Elana and Pete met while working for the Boston Red Sox. The couple worked together and were friends for many years before they started dating. Elana knew it couldn’t be better professionally than to see the team win the World Series at Fenway Park back in 2013 and left to pursue her teaching career. Although she misses working with the team, she couldn’t imagine life without Pete.
When Pete and Elana chose the Seaport Hotel Boston for their winter wedding, they were told throughout their planning that they were crazy to plan a wedding in February (the snowiest month of the year). The couple knew they made the right decision and made many preparations in case it was snowing or below freezing so their guests would be comfortable. So, it was a very welcomed surprise when the wedding day came and the temperature was in the 60’s! With the warm sun and spring like breeze, we were able to spend the afternoon outside for all of the photos with the family and wedding party.
From the bride: The Seaport was out perfect venue. We loved working with Melissa who made sure that we had everything we needed (including making sure to have the Fenway inspired late night snacks). We loved being able to exchange our own vows before doing the traditional vows. It was important to us to have a ceremony and a wedding that really felt like it reflected us. We wanted it to be both personal and fun and are so happy it turned out that way!
A big congratulations to Elana and Pete and thank you to Melissa and the team at the Seaport Hotel Boston for being so great to work with!
