It was the first weekend of the season that really felt like summer, and we were so happy to celebrate the gorgeous weather with Elizabeth and Ben at their Harvard Club of Boston Wedding in Back Bay!

Elizabeth and her wedding party started the day getting ready in the beautiful rooms above the Harvard Club. The bride wore a classic white lace wedding gown, a great choice for the late-spring heat, and her bridesmaids matched perfectly in strapless champagne-colored gowns. The bouquets from Stapleton Floral added a light splash of pink, purple, and green to the ladies’ dresses.

The couple’s first look and photo shoot with their bridal party took place in the Harvard Club’s Massachusetts Room — the sweeping red curtains and black and white checkered floor were perfect for a classic and elegant backdrop. After the ceremony at the nearby Church of the Advent behind Boston’s historic Beacon Hill, we took advantage of the flawless spring weather to get some shots with the newly-married couple in the Boston Public Garden!

Guests returned to the Harvard Club of Boston for the evening reception, which took place downstairs in the Club’s Harvard Hall. The dark wood-paneled walls and towering ceilings provide a great neutral color palette to accentuate with decor. The red chairs, colorful red centerpieces, and red-trimmed flatware added the perfect touch of color to this beautiful space. The Hall’s central fireplace and ornate chandeliers, along with traditional candelabras on the surrounding walls, made this wedding reception warm, intimate, and classically elegant.

Thank you to Elizabeth + Ben, and the whole team at the Harvard Club of Boston for such a wonderful wedding day!
