We had so much fun capturing this beautiful wedding day with Jen and Greg — the bride looked beautiful, the weather could not have been better, and everyone was so happy to be together celebrating this amazing couple. The bride and groom chose the State Room Boston as their wedding venue, perched high above the heart of downtown Boston at 60 State Street with a spectacular view of the city from 33 stories up!
The happy couple and bridal party got ready for the day in the nearby Hilton Boston Downtown. Jen + Greg chose colors of gold, white, and soft blush as their wedding inspiration, and you could see it right away in Jen’s beautiful bouquet. She carried an arrangement of white calla lilies and soft pink roses, and her bridesmaids matched perfectly in summery pink dresses. The bride and groom had their traditional “first look” in one of the Hilton suites before heading out to the trolley.
We took advantage of the perfect August weather and made the quick trip to the nearby Post Office Square in downtown Boston for some formal wedding photography. We got some great pictures of Jen, Greg and their wedding party outside in the sunshine before hopping back in the trolley to the State Room Boston.
The wedding ceremony took place in the State Room Boston’s Great Room, with beautiful black ballroom chairs, two gorgeous floral arrangements on either side of the altar, and an aisle lined with pink rose petals. The Great Room’s floor-to-ceiling windows provided the perfect backdrop as the happy couple said their “I do”s.
After the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres upstairs on the Mezzanine while the Great Room was transformed for the evening wedding reception. The tables were topped with shimmery champagne linens paired with towering white and pink floral centerpieces.
As the sun started to set, the view of the city skyline became even more spectacular outside. The newlyweds’ closest friends and family gave heartfelt toasts, while an impromptu fireworks show from the city below filled the sky with amazing fireworks! Jen told us that the exact same thing happened at her Bat Mitzvah years earlier, so the firework display was extra special for her.
After dinner, toasts, and parent dances, the dance floor was opened up for all the guests to enjoy — and they certainly did! We could tell that everyone was so happy to be enjoying this day with Jen and Greg, and the fun and energetic atmosphere lasted late into the night. A big thank you to the newlyweds for being so fun and easy to work with, and to all their friends and family for including us in this wonderful day. Congratulations Jen + Greg!
