Suzy and Pat wanted the look and feel of their wedding to be classic, timeless and elegant with a touch of fairy tale and the Fairmont Copley Plaza was the perfect location. After the getting ready and first look at the Fairmont, we headed to the Commonwealth Avenue Mall for photos as well as the Boston College campus before the ceremony at St. Ignatius. Cocktail hour took place back at the hotel in the Venetian Room and the reception took place in the Oval Room with music by Groove Authority keeping the celebration going and guests on their feet.

Suzy and Pat chose mint green, pale pinks and gold for the colors of the day with the bridesmaids in floor length mint green dresses by Amsale from Allegria Bridal of Belmont. The flowers were a mix of white hydrangeas with shades of pink peonies and roses. The gold throughout the venue was accented with pops in everything from the menus to the Suzy and her bridesmaid’s shoes.

From the bride: “Pat and I met at Boston College, so we always knew we wanted to get married at St. Ignatius Church on the BC campus. The Fairmont Copley Plaza was always where I wanted to have my wedding reception. As a child, my dad would take me every year into Boston for First Night each New Year’s Day to see the ice sculptures. I would always love seeing the gold lion statues outside of the Copley. When I was six, there had been a New Year’s Eve wedding the night before and they were having brunch the next morning in the Oval Room. I peaked my head into the room and told my dad I was going to have my wedding at the Copley when I grew up.”

A big congratulations to the newlyweds Suzy + Pat and thank  you to the amazing team at the Fairmont Copley Plaza for always being so wonderful to work with!

It was the first weekend of the season that really felt like summer, and we were so happy to celebrate the gorgeous weather with Elizabeth and Ben at their Harvard Club of Boston Wedding in Back Bay!

Elizabeth and her wedding party started the day getting ready in the beautiful rooms above the Harvard Club. The bride wore a classic white lace wedding gown, a great choice for the late-spring heat, and her bridesmaids matched perfectly in strapless champagne-colored gowns. The bouquets from Stapleton Floral added a light splash of pink, purple, and green to the ladies’ dresses.

The couple’s first look and photo shoot with their bridal party took place in the Harvard Club’s Massachusetts Room — the sweeping red curtains and black and white checkered floor were perfect for a classic and elegant backdrop. After the ceremony at the nearby Church of the Advent behind Boston’s historic Beacon Hill, we took advantage of the flawless spring weather to get some shots with the newly-married couple in the Boston Public Garden!

Guests returned to the Harvard Club of Boston for the evening reception, which took place downstairs in the Club’s Harvard Hall. The dark wood-paneled walls and towering ceilings provide a great neutral color palette to accentuate with decor. The red chairs, colorful red centerpieces, and red-trimmed flatware added the perfect touch of color to this beautiful space. The Hall’s central fireplace and ornate chandeliers, along with traditional candelabras on the surrounding walls, made this wedding reception warm, intimate, and classically elegant.

Thank you to Elizabeth + Ben, and the whole team at the Harvard Club of Boston for such a wonderful wedding day!
