Real Wedding: Elyse + Adam in Boston

I always have a soft spot for Boston weddings. Photographed by DMPJ by Glen Cooper, Elyse and Adam were married last September at the Royal Sonesta Hotel in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The couple mixed the clean, modern lines of the venue with softer, vintage details to create their perfect setting. A few words from the bride:

“We wanted our day to feel like ‘us’, contemporary and fun with lots of romantic touches. Since it was love at first sight for Adam and I when we met at JFK airport on our way to Israel for a trip sponsored by the Birthright Foundation, we wanted to create an atmosphere that celebrated our unique love story while honoring the family and friends we love so much. We had a gorgeous backdrop to work with – the Royal Sonesta Hotel, situated on the Charles River in Cambridge, Massachusetts. It had everything we were looking for – a unique collection of modern art throughout an open and bright space, with spectacular views of Charles River sunsets and the lights of the Boston skyline. Our inspiration for the day was to combine the clean lines and modern decor of our venue with vintage touches reminiscent of our favorite Parisian-styled cafe in Philadelphia, a place where we have spent many lazy Sunday afternoons admiring the gilt antiques, delicate mirrors and beaded chandeliers. Vintage grey mercury glass votives, vases, sconces and candle holders of different shapes and sizes were scattered throughout the space. Centerpieces of yellow and white hydrangea and roses were balanced with icy grey dusty miller. One of the most special features of the day was a collection of antique picture frames featuring multiple generations of family wedding photos. The vintage mirrors and candles placed on the table with the photos played tribute to the history that the pictures represent. Adam and I created a monogram (e+a) that we used on most of our paper products – menu cards, wedding programs and welcome bag letters – to make them our own. All in all our day was perfect. The sun sparkled for our photos on the Charles River and it set against the backdrop of a clear sky and full moon as we said our vows. People who attended the wedding have told us that the whole day felt like a fairy tale – we couldn’t agree more!”
