit, originally from Germany, had a lot of relatives journey from her homeland to celebrate with her and Eric, and this was a great way to kick off the weekend.  mit_wedding_013 mit_wedding_002

Some of the family journeyed out on the Charles for quick sail before digging into some BBQ. mit_wedding_015 mit_wedding_018

The next day I met the girls at The Dry Bar just outside Harvard Square.

Eric's niece was so adorable. mit_wedding_099

Eric's daughters, Abigail and Claire, wanted a photo from the back so they could see the final results...not bad. mit_wedding_086

Step one complete! mit_wedding_114

Back home the girls help dad get ready for the day. So many cute moments here. mit_wedding_142 mit_wedding_152 mit_wedding_159

Meanwhile the ladies lent a hand to Birgit with makeup. This was quite amusing to watch.

Not too shabby. mit_wedding_208

If you have never been to the MIT Chapel, take a visit. It is quite a unique structure.

I grabbed a few shots on our walk to the MIT Faculty Club. mit_wedding_363 mit_wedding_369 mit_wedding_375

A great cake for surfers.

The view from the MIT Faculty Club is pretty cool. mit_wedding_444 mit_wedding_452 mit_wedding_463 mit_wedding_483 mit_wedding_499 mit_wedding_507 mit_wedding_508 mit_wedding_538

During dinner I snuck outside to grab shot that would hopefully give a little perspective to the venue. mit_wedding_446 mit_wedding_546 mit_wedding_549 mit_wedding_571 mit_wedding_609 mit_wedding_560

Many headed out to the deck to witness the full moon. mit_wedding_574 mit_wedding_581
