While attending Northeastern University in 2010, Arthur Maserjian was heartstruck by Erica Melito's dimples and smile. Two years later, he couldn't shake his unrequited attraction, so he asked her on a date to Cafeteria Boston—"the restaurant, not the school dining hall!" he earnestly clarifies.

The pair eventually became a couple in 2014, just four years before their 2018 engagement in Rome, overlooking the Colosseum. It's no surprise they married 18 months later, as Erica always had a clear vision of her wedding. "Ever since I was a little girl, I dreamed of being married in Boston," she says. "I was sold on Boston Harbor Hotel the moment I saw it."

The four-tier wedding cake was comprised of vanilla chiffon and fresh strawberry filling.

Her favorite moment was when Arthur fulfilled the Jewish tradition of crushing the glass, as it symbolized their cemented union. Afterward, the guests dined on filet mignon and truffle fries amind a serene setting of white flowers and gold-accented decor.
