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.
