Alyssa and Ryan chose the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Boston to celebrate their wedding day this January. We started off the afternoon with Alyssa and her bridesmaids who got ready at the hotel while Ryan and his groomsmen walked over to The Art of Shaving on Newbury Street for old fashioned shaves. The bride and groom opted for their first look on the grand staircase. A little cold was not going to stop the couple from heading over to the Commonwealth Avenue Mall for a few photographs before meeting up with the wedding party for formal photos around the hotel. We love that the Mandarin has so many great locations for photos and were able to utilize several of these spaces with the couple prior to their ceremony.
Before walking down the isle, the couple signed the Ketubah alongside immediate family and wedding party. Following the traditional Jewish ceremony that took place in the ballroom, the newlyweds and their guests enjoyed cocktail hour while the room was transformed. Alyssa and Ryan wanted their wedding to reflect the look and style of the venue with a wintery feel. Navy, silver, gold and ivory colors were used throughout the various decor along with candle light and white centerpieces.
Before the couple could even be introduced, Beantown had all of the guests up on their feet dancing. Following the first dance, hora and toasts, the band got everyone back up dancing for the rest of the evening celebration. A big congratulations to Alyssa and Ryan and thank you for being so much fun to work with on your beautiful wedding day and to the amazing team at the Mandarin for always being so fantastic to work with!
