Danielle + Mark

LOVE BLOSSOMS IN BOSTON

A New York-based couple returns to its roots

In the fall of 2007, Danielle (of Astoria, New York) and Mark (of Salem, New Hampshire) met at Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. Nine years later—on September 24, 2016—they made their union official. The couple wanted to get married in the place their relationship began, and they chose Hotel Marlowe for its “beautiful location, unique character and décor, and an exemplary staff” who had them hooked from the get-go. After the picture-perfect festivities, the newlyweds spent the night in the hotel’s stunning Presidential Suite.” They then honeymooned in South Africa (in Cape Town, on a safari adventure, and on the island of Mauritius) before beginning life as a married couple back in New York.

Memorable Details

Danielle’s father Roberto walked her down an aisle that was lined with vines and candles; during the ceremony, the couple stood beneath an arch of vines and roses. The couple was married by William Luzier, Justice of the Peace. Instead of a unity candle, they combined glass from two separate containers (Danielle’s glass was blue and white to represent the Yankees; Mark’s was red and blue for the Red Sox). Afterward, the container was shipped back to Fiamma D’Amore, a company that blew the glass into one gorgeous vase.

They had their ‘first look’ outside the hotel, near the river, before taking more photos in the beautiful Boston Public Gardens.

After the ceremony had come to a close, the couple exited the room as joyful guests waived ribbons adorned with bells. During both the ceremony and cocktail hour, a string trio from Berkley College of Music (Boston) played some of the duo’s favorite songs.

For the reception, everyone enjoyed an “amazing” dinner in the Ballroom without music or dancing. The menu included salad, gnocchi in a tomato sauce, and main course options of Statler chicken, filet mignon, or salmon prepared in a tasty lemon sauce. The dessert table featured a delicious creation from Icing on the Cake (a sweet company based in Newton, Massachusetts).
