Influencer Insight: Weddings at The Langham
Influencer Insight is a segment where we speak with a local Boston influencer who is an expert on a certain topic—this month we caught up with @baddiedae on her wedding at The Langham, Boston!
Daena Jeanne Antonelli, or @baddiedae as she is known on Instagram, shares eating, drinking, workout and other lifestyle tips with her followers online and she and her husband held their wedding reception at The Langham, Boston just over a year ago. Daena and her husband Brian chose to have an intimate ceremony with only their close family a few months prior to their reception. Once they landed on The Langham for their party, they expanded the guest list to include their large extended families and many friends. With over 120 guests, BOND restaurant | lounge and the Wyeth room offered the perfect venue for their celebration!
Why did you choose The Langham for your wedding reception?
The Langham has always had a special place in our hearts because it was where we had one of our first dates and we both just fell in love with the property. And once we knew we wanted to have a city wedding with all our friends and family it was a no-brainer to go with The Langham.
Where did you take your wedding photos?
Since The Langham has such a prime location in Downtown Boston, we were able to get some amazing shots before the party started. Our favorites were in Norman B. Leventhal Park just across from the hotel and in front with the Langham Pink London taxi. We wanted a sophisticated, modern look and thanks to The Langham we were able to achieve just that.
Describe your wedding for us!
Guests were welcomed by a beautiful mirror with handwritten names of each guest indicating what table they were seated. And then they walked up the staircase to what was formerly BOND restaurant | lounge, which was lit with dozens of flickering candles. The whole restaurant was transformed into a chic, urban wedding scape. The modern centerpieces and shimmering linens highlighted the glam atmosphere of BOND. Guests enjoyed a signature meal and of course lots of cocktails and dancing!
Daena and Brian were the last wedding to be held in BOND before we began our renovation. In order to continue giving couples the amazing feeling that @baddiedae had on her wedding day, we are refreshing our historic hotel to create moments worthy of once-in-a-lifetime fêtes. From five-star dining options to luxurious tablescapes and décor, we are excited to see many future Langham couples celebrate their nuptials with us! We can’t wait to share the new wedding experiences we have planned for every couple so those special days can be just as memorable as Daena and Brian’s! Stay tuned!
