A Walk of a Lifetime at the Fairmont Copley Plaza, Boston
By Suzanne Scharff
Boston, a culturally rich and vibrant city is also commonly known as the “walking city.” The Fairmont Copley Plaza, a historical beauty over 100 years old and a member of the Historic Hotels of America, proves to be a dazzling venue to take another promenade – your momentous walk-down the aisle. The Grande Dame of Copley Square in Boston’s Back Bay holds courts over the landmark center with its palatial limestone structure blending French and Venetian architectural elements while its equally striking interior offers a decidedly luxurious setting for celebrating nuptials and honeymoons.
