Happy Monday, lovelies!  We're kicking off the week here on Style Me Pretty Massachusetts with a delightful Boston affair that is absolutely guaranteed to brighten your day (and week) with lovely.  Simply brimming with fabulous nautical details, beautiful blooms by Studio One Twenty Three, darling paper goods (By the oh-so-talented bride!) and one very breathtaking location, I haven't stopped smiling since the moment I laid my eyes on each and every brilliant image captured by Melissa Mermin Love Stories.  And the wine bottles decorated with photos of the bride and groom's cute as can be puppies?  LOVE.  So, don't wait another moment... Join me in the gallery for even more!

From Melissa Mermin Love Stories... Brendan proposed to Julie atop the XV Beacon hotel in Beacon Hill, so it was fitting to have their rehearsal dinner there at the new restaurant and wine cellar Mooo. Both Brendan and Julie have family ties to the Navy, and Julie had her grandfathers dog tags from WWII pined to her bouquet. The ceremony and reception were held in the historic Navy yard of Charlestown, Boston at the Commandant's House, built in 1806. They had favors of nautical maps for the guests as favors. Their dogs Lucy and Oliver were featured on their wine bottles.
