Charles and Sumita: soft-spoken, joyful and filled with endless love and respect for one another. This couple embodies the kind of "old love" that you rarely encounter anymore but that feels reminiscent of The Bronte Sisters or Jane Austen. Charles is kind and chivalrous and his eyes almost never leave Sumita. Sumita is sweet-natured and lovely. Their springtime wedding day was beautiful and poetic, as every flower at Mass Audubon Habitat was in fresh bloom and the sun peeked through the fluffy May clouds.
The Hummingbird Team stood hidden behind gently blowing branches in order to see the ceremony without intrusion. We couldn't help but be moved by the beauty of the surroundings and the beauty of the day, and for just a minute we kicked off our shoes and stood silently with toes wiggling in the grass watching as the sunlight played on the faces of these guests who had assembled to be a part of this joyous celebration.
As Sumita walked down the aisle, Charles walked up to meet her and they continued the journey together. Elly Jackson lead the ceremony with whimsy, poise and charm, as always. And guests enjoyed delicious cocktails from Premier Bartending and amazing Indian-inspired fare from Sara's Catering, arguably one of my favorite caterers of late, both in terms of inspiring professionalism and deeply impressive execution of complex flavors. Sara's Catering manages a perfect balance of high-end cuisine coupled with the comforting flavors reminiscent of home-cooked meals.
DJ Kevin Neary crafted a fantastic playlist for the day and Bittersweet Gardens provided luscious locally-sourced seasonal florals to compliment the beautiful garden surroundings. And of course, every beautiful moment was captured on film by the amazingly wonderful photographer, Tiffany Von.
As one of our earliest weddings of the season, it was an honor to begin the year on such an extremely high note. All of our love and best wishes to Charles and Sumita for a beautiful and happy life ahead.
