Lori and Drew's
Wedding at the Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel in Boston

Fairmont Copley Boston Wedding

Lori and Drew got married the week before Christmas at one of Boston’s historic churches, King’s Chapel, built when Massachusetts was still a colony of England. They had their reception at the grand dame of Back Bay hotels, the Fairmont Copley Plaza. But in between their ceremony and a party at a 4 star hotel, they did something I’ve never seen another couple do, and I’m going to let you scroll down to discover it for yourself.

The Sail Loft is the sort of small bar where the other patrons didn’t think twice about a wedding couple stopping in for a quick bite. That’s probably why Lori and Drew like it so much.

Hey, if you’re planning a Christmas-time wedding, you should totally steal this idea from Lori and Drew. This is such a great way to remember your guests and their well-wishes!

Normally, this is my last image in a blog post, but remember I told you that Lori and Drew did something I never saw. It wasn’t the chowder, though that was pretty unique.

Drew in his tuxedo, and Lori in her gown, stopped at the waterfront on a cold December night, to see if the fish were biting.

Awesome, right?

I’m not sure if the chefs at the Fairmont would have cooked up anything Lori and Drew caught, but the cold night air drove them back to their wedding before that issue became relevant.

Thanks for looking all the way to the bottom of the post. As you can see, Lori and Drew had a great wedding. Everyone was very nice to Lucia and I, and we certainly appreciated your patience. And, the Fairmont Copley Plaza looked beautiful decorated for Christmas.
