Miriam and Austin’s October wedding at Avenir featured vibrant colors, beautiful details, and overwhelming happiness. They incorporated their cultures and unique personal touches into every moment of their wedding day, from live music and traditional dance to a tarot-reading table!
From the Bride and Groom:
“We met freshman year of college in 2016 at Emerson College. Austin and I were next-door neighbors in our dorm building and became fast friends. We were long-distance for a while throughout graduate school, though Austin eventually moved back to Boston. He proposed in the Seaport in December 2021.
After getting engaged, we knew that we wanted a fall wedding. We loved the deep green/terracotta color schemes. Our bridesmaids wore Juniper dresses from David’s Bridal. Our groomsmen wore tuxedos from Men’s Wearhouse.
We knew we wanted to get married in the Boston area. We looked for a venue that had both an outdoor and indoor space, as well as a comprehensive wedding package to reduce some of the stress of wedding planning. We really appreciated all that Avenir offered, particularly our wedding coordinator.
One special DIY project was our place cards. I used sliced agate crystals and personalized each one with our guests’ names. Agate brings about positivity and balance, and we thought it was perfect to have throughout our wedding. We also had evil eyes placed in our florals for protection and positive energy. We also had a traditional Lebanese zaffeh entrance which we were SO excited for.
We loved working with Saphire Event Group. Everyone was so responsive and dedicated to making our wedding day perfect. Our coordinator, Sydney, answered all our questions and made sure our day was flawless.”
If you had to give a piece of wedding planning advice to a newly engaged couple, what would it be?
“Our biggest piece of advice is spreadsheets, spreadsheets, spreadsheets! Planning becomes a lot less stressful if you’re keeping everything organized and detailed from day one.”
Miriam and Austin’s best marriage advice:
Love your partner in their love language, not just yours.
