Both alums of the Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), Mike & Mary chose the perfect venue for their wedding that would celebrate their love of science, computers and technology: The Boston Museum of Science. To kick off the day, both bride and groom got ready at nearby Hotel Marlowe, one of my favorite boutique hotels in Boston
Beautiful bride Mary in her flowy wedding dress…
…On another floor, Mike and the guys prepared for the bridal reveal:
In the girls’ room, music was blasting. In the guys’ room, the football was on
Finally, the bride and groom saw each other….
Fit for royalty in the Hotel Marlowe lobby:
After a few photos inside the hotel, we headed out to Lechmere Canal Park and the Cambridge Parkway for some formal photos…
There were already glimpses of the beautiful fall foliage along the canal.
After we finished up the formal photos, everyone headed to the gorgeous St. Catherine’s church in Somerville for the ceremony.
And Mike & Mary were married
After the ceremony, everyone headed back to Cambridge for the reception at the Museum of Science:
The cocktail hour was held in the New England Habitats Exhibit Room:
I stole the bride and groom away for a few more formals at the Museum. Here they are in the Skyline Room, with the sunset and Boston skyline behind them:
And outside on the terrace in the dusky light
We made a quick stop outside and ran into this scary T-Rex! Mary & Mike do a pretty solid impression
Then we made a final stop at the Archimedean Excogitation. a.k.a. the impressive Audiokinetic Sculpture in the lower level of the Museum.
Then it was time for the party to start! In keeping with their science theme, the couple created a seating chart that mimicked the Periodic Table of Elements – loved it!
Each table had it’s own subject area of Science and accompanying centerpieces…so creative!
Probably my favorite thing of all, was the robots…two fuzzy stuffed robots at their sweetheart table, and a totally awesome Robot Bride & Groom (& Cat) cake-topper!
The couple was introduced for the first time as husband and wife!
Some very funny and heartfelt toasts by the bride’s sister and the groom’s brother:
And cake cutting!
Then it was time to party! I was waiting for the “Domo Arigato, Mr Roboto” song to come on, but I must have missed it
A final pic of the WPI gang with the bride and groom….
Congrats Mary & Mike on your “out of this world” wedding! All the best to you both
