Downtown Boston Wedding at The State Room | Liz + Rob

When Liz and Rob were looking for their perfect Boston wedding venue, they wanted a location that really showcased the beauty of the city. Their summer wedding at the State Room gave their guests an unforgettable night in Boston with one of the best views in the entire city.

The bride and groom both got ready at the nearby Langham Hotel and the first look took place in Boston’s beautiful Post Office Square just across the street. Before heading to the State Room for the ceremony we spent some time taking photos of the couple with their wedding party in the beautiful surroundings before the short walk over to State Street.

The late afternoon wedding ceremony took place in the State Room Boston’s Great Room, overlooking the city 33 stories below. Liz and Rob said their “I do”s underneath a traditional wedding Chuppah, interwoven with beautiful white and purple flowers. After the ceremony, guests moved upstairs to enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres while the Great Room was transformed for the reception.

The Great Room was lit with a wash of purple uplights and tables were topped with a mix of short and tall floral arrangements in various shades of purple and green. Guests enjoyed an energetic Hora, toasts, and parent dances, as well as the gorgeous view of the sunset (followed by a spectacular supermoon) through the State Room’s floor-to-ceiling windows. The dance floor was packed all night as friends and family celebrated with this wonderful couple.

Thank you to the team at the State Room Boston, and to Liz, Rob and their families for being so great to work with. Congratulations Liz and Rob!

Modern City Wedding at the State Room Boston | Alyssa + Daniel

Alyssa + Dan first met at Boston University where they were both a part of the track team. Seven years later, their summer wedding at the State Room Boston showcased their love, their alma mater, and the city that they call home!

The bride and groom started the day getting ready at the Langham Hotel in Downtown Boston. Daniel surprised Alyssa with a fun gift — a custom pair of white Nike running shoes with purple accents to match their wedding colors. The shoes even had their wedding date and wedding hashtag printed on the back! They decided not to see each other before the wedding, so we went straight to Boston University’s beautiful Marsh Chapel to start the ceremony. Because both Alyssa + Daniel are Boston University alum, this historic BU wedding chapel was the perfect location for their afternoon wedding ceremony. Following the ceremony, we stayed around the chapel to capture formals with the couple’s family and wedding party and took advantage of the beautiful Boston University campus before heading to the State Room Boston to start the celebration. We made a quick stop en route to the State Room at Boston’s Post Office Square for some photos with Alyssa + Dan before joining the rest of the guests at the cocktail hour.

The evening reception took place in the State Room Boston’s Harborside Ballroom, 33 stories high above Boston’s bustling downtown. The panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows made for a stunning view of the Boston harbor and city below, and the couple chose colors of white and ivory with fun lavender and dark purple accents for their decor. They described their wedding day inspiration as “modern city” — clean and chic. Following a first dance, toasts, and a traditional cake cutting, guests packed the dance floor to celebrate with this wonderful couple!

A very special thank you to the entire State Room Boston team for another flawless event. Congratulations Alyssa + Dan on your beautiful Boston wedding day!

The Barn at Gibbet Hill Wedding of Erin and Joey

Erin and Joey first met when Joey was hired to paint Erin’s best friend’s house several years ago. The couple decided to incorporated paint-themed details into their Barn at Gibbet Hill wedding day to pay homage to the day that started it all. The couple wanted their wedding day to be bright and colorful with a vintage and rustic feel and Gibbet Hill was the perfect venue for that.

After getting ready at the Westford Regency Inn & Conference Center, we headed to Groton to the beautiful St James Church for the wedding ceremony. Erin and Joey said their “I do”s during a traditional Catholic Wedding Mass before making their way to the Barn at Gibbet Hill for the reception. Joey’s uncle is a priest and performed their ceremony which made their nuptials extra special.

It was a perfect summer day and the green hills on the property of Gibbet Hill made for a beautiful backdrop for photographs with Erin, Joey, and their wedding party. The Barn itself was transformed into a rustic and elegant wedding reception for the evening’s dinner and dancing. A colorful arrangement of wooden painting sticks served as the guests’ escort cards, and they were hung between two painter’s ladders to pay tribute to the day Erin and Joey first met. The bright coral and green centerpieces were displayed in golden paint buckets, and the table’s menu cards featured a beautiful border of hand-painted pink flowers. We loved how the bride and groom added so many personal details to their decor, making their day a truly unique and romantic one. Following dinner, their guests packed the dance floor to celebrate with this wonderful couple!

A special thank you to the entire Barn at Gibbet Hill wedding team for this gorgeous event, and to Erin and Joey for letting us be a part of it! Congratulations!
