Sara + Chris: A Mistral Marriage

Throwing their wedding at the trendy and undeniably delicious Le Salon Du Mistral in Boston’s trendy South end, Sara + Chris made sure their wedding was elegant and intimate. Celebrating with close friends and family, they hosted both their ceremony and reception within the walls of Mistral, giving their traditional soiree that little extra twist! I especially love the feeling of how close-knit everyone is – in every photo, S+C’s love and happiness comes bounding forth! Not to mention that Sara looks phenomenal in her cathedral veil and gorgeous Calla Lilly bouquet, which mix wonderfully with their soft purple color scheme. All in all, theirs is a wonderful wedding to behold and I can’t imagine a better way to start off a week than with the inspirations that are Sara + Chris’s: Mistral Marriage. Enjoy everyone!
