Lisa & Philip married at the beautiful MIT Chapel on Memorial Day weekend. The MIT Chapel, one of our favorite spaces, is just half a mile away from Central Square Florist. The chapel, adorned with Harry Bertoia’s spectacular art dangling from from the skylight, is mostly plain in color. Flowers add a bit of color especially to the photos you will look at for years to come. All photos in this post courtesy of Michael Brook Photography. Thanks for sharing, Michael!
Lisa’s bouquet included a favorite flower among many spring brides: peonies! We used Sarah Bernhardt peonies. Sarah Bernhardt is a popular peony variety. The coloring is a pretty pastel pink and has wonderful double blooms. Plus, to top it all off, they even have fragrance! A seriously perfect peony for a bridal bouquet. See Lisa and her bouquet pictured below. Aside from peonies, the bouquet also included white hydrangeas and both vendella and peekaboo roses.

It was a Jewish wedding so we built a chuppah in the chapel. The chuppah was covered in white sheer fabric and lined with hydrangeas across the top. The upper left and right corners had flower sprays consisting of peonies, hydrangeas, roses and calla lilies. Other chapel decor included hydrangea pews with hanging ribbons attached to the first few rows of seating.
“You may kiss your bride!”

The reception was held at the College Club of Boston on Commonwealth Avenue in Back Bay. The centerpieces consisted of the same flowers used throughout the wedding: peonies, hydrangeas & roses.
Below is an image of the pews repurposed as mantel flowers. The College Club of Boston has a mantel over the fireplace. The pews can be detached off the chairs and put into a vase.

We wish Lisa & Philip a marriage full of love, laughter and happiness. It was a pleasure working with you and your family on your very special day.
