A Casual, Modern Wedding at Taj Boston in Boston, Massachusetts

Nicole Dunn (29 and a project manager) and Nicolas Dunn (33 and an attorney) loved the spacious modern and traditional environment at the Taj Boston hotel. Casey Durgin Photography captured the entire wedding from the church ceremony at the Paulist Center to the dance-filled reception at the Taj Boston. "We had 100 guests at our wedding and we were having a hard time finding a space that wouldn't swallow us up," Nicole says. "This was perfect." Wanting to keep their wedding fashions reflective of their laid-back relationship, Nicole and Nicolas opted for casual attire. Nicole wore a Jenny Yoo strapless, silk dress with a sweetheart neckline. "My favorite part was that it had pockets," she says. She even wore beautiful Vera Wang flats featuring jeweled accents that added a touch of elegance to her look. Because of the hot summer wedding date, many of the flowers Nicole and Nicolas planned for were unavailable the week of the wedding. "However," Nicole says, "that certainly didn't ruin the day." The modern-styled reception featured white, round tables with high and low centerpieces of yellow roses and white hydrangeas. "I wanted things streamlined and clean," Nicole says, "a little more on the modern side." Many of Nicole and Nicolas' wedding guests had to travel for the celebration, so they wanted to make their wedding a weekend-long event. "It was really important for us to spend as much time with everyone who traveled to be a part of our weekend," Nicole says.
