A luxurious wedding at the Mandarin Oriental in Boston, MA


Last summer, Jay spotted Aly at their building’s gym, and they started talking. Jay called up his buddy and told him that he might have met the woman he was going to marry that day. They found that they were absolutely perfect for each other - silly, loving, competitive, fitness buffs, and surprisingly, lovers of paint nights and cooking classes spent together. Being the math nerds they are, Jay proposed in the gym’s yoga room on March 14th, otherwise known as Pi Day. Just like the number Pi, their love is infinite #awww

They decided to get married right across from their building at the Mandarin Oriental Boston - you could even see into their gym from the ceremony on the terrace! Aly slipped on a blinged out pair of Converse Chuck Taylors over her Vera Wang dress. She wore her grandmother’s ring, and the two stood under her grandfather’s chuppah. Being the non-traditional couple they are, Aly was instructed to tap on Jay’s shoulder for the first look. She instead licked his ear 😂 They both had a blast throughout the night - reciting their vows as Aly’s brother married them, snuggling Jay’s family’s dogs, Huck and Finn, munching on dozens of appetizers at cocktail hour, and dancing the Horah surrounded by everyone they love!

Thank you to the amazing vendors!

A Fourth of July wedding at Willowdale Estate in Topsfield, MA


Erika & Charles met in high school over a decade ago on a double date - but not with each other. They went to separate colleges, wishing each other the occasional “Happy Birthday” on Facebook. As fate would have it, though, they met once again as classmates in grad school in Pennsylvania in 2016. They quickly became friends, and took a chance on each other - and they’re so glad they did!

Charles popped the question at Acadia National Park, and they both marvel at the fact that it took them so many miles and so many years to find each other, even though they grew up 15 minutes from each other. Erika picked out the perfect beach for their engagement photos at Crane Beach in Ipswich (peep their gorgeous sunrise photos here!) and celebrated their big day not too far away on the Fourth of July at Willowdale Estate in Topsfield, MA.

They had a perfectly sunny day complete with a wild and energetic wedding party, photos of all their world travels together, American and Korean traditions blending together seamlessly, and an ice cream sundae bar to put the cherry on top of their perfect day. Congrats #teamcherika!!!

Thank you to all the amazing vendors!
