We loved working with Mia (pronounced Maya) and her now-husband Alex throughout the planning process, and hope the day turned out just as they dreamed. Photos below are from the awesome Leah LaRiccia who, as always, captured the day perfectly and was a pleasure to work with!
While the bride, groom, and their friends and family took photos, we made sure that all of the setup details were going according to plan. The last minute change to move the ceremony inside involved a bit of coordination, but with the help of the fabulous catering team at Cuisine Chez Vous, there was no problem to be found.
While guests arrived for the ceremony, a group of witnesses close to the couple joined them for a Ketubah signing ceremony, led by officiant Rabbi Liza Stern. Once the Jewish marriage document was signed, we put it on display at the ceremony just in time for us to start.
Guests explored the museum during cocktail hour and enjoyed the couple's signature drinks, "Bee's Knees" and a "Dark & Stormy." Just as cocktail hour was ending, Leah gathered all of the guests together and took a group photo from the balcony. That's sure to be a picture that the couple will treasure!
The Nate Bash Band, whose members are from the Berklee community, set the tone for the party with their dance music vibes and introduction of Alex and Mia. The two shared a first dance and a terrific hora dance, with both the bride and groom being lifted in their chairs.
The welcome toasts were given by the bride's parents and the groom's parents before dinner was served. Mia and Alex visited their guests at their tables and then had a chance to hear from a few more toasts, including the bride's sister, the groom's brother, and friends Talia, Alex, and Leila.

Alex and Mia, we wish you all the best on this exciting adventure that you are starting together!
