Boston Public Library Wedding Venue
Built in 1848, the Boston Public Library was the first large free municipal library in the United States. The Boston Public Library’s first building of its own was a former schoolhouse located on Mason Street that was opened to the public on March 20, 1854. The library’s collections approximated a mere 16,000 volumes. – BPL History
Now known as one of the most infamous libraries in the United States, it also accommodates events and weddings!
The Bride and Groom
There is nothing (in our opinion) quite as magical as the holiday season – unless of course you are Carolyn and Doug and have a December 27th wedding! Don’t let the date fool you though, the temperature was a far cry from a typical Boston December day… low 50’s! While getting ready at the Lenox Hotel, the bridesmaids were given fabulous handmade shawls and gloves accompanied by Uggs. Alas, we are sure they wore them daily in January and February! Even though the temperatures weren’t what we had hoped for, the city still had that holiday season charm from the white lights to the decorated Christmas trees.
When we arrived for the ceremony at St. Mary’s in Charlestown, it was almost as if you had walked into a poinsettia palace. Simply breathtaking. After witnessing a heartfelt display of love from the bride and groom, it was off to the Boston Public Library to celebrate! If you have never experienced the Boston Public Library you HAVE to put it on your bucket list. But honestly, nothing compares to attending a wedding in the BPL. Absolutely stunning. But don’t take my word for it – take a look for yourself.
