today’s love story:
Brian & Caitlin’s New Years Eve Boston Wedding
and all the magical moments that made it
I’m so excited to feature Brian & Caitlin’s New Years Eve wedding at Royal Sonesta Boston today. I can’t tell you how much we’ve been looking forward to this one. It was perfection from start to finish – from the gorgeous details (wait ’til you see the centerpieces!), to Beantown Band who had the dancefloor PACKED all night long, to the view of the fireworks across the Charles River.
Caitlin looked absolutely stunning in her gown, and her mostly-sister bridesmaids followed suit. One of the most beautiful bridal parties I’ve seen. The guys cleaned up nice too, in their tuxedos. More on their wedding below!
The back of Caitlin’s gown looks like it was made just for her – gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous.
I love Caitlin’s maid-of-honor Kerry’s expression as she stops in her tracks at how beautiful Caitlin looks in her wedding gown.
They shared their first look at the top the winding staircase at Royal Sonesta, overlooking the Charles River & Boston’s skyline.
And then out we went for pictures…we’ve had some brave couples lately! It was maaaaybe 25 degrees outside…
Caitlin was prepared with a fuzzy white bolero, complete with sparkly brooch.
Brian & Caitlin were married at St Brigid’s in Lexington.
Ben captured this beautiful picture of Caitlin’s dad, looking at his oldest daughter just before he walked her down the aisle to be married.
Bagpipes greeted everyone as they left the church, such a great surprise.
Back at the Royal Sonesta Boston, guests mingled at Dante before cocktail hour started. Celeb sighting – Billy Costa was there!
Cocktail hour in the Skyline room (appropriately named!) kicked off just as the first New Years Eve fireworks started at 7:00.
Beyond the silver & black color scheme and beautiful centerpieces by Mahoney’s Garden Center Florists, some of the fun NYE-inspired details included silver clock table numbers and a 2015 sparkler cake topper.
Dinner with a view!
Beantown Band got guests ready for intros, and kept everyone up on the dancefloor until well past the ball drop. So kick back and enjoy the party! Complete with speeches, the sparkler cake cutting, a few tears, but mostly laughs and cah-razy dancing including Brian and the guys teachin the Dougie…
Out comes the bubbly, its almost midnight!
