Meg & Joe // An elegant Boston Public Library wedding

"I see trees of green, red roses too, I see them bloom for me and you...

And I think to myself... what a wonderful world."

At 5:30pm, the doors to the Boston Public Library reopened for a very special event: Meg & Joe’s wedding. Meg & Joe would land on the more quiet side of the spectrum, and their wedding reflected the elegance of their love without frivolity - because who needs flowers when you have a Renaissance style “palace for the people” built in 1895 in the heart of Boston filled with French antique marble?

As dusk fell, beautiful magenta uplighting illuminated the courtyard as their guests settled into their seats. Meg & Joe read their own vows, promising to always support one another and to never jump ahead in their Netflix queue alone. They said, “I do” and joined their guests for a rousing cocktail hour in the courtyard. Dinner was served in the Guastavino Room, with dancing and dessert in the epic mural-covered Abbey Room upstairs. The grandiose European architecture in the library served as the perfect backdrop for these lovers of learning, and the live band serenaded everyone past midnight.

Meg & Joe, may your new life together be filled with adventures to every corner of the globe, lazy Sunday snuggles with your pup, and a lifetime of love and happiness.

Thank you to the wonderful vendors!
