A gorgeous day and classic Back Bay location made for the perfect combination for Melissa + Peter’s Spring Taj Boston wedding. The bride and groom wanted a classic and traditional wedding throughout all the aspects of their big day, from the soft flowers, to the beautiful Church ceremony (which held extra special significance to Melissa), to the evening reception in the elegant Taj Boston Grand Ballroom.
The wedding ceremony was held at the Collage of the Holy Cross, St. Joseph Chapel, which is were Melissa went to school. The inside of the church was stunning, with a high domed ceiling and lots of colorful stained glass for a warm, intimate feeling. This beautiful catholic ceremony was filled with amazing music and the service was one of the most important elements to the evening for Melissa + Peter.
Coming out of the church after the “I do”s, the Spring weather was absolutely perfect. We couldn’t help but take a few photographs of the happy newlyweds on the steps of the chapel, before heading back to Boston. While guests enjoyed cocktail hour we took Melissa, Peter, and their wedding party over to the Boston Public Garden for some beautiful formals photographs.
The Ballroom was transformed into the classically elegant wedding reception Melissa had been dreaming of, with textured linens and gorgeous floral arrangements. The space was filled with rich, warm color, so the soft ivory flowers, and touches of gold 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 candle votives, giving the room a warm romantic glow as soon as the sun started to set.
Thank you to the Taj Boston for being so lovely to work with and a big congratulations and thank you to Melissa + Peter for having us there to capture your beautiful Spring Taj Boston wedding celebration!
