As a Boston Wedding Photographer, I believe that weddings are not just about perfect weather, they are about perfect moments. This was certainly true for Shane and Jessica’s wedding at the Boston State Room, a day that turned out to be one of the rainiest of June. Yet, with the expert planning of Mandy from Hummingbird Events and my role as their photographer, we created a day that was not only smooth-running but also filled with beautiful, joyous moments.

Boston State Room: A Venue of Urban Elegance

The Boston State Room, a prestigious Longwood venue, stands as a beacon of modern elegance and style in the heart of the city. With its breathtaking views of Boston’s skyline and sophisticated interior, it provided the perfect urban setting for Shane and Jessica’s wedding. The State Room is known for its unique blend of chic design and warm, inviting atmosphere, making it an ideal backdrop for capturing memorable wedding photos.



Overcoming the Rain: A Day of Joy and Laughter

Despite the rain, Shane and Jessica’s spirits remained undampened. The indoor spaces of the State Room, with floor-to-ceiling windows, offered a magnificent view of the rainy cityscape, adding a romantic and cozy ambiance to their ceremony and reception. The rain outside brought a unique charm to the day, making the moments captured even more special.

Seamless Planning by Hummingbird Events

Mandy from Hummingbird Events played a pivotal role in ensuring the day went smoothly. Her impeccable planning and coordination allowed us to navigate the rainy weather without any stress. Her expertise in crafting a timeline that balanced photo sessions with celebration time ensured that Shane and Jessica, along with their guests, enjoyed every moment to the fullest.






Capturing the Day: Alex Gordias Photography

As their photographer, my goal was to capture the one-of-a-kind Shane and Jessica’s love story against the stunning backdrop of the Boston State Room. The challenge of the rain only added to the creativity of the shoot, allowing me to capture intimate, heartwarming moments that might have otherwise been overlooked. The result was a collection of photos that not only told the story of their day but also encapsulated the emotion and beauty of their journey together.


Conclusion: A Day to Remember at the Boston State Room

Shane and Jessica’s Boston State Room Wedding was a testament to the fact that love shines brightest even on the rainiest days. Their celebration was a blend of urban sophistication, heartfelt moments, and joyous celebration, all seamlessly woven together by the efforts of the Hummingbird Events and captured forever in the beautiful photographs by Alex Gordias.
