Ally & Kevin

Our hearts are just making their way back down to earth! We have been doing nothing but reflecting on Ally and Kevin's happiness since their wedding day, and how memorable the night was; not a step was missed, and what an incredible evening - a big thanks to you TED! 

Ted, you are amazing! Your ideas were inspirational, and your attention to detail, stellar. You captured Ally's (and Cathy's) vision perfectly. When we walking into the room it was breathtaking, the beauty of it all was awesome, and all we could think of was, "let's not open the banquet doors, until we can take in all the beauty the room had to display." The floral arrangements were stunning, the tablecloths and the table settings were elegant, the lighting magical, and the white dance floor made the room look heavenly. WOW!!!!!

Ted, with every call or meeting we had, you were sensible, calming, organized, creative, and most of all, trustworthy. Your reccomendations were so helpful, your design sense was impeccable and the team's execution was flawless! Everthing ran on time, and you were always, behind the scenes to ensure it was perfect in every way.

Evan & Andrew

 

On a picture-perfect day, Evan and Andrew celebrated their wedding. And the weather was just the icing on the cake. The day was beautiful in every way. Evan’s laughter with her friends before the ceremony; the groomsmen all trying to figure out how to tie the bowties; the dress, the shoes, the flowers and Evan’s amazing smile; the warmth of the ceremony itself; even the unexpected, but necessary, stop at Brooks Brothers to pick up one more bowtie before the ceremony. Everything was personal, loving perfection.
Just take a look for yourself….

Caroline & Patrick

Words cannot describe how grateful we are to the entire Boston Harbor Hotel team, and especially you, for making our wedding such a magical experience for us and our guests. Everyone at the BHH touched us with not only their professionalism but also their utter kindness. From the food to the service, we could not be more appreciative.

I know that planning a wedding with an indecisive, out-of-state bride was certainly not the easiest task, and I want to thank you so sincerely for your patience and guidance through the whole process.

We have been the recipients of great generosity and support as a couple. Please know you hold a special place in our hearts for helping to create such a joyful celebration.

For all of your time and effort, thank you!

Warmly,

Patrick and Caroline

Mother of the Bride

Words cannot do justice to the gratitude that we feel in our hearts towards you and your five star team! Simply saying thank you for your flawless execution of this entire weekend seems inadequate. I can say without any hesitation that every single aspect of this event, starting on Wednesday through the last moment of our departure on Sunday, was utter perfection and a resounding success!

Cortney, my mother has always told me that I am an excellent judge of character. From the moment I met you I knew we were in the hands of the consummate professional. Your gentle demeanor is the perfect compliment to your laudable organizational skills and exactly what we all needed to allow us to enjoy this special occasion worry free. As I watched you scurry around, you reminded me of an orchestra conductor; someone who goes unnoticed but without whom nothing would be possible.

I honestly do not think that we could have found a more beautiful venue for the wedding. The beautiful setting combined with the perfect weather (thank you for taking care of that as well!) enveloped all of us in the magic of the evening. 

Again, thank you for patiently working with all of us and helping fulfill a lifelong dream of celebrating our daughter's marriage in such a tasteful and impeccable manner.

Nihad & Todd

Words cannot properly express our gratitude for all that you and your staff did to turn our wedding reception and our stay into a beautiful memory we will cherish for the rest of our lives. From the doormen to the front desk to the waitstaff to your absolutely brilliant, poised, and amazing self -- you all made us feel like VIPs from the moment we walked through your beautiful doors in January to the moment we stepped out on Monday afternoon.

People have been calling and emailing us all day to tell us they have never been to such an elegant, beautiful, and delicious wedding, and we are so indebted to all of you for this!

You have truly gone above and beyond for us, and we will be grateful for years to come, no doubt!

Todd and I will certainly return to the Harbor Hotel for future anniversary dinners and strolls down memory lane!

