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!

An Enchanting May Wedding at the Boston Public Library

An Enchanting May Wedding at the Boston Public Library

Kaori and John were married on an early spring day nestled in the heart of historic downtown Boston. The couple wanted to incorporate a garden-like feel within the walls of the preeminent Boston Public Library – to create the most memorable moments as they blend their traditions & loved ones for a once in a lifetime day.

Their first look took place on the grand marble stairs outside of Bates Hall; capturing this very precious moment is always one of our most favorite parts of the day to be able to witness! We made our way to the iconic Courtyard where the ceremony was to take place after grabbing a few formal photos with the entire wedding party. Not to be outshined, Olive, the couple’s beloved collie (with her own social media following!), was ready to celebrate alongside and join in the festivities.

The ceremony was personal and heartfelt, full of raw emotion. One of their favorite parts was when John placed a daffodil in Kaori’s bouquet as a way to honor John’s mother. The afternoon progressed into Bates Hall for the reception where an almost magical atmosphere was created by the all-star team of vendors assembled by the couple. Surrounded by gorgeous spring blossoms, delicate touches of pink and timeless style, this wedding was truly picture perfect. Toasts and dinner progressed into dessert and dancing as Kaori and John enjoyed every second of this night. Heirloom Pictures was thrilled to capture this spectacular occasion and we are so happy to share their highlights with you!

Thank you so much to the entire team of vendors that worked to create this day.

A Joyful and Elegant Wedding at The Boston Public Library – Boston, MA
Simply put, Jennifer and Max’s sweet & romantic Boston Public Library wedding on May 21, 2016, was kismet. Few backdrops can match the magnitude of forever, but the intellectual beauty of this historic location felt simultaneously timeless & warm with an unfussy grandeur. Among the many highlights of the day, Jennifer & Max adored the quiet moments of the first look & vows; their faces say it all. They are especially appreciative of their siblings who officiated the ceremony set in the open air courtyard on a light and breezy May day. When they uttered the words, “We did it!” after the ceremony, you can’t help but smile and know they are a perfect match.
It was easy to feel the love surrounded by friends and family who said time and time again that they were just meant to be. Equally as memorable was the pure joy they had getting down during their first dance setting the tone for a packed dance floor and glorious send off. Enjoy!
