A Bright, Modern Wedding at the Boston Harbor Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts

With the help of Tangorra Wedding Planning, Ashley and Matthew Pisapia planned a modern wedding at the Boston Harbor Hotel with a bright color palette of purple, pink, orange and blue hues. With its enviable waterfront location in the heart of Boston, the hotel offered a beautiful backdrop for the couple’s nuptials, while also putting guests within walking distance to some of the area’s landmarks and must-see spots. The couple made their out-of-town guests feel right at home, greeting them with welcome bags filled with local treats and a list of activities, restaurants and area attractions upon arrival. The wedding kicked off with a ceremony in the Harbor Hotel’s Wharf Room, where Ashley and Matthew exchanged heartfelt vows against floor-to-ceiling windows that gave way to views of the harbor's calm waters and passing sailboats. Cocktail hour was held in the Rotunda, followed by a laid-back reception back in the Wharf Room. Wanting guests to mix, mingle and have a good time, the couple decided to ditch the traditional sit down dinner and went for a cocktail-lounge vibe, having Cort Furniture Rental fill the space with modern vignettes and a mix of tall and low tables. Bunches of bright purple and pink blooms added a burst of fresh color to the space, while suspended floral display introduced a modern edge to the decor. Ashley and Matthew served up an array of hearty passed hors d’oeuvres, in addition to stations dishing out everything from pizza to sliders and shrimp cocktail. Dessert was just as unexpected, with a dessert station packed with treats like fruit, ice cream and cupcakes taking the place of traditional wedding cake. And after the pair’s first dance to Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud,” the band Men in Black took to the stage, churning out a set list of upbeat hits that kept the dance floor packed all night long.
