Lauren & Dan were married this past October at the Multicultural Arts Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Every bride wants to add their special, unique touch to their wedding day, and this couple certainly did a great job!
Their day started with a First Look at North Point Park overlooking the Boston skyline. From there, the wedding day just got better & better! An outside ceremony at the Multicultural Arts Center was breathe taking, surrounded with beautiful architecture.
Everything about this event focused on this couples passionate towards sustainability. Almost everything could be re-used, re-purposed or recycled! Here’s a great quote from Land Escapes Design, which provided most of the decor for the event.
“Here Comes The Bride” Our Forward Thinking, Eco-Minded Bride wanted a sustainable bouquet. Wooden flowers, Air plants & Succulents. We used cropped succulents throughout the wedding leaving enough of the stem and root stock so they can easily be regrown. Thank you Lauren & Dan for such a wonderful opportunity to create such a unique bouquet.

Inside the venue, the tables were decorated with a tasteful & meaningful collection of family heirlooms and unique antiques. This was such a fantastic idea and had the guests talking and chatting about the history of their heirlooms! What a great idea to truly make your reception “your own”.
