One sentence sum-up of the wedding vibe: Our wedding day was an intimate and non-traditional affair, which celebrated our love for each other, our families, and the city of Boston (where we fell in love).

Other cool stuff we should know about
We incorporated a lot of DIY elements and personal touches such as the paper cranes, which were made by my mom, and the paper flowers, which I made for the cake table. The tablecloth for the cake table was made by a family friend. The silver and linen napkins at the dinner table were my grandmother’s, and I made the menu cards and the origami favor boxes. The table runner was also made by my mom. I really enjoy being creative but rarely have the time for it, and so I was really happy I could do it for my wedding day.
Favorite thing about the wedding
Sharing our vows with each other was a really special moment for both of us. It felt like the world had closed in around us, and it was suddenly just the two of us having one of the most memorable conversations we’ve ever had.
