It’s that time of year again — the 18th annual Brides of Distinction Bridal Brunch and Fashion Show was held at the Omni Parker House last weekend! This annual event sponsored by Boston Wedding Magazine brings together event professionals, experts, and lots of brides-to-be to give them all the tools they need to plan their wedding day.

This year the 130+ guests began the morning with a mimosa cocktail hour and a meet-and-greet with the wonderful wedding professionals in attendance. Then it was time for brunch, which featured a panel hosted by both Jenny Johnson and Billy Costa. The hosts had a chat with Boston Weddings Executive Editor Francesca Mills, followed by their annual cake parade. Guests got to see an array of different cake styles, designs, and flavors to inspire them for their own wedding planning including a champagne cake inspired by Jenny Johnson’s Champy by Montilio’s. Last but not least was their annual fashion show of wedding gowns and bridemaids dresses — the fashion show featured models showing off dresses from both L’elite Bridal and Musette Bridal.

This bridal brunch is always so much fun, it gives couples and event professionals the chance to mix and mingle and leaves the brides feeling exciting and inspired for their own big wedding days. Special thanks to the Omni Parker House for hosting this wonderful event, and for inviting us to be the exclusive photographers for over 10 years — we love being a part of it!

For this beautiful Fall wedding at the Omni Parker House, who better to tell us about the wedding day than the bride herself. Michelle said: “A wedding is such a crazy experience. You spend over a year planning for a party; there’s ups and downs and twists and turns that you could never predict. When the day finally came, it turned out to be our best day ever.”

Michelle and Bill have a long history with the Omni Parker House in Boston. Bill’s mother, Elaine, works at the venue and has been an industry friend of ours for many years. When her son and Michelle got engaged, the Omni Parker House turned out to be the perfect choice. As Michelle put it: “When we first got engaged, it did not take long for us to decide we wanted to have a wedding in the city. We both grew up in suburbs close to Boston, and had been living downtown for several years. The Omni Parker House quickly became the obvious choice, not only because of the groom’s long family history with the Hotel, but because of the beautiful historic feel to the function rooms.”

After getting ready for the day in the Hotel, both bride and groom took a quick walk across the street to the Old City Hall for their first look. To keep with the “historic Boston” feel of the day, the wedding party hired a trolley to take them around the city for some formal photos. First stop was the Boston Public Garden, followed by the couple’s favorite neighborhood bar where they had had their first date — the Harvard Gardens on Cambridge Street in Boston. Then it was back to the Omni Parker House for the wedding ceremony. Michelle and Bill became husband and wife in a beautiful evening ceremony in the Omni Parker House’s Press Room, then it was up to the rooftop terrace for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.

The reception was held in the Omni Parker House Ballroom. “We wanted a classic romantic feel to match the charm of the hotel. We decided on tuxedos and black gowns for the wedding party, and decided we wanted to use a lot of greens for our flowers. The staff at the Omni, the lighting team from Entertainment Specialists, and the wonderful team we worked with at Winston’s Flowers did an incredible job of transforming the room into our dream ballroom.” Michelle and Bill chose classic, neutral colors of white, creme, and shades of brown to match the Ballroom’s classic historic decor, and the towering green and white centerpieces from Winston’s really made the room pop. Michelle and Bill could not have been happier to be celebrating this day with their loved ones. “Surrounded by all our family and friends, we celebrated our love and the start of our new lives together as husband and wife. Looking back, there are so many memories from that day that make us smile, and more than a couple that we know will continue to bring a tear of joy to our eyes forever.”

Special thanks to Elaine, Alison Rose, and the entire team at the Omni for this wonderful wedding celebration, and to Michelle and Bill for letting us be a part of it!

We could not have asked for a more gorgeous spring day to celebrate Nicole + Pat’s wedding at the Omni Parker House Boston. The couple was looking for the feeling of their wedding day to be soft and romantic, with colors of gold and blush pink and a fun “city chic” atmosphere! The Omni Parker House Boston’s location right in the heart of the city was perfect for that bustling downtown city atmosphere, and with the nearby parks and historic locations we had lots of opportunity for unique wedding photos with the bride and groom.

