A simple, elegant, and memorable celebration with their family and friends — that is what Meredith and Sean wanted for their Boston summer wedding. From the heart of downtown Boston to the college where they first met, and ending up at the beautiful Wellesley Country Club on a sunny summer afternoon, this couple could not have asked for a more picture perfect wedding day.

Our first location for the day was the Fairmont Copley Boston, where Meredith and Sean got ready for the day’s celebration. They chose not to see each other before the wedding ceremony, but we took advantage of the Fairmont’s elegant architecture for some individual shots of the two with their respective parties before heading to St Ignatius Church on the Boston College campus. This church held a special meaning for the bride and groom, they actually met at Boston College while they were both attending as students. We stayed on campus following the ceremony for formal photos of the newlyweds, in front of the church and on the rest of the BC grounds.

We all arrived at the Wellesley Country Club for the evening reception — there was still plenty of daylight left on this sunny summer wedding day, and we took Meredith and Sean around the property for a few more photos. The night was full of toasts, dancing, and laughter as this bride and groom celebrated their new union surrounded by their closest family and friends, exactly as they had imagined it.

Special thanks to Meredith and Sean for a beautiful wedding day full of joy and so much fun. Congratulations!

Summer is in full swing for us and we are having such a great year with all of our wonderful couples. Following the recent wedding of Nicole + Trent at the Ritz-Carlton, Boston Common we asked the newlyweds to describe the story of their beautiful wedding day.

“While neither of us are from Boston, my family lives there now, and it’s become a bit of an adopted hometown. With most guests traveling from out of town to attend, we wanted to find a reception spot that showcased all the fantastic things the city has to offer. We also wanted to make sure the food was exceptional. (We’re Italians – enough said). We found all this and more with the Ritz Carlton, Boston Commons. Working with Ralph Black at the Ritz was a dream. He and his team thought of everything, and made the entire experience, from the year-long planning to day-of execution, special, fun and easy. Trent and I felt like royalty throughout the process, and then the wedding weekend itself took things to the next level. Our guests are still talking about the exceptional service.

I feel like the wedding day came and went too quickly! We had a great team of vendors, that worked seamlessly together and the day flowed perfectly. Getting ready with my bridesmaids and mom in my suite was so fun, while Trent and his groomsmen did the same in his. I remember at one point sitting in the make-up chair, overlooking the incredible view we had of the Commons, and feeling beyond blessed.

Our ceremony was held at St. Ignatius of Loyola Parish, on the campus of Boston College, where my parents are parishioners. The service passed by in a blur (probably not to our guests- it was a full Catholic mass!) — but it was extremely meaningful to both Trent and I, as our officiating priest has been a huge blessing to us during the marriage preparation process. The homily he gave made the large wedding feel intimate, and truly conveyed how Trent and I felt about the rite of marriage itself.

Afterwards, we took the majority of photos around campus. With a bridal party full of Florida Gators (including the two of us!), everyone swallowed their pride and had a great time taking shots in landmark areas around BC.

The reception could not have been more perfect…. And it passed by so quickly, despite being 5 hours long! It was an incredible night. My vision was classic elegance, with soft colors and gold details. Mimosa, our florist, created just that. We also wanted our guests to have FUN. The dance floor started to heat up before the first course was even served, so it’s safe to say they did! Our band, Groove Authority, did a great job playing to the crowd, and before we knew it, everyone (and I mean EVERYONE) was dancing. The icing on the cake (pun intended) was just how phenomenal the food was. And it was endless … another Italian requirement.

With a wedding on the larger-side, Trent and I wanted to make sure that all who attended felt included, special and knew how grateful we were to have them there celebrating with us – our closest family and friends, and those who have meant and will continue to mean so much to both Trent and I. It was the best night of our lives, and we are so grateful to all who helped make it that – which was truly everyone in attendance.”

Thank you so much Nicole + Trent for sharing the story of your day with us and congratulations again! It was truly a pleasure capturing your wedding day. And as always, a big thank you to Ralph and his team at the Ritz-Carlton, Boston Common for being so wonderful to work with!
