top news: Wendy Wellesley marries MIT grad student
Ok, I need to preface this entire entry with the observation that if the first thing a couple does is start tottering around as "grecian urns" without being prompted... you know you're in for a truly fun session!
Catherine and Theis wanted to do their photos at Wellesley College, a beautiful campus that has a lot of significance to them. I've been there before, but it wasn't in the autumn... and damn. That place rocks.
I actually have some history with Theis; I went to grad school with his older sister out in California several years ago. She arranged for the two of us to meet when I showed up in Boston friendless three years ago. I thought I was meeting Kyliah's sister, and this tall friendly redheaded Chemical Engineer brother showed up on my doorstep. As we waited for Catherine to finish getting ready before our photo session last week, it was a strange and interesting time warp to look at each other and say "now we're both getting married!"
Wendy (I mean, Catherine) is hilarious and beautiful and a woman who knows what she wants. She is a comic balance of imbalance (she managed to injure herself on the way to meet us) and poise and has big plans for life. Together, Wellesley pre-law and MIT engineer equal a total stereotype - a Boston-based power team.
I want to end with a photo that totally captivates me every time I look at it:
Watch out world!
