It was the first day of Fall, and Caroline + Drew could not have asked for a more perfect day for their Taj Boston Wedding. The bride and groom wanted a classic and traditional wedding throughout all the aspects of their big day, from the soft white flowers, to the beautiful Church ceremony (which held extra special significance to Caroline), to the evening reception in the elegant Taj Boston Grand Ballroom.
Caroline + Drew both love the color navy, so they decided to accent Caroline’s strapless white wedding dress and bouquets of white roses with deep navy blue dresses for the bridesmaids. The flower girls’ ruffled white dresses matched the bride’s gown perfectly, with a classic blue sash around each one. Drew and the rest of the wedding party travelled to the church in a white wedding trolley, while Caroline and her father followed behind in a white limousine.
The wedding ceremony was held at the Holy Name Parish in West Roxbury, which is the very same church that Caroline’s mother and father got married in years earlier. The inside of the church was stunning, with a high domed ceiling and lots of colorful stained glass for a warm, intimate feeling. Caroline + Drew chose simple white flower accents leading down the aisle, to enhance the natural beauty and color of the church itself.
Coming out of the church after the big “I do”s, the Fall afternoon weather was absolutely picture-perfect. We couldn’t help but snap a few photos of the happy newlyweds on the steps of the Parish, with beautiful puffy clouds filling the sunny blue sky behind them! Before heading back to the Taj Boston for the reception, we took Caroline, Drew, and their wedding party into the Boston Public Garden for some outdoor wedding formals in the sunshine.
The Taj Boston Grand Ballroom was transformed into the traditional and elegant wedding reception Caroline + Drew had been dreaming of, with textured champagne linens and gorgeous table-top floral arrangements from Winston Flowers. The Grand Ballroom is full of rich, warm color on its own, so the soft white flowers were the perfect choice to enhance the natural elegance of the space without overwhelming it. Both the high and low floral arrangements were paired with gold candle votives, giving the room a warm romantic glow as soon as the sun started to set. The bride and groom had a lot of fun with their wedding cakes, choosing a traditional navy and white tiered cake AND a special New York Yankees themed baseball cake for their traditional cake cutting!
This classic and traditional Taj Boston wedding was the perfect way to kick off the Fall season, and we were so happy to be there to share the day with Caroline + Drew.
