Deb and Blake’s wedding portrait in front of the sun is one of my favorites from their Boston science museum wedding!
On a crisp October evening in 2016, a girl named Deb challenged a boy named Blake to a game of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon on a dating website. An embarrassing number of messages later, Deb had won and an impressed Blake asked her on a date. Over the next two years, Deb and Blake have traveled to 25 states and 1 foreign country. Together, they have seen a LOT of movies, tried all of the food, and attended 9 weddings. They have also merged their homes into one in Plymouth, MA and have been doting fur parents to Malum, Lillian, and Wesley. Then one freezing winter night, Blake brought Deb to a beautiful Christmas tree in the Boston Common, got down on one knee, and asked her to marry him. Needless to say Deb screamed an enthusiastic “OF COURSE I WILL” and here we are.

Deb, full of energy and kindness, brings out the smiles in Blake.
The two were surrounded by friends and family that had so much love for them. They’ve personalized their Boston Science Museum wedding to reflect their culture – everything from a beautiful Chuppah canopy (made by Blake’s mother, Maura) to an adorable kiss during their hora! Deb and Blake made the centerpieces, program board, all signs, collages. Deb’s shoes during the ceremony were her mother’s rehearsal dinner shoes from her own wedding.
I love hearing about relationships and how they evolve. Deb said that Blake surprised her on Google Hangouts, and appeared on the group chat to tell her that he was was coming to Texas with them on their annual trip as a birthday present! Blake said that he knew that Deb would be the one, when he saw her playing with all of their friends’ kiddos in Texas on their annual trip.
The two are an amazing team:
“We have each other’s backs and will always do anything for one another. There is no judgment with us and we love each other without question. Also, we both have hair that frizzes, we both look 10 years younger than our actual ages, and we both love our pets more than humanly possible.”
Side note: I loved the Maid of Honor speech. She quoted from Deb’s text messages and Deb said, “30, but looks 12”. Family and friends laughed so much at this!
Congratulations, Deb and Blake on your amazing Boston science museum wedding!
