Boston Wedding Coordination: Jessica and William's Harvard Faculty Club Wedding

On Saturday, June 1st, I coordinated Jessica and William's wedding day at the Harvard Memorial Church and the Harvard Faculty Club.  They both are Harvard alums and it was so special having their wedding on campus.  The bride and bridesmaids had their hair and makeup done by Special Day by Carolina, and they all got ready at the Harvard Faculty Club.  The bridesmaids all wore short purple dresses, and the bride wore a stunning Vera Wang gown with a delicate skirt covered in petals.

The bride and groom opted to do a first look in the afternoon, and they were able to do a lot of their portraits together and with their immediate families prior to the ceremony at Harvard Memorial Church. Their ceremony was short and sweet, and included floral arrangements from The Tangled Web.

Cocktail hour was held on the patio and in the lobby of the Harvard Faculty Club, and guests enjoyed hors d'oeuvres such as lobster arancini, crab cakes, roasted spring lamb, and fresh apple & gorgonzola tarts.  There was a guestbook tree where guests signed their names on leaves, and there was also a mailbox where notes could be written on post cards.

The dining room tables were topped with gorgeous florals from The Tangled Web, along with chocolate favors from L.A. Burdick.  The evening included many toasts, and even some songs, one of which was a surprise re-make of Taylor Swift's "Love Story" that was completely personalized with lyrics related to the bride and groom.  It was so sweet and thoughtful!  Guests enjoyed a dinner of a baby mixed greens salad, and a choice of grilled filet mignon, wild sea bass, or strata.  For dessert, there was a beautiful strawberry chiffon wedding cake from Cakes to Remember, as well as petit fours.

A photobooth from Red Eye Photo Booths got everyone to pose with fun props, and DJ Mike Paganelli from C-Zone Entertainment provided music for the evening.  The photography and cinematography were a dream team of Kelly Dillon Photography and Long Haul Films.  Their work will be coming later, but for now, here are a few photos that I took of some of their details.

Jess and William, thank you so much for allowing me to be part of your incredible day.   I hope you had an amazing honeymoon in Greece!!
