Planning a Boston Wedding

Boston is a city filled with American history, present day energy, and more hometown pride than anyone can shake a stick at. But amidst the piles of seafood, first-rate art collections and museums, and brownstone buildings is another section of Boston’s appeal worth noting: the city’s capacity to host one beautiful wedding. And from venues to cake shops, we’ve pulled together some of the best local vendors around to help you get started planning your special day. Here are a few of our favorites.

Boston Wedding Venues

Whether you really, truly, just love Boston, or you really, truly, just love a good wedding venue, we think there’s a good chance the Boston Public Library fits the bill. The library’s central courtyard is an incredible ceremony site with stone work, columns, and a bubbling fountain right in its midst, and also doubles as a perfect place to host cocktail hour. An indoor reception means high ceilings, more columns, and an ideal combination of Bostonian tradition and wedding elegance.

Wedding Photographers in Boston

On your wedding day, you want a photographer you respect, enjoy, and trust working with you to capture the special moments that are sure to pop up. We think that Shane of Shane Godfrey Photography is completely capable of doing just that. A photographer who enjoys working with weddings because they combine his love of people and images in a way that no other type does, Shane seeks to reduce stress and put you at ease – along with taking incredible photos.

Wedding Cakes in Boston

We really love wedding cakes. Honestly, what’s not to love? The tiers, the filled layers, the smooth frosting and elaborate decorations – it’s all so conveniently easy to adore. Which is why we’re big fans of Something Sweet by Michelle, a bakery nationally recognized for its cake design. For non-traditional takes on the dessert table, we also like Sadie Mae’s Cupcake Café which features flavors galore with gluten free and vegan options, too.

P.S. Don’t forget to use the best planning tools around – our wedding websites are perfect for communicating with your guests and sharing the details of your wedding day and registry.
