MIT Chapel & Commander’s Mansion BBQ Wedding

August 4, 2014 |  by  |  Weddings  |  Share

I can’t believe this wedding was at the beginning of summer and now it’s already August – which means fall is quickly approaching! But let’s take a step back to May 17, 2014 and reminisce about Julia and Bryan’s laidback wedding day which started with a hair appointment at Davis Hair Salon in Newton, MA. The groom and groomsmen got ready at a vacation home rental in Cohasset, MA and arrived at the MIT Chapel early to greet and usher guests. My assistant, Kelsey, was coordinating the ceremony at MIT Chapel while I headed over to the Commander’s Mansion to start setup with Party Plus Taylor Rentals, New England Country Rentals, Simply Serving, Berman’s Fine Wine, Russo’s, Groove Authority and Blue Ribbon BBQ Catering.

Kelsey assisted in pinning the boutonnieres from Tangerine Creations on the groom and groomsmen at the ceremony. She also worked with the ceremony musician, Josh Nakuzawa, and transportation company, Bloom Bus, on the school bus arrangement for guests. 

Such a sweet and beautiful bride!

The DIY centerpieces were done by the bride’s mother, Ellen, who planted the flower bulbs for the wine bottles. They had Harbor Sweets wedding favors for guest along with their own napkin towel to take home at the end of the night.

Look at those gorgeous NECR farm tables! They can either seat 8 or 10 with 2 chairs on the ends.

Guests enjoyed BBQ ribs, jerk chicken, pulled pork, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, homemade pickles, and cornbread from Blue Ribbon BBQ Catering. To top off the backyard BBQ, they also had classic sweet potato pie, apple and peach cobblers with a side of whipped cream!
