Opposites Attract – A Boston Jewish Wedding

Boston Jewish WeddingChristine lights up a room whenever she enters it and loves the classics, right down to her “getting ready” playlist of Tony Bennett and Frank Sinatra. Josh, more of the observer and quiet one, has a surprising love of hip hop and urban culture, and a certain relaxed vibe that worked as a counter to his bride’s spirited personality. They tied the knot in a traditional Jewish wedding on a sweltering August day in Boston. Photography by Kristin Chalmers Photography.
