A Boston Wedding With a Nod to Greek Tradition at the State Room
Venue | The State Room - Boston, MA
We’re so excited to share I + J’s glamorous wedding at Saint Demetrios in Weston followed by the wedding reception at the State Room. Incorporating many Greek traditions, the couple made their wedding day truly special.
We wanted to start off with the ceremony captured perfectly by Natalya DeSena Photography. Here you’ll see all the brilliant colors from the Greek Orthodox church. Marital crowns worn by the couple symbolize the union between the two individuals.
The celebratory exit from the church with a petal toss was a wonderful send off for their traditional ceremony.
The bride and groom rode in a gorgeous antique car.
The bride and groom then traveled to Post Office Square in their antique car. The photos of I + J at the Norman Leventhal Park in Boston, Massachusetts created a green oasis for the two that allowed for a lovely private moment for the couple.
Everyone looked their very best with gorgeous hair and makeup performed by My Big Hair Day and Nic B Make Up. The bridal party coordinated with the blush tone of the bridesmaids’ dresses and groom and groomsmens’ ties.
Walking along the cobblestone streets of downtown Boston there were perfect picturesque moments. Including these few minutes in front of the famous marketplace, Faneuil Hall.
Boston skyline views from the State Room are always incredible. Just steps away from the waterfront.
With bistro lights strung and champagne poured in flutes the State Room was ready and waiting for the guests to arrive. We loved the tabletop details of their gold flatware provided by Sparrow Lane, along with their iced table numbers among the beautiful peachy florals from Beach Plum Floral.
The sweetheart table was lit up beautifully with pillar candles and framed with florals.
Bride and groom being toasted, so much fun with love and laughter.
And here the bride and groom sharing their first dance.
Family and guests joined the couple on the dance floor for the wedding dollar dance. This is a playful dance between the couple where guests will throw money as a way to give good fortune to the newlyweds. Then came the traditional Greek sirtaki dance, circling the dance floor arm to arm.
The Power Station certainly kept everyone on the dance floor and entertained. It was such a celebratory evening!
The cake was a scrumptious caramel macchiato flavor by the State Room. This was cut by the bride and groom to "I Can't Help Myself".
Boubounieres boxes were given to guests as favors. This is another traditional Greek custom as a symbol of life.
