Seaport Hotel and Mistral Dining Room Wedding: Becky + Duke

Feb 7, 2011 | Weddings

Just over a week ago, I was delighted to join one of my BFFs, Boston wedding photographer extraordinaire Leah Haydock, to second shoot for her at Duke and Becky’s gorgeous winter wedding.  Leah has written a beautiful account of the day, so please see her blog for the write-up (getting ready photos can be found here, the first look here, and more in general here) … Anyway, I’ll keep the text here short and sweet and focus on the pictures.

Becky got ready at the lovely Back Bay Hotel.  The light was gorgeous, just like the bride:

I can’t really explain why I love this next shot … but I do.

This may be my all-time favorite bride-in-a-car image.  Becky was luminous …

The first look was at the ceremony location: the Winter Garden at the Seaport Hotel.  It is THE perfect spot for a winter wedding; the light in there is spectacular!

The flowers by Winston’s were divine.  Love those colors, too:

The ceremony – from a sweet moment between Becky and her dad before they headed down the aisle …

… to the magnificent surprise ending (a surprise for Duke) with BU’s Dear Abbeys singing ‘All You need is Love’.  Love indeed!

The Dear Abbeys are utterly splendid.  🙂

Champagne and canapes at the Seaport …

… then over to the private dining room at Mistral for dinner.  Love this setup!

The food was excellent, and the atmosphere warm (and dark, ha!)

Thank you all so much for letting me tag along with Leah!
