Erin and Eliahu are both amazingly talented musicians who have ruled the Boston music scene, and having both come from musical families, it’s no wonder that music played such a big role in their wedding day. Erin celebrated her Scottish heritage by walking down the aisle while a bagpiper lead the way. Eliahu’s family (Mom, Dad and both brothers) composed a beautiful song for them during dinner, and the bridal party was one excited musician after another.
Erin started her wedding planning journey by saying “I just want a simple, rustic wedding.” But throughout the wedding planning process, as we brainstormed unique ways to celebrate their families, friends, heritages and journey together, her wedding day evolved into a beautiful tapestry of inside stories, history, and a deep respect for each family’s roots. Even the escort cards were “backstage passes” that told the story of each guest’s relationship to the bride and groom.
This wedding, held at the Essex Conference Center, took place on one of the most beautiful days of the year. The bride and groom were married next to a pond under a rustic, homemade chuppah, decorated with in-season, local flowers from Gordon’s. They ate fresh, New England ice cream and homemade pies for dessert, danced the night away, and partied until the wee hours, singing songs around the campfire. Guests even had the opportunity to enjoy the famous Ipswich Tap Truck!
