Danielle and Daniel – October 10, 2015


Danielle and Daniel were married in downtown Boston on October 10, 2015.  Their ceremony and reception were held at The State Room located on the 33rd floor of 60 State Street.  This was my first Boston wedding and these guys definitely made me felt at home with their elegant New England celebration.

Danielle and Daniel were connected to me by Danielle’s Maid of Honor Lindsay Simon who was the Maid of Honor and sister to one of my brides from 2014 (thanks so much Lindsay – and what’s up Corey and Jamie!).  Danielle and Daniel hired me for Day-of Wedding Coordination and WPP Lead Planner Katie Whitney to coordinate their rehearsal the day before.  Katie lives in the Boston area and is not only my sister-in-law but also my very first WPP assistant so she was the perfect fit to team up with for this event.

Anyone who knows this couple knows that they are two of the funniest people out there.  And for those of you reading this who don’t personally know them all you have to do is look through these photos to see what a laugh fest their whole day was.  Even during the ceremony they had their Rabbi cracking up – Katie and I had a hard time keeping it together ourselves.  Danielle and Daniel have such love for one another and their appreciation for good comedy is one element that keeps them so well connected.  

There were so many fun details and fun moments throughout this wedding!  Here is a rundown of just a few highlights –
I absolutely loved Danielle’s dress and she looked stunning in it.
This wedding gave me my first encounter with Uber (we don’t have Uber in Albany – yet) and Danielle was my first bride to be chauffeured to her wedding by an Uber driver.
The view from the event space windows was unbelievable (although sadly I am far too afraid of heights to get all that close to the glass).
I don’t think I have ever seen a groom look so genuinely moved by the first sight of his bride.  Daniel you are making every other groom look bad!
And that cake – gasp!  So so gorgeous!

Weddings like this come together with the help of a team of wedding professionals, and I had such a great time meeting and working with these Boston-area vendors.  First I have to give a major shout out to Channing Johnson who photographed this wedding and so kindly shared all of these images with me.  Channing I so appreciate your easy style and your images are amazing!  Katie and I were assisted by Cindy Goodman at The State Room who was so fun and such a pleasure to work with.  Cindy I hope we see you again soon!  Sweet Tooth and the Sugarbabies was the band and they killed it!  The party was so fun that Danielle and Daniel extended the band so they could dance a little more.  New Leaf Flores did all of the beautiful bouquets and centerpieces, McElroy Weddings provided videography service, a team from Charlotte Phinney did all the girls’ hair while Karla Patricia and team from Swoone Beauty did all the makeup, Rabbi Al Axelrad officiated the ceremony, and that totally amazing cake was made by Dessert Works.

Thank you Danielle and Daniel for bringing Katie and I on to your team for this major moment in your lives.  You guys were one of the best couples we have ever worked with and you certainly brought enough humor to keep everyone entertained throughout the day.  I wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness and hope that our paths cross again some day!

xoxo,

Shannon
