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.
Some of the family journeyed out on the Charles for quick sail before digging into some BBQ.
Eric and Birgit enjoy a dance on the dock.
The next day I met the girls at The Dry Bar just outside Harvard Square.
Eric's niece was so adorable.
Eric's daughters, Abigail and Claire, wanted a photo from the back so they could see the final results...not bad.
Step one complete!
Back home the girls help dad get ready for the day. So many cute moments here.
Meanwhile the ladies lent a hand to Birgit with makeup. This was quite amusing to watch.
Just before the ceremony at the MIT Chapel, Birgit and Eric see each other for the first time.
Not too shabby.
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.
A great cake for surfers.
The view from the MIT Faculty Club is pretty cool.
During dinner I snuck outside to grab shot that would hopefully give a little perspective to the venue.
Many headed out to the deck to witness the full moon.
Love this family portrait.
Not sure if he had the milk and cookies before passing out for the night.
Thank you so much to Birgit and Eric for inviting me to help document their special weekend.
