The Museum of Science Boston is one of my all-time favorite quirky wedding venue spaces in Cambridge! I used to have a membership to this museum as a child and so, the space holds many memories for me. Even the walk from the parking lot to the building is exciting, because I remember there used to be a PC lab (back in the day when not every household could afford a computer), and my mother would let me play for a few minutes before we entered the main exhibits. I’ve photographed weddings at the Museum of Science Boston dozens of times, and each one is a little different.
Sometimes, wedding ceremonies and receptions are inside in the Blue Wing. Guests can roam around all three floors! At my last wedding there, Erika and Mike, there was a special exhibit called “The Photography of Modernist Cuisine”. (I totally geeked out.) During cocktail hour, Erika and Mike invited all of their guests to watch the electricity show! It was spectacular.
I’ve also photographed weddings on the Museum’s topmost floor, the Skyline Room. The awesome aspect of this space is that it offers panoramic views of the Charles River, Back Bay, Boston AND Cambridge. Floor to ceiling windows on two adjacent walls makes this epic view possible. If you do have a wedding here, might I suggest having it close to sunset?
Though the Museum of Science is known for its education and nerdiness, couples can have their wedding here without ever needing to step foot into the museum. Lastly, the Washburn Pavilion is a semi-permanent tent right on the Charles River. Angela and Andrew had their wedding ceremony outdoors in covered patio, their portraits in the greenery right next their ceremony space with a waterfront backdrop and their reception in the large tent.

During their second year of undergrad at MIT, Cathy and Suzanne notice the freshman moving in and Cathy tells her friend, “There are some really tall freshman.” I don’t know if I believe in first sight. It feels too cheesy for me. I, however, do believe in the power of personality and how it’s conveyed… Read More
I’ve never online dated, but I bet it would be fun (slash interesting, slash crazy, slash overwhelming). My friends all have hilarious stories (or maybe they’re only hilarious because it’s not me). Either way, I often get e-mails from couples and I really get to know them over a series of e-mails, then phone… Read More
When I see another Husky, I either say, “Oh! It’s a BIG Sledder!”. If it’s a Klee Kai, I’ll say, “Oh, it’s a LITTLE Sledder!”. Breeds no longer have meaning because the dog’s name has taken over. I don’t know many friends that have adorable corgis with their little strides and short legs. When I met… Read More
