Morgan + Alex, Hyatt Regency Boston Harbor

Silly, cute, adorable, sweet, fun…I mean I could go on about Morgan and Alex…I really, really could.   The crazy thing is that I only met them the day before their wedding. Yep. They hired me a year before but because they live in California, we didn’t have the opportunity to meet until a few hours before their rehearsal. But honestly, that didn’t matter.  I feel like I’d known them a lifetime.

These two are pure joy and wanted nothing more than to make the most of every moment of their wedding day exactly that.  Thankfully, they were blessed with a spectacular day, as they said their “I do’s” on the beautiful lawn of the Hyatt Regency Boston Harbor, overlooking the Boston Harbor with incredible views of the Boston skyline. Following the ceremony, which was full of countless joyous and happy moments,  guests remained on the lawn and enjoyed cocktail hour and lawn games, lending to the couples playful vibe.

Their vibrant color scheme of lime green and navy blue were carried throughout the wedding. From the program signage to the flowers to the custom made game of corn hole. Guests enjoyed dinner, in the tent on the lawn, where they also enjoyed traditional toasts, a cake cutting and dancing the night away. And, to top off their super fun night, were hot dogs for a late night snack! Congratulations again to this fun loving couple as they near their one year anniversary!

A few words from Morgan:

Michelle is right! It WAS as if we’d known each forever. After some remote planning, she stepped in the day before our wedding to run our rehearsal and intuitively understood exactly what I was going for. On our wedding day, Michelle kept the vibe positive and fun, yet was down to business – exactly what you need on the day of so you can relax and enjoy everything as it comes!
We had a perfect wedding day! Full of family, friends, love, laughter, and late-night hot dogs.

Chrissy + Jon – St. John the Baptist Hellenic Orthodox Church + Langham Hotel, Boston, MA

Chrissy and Jon were married at St. John the Baptist Hellenic Orthodox Church in the South End. Before the wedding Chrissy got ready at the home she shares with Jon, right down the road in South Boston. Alongside were her mom, her 6 bridesmaids and her favorite furry friend, all so excited for the big day!  You could feel all the love the girls had for Chrissy, especially her sisters who loved having fun with her, as you can see in one of the photos.  Chrissy wore a gorgeous traditional lace gown by Eve of Milady and a stone headpiece. The girls wore fun and elegant champagne sequin gowns and the flowers were beautiful in simple shades of ivory and pale pink.

Following their traditional Greek Orthodox Ceremony, the couple was picked up in the Langham Hotel’s pink London-style taxi.  Since they didn’t have a first look, they met their bridal party at the hotel where they took some photos.  Following the bridal party introductions and traditional first dance, Chrissy’s father welcomed guests and her two sisters and Jon’s best man toasted the new couple!  Following dinner guests gathered around the dance floor for parent dances and a fun dance set with their Greek band! The ending sweet touch was honey, jarred by Chrissy’s father who is a beekeeper, which was a favor for every guest…such a special and personal touch.  Happy one year anniversary to this most lovely couple!

A few words from Chrissy:

Planning is not my forté, so when Jon and I got engaged, it wasn’t long before I thought (with some considerable dread), “Oh no, now we have to plan a wedding.” We knew we wanted a city wedding, something close to home, and we lucked out when we fell in love with the Langham. It had just the right balance of city-cool with a dose of history and Post Office Square right outside the door. On the day of the wedding, I felt (mostly) calm knowing Michelle and I had planned the day down to the minute. Sure, not everything went to plan (a runaway bridesmaid and best-man speech gone rogue come to mind) but we rolled through the day surrounded by so much love from our family and friends and that’s what we remember most. We look back at the entire day so fondly – and have photos plastered all over our new home to prove it.
