The State Room Boston | 6.22.2013

The State Room is definitely an iconic Boston wedding venue with all of its stunning elements. From its floating staircase to the enormous glass wall with its unparalleled view of the city – it is nothing short of the perfect setting for an elegant evening.

The Couple

Michelle and Chris, a dream bride and groom. Undeniably one of the nicest and most beautiful couples inside and out that we have ever worked with!

Getting Ready

Their day starts at The Ames Hotel where Chris and his guys were getting ready…. Great photos by our girl Erin!
