South Beach Chic Belle Mer Wedding Photography | Samantha and Chris

Earlier this month we had the pleasure of photographing Samantha and Chris’s elegant, fun-filled summer wedding at Belle Mer on Goat Island in Newport. The glamorous, contemporary venue was the perfect setting for the couple’s exquisite and fresh oceanside celebration.

Samantha and her family got ready at Belle Mer while Chris prepared for the day at a nearby hotel with his family. Everyone traveled to Providence for the ceremony which took place at St. Augustine Church. Following the ceremony we headed to the Elms on iconic Bellevue Avenue in Newport to spend some time taking photographs of the newlyweds. The lush green grass and pink and white flowers at the national historic landmark made for a perfect back drop.

The reception and cocktail hour took place back at Belle Mer where everyone gathered to celebrate and dance to the Starlight Duo while enjoying an unbeatable view overlooking the Atlantic ocean and Newport Bridge. The room was glowing with bright colors, soft flowers and a sense of south beach chic. The couple also added a personal touches on their escort cards by including personalized pictures of all the guests and the cake topper included their beloved dog Penny.

For the reception, the couple enjoyed their grand entrance into the ballroom and shared their first dance to “Bonfire Heart” by James Blunt. Samantha, Chris and their guests enjoyed the seaside lawn, aglow with soft lanterns, fire pit and modern white lawn furniture and the music of Starlight Orchestra kept everyone on their feet throughout the evening.

We could not have been happier to be a part of this wonderful celebration. Congratulations Samantha and Chris!

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!
