Spring Valley Country Club Wedding of Stephanie and Jayson

Stephanie and Jayson’s recent wedding was an elegant  and romantic celebration that took place at the Spring Valley Country Club in Sharon, MA. Spring Valley includes 200 acres of beautiful surroundings outdoors and grand ballroom with floor to ceiling windows throughout overlooking the golf course.

Stephanie got ready at the country club with the bridesmaids by her side. The couple met outside on the green for  their first look at first hole of the 18-hole championship golf course, renowned for its beauty. The bridal party then joined the couple to begin taking formal photos with the beautifully manicured and lush scenery of the grounds.

Prior to their traditional Jewish ceremony, Steph, Jay and their immediate family signed the Ketubah before walking down the isle. Guests enjoyed cocktail hour, and at sunset the everyone moved to their seats for the couples first dance (and  surprise 2nd dance that got everyone on their feet). Following dinner, Steph, Jay and there guests enjoyed an energetic hora and dancing for the remainder of the evening celebration.

Thank you Steph and Jay for having us photograph your wedding day and for being so wonderful to work with. Congratulations again!

Downtown Harvard Club Wedding of Julie + Daniel

When it comes to capturing the essence of Boston, there’s no place for a city wedding quite like the Downtown Harvard Club… with elegant curtain windows opening up to sweeping views of the city and a prime location in the heart of Boston on the 38th Floor of One Federal Street, Julie and Daniel found their ideal venue for such a special event. The bride and groom both got ready for their Downtown Harvard Club Wedding at the charming and historic Langham Hotel. The classic architectural elegance of the Langham was a beautiful backdrop for photos and spending time with friends and family as they prepared for the exciting day ahead.

Julie and Daniel then had their first look in the center of Boston’s financial district at Post Office Square, where we also photographed the wedding party and family. Following the photos, everyone walked over to the Downtown Harvard Club for the ceremony. The room was glowing with tones of purple and green, elegant white rose centerpieces by Madison Floral, and classic white  linens. Guests were captivated by the view of the city from the Downtown Harvard Club, overlooking Boston’s ever changing, surreal urban landscape.

While their guests enjoyed cocktail hour, we photographed the newlyweds at Christopher Columbus Park, right between the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway and the Boston Harbor. Julie and Daniel then joined everyone for their reception introduction. The Bride and Groom entered to “On Top of the World” by Imagine Dragons. Everyone came together to celebrate while the couple shared their first dance. As the reception continued, guest enjoyed a view of fireworks from the 38th floor that lit up the dark night sky. There was even a candy bar for guests to enjoy with chocolate kisses and lollipops because “love is sweet“.

Thank you Julie and Daniel for having us photograph your beautiful Downtown Harvard Club Wedding. Congratulations!!

Marc Hall Design Creates Stunning Nostalgic 60th Wedding Anniversary Celebration

A couple weeks ago we had the absolute pleasure of capturing the 60th wedding anniversary celebration for the parents of Boston based designer Marc Hall. This nostalgic event was spectacularly designed and full of joy and laughter. We asked Marc for his inspiration behind this special event:

“The design inspiration for the entire event was to recall the days of my grandparents birthday parties which took place at my uncle Arthur Hall’s house… My grandparents shared a birthday in august and we would all gather in his backyard pool area… very fond memories… It was always a BBQ in the purest mid century style of the 1900′s…  For this party I couldn’t provide the pool, but I wanted to host it in my atelier because, well, for 1 I had never hosted a family party, 2 most of my relatives had ever seen my store nor attended an event that I produced and 3 no matter if the weather cooperated or not, I knew we could open up my design studio to the open air…

My father being the youngest of 8 and now the patriarch as sole survivor of his family and along with my mom have 23 nieces and nephews just on my dads side of the family… As we began burying the elders, we often spoke of getting together (reunion) under happier occasions than funerals… so I approached my parents with the concept and they were hesitant at first feeling that they didn’t have a perfect marriage all those years to celebrate… I helped bring a healthier perspective to them by sharing that they made it through never the less and stayed true to each other the entire time keeping their marriage vows alive and relative as life partners for better or for the worse as they’re mantra… I thought that was a very powerful message to share with younger generations…

I wanted my atelier to have just the right amount of white blooms in honor of the white flowers they chose 60 years ago to adorn their reception with and I designed 2 botanical dream catchers which at one point during the celebration, they were brought to them so they could release all
negative energy from their past into the dream catchers (where Native Americans believed these evil thoughts and dreams would be caught forever) and blow well wishes for their future together where the dream catchers would release them into the universe…

The first song they danced to at their wedding reception was “because of you” typically the version they loved was sung by Tony Bennet but on their wedding day it was sung by a life long friend and  confident to my mother… I mention the name of the song because one of the most poignant
moments of the affair was my toast to my parents… I took creative license with words from the song  and spun it into my own poetic ode to them…”

A big THANK YOU to Marc Hall and his team at Marc Hall Design for thinking of us for such a beautiful and memorable celebration!
