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!

State Room Boston Wedding with South Boston Wedding Ceremony

Earlier this month we had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Katelyn and Kevin who wed near their house in South Boston. Before the ceremony, Katelyn and the bridesmaids got ready at her parents house in Canton while Kevin and the groomsmen got ready at their home just blocks from the church.

Following their beautiful afternoon ceremony, the wedding party boarded a trolly and headed to Post Office Square in Downtown Boston for formal photographs. PO Square is one of our favorite locations to photograph in the city and is located just around the corner from the State Room Boston where the reception was held. Before the newlyweds joined cocktail hour, we took a moment for a few more photographs on State Street overlooking the Old State House.

While guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres on the balcony they took in the view of the city as the sun started to set. The always gorgeous view was extra spectacular as the rare super moon shined bright in the background throughout the evening celebration. After dinner, Sweet Tooth and the Sugarbabies opened the dance floor and kept the party going throughout the night.

Congratulations Katelyn and Kevin, thank you for having us there to capture your beautiful and fun wedding celebration and thank you to the team at the State Room for always being so wonderful work with!
