These Boston natives came all the way back from their home in California to celebrate their wedding in true Fall New England style. Julie and Matt currently live in Los Angeles, but gathered their friends and family from across the globe right here in Boston to make it official. The couple told us, “Fall is our favorite time in Boston and the Back Bay is our favorite neighborhood. Even though we live in California, we wanted to honor both of our homes during our favorite time of year.”

While the wedding took place at the Harvard Club of Boston, we started with the couple the night before at the ReelHouse in East Boston for their rehearsal dinner. This gave us an opportunity for some fall foliage shots out on the Boston waterfront before the big day. At the Harvard Club Boston the next day, Julie and Matt leaned heavily on the venue’s natural beauty. “We wanted do respect the location and not change it too much. The simple decor and lighting emphasize the beauty of Harvard Hall without competing. We were inspired by historic Boston in all of it’s colonial beauty. Traditional colors, classic florals and simple elegance are what we wanted to convey.”

Julie and Matt said their “I do”s in a combined Jewish and Christian wedding, with both a Rabbi and a Deacon performing the ceremony. The evening celebration brought in light linens, touches of elegant gold and lush green and white flowers. The Harvard Club Boston was the perfect setting for this fall celebration.

A special thank you to the couple, to Jennifer Sepulveda and her team at the Harvard Club Boston and to coordinator Lynne Enos!

Harvard Club Boston Wedding of Julia and Matt with Rehearsal Dinner at Boston’s ReelHouse photographed by Person + Killian Photography

When it comes to capturing the essence of Boston, there’s no place for a city wedding quite like the Downtown Harvard Club… with elegant curtain windows opening up to sweeping views of the city and a prime location in the heart of Boston on the 38th Floor of One Federal Street, Julie and Daniel found their ideal venue for such a special event. The bride and groom both got ready for their Downtown Harvard Club Wedding at the charming and historic Langham Hotel. The classic architectural elegance of the Langham was a beautiful backdrop for photos and spending time with friends and family as they prepared for the exciting day ahead.

Julie and Daniel then had their first look in the center of Boston’s financial district at Post Office Square, where we also photographed the wedding party and family. Following the photos, everyone walked over to the Downtown Harvard Club for the ceremony. The room was glowing with tones of purple and green, elegant white rose centerpieces by Madison Floral, and classic white  linens. Guests were captivated by the view of the city from the Downtown Harvard Club, overlooking Boston’s ever changing, surreal urban landscape.

While their guests enjoyed cocktail hour, we photographed the newlyweds at Christopher Columbus Park, right between the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway and the Boston Harbor. Julie and Daniel then joined everyone for their reception introduction. The Bride and Groom entered to “On Top of the World” by Imagine Dragons. Everyone came together to celebrate while the couple shared their first dance. As the reception continued, guest enjoyed a view of fireworks from the 38th floor that lit up the dark night sky. There was even a candy bar for guests to enjoy with chocolate kisses and lollipops because “love is sweet“.

Thank you Julie and Daniel for having us photograph your beautiful Downtown Harvard Club Wedding. Congratulations!!

Twice a year the Boston wedding and event industry gets together to socialize, network and attend a panel discussion. The Marketing to the High End Bride breakfast is a wonderful tradition in the Boston wedding industry, and we are always honored to be a part of it. The Spring event was held at the beautiful Harvard Club of Boston, and featured a panel discussion on “Great Wedding Problem Solvers” with some of Boston’s top wedding professionals. Arlene Cronk of Invitations & Company (who is also the creator and organizer of the High End Bride Breakfast), moderated the panel discussion.

The event was planned by Unique Weddings by Alexis with sleek and modern decor. The colors of black and white to beautifully complimented the Harvard Club of Boston’s hues of red and natural wood. For the “mixing and mingling” first half of the event, the Harvard Club’s second floor rooms were scattered with high cocktail tables featuring fun black and white patterned linens. Cocktail tables were topped with floral arrangements from Dana Markos Events.

A seated breakfast and the panel discussion took place downstairs in the Harvard Club’s Harvard Hall, which featured sleek and modern black and white tables from RESERVE Modern Event Rental. The alternating black and white tabletops were paired with a mix of beautiful lattice-backed chairs and sleek white lounge furniture for a fun and comfortable atmosphere. The tables were set with some of the newest china and glassware from Rentals Unlimited, including their chic new black and frosted white goblets, and featured bright green centerpieces in alternating black and white containers (perfect for the first day of Spring!). Following the formalities of the morning, guests were treated to a delicious gourmet doughnut wedding cake display as well as a make-your-own frozen yogurt station from Orange Leaf that included wedding cake frozen yogurt.

We always love being a part of this special industry event — special thanks to Arlene Cronk and the entire team at the Harvard Club of Boston for another fabulous breakfast!
