A Chic City Wedding at the State Room in Downtown Boston
Elysa and Keith exchanged vows on June 11, 2016 at the State Room in historic downtown Boston. Surrounded by history & culture, Elysa & Keith wanted to celebrate their marriage in the heart of the city where they met and live. What better location than the quintessential State Room offering sweeping panoramic views of the city they love. Elysa’s spent quality time getting ready with her nearest and dearest in preparation for one of her favorite moments of the day, the first look. She recalls savoring the moments leading up to and during the first look where they enjoyed the first glimpses of each other and a quick private moment. Reminiscing on the day, Keith confessed his most favorite part of the day was Elysa walking down the aisle towards him.
Their love for hosting was evident with a sweet and elegant ceremony blending cultures and families. Intimate candlelight complemented by walls washed in warm light made for a stunningly beautiful reception. Friends and family gathered to toast, celebrate, feast, and of course, dance the night away. They are especially excited to share the highlights with Keith’s Grandmother who was unable to attend the festivities. Truly a good time was had by all. Please enjoy the highlights as much as we did capturing this lovely June day!

Elegant Rhode Island Wedding at Linden Place in Bristol
Jenny and Ian were married on June 20, 2015 at the historic and elegant Linden Place in Bristol, RI. Jenny and Ian picked this location with its picturesque downtown and waterfront charm mostly for their guests so that they would have a lovely destination to vacation at while visiting for the wedding. For Jenny and Ian the most memorable moment of the day was when Jenny came down the aisle and walked to Ian. The formal garden with its abundant flower bushes was a perfect romantic setting for the ceremony and the candle lit carriage house turned reception hall was cozy and intimate for their reception. While guests danced and celebrated inside, the rain made a bold entrance but mother nature is a true lady and knew when it was time to leave. The clouds parted just in time for the sparkler exit. Congratulations Jenny and Ian on your beautiful day, the Beshert thing worked. 😉
