A Modern Garden at Lakeview Pavilion

Fresh white flora romances the chic, modern ballroom at Lakeview Pavilion.

Drawing inspiration from the floral extravagance and cake art of Tracy Morgan’s wedding, Christina and Soraya of S.Y.B Event Planning Services set out to find the perfect venue to accommodate her dream wedding. Her vision came to life the moment she walked through the grand doors of Lakeview Pavilion.

1. Crystal gold-edged chargers atop a mirrored table from Be Our Guest made the couple feel like royalty as they enjoyed their first dinner as husband & wife.

2. An all-white, multi-tiered wedding cake dripping in edible flowers, artfully crafted by Konditor Meister was the perfect end to a perfect day.

3. Each guest table featured a floral pillar surrounded by candlelight, warming each table.

4. Driving off to their honeymoon in classic, vintage style.

5. A traditional Lebanese dance kicked off the festivities.

6. Chiffon draping cloaked the gazebo in chic, elegance evoking a magical garden vibe.

The Magic of Ikebana – Real Wedding

The Japanese art of floral arrangement known as Ikebana was the foundation of design for this modern wedding.

Nicole was inspired by the clean lines of geometric shapes for their modern, sophisticated aesthetic and wanted her floral arrangements to embody that look. The architectural nature of Ikebana spoke to her and with the help of her planner Alexis of Unique Weddings by Alexis she found the florist to bring her vision to life. The couple was married under a Chuppah in front of vast windows overlooking the Boston skyline. Warm candlelight illuminated mini arrangements of tropical flora and cut monstera leaves at each cocktail table on the balcony during cocktail hour, setting the tone of the night. Inside, an infinite mirrored table paired with ghost chairs from Reserve Modern Event Rentals set the stage for tropical leaves that were wrapped and molded into shapes like mini art installations that stretched the length of the table. Guests feasted on a delicious meal before hitting the dance floor to dance the night away.

A Celebration to Remember – Real Weddings

At the beginning of Maggie and Matt’s venue hunt they were told the JFK Presidential Library & Museum wasn’t hosting weddings, but that policy could change in the future. After months of follow-ups Maggie and Matt’s patience and persistence were rewarded; their wedding would be the first ever to be held at this breathtaking and unique venue.

1. A darling embrace overlooking Boston Harbor before returning to their guests.

2. The nine-story glass atrium provided 360 views of the Boston skyline and the sparkling ocean below as guests mingled and sipped cocktails.

3. A simply elegant menu card reveals the feast about to be served.

4. A whimsical bubble umbrella shelters the newlyweds from a light summer sprinkle.

5. Bountiful white flora bloomed from a milky-white vase, greeting guests as they found their table.

6. The team at Designlight transformed Smith Hall into a magical light garden complete with leafy orbs dancing along the walls.

7. Classic meets modern in this ballroom filled with all white décor and floral arrangements.

Magnetizing Beauty at Boston Park Plaza

The alluring grandeur of the ballroom at Boston Park Plaza was a flawless landscape for this classic wedding.

Joanna envisioned a modern twist on the classic all-white wedding. Partnering with Nicole Simeral of Simeral & Co. she was able to make this vision a reality. Joanna’s gown inspired nearly all the design elements. The fitted bodice featured a traditional lace pattern that flowed into a modern geometric organza skirt embroidered with a floral motif. That floral motif was carried throughout the rest of the wedding design from the paper goods to the lighting. The floral pattern was projected onto the white dance floor while guests dined and as soon as it was time to dance the pattern scaled the walls and ceiling, enchanting every guest in the ballroom. Immense silver urns filled with a breathtaking abundance of fresh white flowers and deep greenery evoked polished glamour, completing the overall look of grandeur. “The gray and metallic color scheme of the newly renovated ballroom was an incredible match for the style!” Joanna raved.
