Chrissy and Pete's Wedding at Habitat

Last Saturday, I was the coordinator for Chrissy and Pete's wedding at Habitat in Belmont, MA. Clouds of rain hovered over the wildlife santuary, so the outdoor wedding was moved entirely indoors, into Habitat's gorgeous historic building.

The day started out with hair at Stilisti on Newbury Street in Boston, and then makeup by Dani Wagener at the Westin Waltham Hotel, where the bride got ready along with her bridal party. Chrissy looked incredible in a fitted lace gown, with a small white flower tucked behind her ear.

The bride's bouquet was full of white peonies, and the bridesmaids held bouquets of soft pink peonies. Winston Flowers created the lush bouquets, along with centerpieces, and ceremony aisle decor. Lanterns in various sizes, lit with pillar candles, set the ambience in all of the rooms, and a simple framed escort chart showed guests to their seats.

The catering staff, East Meets West, was amazing to work with during the entire wedding, and guests enjoyed cocktail hour hors d'oeuvres, followed by a three course plated dinner. At the end of the night, guests took home little bags of cookies, which were baked "with love" by the mothers of the bride and groom. The flavors included chocolate chip, ginger snap, kiss cookies, and tea cakes.

Punam of Punam Bean Photography captured the entire day, and thankfully was able to take some portraits of the bride and groom oustide in between the rain showers. I absolutely cannot wait to see her photos (her work is stunning!!), but for now, here are a few that I took of some details.

Chrissy and Pete, thank you so much for allowing me to be part of your special day, and for being so sweet throughout the entire planning process. I hope you are enjoying your honeymoon in Hawaii!
