Timeless Elegance at the Boston Public Library

Julia and Gregg married on a lovely summer day at the unparalleled Boston Public Libary.

Heirloom Pictures recently had the pleasure of capturing Julia and Gregg at one of our most favorite locales in Boston; we love the Boston Public Library for many reasons, the least of which is its grand architecture and dramatic scenery. The day began as Julia and her closest girlfriends and family gathered at her parents’ place nearby. The ladies helped Julia with her final preparations for the day and put the finishing touches on before the couple’s First Look.

The couple chose the Grand Staircase as the location for their First Look where they shared in a few quiet moments before their ceremony. The magnificent Courtyard at the BPL is always a stunning backdrop for a wedding ceremony. Surrounded by their nearest and dearest, vows and rings were exchanged in a custom ceremony with a friend of the couple officiating. The celebration moved to cocktail hour followed by the reception in historic Bates Hall.

Filled with the glow of the antique green lamps, the couple chose a classic palette of whites, creams, and greens running down the center of each guest table. Julia and Gregg had been excited to have all of the loved ones in one room celebrating together alongside them – it is clear they were soaking up every moment. They listened to heartfelt toasts, enjoyed exquisite food and danced the night away enjoying every second of this memorable day. Julia and Gregg are looking forward to sharing these highlights with everyone and especially excited to share with Gregg’s grandmother and uncle who were unable to attend. Please enjoy!

Sweet Summer Wedding at the Historic Castle Hill on the Crane Estate

Chelsey & Liang ~ Sweet Summer Wedding at the Historic Castle Hill on the Crane Estate from Heirloom Pictures on Vimeo.

Chelsey and Liang married on a lovely summer day at the historic Great House on the Crane Estate in Ipswich, MA.

The Crane Estate is one of the most absolutely stunning locations to hold an event. From it’s seaside location to the half-mile-long Grand Allée to the rich history of the estate and the beautiful architecture of the restored Great House, Chelsey and Liang knew the moment they visited it was the spot for them. They wanted a romantic and light affair with all the formality of a black-tie evening. Chelsey and Liang decided to have a First Look in the Italian Garden on the estate – one of our most favorite moments to capture for its poignant sweetness.

The rolling lawns of the Grand Allée make for an unbelievable backdrop for a ceremony. With gorgeous weather and panoramic views, Chelsey and Liang said their ‘I do’s’ surrounded by their nearest and dearest.

The reception held under the tent where the newlyweds and guests enjoyed dinner & toasts before packing the dance floor celebrating the night away! Heirloom Pictures is so thrilled to show Chelsey and Liang the highlights from their day. We know they are also excited to share with their family in China who was unable to make this special day. Please enjoy!
