From Lindsey Ocker PhotographyAfter this past winter in Boston, being buried by snowstorm after snowstorm, I wanted to pull something together that would mix bright, vibrant florals with the coziness of an old Boston space. The exposed brick and beams inspired us to create floral installations to accentuate those features while creating a space that felt new, glamorous, and really fun. Sweet Annie Floral Design took the lead to create these spaces with hanging greenery and gorgeous pops of peach and burgundy. Craft cocktails by mobile drinkery WanderLush, including lavender honey gimlets and cherry thyme spritzers, added elegance and entertainment. We wanted to create a party that felt cozy and charming and vibrant while Boston was still blanketed in cold and snow, and we were so thrilled with the way everything came together. It was a party I’d love to attend again, for sure.

Black-Tie Boston Winter Wonderland Wedding

The State Room in Boston, MA is one of those iconic places to get married. With sprawling floor to window ceilings, it’s impossible to not get chills when you enter the dramatic space which is why this winter wedding took my breath away. The sophisticated affair captured by Kate Preftakes Photography oozes romance and every detail was planned to perfection. From the gorgeous invites by Smudge Ink to an aisle lined with rose petals, you can see every gorgeous detail here.

From the Kate Preftakes Photography… Cassie and Jason had the loveliest winter wedding in downtown Boston! We started out at the incredible Ames Hotel for getting ready photos and a first look then headed over to The State Room where the wedding was held. I don’t think it’s possible to convey how much I loved Cassie’s dress! She was stunning from head to toe and there was such a classic elegance to their entire black tie affair. Not only were these two gorgeous, but they were so incredibly happy and sweet all day. When a couple is utterly in love with each other it really shows and happiness radiates around them. Such was the case with Cassie and Jason and their entire families.

The State Room is an incredible venue with the most amazing view of Boston. The ceremony was timed to view a sunset but what they got was gently falling snow and it couldn’t have been more perfect. The room just sparkled with all of Cassie’s little touches and Longwood Events always makes their events flawless. The band Kahootz kept the party going and the dance floor was packed all night!

From the Bride… I wanted to bring traditional elements to our wedding since the State Room is a very modern venue. The blank canvas opened the doors to lots of glitter and gold I wanted to incorporate. My grandmother’s fur stole was my something borrowed and I loved having her with me the day of in spirit. We knew we wanted great food and dancing therefore Kahootz was a given! I feel so blessed to have Jason and to share our day with family and friends.

West Elm + Style Me Pretty Wedding Registry Pop-Up

One of the best perks of tying the knot? Sprucing up your newlywed abode with registry goodies, of course. A few weeks ago, we partnered with the West Elm to launch their brand new wedding registry. Alongside some of our favorite local vendors, we pored over their gorgeous wares, snapped fun photo booth pics, indulged in sweets from Mayflour and Blackbird Doughnuts, and got to chat with some pretty darn adorable Boston soon-to-be’s. It was an incredible day to say the least and we were so happy to be a part of West Elm‘s new adventure!

Petal Floral Design‘s spread was so indicative of designer Becca’s aesthetic….lush, organic and utterly beautiful. Becca can basically transform any space into something dreams are made of and she used a few elements from West Elm to crank it up a couple of notches. But honestly, the best part about Becca is that she is one of the coolest chicks I know and just wants to do what she loves most…make beautiful things. 

Ruthie is one of our nearest and dearest friends and she was on hand to not only show off her gorgeous portfolio, but to also shoot the gathering in all its glory. Ruthie is responsible for so many of our favorite moments on Style Me Pretty and not surprisingly, she really captured the event so beautifully. We heart Ruthie in a big way.

I’ve been a longtime admirer of Lauren‘s work so to get to meet the lovely lady behind the genius was a definite highlight. And when I tell you she didn’t disappoint, that might be the understatement of the century. Lauren is the very definition of loveliness and she came equipped with one of the cutest favors I’ve ever seen – tiny firestarter kits for late summer nights under the stars. I could die.

