A beautiful Jewish Wedding on Boston Harbor  

Anna and Josh opted for a beautiful traditional Jewish wedding at the elegant Boston Marriott Long Wharf, perfectly situated between Boston's North End and the Boston Harbor. Their day began with each of them getting ready in their hotel suites, which boasted stunning views of the harbor and city. Then, they shared a heartfelt first look by the water, followed by a romantic portrait session in Columbus Park. The evening continued back at the hotel, where they signed the ketubah at sunset, exchanged vows under the huppah, and celebrated into the night. It was truly an unforgettable evening.

Signing the ketubah in the Midnight Lounge

A pivotal moment in the traditional Jewish ceremony is the signing of the ketubah, a cherished tradition that occurs under the chuppah, nestled between the erusin and nissuin. This sacred act is witnessed by friends or distant relatives, a gesture seen as a great honor, while close relatives traditionally observe from a distance. The couple chose to hold this significant ceremony in the intimate setting of the Midnight Lounge at the Boston Marriott Long Wharf Hotel, enveloped in an atmosphere of love and solemnity.

An intimate Traditional Jewish Wedding in the Palm Garden Atrium

Anna and Josh exchanged their vows in the stunning Palm Garden Atrium of the Boston Marriott Long Wharf Hotel, a breathtaking space that extends through all the hotel floors, yet maintains an intimate ambiance. Their ceremony was beautifully traditional, taking place under a Chuppah. It included heartfelt vows, sipping from the Yiddish cup, a tender first kiss, and the symbolic breaking of the glass, all enveloped in the atrium's enchanting atmosphere.
