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.

Upon first glance, I was captivated by these beautiful blooms in Kim Le’s photo shoot, but looking a little closer and my adoration turned to awe. These pretty petals are made of paper courtesy of Handmade by Sara, adding the perfect touch to this bridal shower bash by ME Weddings. With Kacee Geoffroy making our models shine and 24 Carrots gracing the tables, this is one soiree I’d be happy to get comfortable at.

From Kim Le PhotographyIn collaboration with ME Weddings and Morning Lavender Boutique, we wanted to come up with a bridal shower inspired look that matched the sweetness of spring, the romance of weddings and the joy of bridal showers.

Inspired by soft tulle, romantic lace and spring colors from Morning Lavender’s recent collection of feminine dresses and skirts, the theme and decor for this bridal shower shoot is just as sweet, classy and stylish. From hair and makeup to jewelry and petite cakes, everything about this bridal shower is the perfect mix of feminine style and bridal shower bliss. The shoot is adorned completely with paper flowers from Handmade by Sara Kim in the gorgeous garden setting of Franciscan Gardens. Accenting the soft and romantic theme of the shoot, we added stunning vintage furniture pieces by Etablir Shop, beautiful plates and glassware by Dish Wish and finishing touches of ribbon, lace and gold throughout.

We also wanted to show that girls just wanna have fun by adding inspiration for creative ideas like a whiskey bar cart and a DIY paper flower station.

From Facibeni FotografiaTuscany is widely recognized for its hills, for historical cities and great food. A few know the Versilia coast, in northern Tuscany, and its beautiful towns. Protected by the Alps on one side and the sea on the other, Versilia is a favorite destination for summer vacations in Tuscany since the ’60s. A long 30 km road separates the bathing resorts from cities full of boutiques, art, and good food. The wedding of this beautiful couple was organized in Pietrasanta, a small but lively town rich in art and craft shops, art galleries and taverns with local products. The center of Pietrasanta is the Piazza del Duomo, where is the great cathedral, completely covered with marble outside and painted with frescoes inside.

Alessandra and Massimiliano, like many other Italian couples, chose a religious ceremony in a small church and the reception at the nearby beach, inside a beach resort. After the ceremony, guests moved to the seashore for a cocktail made with sparkling wine and fresh seafood. After that, an excellent dinner prepared right at the beginning of the beach, under the stars with the sound of the sea in the background. The bride was looking for an elegant wedding. She wore a simple and dress and a long veil. The weather, as often in this area, was sunny and breezy; guests have enjoyed a romantic sunset on the sea. Enjoy!

From Il Bianco E Il RosaAlessandra and Massimiliano got in touch with me four months prior to their wedding day. They had already booked the church and the venue for the receptions. They were looking for the most suitable vendors for their French-style wedding on the beach in Tuscany. Alessandra and Massimiliano have good taste and, thank to this, were not easy to please. They were looking for a classic but chic ceremony in the church. Given the short time available and the many things to do before the wedding, I got started on it right away.

The theme they chose was “Ladurèe” – the proposal took place in Paris, on February 14th, at the 58 Restaurant on the Eiffel tower. I immediately got in touch with Facibeni Fotografia for wedding photography, as I knew they would have been perfect on this occasion. One of the photographers, Cristiano, is a master in collecting the finest details from a wedding.

The ceremony took place into the stunning Pieve di Valdicastello in Pietrasanta, and was followed by the reception in a luxurious beach resort in Forte dei Marmi. The guests enjoyed canapes on the beach before sit for dinner on the side of the beautiful swimming pool. Fireworks over the see lighted up the night. The music, played by a band that came from South of Italy for the occasion, highlighted the cake cutting, in front of many elegant and thrilled guests.

From Faith Teasley PhotographySerene beauty and striking colors for days. The natural elements of Rattlesnake Lake, a hidden gem in the Pacific Northwest, created the perfect color scheme for this springtime wedding inspiration. Combined with film photography, a gorgeous gown by Claire Pettibone, and talented team of vendors, we were able to bring this vision to life. It’s true: there is beauty in simplicity.

Sweet Rustic Spring Bloom Wedding Inspiration

Sometimes pretty inspiration comes in the form of boat loads of details, and sometimes, it’s as simple as a stunning dress, a splash of colorful blooms and a serene setting—the exact vision that Jake AndersonFlorescere and a&be bridal had when crafting this raw, yet soft shoot driven by a spring sunset palette. Dreamy? Without a doubt.

From Jake AndersonIn the Midwest, the winter months are spent reflecting and pondering the colors of summer, and dreaming the fragrance of fresh foliage. John of Florescere has an incredible ability of creating raw and natural floral pieces which exude authenticity and creativity; we wanted to pull those nuances into the revelation of spring. Our location was chosen specifically, as the harsh and raw characteristics juxtaposed the newness and vibrance of the arrangements beautifully. The colors are suggestive to a spring sunset, and paired with the green foliage, brings the viewer to understanding that these arrangements are for an organic setting.
