We could not have asked for a more beautiful spring day for this gorgeous Armenian Wedding at the Fairmont Copley Plaza! Tatevik + Gary’s wedding day was a perfect mix of classic, traditional, and beautifully elegant — and it was so much fun to photograph.
We stared the day with the bride and her bridesmaids, getting ready at Tatevik’s aunt’s house in Belmont. The bride wore a gorgeous form-fitting Vera Wang gown, while her bridesmaids looked on in deep purple strapless dresses and adorable lilac purple dresses for the two junior bridesmaids. All of the day’s flowers were a classic white, from the lush white bride’s bouquet to the beautiful white orchid arrangements that stood on either side of the church’s altar. Tatevik + Gary said their “I do”s in a classic Armenian wedding ceremony at the Holy Trinity Armenian Church in Cambridge. It’s always wonderful for us to be a part of a unique wedding ceremony like this, so many beautiful traditions and special moments that we don’t normally get to see!
Once the bride and groom became husband and wife, we took the entire bridal party back to Boston to get some formal photos in the Boston Public Garden. It was a beautiful and sunny spring day, perfect for outdoor wedding photos. We stayed a little bit longer with Tatevik + Gary alone, and then took them back to Copley Square for some pictures in front of the Fairmont Copley Plaza, Boston Public Library, and historic Trinity Church.
Their evening wedding reception took place in the Fairmont Copley Plaza grand ballroom, which was enhanced with sparkling white linens and classic white orchid centerpieces. The whole room was washed with colorful purple uplighting, which was picked up beautifully by all of the white decor. It wasn’t long before everyone was on the dance floor, dancing to the traditional music played by an Armenian band brought all the way in from California! As Tatevik + Gary danced the night away, friends and relatives threw money over their heads — a tradition at Armenian weddings to bestow good fortune and prosperity on the bride and groom.
We were so happy to share this wonderful day with Tatevik, Gary, and their families. This traditional Armenian wedding was so gorgeous, elegant, and full of fun and laughter, we were lucky to be a part of it! Special thanks to Alice Fay and the entire team at the Fairmont Copley Plaza, and congratulations to the bride and groom.
