Almost daily, elegant weddings unfold in the heart of Boston’s stunning historic and modern architecture. At Jodi Raphael Events, we believe that elegance is intrinsic in the venue and the atmosphere curated by the people involved. 

What’s our mission? We aim to turn any wedding venue our clients choose into an enchanted space of elegance, fun, and love; whether a grand ballroom or a rustic cottage barn, the team of full-service wedding planners at Jodi Raphael Events make it happen. Remember, elegance is not just about where you are but the atmosphere you create for yourself and your guests.

Our talented team can transform any space into a haven of elegance. While some may associate elegance with extravagance, true elegance resides in the event design and the subtle details. Here are some examples:

  • Creating Classic Elegance in Luxurious Spaces

For those envisioning a classically elegant wedding, our expertise extends to every aspect of the event. From the floral arrangements to the cocktail table, we understand that certain design elements walk hand in hand with some of Boston’s timeless, luxurious venues

With traditional/classic weddings, the dress code sets the tone. Tuxedos, ball gowns, and three-piece suits exude elegance and refinement. Our advice? Stick to well-appointed fabrics like silk and lace for a polished look. The color palette sets the mood for a classic wedding. Black and white, the epitome of timeless elegance, can be enhanced with pastel tones for a subtle touch of color. Metallic silver or gold accents add a shimmering finish.

When considering elegant florals, roses are the quintessential classic bloom; they evoke a sense of romance. Peonies, hydrangeas, anemones, calla lilies, and hyacinths can complete the classic arrangement. Greenery such as smilax, eucalyptus, dusty miller, and pittosporum add the perfect finishing touch.

For dining, plated meals provide a formal touch, and champagne served in flutes or old-fashioned coupes is a must at the bar. 

  • Elegance Created In Rustic Spaces

We’ve crafted dozens of beautiful rustic weddings at Jodi Raphael Events. Those who believe elegance cannot be achieved in a cottage, barn, or historic tavern have not witnessed what we can accomplish in these spaces! 

The weathered wooden beams and exposed brick walls create a rich texture and add character and authenticity to a wedding venue that is unmistakable. The natural, earthy tones of the venue’s materials, from the aged wood to the worn stone floors, provide a warm and inviting atmosphere for guests, creating an elegant atmosphere in a place not synonymous with the term.

Envision string lights draped along the wooden beams, vintage chandeliers, or even the soft glow of candles in each corner of a beautifully historic Bostonian venue. The magic and elegance of the event are born from embracing the authenticity of the space, making it shine.
