Angela & Mark’s Boston Public Garden + Ice Cream Truck Elopement


Angela and Mark had a super secret wedding at the Boston Public Garden and photographer Kristin Chalmers was their only witness. This elopement is proof that weddings are special and beautiful no matter what size your guest list is. It’s also pretty cool when a couple decides to celebrate their union by being their casual everyday selves.

The super adorbs ice cream truck portrait session happened completely by chance — the couple got hungry and it just so happened that Kristin was ready with her camera! Lesson? Always bring your photographer with you and make sure he/she has awesome moment-capturing skills. 🙂 I loved this shoot the moment I saw it on Kristin’s site and I am grateful that I can now share it with you today!

Kristin shares that her friend Angela e-mailed her kinda out of the blue one day. Here’s how their conversation went once they spoke on the phone:

Angela – Hey how’s it going?
Kristin – Great what’s going on?
Angela – I need to ask you favor, are you ready?
Kristin – Sure…what’s up?
Angela – I’m getting married. Actually, I’m eloping…like NEXT WEEK! Can you shoot it? And NOT TELL ANYONE AT ALL! I MEAN NO ONE, not my boss, no one!
Kristin – NO WAY! That is so cool. I would love to. Who’s gonna be there?
Angela – You, the justice of the peace, and Mark of course. That’s it!

… which of course totally blew her away. Here’s Kristin to tell you the rest:

We met at the hair salon, where her great friend Theresa showed up to help her get her flowers and surprise Angela with a wedding gift. The gift was ME! Theresa took care of my fee, which I thought was the sweetest thing ever. From the salon we drove down to the Public Garden where Mark and the Justice of Peace meet us. They picked their choice of ceremony on the spot and that was it! And I have to say it was the most intimate moment of any wedding I have ever been to. It almost made me wish I had eloped!

I love Angela’s short white dress! Kristin’s back to tell us more about the wedding:

After the ceremony which lasted all of 10 minutes we did a few formals and ran around for a bit.

But then…they got hungry.

Angela kept teasing Mark because he was dying for a hot dog. So we ran to the Frosty Truck on Arlington and Boylston (in the Back Bay) where they grabbed a dog and lemonade. These shots were not set up AT ALL! They are really eating. I didn’t say much, just kept snapping away. I couldn’t have posed this if I tried. I always say that photograph is part skill and luck. Luck that you have great chemistry with your subjects. Luck that the weather is good. Luck that you get those in-between shots when no one is looking. Maybe it’s not luck as much as it’s a happy accident.
