Gul and Ali traveled all the way from Istanbul, Turkey to celebrate their beautiful autumn wedding at the Hampshire House Boston. Gul’s sister lives right in the Hampshire House neighborhood on Boston’s historic Beacon Hill, and the couple and their families often make the trip from Turkey to visit. When it came time to start planning their wedding, they knew Beacon Hill was the place they wanted to be — and the Hampshire House Boston was the perfect venue for their beautiful and intimate wedding celebration!
We met up with the bride and groom at the Liberty Hotel immediately following their wedding ceremony, and took some photos as the bride got into her beautiful Vera Wang gown for formal photos and the evening reception. We spent the late afternoon with the newlyweds in the Boston Public Garden for some romantic shots in front of the beautiful Autumn foliage. Gul’s stunning gown was matched perfectly with a bouquet of white and purple calla lilies. As the sun started to set we made our way to the Hampshire House Boston for the evening wedding reception.
The Hamsphire House’s upstairs Library was beautifully decorated for an intimate wedding dinner party, starting with the customized chalkboard sign pointing guests in the right direction. A long dining table was set in the middle of the room for the 16 guests — Gul + Ali’s closest friends and family from both Boston and Turkey. Purple uplighting gave the room a beautiful wash of color, and the table was topped with long runners and a series of matching floral arrangements. Large candles also lined the center of the table, giving the room a beautiful warm glow. The light pink wedding cake featured a beautiful set of pink dusted edible flowers, and was set on a table covered in purple and white flowers to match the centerpieces and bride’s bouquet.
Gul, Ali, and their guests enjoyed a beautiful evening with each other, including heartfelt toasts, and a fun night of dancing for the whole group. We were so happy to be a part of this very special wedding on Beacon Hill, thank you to the entire team at the Hampshire House Boston and congratulations Gul + Ali!
