State Room Boston Wedding with Jodi Raphael Events

February 21, 2022

If I had to describe Tahleen and Declan’s wedding in a few words – it would easily be “Smiles” – “Laughter” – and “Fun!”. I’ve known Tahleen from her years of planning in the Boston wedding industry and was so excited she asked me to capture the wedding day for her and Declan. I knew going into the day that it would be a great experience but within 2 mins in the room for getting ready, I knew it would be a blast! The day was filled with confetti, sweet moments (like Tahleen’s grandmother helping with the veil on the way into the church), traditional Armenian dancing,  beautiful decor, and those stunning State Room views!

From the bride: “From the time we got engaged, we knew we wanted to have a city wedding since Boston is where we have created our home together! After working in the event planning industry and at a multitude of different venues, from the time I stepped foot in the State Room and saw the stunning 2 story floor to ceiling windows with the most magnificent view of the city, I knew that was where we would want to celebrate our marriage with our family and friends. We wanted everything to feel soft, romantic, and above all, FUN! It was the most incredible day filled with so much love and happiness and beyond everything I had dreamed of.”
