Every year it comes back, and every year we’re just as excited as we were last time. That’s right — summer has finally returned to Boston! At this gorgeous Boston summer wedding, we celebrated with Maria and Ryan. For the bride and groom, the day was all about family and friends and celebrating their relationship in the best of company. When we asked Maria and Ryan to describe how they envisioned their summer wedding day they used words like “chic”, “elegant”, and “classic”. But above all they used the word emotional — and they were right on the money!

Maria (an oncology nurse at Dana-Farber) and Ryan (an ice hockey forward playing in the American Hockey League) surrounded themselves with a large wedding party for the day’s celebration. Eight bridesmaids, eight groomsmen, and eight little nieces and nephews started the day with the bride and groom getting ready at the Fairmont Copley Plaza.

The couple became husband and wife in a full Catholic Mass ceremony at the beautiful St. Cecilia Church. We took full advantage of the sunny summer afternoon after the ceremony for some formal photos with the newlyweds and their wedding party throughout Copley Square, before heading across to the Fairmont Copley Plaza for the evening’s reception. The Fairmont Copley Plaza Ballroom was elegantly transformed with classic white linens and tall white floral centerpieces, touches of gold detail, and stunning purple lighting. Family and friends could not wait to eat, drink, toast, dance, and celebrate with this wonderful couple — and we were honored to be there right alongside them!

Special thanks to Alice and her team at the Fairmont Copley Plaza, Paula and the Marrero Events team, and to Maria and Ryan for including us in your truly special summer Boston wedding day!

When we asked Ashley and Chris to describe the vision for their wedding day, it was clear they were working with their venue in mind. “Classic and subtle”, the bride said, “all the design features are to compliment the Copley’s elegance”. She was of course referring to the Fairmont Copley Plaza Boston, where she and Chris celebrated their beautiful and elegant summer wedding.

Ashley and Chris chose a soft color palette of pink and white, which perfectly translated to each element of the day’s events. Ashley and her bridesmaids started the day in the Catie Copley Suite (named for the Fairmont Copley’s original K-9 ambassador), the bridesmaids wore soft pink dresses and all of the ladies carried pink and white rose bouquets. Once everyone was ready, we headed to Saint Cecilia Parish just a few blocks away. Ashley and Chris decided not to have a first look before the ceremony, saving that special moment for when Ashley made her way down the aisle. Following the ceremony, we stayed at Saint Cecilia’s for some formal photos with the bride and groom before heading back to Copley Square.

We were joined by the rest of the wedding party for some fun photos around Copley Square — on the lawn, in front of the Boston Public Library, and in front of the Fairmont Copley Plaza Boston. Ashley and Chris even got a visit from Carly Copley — Catie’s successor as the Fairmont K-9 ambassador. Cocktail hour was held in the Fairmont Copley Plaza’s Venetian Room, then it was into the beautiful Oval Room for dinner and dancing. The Fairmont’s elegant white and gold color scheme was perfectly complimented by the pink and white details of the wedding day — including the soft summer floral arrangements, classic white linens, and white and gold details throughout.

We could not have asked for a sweeter couple than Ashley and Chris. We had so much fun with them and all of their friends and family, and loved being a part of this beautiful Fairmont Copley Plaza Boston wedding celebration.

Spring has (finally) sprung, and with it comes one of our favorite times of the year — spring wedding season! This classic Italian/ Armenian wedding at the Fairmont Copley Plaza was a beautifully elegant celebration, complete with Armenian traditions as well as modern twists.

Bride Tiana and her bridal party got ready for the wedding day at her parent’s house, while Peter and his groomsmen spent the morning at the bride and groom’s own house getting ready. The ladies wore shimmering champagne colored bridesmaid dresses to match with the soft palette of the day’s events, while Tiana’s dress featured a sweetheart neckline, sheer sleeves, and a beautiful long train. Tiana was joined by her father in a classic white Rolls Royce as they made their way to the church for the ceremony.

Tiana and Peter were married in a traditional Armenian wedding ceremony in Tiana’s childhood church. Once they were husband and wife, their wedding guests lined the outside steps of the church and blew bubbles as the bride and groom exited and headed to the Fairmont Copley Plaza to begin the evening’s celebration. It was a gorgeous spring afternoon, and we took advantage of the sunshine with the newlyweds and their wedding party outside the Fairmont Copley Plaza in Copley Square for some formal photos.

