Irene & James planned an extraordinary wedding at the Boston State Room in the heart of Boston. This Longwood Venue is at the top of an iconic Boston skyscraper that offers incredible views and elevated style for high-end, luxury weddings. Not only are the views gorgeous, but every detail was meticulously planned to tie a metropolitan and romantic aesthetic together.
Irene wanted the wedding to be romantic, airy, and modern whereas James wanted a more urban setting. The two styles were tied together seamlessly with decor and the venue atmosphere. The florals from Beach Plum Florals were absolutely stunning including light & dark mauve tones along with pink, peach, toffee gold, and a touch of white.
The vintage Rolls Royce and the white trolley were perfect for the couple and the bridal party to get around Boston all day and capture a variety of portraits. The Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park offered the perfect blend of lush greenery and a cityscape backdrop.
Pre-covid this couple loved to travel, and Greece was one of their many destinations. While they couldn’t get married abroad in Greece, they still wanted their wedding to feel like an idyllic destination wedding off the coast of Greece.
Incorporating Greek traditions into their wedding day was very important for Irene & James. They chose to get married in a Greek Orthodox Church with a traditional ceremony. During the ceremony, they had Stefana’s crowns placed on their heads, which symbolizes their bond together.
Moreover, for the reception, they had a hybrid of both a Greek band with a Greek American DJ to dance the night away and, of course, do the Greek money dance! All of their guests had an amazing time enjoying the newlyweds and the amazing Boston skyline into the night.
