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.

Quintessential Boston Wedding at the Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel
One thing was clear when it came to Lisa and Joey’s wedding – they love Boston. After all, it’s the city they fell in love and started their life together in so selecting the perfect locale to celebrate made the Fairmont Copley Plaza an easy decision. We joined these two love birds as they were putting on their finishing touches just before the highly anticipated First Look.
It’s also clear why their First Look was a favorite moment of theirs from the day. Lisa remembered, “having that moment as a couple really solidified the rest of an amazing day.” It always feels like such a privilege to witness this one remarkable and tender moment. And how fun that they got to share it with some passers by!
The ceremony was held at the beautiful Saint Cecilia’s Chapel nearby. Lifelong and heartfelt vows were spoken and Lisa’s brother, Greggory, sang a stunning rendition of Ave Maria. Heading back to the Fairmont, an easy and fun atmosphere was widespread as the reception progressed from cocktails to dinner. The details of the evening matched the newlyweds lighthearted and effortless style. Romantic lighting, lovely lush flowers and of course, no shortage of Boston love everywhere you looked. Capping the festivities was a packed dance floor bursting with folks of all ages celebrating alongside these cuties. Heirloom Pictures is so happy to share with you Lisa and Joey’s wedding day highlights. Thank you for including us in this day- it was indeed a GREAT day. We know they are excited to relive their day again with their nearest dearest.

An Intimate Boston Wedding at Alden Castle
Kaylyn and Jarrid were married on a bright New England day at Alden Castle in Brookline. Getting ready at Hotel Commonwealth was a big part of the day. Kaylyn was excited to have a beautifully decorated private loft with sunlight pouring in as the backdrop for all the ladies to prepare. Jarrids room was filled with Red Sox memorabilia and their first look was just steps away from overlooking Fenway.
The most memorable part of the day was the ceremony. Kaylyn and Jarrid wrote their own sweet vows to each other. The ceremony was also conducted by Kaylyns brother which meant a lot to the couple.
Alden Castle was the perfect romantic setting for Kaylyn and Jarrid to celebrate. With the decor featuring photos of generations of parents and grand parents on their wedding days this set the stage for a gathering that was all about family and friends. Gold and pink hues as well as candle light created a warm and cozy atmosphere that included heartfelt toasts, champagne and delicious foo!
Congratulations Kaylyn and Jarrid on your wedding!

Sweet Summer Wedding at the Four Seasons Boston
Karen and Howie were wed on a beautiful summer day in August at the Four Seasons Hotel in Boston.
Karen and Howie imagined their day to be comfortable with lots of love and kindness with a natural, easy feel. When they visited the Four Seasons, they fell in love with it’s stunning but unfussy ballroom. Most importantly, though, Karen could perfectly envision her walk down the aisle to her husband to be, Howie. We joined Karen and Howie as they were getting ready for their anticipated First Look. Karen was dressing with her bridesmaids and family with some final touches. Her beautiful wedding gown was complemented with a simple veil and a mixed bouquet of summer flowers. The gentlemen were prepping as well with the groom straightening ties and having plenty of laughs. The First Look took place on the balcony at the Four Season which overlooks the Boston Public Garden. Capturing this tender moment is always precious and these two were no different – we always fight back tears! Their Jewish ceremony took place in the main ballroom under a chuppah that was effortless and dreamy. Karen likes to remember many special moments but her most favorite is when they exchanged their personalized vows with their nearest and dearest watching.
Karen and Howie assembled a top-notch team of design vendors who created a warm, inviting atmosphere that felt very Karen and Howie. Romantic lighting by the experts at Suzanne B Lowell Lighting pin-spotted the lush, full, floral centerpieces by Artistic Blossoms – a timeless design that echoed the easiness and sweetness of this couple. Dinner and toasts made way for desserts and dancing making for an evening of smiles and celebrating! Congratulations again, Karen and Howie! We absolutely loved capturing this day with you and am so excited to share these highlights with their loved ones.

Sophisticated Summer Wedding at the Four Season’s Boston
Mia and Corbin were married on the 16th of July at St. Augustine’s Parish followed by a lovely reception at the Four Season’s Boston.
The July day began with Mia and Corbin getting ready in each of their parent’s homes with their nearest and dearest before heading off to the wedding ceremony. The couple said their ‘I Do’s” at the same church Mia’s parents were married in years before. They were looking forward to so many special moments but one they both remember fondly was the first moments Mia walks down the aisle. Corbin’s wide smile says it all! After the ceremony, the couple headed off to Boston to the Four Season’s to join their guests for celebrating. Donning Decker t-shirts, this fun loving couple created a reception that was both effortless and laid back. A balance of timeless elegance with full summer blossoms and a sophisticated palette. Dinner and desserts made way for dancing and more dancing where the guests enjoyed the night with full hearts and happy memories.
We are so happy to share Mia and Corbin’s highlights; thank you for having Heirloom Pictures capture your day.

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!
