Ashley and Brian chose the Mandarin Oriental Boston for their recent destination wedding. The couple who live in Nevada hired local Boston designer Eric Czerlonka of Czerlonka Event Design and Management to help bring their vision to life. The ceremony took place at The Cathedral of the Holy Cross followed by cocktail hour in the courtyard of the Mandarin. For the reception, the Oriental Ballroom was transformed by the talented team at the Mandarin, Eric and his team as well as the Marc Hall Design and Suzanne B. Lowell Lighting Design teams.
From Ashley and Brian – “Planning a destination wedding is as exciting as it is complex. The single most important factor in its success is having expert and visionary people on your team who are trained in providing first class service at every entry point. The wedding day was chic and magical in every aspect, from the architectural flowers cascading on the tables to the modern décor. With photos galore, we will always remember stopping traffic on Boylston Street for the perfect shot. Sharing this most special day with our family and friends will hold a lifetime of memories.”
Eric worked with Ashley on helping to bring her vision to life for the reception. “Our goal was to create a room that was modern, sleek and sophisticated with a warm romantic feel. We achieved this be setting the space with a combination of square mirrored tables and 36 foot long rectangular tables covered in custom silk linen. The clean straight lines were softened with shades of white accents. The room was was transformed by the magnificent contrasting tables installations created by Marc Hall Design and Suzanne B. Lowell Lighting Design lit the room perfectly bring all the pieces to life.”
Congratulations again Ashley and Brian and thank you for having us there to capture your beautiful destination wedding day here in New England! A big thank you as well do Donna and the team at the Mandarin, Eric and his team and to all of those who helped make this day so perfect for the newlyweds.
