Hillary + Jonathan – The Fairmont Copley Plaza, Boston, MA

Hillary and Jonathan were married at the historic Fairmont Copley Plaza in Boston in June. Their mix of fun and traditional touches made this couple and their celebration both modern and timeless. Take Hillary’s killer blue shoes and nail polish, for example! No one ever said “something blue” had to be something boring. Hillary was absolutely stunning with her fabulous glam squad, her custom made Mark Zunino gown, and the loving support of her sweet family, as she got ready for the big day!

Surrounded by 21 of their closest family and friends, was the traditional signing of the Ketubah.  Immediately following was their ceremony.  As Jewish tradition has it, their parents joined them beneath the chuppah.  The jaw dropping, grand ballroom was transformed, for the romantic ceremony, with beautiful ambient lighting,  and enormously impactful florals of mother of pearl blush roses, white Tibet roses, Sahara champagne roses, Vendella cream roses, white hydrangeas and towering blush and white cherry blossoms mixed with green leaf accents.

Following the exciting breaking of the glass, guests enjoyed a cocktail hour which preceded the reception, back in the breathtaking ballroom.   With a subtle change in lighting, towering white blooms and accents of gold coordinated with the glamorous ballroom, it was nothing less that spectacular.  Guests danced and celebrated to the incredible Night Shift Entertainment.  Later in the evening, guests were treated to a delicious candy bar and the always anticipated  hora!  The dance floor filled up quickly and stayed full all evening long. Wedding painter Vesna Longton painted the festivities as they occurred, making for a lifelike and life-filled portrait of the day. Cheers to this beautiful couple! Their love for one another, and those around them, emanated throughout and it was such an honor to be a part of such a special day!

A few words from Hillary:

I’m still in denial that my wedding is over. Working with Michelle was absolutely the best experience. She helped keep all timelines in order and confirmed with meticulous attention all of the details of our vendors. The ceremony was a dream. Sleek flowers and elegant lighting made my vision come to life. The band made sure everyone stayed on the dance floor until the wee hours of the night. It’s hard to believe that 16 months of planning was over in the blink of an eye. I still look at wedding photos daily to remind myself how fortunate I am to have such an incredibly supportive and generous family, wonderful friends and a wedding team that turned my dreams into a reality. Thank you for being a part of my special day.

Jonah’s Bar Mitzvah – Congregation B’nai Shalom, Westborough + Pinz, Milford

Jonah became a Bar Mitzvah at Congregation B’nai Shalom.  Following the service, was a delicious Kiddush luncheon where family and friends had the chance to gather, celebrate and congratulate! It was also the place where Jonah’s personal project was shown, as he collected and donated children’s books to Boston Medical Center’s Child Life Program, an incredible program that always appreciates donations!

The celebration continued in the evening when Jonah’s family and friends met up with him at Pinz in Milford.  Dance parties are NOT for everyone and I can’t stress enough how impressed I was by his parents recognizing this.  Celebrating in a way that was more up his alley, made it all that more enjoyable for him…and at the end of the day that’s really important.  So instead, Pinz was the perfect solution with glow bowling, video games, laser tag and more. I mean seriously, is there a kid out there who doesn’t love all of that?  They enjoyed great kids food like a taco bar and mini hot dogs, had fun at a photo booth and got to watch a video montage and sports bloopers on the big screens over the bowling alley.  Before the party ended, Lizzie’s Ice Cream came by so everyone could  make ice cream sundae’s!  It was truly a good time had by all (including many of the adult who were seen playing laser tag and video games).
