The Four Seasons Boston is a perfect venue for couples who are looking for a classic, elegant, traditionally beautiful wedding. Their location right in the heart of the Back Bay makes it easily accessible to so many great churches, and a quick walk across the street puts you in the Boston Public Garden! Jennifer and Dustin celebrated on the last weekend of Spring and we had a wonderful time capturing the day.
The color palette of the wedding was classic white, with soft touches of pink accented throughout. Jennifer looked stunning in a strapless mermaid gown, with silver beading at the waist. Her bouquet was pink peonies and roses, and we loved her pink Valentino heels to match! The bridesmaids wore strapless blue dresses, with white and green floral bouquets.
Jennifer wanted to incorporate her love of bows and gave each of the bridesmaids a Tiffany & Co Silver Bow Ribbon necklace. As Dustin was opening his gift from Jen (an antique clock similar to the one her parents received on their wedding day), Jen received a gorgeous pair of Tiffany Pearl earrings from the Groom. As a surprise for her wedding shower, Jen received a necklace made from one of her grandmothers old rings from her mom and dad that completed her look.
The ceremony took place at the nearby Arlington Street Church. Columbine Floral Design created two beautiful arrangements placed on either side of the church’s altar, matching Jen’s bouquet.
As soon as the ceremony was over, we walked down the street with the happy newlyweds to take pictures in the Boston Public Garden with their bridal party and family. We could not have asked for better weather to capture these outdoor formals with Jennifer, Dustin and their wonderful family before heading back to the Four Seasons Boston for the reception.
While guests and the bridal party enjoyed cocktails in the Aujourd’hui Room, we had the time to take a few more pictures of Jennifer and Dustin on the Four Season’s elegant grand staircase.
We LOVED Jen’s reaction when the Hopple Popple and Four Seasons team gave the couple a sneak peak at the ballroom (newly renovated)! Silver linens topped the tables, with softly veiled silver ballroom chairs around each. The beautiful floral centerpieces were filled with white roses, pink peonies, and hanging white orchids. The 5-tiered white wedding cake was decorated with cascading white flowers, and displayed Jennifer + Dustin’s custom monogram. The same monogram was projected with light onto the white dance floor, adding a personal touch to this classically elegant wedding reception.
Guests were ready to eat, drink and dance the night away to celebrate this wonderful couple! Bartenders served two signature cocktails named after the couple’s dogs — “The Maggie” and “The Lilly”. After speeches, formal dances, and the cutting of the cake, the dance floor was opened for the rest of the evening. As well as a traditional dessert station at the end of the night, guests enjoyed individually wrapped Bride and Groom cookies to take home with them.
We had such a blast celebrating this day with Jennifer + Dustin. Special thanks to ladies of Hopple Popple for such a beautiful event as always, and the entire team at the Four Seasons Boston. Congratulations Jennifer + Dustin!
