We loved all the details of this beautiful summer wedding at the Fairmont Copley Plaza Boston! Christina + Sean chose their color inspiration of gold and pink, and everything — from the flowers to the dresses to linens — matched perfectly. With the event design of Elizabeth Sleeper from Table 6 Productions, the bride and groom got the perfect wedding day they always dreamed of.
Before the early evening ceremony, we spent the afternoon getting ready with Christina + Sean at the Fairmont Copley Plaza. Christina wore a stunning strapless wedding gown accented with a silver headpiece. Her floral bouquet was a beautiful mix of light pink, dark pink, and white roses and her three bridesmaids wore soft pink dresses to match.
The bride and groom decided not to see each other before the wedding, so we headed to the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in downtown Boston for the ceremony. Christina + Sean exchanged their wedding rings and “I do”s during a traditional Catholic nuptial mass, and we decided to stick around the Cathedral following the ceremony to get some formal photographs with the newlyweds and their wedding party.
With a smaller wedding party of three bridesmaids and three groomsmen, we had lots of extra time to go to all of their favorite Boston locations around the city. After leaving the Cathedral of the Holy Cross, we headed to the front steps of the Boston Public Library. It was a perfect summer day, so we got some great shots right in the heart of Copley Square with the blue sky and Fairmont and Hancock Tower in the background.
While the bridal party headed back to the Fairmont Copley Plaza to start cocktails, we took Christina + Sean up to Beacon Hill and the famous Acorn Street (named the “most photographed street in the United States”) for a few photos of the newlyweds. Then it was back to Copley Square for some time in the secluded courtyard behind the historic Trinity Church, and finally back into the Fairmont Copley Plaza lobby! Even after all of these great Boston wedding pictures, the bride and groom still had plenty of time to enjoy their cocktail hour before the evening reception began.
We loved the signature drink displays accented with pink rock candy swizzle sticks!
The Oval Room at the Fairmont Copley Plaza was transformed into a gorgeous wedding reception for Christina + Sean. Soft pink uplights washed the walls with bright color, and cozy lounge furniture was placed around the dance floor. Each centerpiece featured golden branches with balls of bright pink flowers, over gold and pink textured linens. When the formalities of the evening were done and it was time to party, Christina changed into a super cute short white dress and kicked off the dancing with Sean and their guests.
Thank you to Elizabeth at Table 6 Productions, as well as Alice and the entire team of the Fairmont Copley Plaza for another spectacular wedding. Congratulations Christina and Sean!
