We were thrilled to be back at the State Room Boston for the gorgeous wedding of Sarah and Mark — the couple mixed classic, modern colors of black and white with fun pops of purple for their spring wedding.
We joined Sarah at the nearby Millennium Hotel to get the day started. We photographed Sarah and her bridesmaids in the lobby of the Millennium while we waited for Mark for the first look. The beautiful red furniture and natural wooden walls of the lounge in the Millennium Hotel was the perfect setting for a romantic and intimate first look. After the first look, we spent some time taking formal portraits with their wedding party in the lobby of the hotel before starting the walk over to the State Room.
Faneuil Hall was the perfect backdrop for some classic Boston photos of Sarah and Mark. We took advantage of the beautiful spring day in Boston, and got some great photographs with the wedding party outside of Quincy Market before continuing our walk next door to the State Room.
The wedding ceremony took place high above downtown Boston in the State Room’s Great Room, overlooking the beautiful Boston waterfront and city below. The hallway leading into the Great Room was customized with a gallery of personal images of the couple and their family for guests to enjoy as they walked into the ceremony. Floral arrangements of purple and white orchids flanked either side of the altar, and guests sat in classic chiavari ballroom chairs to watch Sarah and Mark say their “I do”s.
While guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres on the upper level of the Great Room, the ceremony space was transformed for the evening reception. White linens were paired with classic chocolate brown chairs for a clean and modern look, and bright purple floral centerpieces gave each and every table a wonderful pop of color. As the sun started to set over the city, the walls lit up with a beautiful wash of purple uplighting and the votive candles on the tabletops added to the warm glow. Following their first dance, toasts and dinner, the dance floor was opened and guests celebrated alongside the newlyweds.
Special thank you to Sarah and Mark for including us in your beautiful wedding day, and for being so much fun to work with. Congratulations!
