Moonless Night

Thompson Island wedding, Boston, MA. Boston lesbian wedding.

Moonless Night

For Amy and Leigh who live in Florida, their vision was a mystical experience on Thompson Island in Boston Harbor.  The theme of the wedding was Moonless Night.  We sought to capture this theme with ethereal, rustic decor and more candles and candlelight than imaginable! The stationery played off this theme by representing the candles hanging from the trees on the island.

All of the guests came to Boston from around the world for this wedding weekend.  We brought them to the island from downtown Boston by sailboat.  Once on the island, they heard a bagpiper play as the brides and their daughter led the ceremony processional. After the candlit ceremony, guests dined on a four course dinner inspired by the brides' favorite restaurant.  It was a moonless night and it was absolutely perfect.  

Said the brides: "Our wedding was unforgettable and beautiful. Bernadette took our ideas for a once in a lifetime candlelight celebration on a harbor island and made it a reality. From musicians to caterer to lighting designer and florist Bernadette put together an amazing team to pull off our 'moonless night' - thank you thank you thank you!"
