Boston never disappoints when it delivers a classically chic celebration. It’s a city that just knows how to throw a sophisticated soiree, and this morning we get to ooh and aww over this pretty party by Ned Jackson Photography held at the oh so gorgeous Mandarin Oriental. From the breathtaking church to the beautiful ballroom reception, no detail was missed for the dapper pair – and you can see it all in the full gallery of images!
From Ned of Ned Jackson Photography… Not a single detail was overlooked for Kerry and Steven’s beautiful Boston wedding at the Mandarin Oriental. Kerry’s feathered shoes certainly set the tone for the rest of the day. Kerry and her bridesmaids got ready at the Mandarin Oriental while Steven and his groomsmen got ready in the couple’s beautiful apartment. From there, the ceremony was held in Boston’s North End at St. Lenoard’s Parish. The church, which is sort of tucked inconspicuously on Hanover Street, has one of the most grand ceilings of any church in Boston and provided a stunning backdrop for their vows. The altar was surrounded by beautiful white orchids and calla lilies. From there, the wedding party made a brave stop in Columbus Park in the North End to make the most of the natural light for the group shots despite the cold weather. When guests arrived in the ballroom at the Mandarin, they were not disappointed. White was certainly the theme, from the dance floor to the flowers. Orchids, orchids and more orchids covered every inch of the room. Winston Flowers did a fantastic job of varying the heights and looks of each table, while still keeping a consistent look throughout the room. The room was also lit perfectly by Suzanne B. Lowell Lighting Design. The lighting gave the tables the extra kick and really made the centerpieces pop. The couple’s main cake was decorated with fresh gardenia flowers – so not only did it look delicious, but it smelled fantastic as well. The groom’s cake was an homage to his hockey playing past. Guests finished off the night with mini cappuccinos and left with Boston Coffee Cakes. It was certainly not a bad night to be a guest!
