Harvard Club of Boston New Years Eve Wedding of Eliah and Jamie

January 22, 2014

New York City couple Eliah and Jamie met while attending Harvard University. Their love for music brought them together as they traveled the world on a 2004 World Tour as members of The Harvard Krokodiloes.

Eliah and Jamie chose to come back to Boston to celebrate their wedding weekend starting with their rehearsal dinner at Elliot Hall on the Harvard University campus. The wedding ceremony and reception were held the following night on New Years Eve at the Harvard Club of Boston on Commonwealth Ave in the Back Bay.

“Supper with Jamie and Eliah” at Elliot Hall was just the beginning of two days of celebration filled with music. Of the nearly 250 friends and family, almost everyone had a part. Guests preformed original songs for the couple, Broadway hits, guitar and piano solos, duets and toasts throughout the evening. The rehearsal was truly a moving and memorable night that was just a preview of the spectacular wedding the next day.

After getting ready at the Harvard Club, Eliah and Jamie met up with their family and friends for some traditional wedding party photographs in the Massachusetts Room. The spacious warmly lit room and black and white checkered floor made for a great location (and a favorite space at the Club for Eliah).

Guests arrived for the ceremony to a spectacularly decorated Harvard Hall.  A custom birch chuppah by Marc Hall Design sat in the center of the room and was surrounded by chiavari chairs set up in the round with candle light throughout adding warmth of the space. The moving ceremony was filled with music including a quartet and a cappella by the Harvad Kroks who sang from the balcony.

When guests arrived back in Harvard Hall after cocktails in the Massachusetts Room, it had been transformed by Marc and his team. Topiaries topped each guest table and warmth was added with candle light and roaring fireplaces on each end of the hall. Following the newlyweds introduction, a lively hora got the room up on their feet.  Prior to dinner a prayer song was sung by the Krocks and included both Eliah and Jamie.

As soon as dinner concluded, the dancing kicked off with music by Nightshift Entertainment. When the clock struck midnight, Eliah took the stage to preform the classic Frank Sinatra song “New York, New York”. Just before the end of the song, confetti filled the air from the balconies. This was a surprise to guests who joined in the song and celebration.

Congratulations to Eliah and Jamie. We had such a wonderful time capturing your rehearsal dinner and wedding celebration! This was the perfect way to kick off a new year of weddings and events. A big thank you to Nicole Simeral of Simeral & Company for flawless planning and to Jennifer and her team at the Harvard Club of Boston for always being so great to work with. A very happy 2014 to all!
