An Elegant, Traditional Wedding With Spring Flair at the Langham Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts

Rebecca Goldberg (28 and a product manager) and Jonathan Arias (31 and a product manager) planned an elegant spring affair at the Langham Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts, to celebrate their nuptials. Wanting a day that celebrated the spring season and embodied old-world opulence, the couple filled the day with a soft pastel palette, rich in shades of mint, gold, ivory and blush, as well as arrangements of lush romantic blooms. “We wanted to celebrate the brightness that a spring wedding embodies, but we also wanted to make it a formal event,” Rebecca says. The Langham Hotel—the formal Federal Reserve Bank of Boston—provided the ultimate backdrop for the affair, with its lavish 1920s Renaissance Revival building and location in the heart of the city. From the menu showcasing cuisine from all over the world to the narrative table numbers and playful dachshund salt and pepper shakers, every detail spoke to Rebecca and Jonathan’s story, personalities and backgrounds. The couple also put their personal mark on the day by writing their own vows, having family members do the readings during their ceremony and incorporating family heirlooms, like Rebecca’s great-grandmother's and grandmother’s wedding ring, into traditions like the exchanging of rings. The Mozart Academy and ECF Entertainment set the tone for their evening with their sets of sophisticated and upbeat tunes, while a prop-filled photo booth kept guests entertained. “It really takes effort from a lot of people to achieve your vision; we were lucky to have so many great people to work with,” Rebecca says. “The results speak for themselves.”
