About This Wedding


Liisa and Ethan's wedding was the epitome of a winter wonderland. Surrounded by glistening white snow, luxurious red roses, vintage inspired fur attire and a candlelit reception, this is how a winter wedding is done right! Catherine Hall Studios captured all of the elegance and grace of this stunning couple, and we couldn't image a more perfect way to celebrate your new life together.

The Couple


Ethan is originally from the quaint New England town of Marblehead and spent most of his childhood playing competitive hockey at Philips Acadamy, Andover, and also at Princeton University, where he received a degree in Political Economics.


Liisa spent most of her childhood living in England before moving to California to attend high school and college. Liisa graduated from University of California, Santa Barbara, and then attended the Tuck Business Bridge School at Dartmouth. After college, she moved to San Francisco to work at Google.


The couple met after Ethan spent a year sailing professionally and decided to move to San Francisco to pursue a career in finance.

Our Love Story

After many years of friendship and a mutual passion for skiing, sailing and training for road-bike races, they were engaged and moved to NYC, where Ethan now is a partner at a hedge fund and Liisa is working with brand marketers at Facebook.

What's Next

They have picked up new city hobbies with Ethan playing squash at the Union Club and Liisa pursuing her passion of painting and her recent launch of her art career.
