Boston Public Library Summer Wedding

Boston Public Library

Established in 1848, Boston Public Library was the first large municipal library in the United States. Boston Public Library offers one of the most historic and unique event venues in the city. They accommodate a variety of captivating spaces that offers an ideal setting for special events like weddings. We were able to experience the magic that Boston Public Library had to offer through Ashley and Marco’s wedding!

The bride had an arrangement of white and light blush peonies for her bouquet which had depth and texture through the use of multiple lush blooms with a white and blush colorway. She had white freesia and cream spray roses that were placed in her hair that looked stunning with her wedding dress. The groom’s boutonniere had an elegant touch of a single white ranunculus with a rosemary accent that was wrapped in a black satin ribbon. The bridesmaids all held blush roses with infusions of silver-green dusty miller that were wrapped with a silver ribbon to flatter their darker grey dresses. The ceremony for these two love birds where held in one of Boston Public Library‘s beautiful outdoor courtyard with its gorgeous bacchante and infant faun fountain in the middle of it. The space that was in front of the fountain, which was the backdrop for where the vows had taken place, was complimented with traditional white urns that were filled with white hydrangeas, white, cream & champagne roses on each corners of the cascading water fountain. After exchanging their vows, the bride and groom had their first dance.

Inside the library, the reception was held in Bates Hall where the rectangular tables were lined with centerpieces that were ornate mercury glass vessels in different sizes that held arrangements of white hydrangeas, white, cream & champagne roses, white cream spray roses, white lisantuis, olive greens, seeded eucalyptus & dusty miller. The tablescape had depth and texture through the use of multiple vessels, with natural, lush blooms and greens. It looked amazing with the books from the library that the bride handpicked and placed throughout the tables. Congratulations again to Ashley & Marco, it was an exquisite vision to be a part of especially in the heart of Boston!
