My last wedding of 2014 is in the bag! Anastasia and Evan hosted their celebration the day after Christmas, to continue the festive holiday day vibes. And although snow may have been absent from Christmas this year, I still really enjoy the warmth and richness a winter wedding creates.
Hospitality families are a blast! Grier is the GM at the Frost Ice Bar in Faneuil Hall, her dad is the GM at the Colonnade Hotel (so naturally everyone got ready there) and Grier’s mom used to be the wedding planner at the Omni Parker House, so when it comes to service, this family knows how to throw a party. Another really neat aspect of Grier and Kevin’s wedding was the music. Bo and Bill, of Winiker Music, kept the party going in November 2014, just as they did at Grier’s parents wedding 20+ years ago! And other than being accosted by security during the first look, they had a pretty flawless day!
This truly was a neighborhood celebration for Adelle and Matt. Their condo overlooks Union Park, where their ceremony took place (thanks to approval from the neighborhood association.) They had their first date at the Buttery (where guests made a pit stop on their walk to the reception.) And Toro, a fabulous tapas restaurant, hosted their family and friends for a Spanish buffet and dancing. A perfectly intimate celebration, for one awesome couple!
Another fabulous wedding designed by LoLo Event Design is in the bag. Allison and Greg live in Florida, but have frequented the Cape for years, so the Chatham Bars Inn was the perfect location to host their out of town guests for the weekend. Several nods were also given to Allison when it comes to her sense of style, and she knocked it out of the park with her dress, a chic, beach appropriate gown, as well as the bridesmaids dresses, love those colors!

Ann and Peter hosted a multi-day celebration (a growing trend) in September, which allowed for an intimate ceremony at the Arnold Arboretum, a Chinese tea ceremony at Hei La Moon, and a reception at the deCordova Museum and Sculpture Park, all without feeling rushed or overwhelmed. And from a photography perspective, there couldn’t have been a more enjoyable way to document these events for Ann and Peter.
