Jillian + Rob married in the heart of Boston at the Boston Marriott Long Wharf with both the city skyline and the harbor as their backdrop. It was an especially emotional and touching day, as both Rob + Jillian serve our country, and had traveled back to the States to commit their lives to one another in front of their friends and family – many of whom they had not seen in quite some time due to their serving overseas.
Jillian looked amazing, and glowed all day long.
Jillian donned a military ribbon pin to proudly show her support. These pins were also given as favors to each of their guests at their reception.
The two actually married last New Year’s Eve, but this was their big celebration which included all of their loved ones.
Looking sharp in your dress blues, Rob!
Their first look was so sweet – even I teared up!
Being around these two made for such an enjoyable day – they were all smiles and laughs and it was contagious!
As their ceremony began, the lovely sounds of a harp filled the room.
With the ceremony complete, it was time for the party!
Not one detail was left out to create an eye-catching and very welcoming atmosphere in the ballroom.
In lieu of a traditional wedding favor, these two donated to a wonderful cause very dear to their hearts – the Wounded Warrior Project
, whose mission is “to honor and empower wounded warriors” – on behalf of their guests. It is yet another way these two have given back and shown their support.
They took a few moments to honor and thank those who had been lost while serving in the military with various ceremonial toasts.
Below is an especially meaningful portrait, as it includes all of the members of our military – both past and present – who were in attendance. I was very moved by Jillian + Rob’s heartfelt thanks and gratitude shown to the men and women who serve or have served this country throughout their wedding day.
Finally, we snuck out to get a few portraits around the hotel. These are two of my favorites.
Jillian + Rob – from the bottom of my heart I would like to thank you for entrusting me with capturing your day to the fullest, and words can’t describe how appreciative I am to you both. Thank you for all you have done and continue to do for this great country, and know you have an immense amount of love and support behind you each and every day.
