Alyssa + Dan first met at Boston University where they were both a part of the track team. Seven years later, their summer wedding at the State Room Boston showcased their love, their alma mater, and the city that they call home!

The bride and groom started the day getting ready at the Langham Hotel in Downtown Boston. Daniel surprised Alyssa with a fun gift — a custom pair of white Nike running shoes with purple accents to match their wedding colors. The shoes even had their wedding date and wedding hashtag printed on the back! They decided not to see each other before the wedding, so we went straight to Boston University’s beautiful Marsh Chapel to start the ceremony. Because both Alyssa + Daniel are Boston University alum, this historic BU wedding chapel was the perfect location for their afternoon wedding ceremony. Following the ceremony, we stayed around the chapel to capture formals with the couple’s family and wedding party and took advantage of the beautiful Boston University campus before heading to the State Room Boston to start the celebration. We made a quick stop en route to the State Room at Boston’s Post Office Square for some photos with Alyssa + Dan before joining the rest of the guests at the cocktail hour.

The evening reception took place in the State Room Boston’s Harborside Ballroom, 33 stories high above Boston’s bustling downtown. The panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows made for a stunning view of the Boston harbor and city below, and the couple chose colors of white and ivory with fun lavender and dark purple accents for their decor. They described their wedding day inspiration as “modern city” — clean and chic. Following a first dance, toasts, and a traditional cake cutting, guests packed the dance floor to celebrate with this wonderful couple!

A very special thank you to the entire State Room Boston team for another flawless event. Congratulations Alyssa + Dan on your beautiful Boston wedding day!