Our day started with the bride and her bridesmaids getting ready at the Omni Parker House Boston, while Pat and his groomsmen got ready and hung out at their apartment in South Boston. When everyone was ready, we met up in the Boston Public Garden for the bride and groom’s first look, while the smiling wedding party looked on from a distance.  We took advantage of the amazing weather and had time to utilize a few different locations in the Public Garden for formal wedding party photos before heading down to the Gate of Heaven church in South Boston for the ceremony.

Following the ceremony, we took the newlyweds to their neighborhood for a few more photos — including a stop at their favorite park, Thomas Park, just a few blocks away from their South Boston apartment. We then made the trip back into downtown Boston for some pictures in front of the historic Old City Hall on Tremont Street  before heading back inside the Omni Parker House Boston to begin the evening reception.

The Omni Parker House Rooftop Ballroom was transformed into an elegant spring wedding reception with a mix of bright pink high and low floral centerpieces, and gold ballroom chairs. We loved the custom touches Nicole and Pat included throughout their reception.  Gold-framed signs displayed their special wedding hashtag and signature wedding cocktail — named the “Southie Wildcat” to pay homage to the bride and groom’s neighborhood and alma mater. Following the first dance and toasts from wedding party, we were able to sneak away with Nicole and Pat to get a few photos on the Omni Parker House’s beautiful rooftop, which overlooks the city with an unbeatable view of the Boston skyline. We came back inside for the cake cutting, parent dances, and a night full of dancing to celebrate this wonderful couple.

Special thanks to the team at the Omni Parker House Boston for a wonderful evening, and to Nicole + Pat for letting us be a part of your beautiful city chic spring wedding day! We had a blast!

Stephanie and James wanted to keep the feeling of “old world” early Boston alive at their beautiful Downtown Boston wedding which included two historic buildings.

The day began at the Omni Parker House, a building that has been around since the 1850’s, right in the heart of Downtown Boston. Stephanie got dressed and ready in the hotel with her friends and family, with a funky pair of custom blue wedding shoes completing her outfit! In the meantime James was preparing for the day with his own group, and although the couple didn’t see each other before the ceremony, they did exchange wedding day cards to each other.

The next stop was the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Boston’s South End, another historic 1850’s building, for the catholic ceremony. This cathedral definitely has an old-world Boston feel — with high vaulted ceilings and lots of stained glass, it always makes for great pictures. We stuck around the church after the ceremony for a few pictures with the newlyweds and their wedding party before heading back to the Omni Parker House for the party.

The reception took place in the Omni’s Rooftop Ballroom, looking colorful and elegant with classic white table settings and pink and purple uplighting. Everyone was happy to celebrate well into the night with the newlyweds!

Congratulations to Stephanie and James, we had a blast sharing this day with you!

Downtown Boston Wedding at the historic Omni Parker House of Stephanie and James

Newlyweds Jill and Mike wanted a very formal and traditional wedding and they knew as soon as they saw Boston’s Omni Parker House that is was the perfect location for their reception!

In keeping with their vision of the wedding, Jill chose a stunning classic Vera Wang ball gown and the groom wore a traditional Calvin Klein tuxedo. After a few getting ready shots with the bride and bridemaids, it was off to the church for a few photographs of Mike and the guys.

Before kicking off the reception we headed to the Old City Hall across the street from the Omni Parker House for some formal photos with the couple and their wedding party. From there we headed to the beautiful lobby in the hotel as well as the roof deck overlooking the Boston Common and city skyline for a few more photos of the bride and groom.

The party kicked off in the Rooftop Ballroom with entertainment by the band Stardust. We love that Jill and Mike chose a traditional Boston Cream Pie for their cake as it was actually created by the chef of the original historic Omni Parker House back in the mid-1800’s. Congratulations Jill and Mike! We had a wonderful time capturing your day!
