Joe and Krista live for the BEST food, unique drinks, revelry and general badass-ery in all things they do. As a beer afficianado, Joe placed the heaviest emphasis on having an exceptional bar (Misty and Ben from Drink), and Krista, one of the best chefs I’ve ever encountered, wanted to bring in an authentic butcher (Akimenko Meats) to create delicious charcuterie, along with Forklift Catering, who created unique dishes for hungry guests.
The venue was the perfect, intimate location for all of these close friends to celebrate the Grotto-Daly wedding. A reading by the bride’s sister brought happy tears and laughter (A Lovely Love Story) and the wedding was officiated by the groom’s father. The wedding planner (Mandy Connor, Hummingbird Bridal and Events,) by this stage, was nearly incapacitated with happy tears.
After the ceremony, guests dined on the lawn in the open air (no tent needed!) at The Mass Audubon Habitat in Belmont, MA, surrounded by swaying trees and gorgeous gardens. And we were so lucky to have hired one of the best photographers EVER – the talented Kristin Korpos (and her wife/assistant Maarit.) Without Kristin, we wouldn’t have all of these amazing photos to look back on.
