When Deena and Joel got engaged they knew that they wanted a classically refined summer wedding. Overlooking the harbor, the Seaport Hotel located in the heart of Boston’s historic seaport, boasts no shortage of lovely spots (and photo locations!) to enjoy; it turned out to be the perfect waterside location they were looking for!
We begin the beautiful August day gathered in the bridal suite where the girls were clearly having a blast getting ready together. The atmosphere was fun and filled with excitement for the upcoming day. The sweet flowergirl, Bri, almost stole the show but Deena’s stunner of a dress, a lovely Watters gown, ensured all eyes were on this beauty. The bride completed the look with timeless pearls and a bouquet of fresh summer flowers of garden roses, ranunculus and dahlias. The gentleman spent some time prepping together too, gathering together with Joel while he suited up for the couple’s first look.
Taking advantage of the perfect day, Deena’s & Joel’s first look took place outside where they had a private moment before heading off to capture fun shots of the whole wedding party. The bridesmaids looked like a summer breeze in their dresses perfectly complimented by the groomsmen in crisp gray suits.
The ceremony took place in an elegant ballroom where rose petals adorned the aisle and a backdrop dripped in light. The look on Joel’s face as Deena walked down the aisle said it all. Officiating the ceremony was Joel’s grandfather adding personal touches and tender words of encouragement to Deena and Joel as they exchanged lifelong vows.
Following the ceremony, the newlyweds and wedding party joined in on the fun as guests sipped on the couple’s signature cocktails while enjoying hors d’oeuvres and good conversation. The reception space was draped with flowing fabric and detailed lighting that reflected the stunning floral centerpieces that were both lush and vibrant making for an intensely romantic feel. As the evening continued, the new Mr. and Mrs. spent time thanking their guests, dancing with loved ones and cutting a gorgeous five-tiered wedding cake. Once dinner progressed into dancing and the lighting dimmed, Beantown Band did what they are known to do – pack a dance floor and bring the house down! Wildly gifted and not afraid to join the party, we have so much fun capturing the candid joy the band brings to the guests.
We always love working with familiar faces, and as always, enjoyed working with the planner, Ivy Finn from Event’s By Ivy and entire team at the Seaport Hotel Boston. What a great time we had photographing this wedding!
