Rockstar Couple: Kat & Rick's Nautical Cruise Ship Wedding (Boston, MA)

We've been to more weddings with Kat and Rick than we have with anyone in our own families! We saw them at Nicole and Keith's New Year's wedding and again at Melissa & Matt's wedding and that was just this year!

So when it was finally their turn, we were excited to put the spotlight on them! They got married on The Odyssey in Boston, MA on a blustery(!) May afternoon that sure didn't feel like Spring, but that's par for the course in New England, isn't it?

Oh and did I mention Rick managed to break his hand mere days before the wedding? He never did tell us what happened but I can only imagine he sustained his injuries while wrestling a crocodile or thwarting bank robbers and saving an orphanage full of toddlers.

Is this a wedding party for the magazines, or what?

The ceremony... Rick must have said "wow" five times before Kat reached him.

I love a wedding party with a little bit'o'swagger.

We walked around for the formals, Boston is full of great spots...I could have shot them all day but eventually someone from the ship tracked us down and hauled us back!

We got back to the ship and into the waiting room where the wedding party was rummaging through bags for props like life jackets and flippy floppies and I thought "please be announced to 'I'm on a Boat'...please." BTW that link is totally not safe for work or anyone who didn't grow up in a foul-mouthed Irish family like myself.

Here's Kat's brother makin' it rain.

Their reception was wild, right up there with Melissa and Matt's! And it featured one of my all-time favorite wedding grandparents! Nicole (of Nicole & Keith's New Year's Eve wedding) has the best grandmother ever.

She's so awesome Keith can't contain his amazement.

Nicole and Keith AND Michelle and Matt were there, I think three Rockstar Couples is a record for one wedding!

Kat and Rick had no intentions of stopping the party by dinnertime when their time on The Odyssey was up, so they rented out part of The Times bar across the street for a karaoke afterparty! Needless to say, it was a great time! James and I did Billy Idol's White Wedding. ;)

I wrote down the karaoke DJ's name but seem to have lost it in the depths of my camera bag...Kat? Anyone?

We had such a good time with Kat, Rick and their great family and friends. Congratulations guys!! See you at a wedding soon? haha
