Sunny skies, a serene blue waterfront, summer flowers, and a group of friends and family ready to celebrate — everything came together to give Melissa and Andrés their perfect Boston Marriott Long Wharf wedding. Bride and groom are both designers, so they thought carefully about each and every detail that would go into their big day. They embraced their “city wedding” and drew inspiration from modern romance, using a palette of fresh, modern colors such as ivory, grey, sage, blush, and gold throughout the day’s design.

Both bride and groom started the day next to the blue waters of Boston’s beautiful waterfront, with Melissa inside the Boston Marriott Long Wharf and Andrés at their nearby apartment. The groomsmen’s suits were accented with colors of sage green while the bridesmaids wore soft pink. Melissa’s bridal bouquet incorporated all of these colors and more, for a perfect soft and modern palette. The wedding ceremony took place in the Boston Marriott Long Wharf’s Palm Garden room, after which we took the newlyweds outside the hotel to Christopher Columbus Park right next door.

The sun was shining and it was a perfect day in the park, we took some formal photos with the couple and their wedding party in front of the lush greenery as well as a few photos of Melissa and Andrés out on the waterfront. We also took the couple across the street to the Rose Kennedy Greenway for some pictures in front of the carousel and underneath the flower-draped archway of Christopher Columbus Park.

Back at the Boston Marriott Long Wharf, the Harbor View ballroom was transformed for the evening reception. Gold frames and lanterns were used alongside floral bouquets of soft green, pink, and white for an elegant and modern touch. The ballrooms tall, curving glass windows gave guests a panoramic view of the beautiful boats and wharf below, and everyone was ready to celebrate the wedding of this wonderful new husband and wife.

Thank you to Melissa and Andrés for letting us be a part of your Boston Marriott Long Wharf wedding — it was a beautiful day perfect for a beautiful couple.