I could basically fall in love with anyone that offers me free samples of buttercream but Jocelyn of Mayflour Cakes is on an entirely other level. She was doling out petite bites of heaven that had the words honey and lavender in them and to be honest, I was shoveling them into my mouth faster than I could hear any more about them. Plus, she just has a way with beautiful cakes so they were as pretty as they were yummy.

I think my husband Tait – also an SMP-er – basically rooted himself beside the Blackbird Doughnut display. And funny, the whole crowd seemed to innately migrate towards them too. Why? Oh maybe because these doughnuts are AH.MAZING. Dark Chocolate Ganache, Lemon Raspberry and oh I don’t know, some other amazing flavors were definitely the belle of the ball.

Intimate Boston Restaurant Wedding

I’m lucky enough to live close to the Boston Public Garden, but still stop and stare at its beauty every visit. Spacious and serene, it’s also one idyllic spot for wedding pics. Jen Ing snapped these lovebirds among the garden’s romantic trees – complete with pup in tow – before heading to their celebration at a nearby restaurant. From these pics to the restaurant’s chic style, we have a winner, hands down.

From Jen Ing PhotographyLily and Andy held an intimate wedding at Cinquecento restaurant in Boston. With only six months to plan the wedding, they wanted to keep things simple and intimate. Lily and Andy are self-proclaimed foodies and their vision of a perfect wedding was to eat and drink the night away with family and friends. Thus came the idea to throw a large dinner party and indulge in a delicious meal together instead of having a traditional wedding reception.

The wedding vision was inspired by Lily’s Jenny Packham dress, which she found after trying on only four wedding dresses! Says the bride, “I loved how light and comfortable I felt and knowing that I would not have to fuss around with a big skirt on our wedding day. My favorite part of the dress was the delicate flutter sleeves. I limited myself to doing only a few DIY projects. Paper Source had some gorgeous invitations with gold-foiled designs which I used to print our table numbers, signature drink menus and seating assignments. Our favors were artisan marshmallows tucked into muslin bags with a custom stamp which I hand-stamped myself. I had the most fun working with our coordinator at Cinquecento to come up with our signature drinks. Mine was a mocktail called ‘The Blushing Bride’ and Andy’s was a gin-based cocktail called ‘The Dapper Gin-tlemen.'”

Lily and Andy included some romantic art deco elements in touches of pink and gold, an homage to the Gatsby era, and neutral florals which beautifully complemented the restaurant’s more masculine and rustic aesthetic of reclaimed wood, bricks, and leather.

Prior to the wedding, we got some lovely shots of Lily and Andy together in Boston’s lush Public Garden, always a favorite for portraits. The couple says doing their first look and portraits was their favorite part of the day, especially since their dog, Polly, got to make an appearance.

Classic Old State House Wedding in Boston

I love calling Boston my city. It’s got a cozy kind of charm with all it’s historic buildings and quaint cobblestone streets tucked into a gorgeous harbor. And right there in the middle of it, sits the Old State House where these two lovebirds said their beautiful I do’s—the Bride holding her sweet peach garden rose bouquet from Winston Flowers and the Groom looking dapper in gray. Kelly Dillon documented the day with these breathtaking images—see it all here!

From the beautiful Bride… Leo and I met actually a few blocks down from the Old State House at Bell in Hand (Americas oldest tavern). After 5 years together Leo proposed to me on a train we were taking down to Florida. Every year we would take a sleeper car down the east coast from Boston to Florida together. It was a perfect place to propose!

I really wanted our wedding to be relaxed and intimate. I liked the idea of having our ceremony in a historic building, and when we saw the old state house we fell in love with the space. I wanted the decor to be modern but have a vintage feel since we were getting married in a historic building. We wanted things polished but not perfect looking to leave things a bit more informal. I also wanted people to leave with few tokens. I like the idea of handkerchiefs for ceremony that could be useful and also great for everyone. I asked Leo to design the logo for our wedding, we used this on the handkerchiefs and we played off of the coat of arms, lion an unicorn that is on the old state house. If you look at the time on these it is set to 5:30, the time of our ceremony. I also used the lions for the escort cards.