All of the evening’s events were at the Fairmont Copley Plaza, whose elegant white, gold, and champagne color palette matched perfectly with Tiana and Peter’s decor. The ballroom featured subtle champagne linens, gold chiavari chairs, gold votive candles, and towering white floral arrangements in thin crystal vases. Wedding guests packed the dance floor all night and enjoyed a mix of classic modern music and traditional Armenian wedding dances.

We were thrilled to be a part of this gorgeous wedding day, special thank you to Tiana and Peter and to Alicia Lapriore and her team at the Fairmont Copley Plaza for a wonderful celebration!

The holidays may be over, but we can still look back fondly on all of the winter celebrations that Boston had to offer this season. In December, we were invited to both photograph and attend the Fairmont Copley Winter Bacchanal — a traditional party full of drinks, food, and friends. The hotel’s 105 year old lobby was transformed into an opulent and elegant winter dining room, with long tables for guests running down the whole length of the room. White, gold, and crystal table settings were accented with pops of red rose arrangements and stunning solid red candelabras.

Guests were serenaded by American Idol season 13 finalist Sam Woolf, while enjoying a spectacular menu from Executive Chef Laurent Poulain. New friends, Industry friends and colleagues from across the city joined us at this wonderful winter bacchanal celebration, we absolutely love any opportunity to celebrate the winter season here in Boston!

Special thanks to the Fairmont Copley Boston for inviting us to photograph this event, to Marc Hall Design for the gorgeous florals and decor, and Peak Events Services for providing the rentals.

Suzy and Pat wanted the look and feel of their wedding to be classic, timeless and elegant with a touch of fairy tale and the Fairmont Copley Plaza was the perfect location. After the getting ready and first look at the Fairmont, we headed to the Commonwealth Avenue Mall for photos as well as the Boston College campus before the ceremony at St. Ignatius. Cocktail hour took place back at the hotel in the Venetian Room and the reception took place in the Oval Room with music by Groove Authority keeping the celebration going and guests on their feet.

Suzy and Pat chose mint green, pale pinks and gold for the colors of the day with the bridesmaids in floor length mint green dresses by Amsale from Allegria Bridal of Belmont. The flowers were a mix of white hydrangeas with shades of pink peonies and roses. The gold throughout the venue was accented with pops in everything from the menus to the Suzy and her bridesmaid’s shoes.

From the bride: “Pat and I met at Boston College, so we always knew we wanted to get married at St. Ignatius Church on the BC campus. The Fairmont Copley Plaza was always where I wanted to have my wedding reception. As a child, my dad would take me every year into Boston for First Night each New Year’s Day to see the ice sculptures. I would always love seeing the gold lion statues outside of the Copley. When I was six, there had been a New Year’s Eve wedding the night before and they were having brunch the next morning in the Oval Room. I peaked my head into the room and told my dad I was going to have my wedding at the Copley when I grew up.”

A big congratulations to the newlyweds Suzy + Pat and thank  you to the amazing team at the Fairmont Copley Plaza for always being so wonderful to work with!

There is nothing we love more then Fairmont Copley Plaza events! Over the winter we had the pleasure of photographing the hotel’s beautiful holiday bacchanal.

The Fairmont toasted the holiday season with a lavish five-course dinner featuring a special menu from Executive Chef Laurent Poulain. The hotel’s dramatic lobby was transformed into a sophisticated winter wonderland while guests dined at two beautiful tables running the length of the space. Over fifty guests gathered under the beautiful floral creations by Marc Hall Design, for an unforgettable and one-of-a-kind dining experience. They sat among crystal chandeliers, stunning marble columns, and sparkling holiday décor. Chef presented a sumptuous, four-course menu with flavors inspired by the season and perfectly-paired wines with each course.

We are so thrilled to be back at the Fairmont Copley Plaza next week to photograph the Spring Bacchanal. As winter winds down, The Fairmont Copley Plaza will celebrate the warmer weather and longer days of Spring. This time they will transform the lobby into a sophisticated garden party! To find out more information on where to purchase tickets, click here.
