It’s a story familiar to anyone who works at City Hall. You’re waiting for the elevator, the doors open, and a beautiful, modest couple is standing there. They’re nervous. A bouquet in hand, a beautiful dress, a suit. Or maybe just suits.
They’re about to have one of the most important moments of their lives on the sixth floor of City Hall. They’re getting married.
We had an idea to document and share these moments with the help of a makeshift photobooth. Starting on the ninth anniversary of marriage equality, we set up a backdrop, some lights, and a camera. And everyone — the couples, the families, the folks in the City Clerk’s office — was excited with the results.
We’re calling it Married in Boston. We hope you enjoy it. (You can submit your own images here, too.)
P.S. We also hope you enjoy the trailer we made for the project:
