Elegant Boston Park Plaza Wedding – Anthony & Scott

October 20, 2015

When Anthony and Scott contacted me about photographing their wedding at the Boston Park Plaza, I knew immediately that it was going to be beautiful. We met at the venue and did a mini walk through, seeing all the rooms for getting ready, ceremony, and reception, I got even more excited. On the day of their wedding, after the grooms and the wedding party finished getting ready, we headed over to the Boston Public Garden for some portraits. It was a short walk from the Park Plaza hotel. It was a quiet Saturday at the Public Garden because everyone thought it was going to rain, but lucky for us, it held off. I was so happy to create some wedding photos at the Boston Public Garden without a lot of people in the background.

Here’s a little snippet about Anthony and Scott I snatched from their wedding website:

“Anthony and Scott met in the summer of 2012. They share an interest of traveling, softball, great food, partying and other hobbies. Anthony enjoys hiking, biking, and other outdoor activities while Scott enjoys gambling, writing and reading. On their second date Anthony asked Scott if he’d like to go for a hike in the Blue Hills and Scott willingly said he would love to spend time in the great outdoors, so he didn’t seem like a curmudgeon. Three years later, they are much more honest with each other.”

Here’s a fun fact: “On the first date at a quiet bar at the Ritz Carlton, they were having martinis and Anthony got up to use the restroom and loudly announced “Oh and by the way, if you are going to ruffee me, it takes two!”

Another fun fact: “They once traveled to Charlotte, North Carolina to see an aviation museum and when the flight back to Boston was delayed, they decided to fly to Las Vegas and showed up at Caesars Palace with no luggage.”

We used the Georgian Ballroom for their wedding ceremony. It was a spacious room that could accommodate up to 500 guests, which was the perfect size for Anthony and Scott’s wedding.

The reception room at the Boston Park Plaza was gorgeous. We used the Plaza Ballroom, which was a bigger room, compared to the Georgian Ballroom. The theater curtain, the uplighting, the chandeliers; it was extravagant.

The hora dance was really fun to photograph. They both had a blast. (Did you see Scott’s hand was on that guy’s face?)

I had an amazing time photographing their  wedding at the Boston Park Plaza. This wouldn’t have been possible without Anthony and Scott being incredibly awesome from the beginning to end of the day. I loved working with them. If you know anyone who’s engaged and looking for a wedding photographer, please get in touch.
