Boston Public Library Wedding

Photographed by: Ashley & Rich 2016

This beautiful January wedding centered in Boston’s Back Bay and Copley Square. Preparations for the wedding took place right next door to each other, with the bride getting ready at the historic Fairmont Copley Hotel and the groom getting ready next door at the Westin Copley. Two beautiful hotels with two distinct styles; one, elegant and historic and the other modern and new. Coincidentally, each with a view of the reception location, the Boston Public Library, and a short ride to the ceremony at St. Cecilia’s parish. The Fairmont Copley is especially nice for portraits inside the gorgeous hallways and for fun photos outside while waiting for wedding transportation.

ST. CECILIA PARISH

The church, St. Cecilia’s parish, has been a landmark of Boston’s Back Bay for over 125 years. Located on Belvidere St., this parish is known for its beautiful Romanesque architecture, and a reproduction of Da Vinci’s The Last Supper. The bride and groom chose a perfect Boston location for their wedding.  The image with the bag piper leading the recessional is a favorite image that shows off this church.

THE BOSTON PUBLIC LIBRARY

With all it’s unique locations, the bride and groom really wanted to spend some time around the city of Boston before the reception. With plenty of time in between the ceremony and reception, we were able to the mall on Comm Ave, where the lights were hung for the holidays, and Fenway Park, which is always a fan favorite. However the true stunner of a location is the Boston Public LibraryThe Catered Affair effortlessly transforms this historic space from bustling city building to an elegant wedding venue. The wedding reception took place in Bates Hall for Dinner and The Abbey Room for dancing. We were able to get some portraits in the Courtyard as well.
