Salem Waterfront Wedding

Most Massachusites know that Salem is SO much more than the witches we learned about in grade school. It’s boating and sunsets and culture all wrapped up into one incredible little town. And when you layer in a beautiful wedding – with subtle nautical details, a couple that is all style and photos from Zac Wolf – onto the already lovely backdrop, well Salem simply gets even more lovely.

From the bride..My husband Anthony and I didn’t have a set place we wanted to have our wedding. Once we started touring venues, we decided that having an outdoor wedding on the water in historical Salem, MA made the most sense for us. We both love nautical style and historic New England, so Salem was the perfect spot for our wedding.

We didn’t really have a wedding theme, but we tried to include dots, stripes, and anchors into as many details as we could, without over doing it. From the striped ribbons on the flowers, to the dotted stripes on our invitations, to the anchor socks the groomsmen wore, we successfully showcased our love for nautical style. The Salem Waterfront Hotel and Marina was a perfect venue to show off these details. We were fortunate to have the first outdoor wedding at the venue and we’re so glad we got to take advantage of the beautiful backdrop of the wharf on our big day.

We can’t say enough about Zac Wolf’s photos from our wedding day. We wanted him to capture our day from a candid point of view that showed our genuine reactions throughout the day rather than just having traditionally posed photos. He did exactly that and gave us some unbelievable images that we’ll have forever to look back and remember our special day.

After months of planning our wedding day was beautiful. The ceremony was short, but incorporated some of our favorite music and the reception was a great party. We spent the whole night on the dance floor with our families and friends, which was exactly how we wanted to celebrate becoming Mr. and Mrs.

Boston Inspiration Shoot at 9ofs

When prettiness dreamt up by some of our favorite vendors lands in our lap, we get just a tad bit excited. So this Boston chic shoot at 9ofs from Petal Floral DesignTrue Event and Paper Moss has us doing a serious happy dance. Captured by Hello Love Photography every single image sitting in this gallery is gorgeous and then some. See it all here.

From 9ofsOpened in 2012, 9OFS is a spectacular indoor/outdoor event space located in the heart of Boston’s financial district. The newly-renovated open-air garden, complemented by a reflection pool, provides a unique perspective of the Boston skyline and calm contrast to the bustling energy of the city below. The interior space of 9OFS is modern and sleek, offering an attractive backdrop for any event.

9OFS is located on the ninth floor of One Federal Street in Boston and is only steps away from the newly constructed Boston Waterfront, Faneuil Hall Marketplace and many other attractions. It also has excellent accessibility to all of the major highways and public transportation.

Visitors can overlook and be inspired by the dynamic daytime cityscape, dramatic sunsets and nighttime sparkle of city life. With a flexible layout and awe-inspiring views, the possibilities for 9OFS are limitless.

From True Event…For the design we wanted the table to feel modern and chic yet elegant and timeless. Set on the rooftop in downtown Boston this new venue created the perfect backdrop for our city shoot. We used a palette of deep plums, peaches, lilac and creamy whites and gold and silver. Using mirrored chargers and lucite chairs we brought in a few modern details and combined them with the mix of metallics, fine china, glassware and copper flatware to create an elegant tablescape.

From Paper Moss…We wanted the paper goods to incorporate some of our absolute favorite stationery trends of late, but with a timeless feel. Working with Larry Orlando Calligraphy, we paired bold hand lettering with a romantic gold foil printed emblem and gold painted edges. This pairing resulted in a modern, yet playful elegance. For the “day of” accessories, we played off of mixed typography & patterns… and we just couldn’t resist using round menus to make the table settings pop!

Colorful DIY Wedding

There’s a reason we love colorful DIY weddings, and that reason is simple: they are awesome.  Especially when those DIY details are wrapped up in a gorgeous Overbrook House setting with a sweet whimsical vibe, yummy treats from Crema Cafe (the bride!) and one pair of crazy cool green shoes.  See it all captured by Zac Wolf in the here.

From Zac Wolf Photography… Jake, Gwen and their families spent the week preparing for their Overbrook House wedding, decorating and filling the venue with the gorgeous details. Their families came in from the midwest and filled the venue with love, delicious treats from Gwen’s bakery Creama Cafe, and amazing homemade details.
