I think we can make it official — the Fall wedding season has arrived in Boston! For those that know the area, you know that there is nothing quite like New England in the Fall. Emily and Erik chose the Hampshire House for their Boston Fall wedding day, with its cozy interior and dark wood detailing it was the perfect fit for this late September celebration.

We never had to travel far for any of the day’s events — with the Boston Public Garden right outside we had no shortage of gorgeous locations and started the day with getting ready at Taj Boston. Emily and Erik chose a fall color palette of dark cranberry red, contrasted against soft pink and white. The colors appeared in all of the floral bouquets, table settings, and in the gorgeous color of the bridesmaid’s dresses. We took advantage of the Public Garden for all of our outdoor formal photos, we love how different areas of the garden show off different trees in bloom — from full Summer green to the changing Fall foliage. We even had a swan serendipitously swim by on the pond behind Emily and Erik while we were taking formal photos, sometimes you can’t plan these things!

All of the wedding events took place at the Hampshire House, from the intimate wedding ceremony through the evening celebration. The ornate wooden architecture and deep natural colors were the perfect compliment to the details of Emily and Erik’s Fall wedding. A close-knit party of about 70 guests watched the couple become husband and wife, enjoyed dinner, toasts, and an evening of laughter and dancing in celebration of Emily and Erik.

Special thanks to this wonderful couple for being so much fun to spend a day with, and to Michele, Karim and their team at the Hampshire House Boston for always being a pleasure to work with!

Maggie and Mike dreamed of a classic winter wedding in Boston, and their beautiful and elegant wedding at the Taj Boston and Hampshire House was exactly what they had hoped for! This winter wedding was before Boston saw its first big snowfall, but the couple still took advantage of all the winter details around the city. The couple began the day at the Taj Boston — Mike with his groomsmen, and Maggie with her bridesmaids (as well as the couple’s adorable dog Bonnie). Maggie accented her wedding gown with a gorgeous fur wrap, perfect for outdoor photos in the winter.

The couple met in the Boston Public Garden, directly across the street from the Taj Boston, for their first look and formal photos in the park. Then it was off to St. Cecilia’s Parish just a few blocks away for the wedding ceremony. Maggie and Mike became husband and wife in a full Catholic mass ceremony, surrounded by friends, family, and loved ones. Evening had fallen in the city after the ceremony was finished, and we took the newlyweds out to Commonwealth Avenue on our way back to the reception for a few more photos. Around this time of year Comm Ave is lined with sparkling holiday lights, which made the perfect backdrop for some classic winter wedding photos.

The reception was held at the Hampshire House in Beacon Hill, with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres starting on the Hampshire House’s third floor. We took advantage of the House’s stunning spiral staircase for some photos with the newlywed’s, then the party moved downstairs to the second floor for dinner. The couple chose classic white with a few pops of blue for their winter wedding decor — the neutral palette matched perfectly with the Hampshire House’s already rich and historical design. Silver vases held gorgeous white floral arrangements, and soft candlelight glowed throughout the room. Following dinner, guests moved up to the third floor for dessert and then back down to the second floor for dancing. Maggie, Mike, and all of their guests danced the night away at this beautiful winter wedding celebration — exactly how they had imagined it.

Thank you to Maggie and Mike for including us in your wonderful wedding, and to the Hampshire House for sending this fantastic couple our way!
