A romantic Boston City Hall + Public Garden + Custom House wedding




Six years ago, Sarah and Drew met at the Northeastern University law school, specifically 92 Cargill. It’s where Drew sat Sarah down and told him he loved her. Sarah was midway through peeling an orange and had to go cry in the hallway for a second and collect herself, but she knew he was the best gift the world would ever send her way. After dating for half a decade, Drew created a map of all their special spots where they shared memories in the city. One summer night, they walked from one to the next – beginning at the law school, tracing their old running loop along the Charles across the Mass Ave and Longfellow bridges, through Beacon Hill for some pizza (where Sarah used to live) and ending on one knee at the Public Garden.

So when it came to getting married, it had to be Boston. Sarah walked from the Custom House Hotel to City Hall escorted by her brother for an epic first look with Drew. They love the inside of City Hall – it’s an acquired taste, but Sarah was “into old file cabinets,” so the aesthetic fit perfectly. They had a quick and emotional ceremony, exchanged rings, and IT WAS OFFICIAL! We scooted off to the Public Garden where we watched geese sliding around on the semi-iced over pond and enjoyed the beautiful light and the refreshing breeze through the willow trees. Next stop: Sarah’s old apartment in Beacon Hill. They love the vintage elevator, so we all crammed in to hit the roof deck, catch some views, and for Sarah & Drew, walk down memory lane. The last adventure of the day was at the Custom House Hotel, where the observatory was closed for renovation that week, but their honeymoon suite balcony was even more epic. They got a 50 degree, sunny November wedding – perfect in every single way.
