The Exchange Conference Center in Boston’s Historic Seaport District was the perfect venue for Jess and Adam’s spring wedding. It was important to Jess and Adam to have a city wedding and photos that show off the landscape of the place they call home! This laid-back and fun couple met in January of 2020. They survived Covid and the pandemic together just shortly after dating and they have been inseparable ever since!
Unique Boston Seaport Wedding
Jess and Adam each got ready in the Seaport — Jess at the Seaport Hotel and Adam on-site at The Exchange. They both knew what a production a wedding day can sometimes turn into, so with some thoughtful planning, we made sure their day felt natural and relaxed. Jess had her two sisters as bridesmaids and Adam’s two best friends were his groomsmen. With a large group of friends from high school and Boston College, they chose to keep their wedding party small and incorporate their friends in different ways.
Before the ceremony, Jess and Adam shared a private first look, nestled into a quiet city park nearby where they got ready. They shared private vows with one another in the park before we went back to meet their friend group for a trolley ride to Fan Pier Park. The views of the Boston skyline at Fan Pier Park is always a highlight! It was a beautiful day so there were cheers from passersby and perfectly timed sailboats in the distance of the Harbor. We captured portraits with family, friends, and the happy couple!
The Exchange Conference Center Wedding
The group then returned to The Exchange Conference Center for the ceremony! With our second photographer, we were able to capture key ceremony moments from a few different angles. I especially love the second-story vantage point of Jess making her way down the aisle with both of her parents, as well as her and Adam’s first kiss from above!
It was only fitting for Island Creek Oysters to be present for cocktail hour at this Boston Harbor venue. The dory boat oyster display was a huge hit with all of their family and friends. After drinks on the terrace, Jess and Adam were introduced into the ballroom and shared their first dance to kick off the reception. The evening was filled with toasts and dinner, before an incredible sunset and a night of dancing! Congratulations to Jess and Adam!
