Don’t miss the full gallery for more of Angelina Rose Photography‘s exquisite images.


From Angelina Rose PhotographyErin & Brian were married on one of the most beautiful Saturdays in May at Heritage Museums & Gardens in Sandwich, MA. A sweet, sentimental couple, a tear came to Brian’s eye upon seeing Erin for the first time that afternoon on the rolling green field at Heritage. The gardens were in full bloom and created the perfect backdrop for the couple. Erin & Brian were surrounded by friends and family as they pledged their love in front of the cascading waterfall above the lily ponds at Heritage. Erin & Brian brought out the importance of tradition, family and love through centerpieces by Abigail from Designer’s Touch that were built into antiques handed down by Erin & Brian’s families featuring a vintage feel and soft blush, peach and grey palette.

For a change of scenery, cocktails & delicious hors d’oeuvres were served in the two-story antique barn where the exhibit of model cars throughout the ages stood out against the exposed wood of the Automobile Gallery. Guests found their seating arrangements on the beautifully hand painted shutters that Erin refinished; one of the many details that were created by the bride.

Across from the Round Barn, dinner was kicked off by DJ Cubey and warm words from Erin & Brian and the genuine sentiments continued through the Maid of Honor & Best Man. The room was on it’s feet with glowing smiles on their faces and warmth in their hearts. The lights dimmed following dinner and guests were on their feet again, dancing into the night with cupcakes in hand! Dizzy with the joy of the day, Erin & Brian stole a moment to themselves to end the evening with an intimate kiss below the twinkling lights at Heritage Museums & Gardens.

Cocktail Class + Shrub Syrup Recipe

Up until recently, I hadn’t heard of shrub syrup. And then the darling Lauren Wells came into my life and taught me the error of my ways. Because, as it turns out, they infuse an instant hit of delicious into your every day bevvy. And we’re about to take a peek at the loveliest cocktail class to date, with a bonus recipe from Flask & Funnel and lots of stunning photos from our beloved Cambria Grace!

From Lauren Wells Events … I had the pleasure of designing and styling a cocktail class, led by the talented Andrew of Flask & Funnel. The workshop took place at one of the most charming shops in Boston’s South End – Farm & Fable. Abby (the owner) is one of those people who instantly makes you feel like a friend, and we were so grateful to make use of her beautiful space.

Contrary to popular belief, this class was not about plants. It was about vinegar-based fruit syrups, ideal for cocktails and other beverages. Everyone had a blast learning, sipping, shrubbing and tasting, and we have provided the basic shrub DIY below. Big thanks to Cambria Grace Photography for capturing the evening as well!

Chic Boston Public Library Wedding

The Boston Public Library is a venue unlike any other. With its rich tradition, stunning architecture, and fabulous location – it’s a must see if you are ever in the Boston area. But it also happens to be one ridiculously amazing place to host a wedding. With the help of The Catered Affair, this globe-trotting couple tied the knot there in serious style, and thanks to Ned Jackson Photography we can see every picture perfect moment of this chic Boston wedding here.


From the Bride…Jay and I got engaged in Paris in June of 2012. We had been together for 5 years and had been living together in Amsterdam in The Netherlands with our dog, Desmond, both working and enjoying the European lifestyle. The trip to Paris was our last European excursion before moving back home to Boston. It couldn’t have been a more fitting engagement—inside our Parisian apartment rental, balcony doors open, Wilco on the ipod dock, a cheese plate and wine on the table, and Desmond our dog sitting obediently next to Jay as he knelt down with the ring (from Antwerp).

When we got home to Boston, we looked around at venues and were convinced that we wanted an outdoor, tented affair on the coast of Maine. We initially wanted Maine because we first met in Portland. We met at a bar and made small talk before realizing that we were from bordering towns in Massachusetts and had gone to the same small college in New York (we missed being there at the same time by one year).

We were still touring waterside venues in Maine when we stopped in at the library in Copley Square. I’d always loved the Boston Public Library after having done some research there years before, so I wanted to check it out just for the sake of doing our due diligence. When we saw the library together, we were both enchanted, despite the fact that neither of us had imagined a cosmopolitan wedding. Our instincts immediately won over. I am an English teacher and we are both lovers of literature and art and the grandiosity and European style of the building charmed us immensely.

Our coordinator at the library, Eliza, of The Catered Affair, was a perfect match for us. She had already looked at my “Pinterest” boards when we first met and had a great sense of my style. The library is so rich with art and ornate designs already, I knew our decorations would have to be somewhat simple without being boring. Because Jay and I had spent the past two years traveling around Europe with our dog, we really wanted to incorporate the idea of the rich cultural heritages we had sampled into our design. Eliza and the rest of our vendors helped up facilitate this with ease. Our tables were named after the many cities we visited together, our photo booth had maps and suitcases as props, bar signs featured “Cheers” in the languages we were immersed in, our signature cocktails were Italian and Dutch respectively, and we had table runners made from cut up maps.

After over a year of planning, September 28, 2013 finally arrived and we were lucky enough to have a beautifully sunny, crisp fall day. Our photographer and videographer were both warm and fun to be around and all the preparations felt natural and easy. Eliza and her team had thought of everything and the night ran as smoothly as could be. Guests came in from all over the state, country, and even from abroad. A group of the High School students I taught came to see me in Copley Square before I went into the library. Desmond the dog walked down the aisle before me, my bike from Amsterdam held our ceremony programs in its basket, the detailing from my mother’s wedding dress was wrapped around my bouquet, and it was truly a celebration of our relationship and all the people and places we cherish most.
