Royal Sonesta Boston Wedding - Jess & Tyler
You may recognize these two from their ENGAGEMENT SESSION a couple posts back at the Boston Public Garden and Beacon Hill! I was so excited to hang out with them again and shoot their wedding at the Royal Sonesta in Boston!
Jess & Tyler are such sweethearts, and I've truly loved getting to know them over the process of them planning their wedding- from being obsessive cat-parents (I was surprised they didn't make a guest appearance!), to the fact that they watch Twin Peaks (I sense a binge-watching party on the horizon.) Jess's Maid of honor even mentioned during her speech that Jess has a way of making everyone feel like they're her best friend. I couldn't agree more- every time I see her pop into my inbox, I know there's an enthusiastic, cheerful message waiting for me :)
The day started off with the guys and girls getting ready in separate suites at the ROYAL SONESTA BOSTON (which is technically in Cambridge, but has the most awesome view of the Back Bay skyline.) It was pretty low key- the girls rocked out to lil' Wayne while sipping champagne, and the guys drank scotch straight out of the bottle. ;)
Then we hopped onto the iconic OLD TOWN TROLLEY to head to the MARSH CHAPEL at BU where Jess & Tyler had their first look! There were beautiful stone arches and lots of greenery around, which made for a gorgeous classic backdrop for photos.
After the ceremony, we headed to the reception at RESTAURANT DANTE in the Royal Sonesta- one of the best Italian restaurants in Boston. I grew up in a household where the neighborhood Italian place is referred to simply as "the restaurant", so I'm no stranger to Italian food- and everything they served at Dante was SO GOOD.
Not surprisingly, they're currently spending their honeymoon in Italy! Can't wait for them to see the photos when they get back!
