Hadar + Michael’s gorgeous summer wedding on the south shore combined cultures, traditions, and families into one amazing celebration. They both share Jewish faith and live in Boston, but Michael also wanted to stay true to his hometown of Miami. With guests coming from all over the world, they wanted to tie together all the threads of their heritage and backgrounds into a cohesive and super fun wedding weekend in Boston.
Why Deering Events? Hadar + Michael live in Boston, which has no shortage of wedding venues and vendors. Michael was studying for his med school boards throughout their engagement, a daunting process that left little time for guesswork and shopping around to a zillion florists, venues, and caterers. Our Full Service option was a perfect fit for Hadar + Michael’s busy lives. They hired us 12 months from their wedding day, and we helped them find a venue, establish and stick to a budget, coordinate the wedding weekend events, strategize and execute all the design elements, and more.
The Vision: Hadar + Michael wanted their wedding to reflect a gorgeous New England summer. Hadar chose a bright sangria color for bridesmaid dresses, and the florals created by The Tangled Web were bright and bold, yet still feminine. We incorporated touches of glam gold elements into their invitations and decor. Their venue was The Villa at Saphire Events – a space that’s chic and formal, but never stuffy. The weather was perfect, so we were able to do an outdoor ceremony with a floral-adorned Chuppah.
The Vibe: Hadar + Michael had a lot of meaningful elements that they wanted incorporate into their wedding. Their Jewish faith is really important to them and their families, so they did a ketubah signing at the ceremony and the horah at the reception. Hadar also did the Jewish tradition of circling her groom seven times at the altar. At the reception, Hadar + Michael had a choreographed dance that reflected both Michael’s Miami roots and their shared faith. It was such a fun start to an awesome dance party. Hadar’s dad built an incredible backdrop for the sweetheart table – it was such a nice personal touch.
Since Hadar + Michael had so many out-of-town guests, they were keen on making sure everyone experienced the best a Boston summer has to offer. With welcome drinks, a post-wedding brunch, and a host of suggested things to do, their guests felt welcomed and ready for a mini New England vacation.
Local Flavor: At Deering Events, we love incorporating local food, wine, and beer into events. For Hadar + Michael’s wedding, we did New England maple syrup for favors. Michael is majorly into craft beers, so we included local craft brews on the bar menu.
Our Favorite Moments: Hadar’s “first look” with her dad was so sweet – everyone was tearing up. We loved all the various cultural traditions incorporated into the wedding – Hadar + Michael had the most beautiful Ketubah we’ve ever seen! Most of all, seeing all their guests from across the world come together for such a special weekend was the icing on the cake.
The Team: The Villa at Saphire Event Group is a really versatile venue: it has all sorts of different event spaces all in one location, and Saphire Event Group has a number of venues across Boston’s south shore. Photographer Arielle Photo captured so many special moments!
