Iffy and Jason’s wedding was unusual and beautiful.
Our violin/cello duo provided prelude, ceremony and cocktail hour music. Imam Dr. Talal Eid of the Islamic Institute of Boston officiated. He explained to the guests at the beginning of the ceremony that since two cultures were being united, he would say each section in Arabic and then again in English.
The Oval Room, always a beautiful setting for weddings, was further enhanced by Iffy’s decision to bring in a lighting specialist to illuminate the walls. She chose blue for the ceremony and had the lights moved to the ballroom for the reception where the color was changed to coral and orange.
The Oval Room’s excellent acoustics made it possible for everyone to hear us even though we we’re only a duo, however, with 250 guests, I think a trio would have worked a little better once we moved to the ballroom.
I love working at the Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel. Event coordinator Tracy Gavin really knows how to make a wedding run smoothly. I’ve always had good experiences working with her and the hotel staff couldn’t be nicer or more helpful.
