Library weddings…they get me every time, And Jessica and Jamie’s Boston wedding did not fail! For this traditional Jewish wedding celebration, the detailed planning by Rafanelli Events and stunning photos by Nathan Smith and Angi Welsch for Ira Lippke Studios perfectly suited the Boston Public Library. It’s never looked better!

The Wedding: 5.27.12 – Boston Public Library – Boston, MA
What three adjectives best describe your wedding? Elegant, Intimate, Personalized
What was your wedding color palette? Green and White
What inspired your personal wedding style, and how did you incorporate your style and personalities into your big day? Our style is sophisticated, but restrained. Our wedding events incorporated traditional Jewish rituals without feeling formulaic.
Looking back, what are the moments, decisions or memories that you love the most about your wedding? Jen Chan at Rafanelli Events went above and beyond to make our wedding day perfect. She took care of every detail and really took the time to get to know us as a couple. The end result was a ceremony and reception that truly felt like our very own, from the wedding programs to the hora.

This is gorgeous, I love weddings!
Wow! Love the reception hall/library. What a great place to have a wedding!
What a gorgeous idea to have a wedding in a library! The photographs of the flower girls are so precious. The overall setting creates a timelessness to the couple’s love. Overall a truly stunning evening. Congratulations Jessica and Jamie!
Loved the whole thing…but especially the donut bar!
I never thought that I will look at a library in a different way. The structure just made the wedding more nostalgic and the bride and groom looked really comfortable with each other and they seem to enjoy the atmosphere!
Such a beautiful and unique wedding! xo http://www.PlumPrettySugar.blogspot.com
The pictures are beautiful! I’m looking into having a wedding at Boston Public Library, but i’m concerned about parking and finding a reasonably priced hotel in Boston. Do you know what the bride and groom did, and if so, would they recommend it? Thanks!