We are on our way to California right now gushing about how amazing our wedding day was. We absolutely have you to thank for it all! We can’t thank you and your staff enough for all the hard work, diligence and attention you have given us and our families. Our guests were so impressed with the hotel and all that it offered to make their time with us so joyful. The staff, food, décor and cake – all was so beautiful and delicious!

Rob and I are in a cab on our way to the airport for our honeymoon right now, and we just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU to you and everyone at the Boston Harbor Hotel for giving us the most amazing wedding weekend we could have ever imagined! It was truly first class, from the moment we checked in to the moment we checked out. Thank you for helping me with all the details along the way, and for ensuring that everything turned out perfectly. We can't thank you enough!!! We hope to come back and celebrate many anniversaries at the BHH.

Floral wedding centerpieces

Franchesca & Danny

We recently had the privilege of capturing the timeless Boston Harbor Hotel wedding of Franchesca and Danny. While prepping for the day was underway, the ladies were getting ready complete with glam team, champagne, and puppies! The bride wore a gown with a sweetheart neckline and delicate beadwork complemented by shoes that brought in a pink pop of color. Nearby, the gentlemen got ready, dressing in classic tuxes. Especially important to the couple was to be married in Franchesca’s family congregation, Sacred Heart Church. Located in the heart of Boston’s North End, the wedding ceremony was traditional and timeless. Immediately after, we grabbed some fun shots complete with a bubble send-off and formals on the greenway.

Caren & Mike

Caren and Mike wanted their wedding day to not only be classic and romantic but also a fun and personal for them and their guests. The couple loves to sail so when they were looking for a venue, the Wharf Room at the Boston Harbor Hotel was a perfect choice. The colors for the day were shades of whites with blush pink and a splash of sage and mint green. The bridesmaids wore full length blush dresses that accented Caren’s beautiful Oscar De La Renta gown beautifully.

The first look took place right on the water behind the Wharf Room and we spent some time with the couple and their wedding party before heading inside the hotel for their Kutubah signing. The traditional Jewish wedding ceremony took place in the Wharf Room overlooking Boston Harbor under a custom white orchid filled chuppah.

Tracey & Joel

Probably the moment of Tracey and Joel’s wedding that will always stick with me is her expression when she walked into the Wharf Room and saw the amazing-ness created by Gregory and his team at Flou(-e)r. She had wanted floral magic and she got it. She had these ideas about the guest card table, something about a flower hedge, and he made it happen. And then there was this crazy cool chandelier of flowers over the dance floor. It was all truly stunning. And when Tracey walked in I could see how everything was exactly what she had dreamed of for her special day.
But let’s begin at the beginning….

We had our wedding in the Wharf Room at the Boston Harbor Hotel in June 2018 and everything was just perfect! We knew right away that the Boston Harbor Hotel was the venue for us. The Wharf Room itself is stunning, plus the location is the perfect balance between a convenient city wedding with unbeatable water views. The food was the best we’ve ever had - we couldn’t believe how delicious everything was at the tasting and our guests still can’t stop raving about the food. The pastry team created the most stunning and delicious cake for us! Most importantly, the service was top notch. Ted Daniels was hands down the most valuable resource we had wedding planning and we can’t thank him enough for all of his valuable insights. He recommended great vendors, made an incredible day of schedule (which many of our engaged friends have since asked if they could copy), answered every question we had, and made sure everything ran perfectly. Ted took care of every detail so we didn’t have to worry about anything in the months leading up to the wedding. Outside of Ted’s planning expertise, the rest of the team from the doormen to the management team to the waitstaff, all went above and beyond. The Boston Harbor Hotel is a five star hotel and the service you receive for your wedding is five stars all the way.

Charlotte & Justin

My husband and I got married at the Boston Harbor Hotel this past June and it was the most magical weekend of our lives! We hosted our rehearsal dinner, welcome cocktails, ceremony & reception and brunch at the hotel. All of our guests were from out of town and we wanted to ensure that everything was taken care of for the entire weekend. The Boston Harbor Hotel was the most perfect venue for our wedding, from the guest accommodations and event venues to the staff and food (oh yeah and THE VIEW!!! ☺ ) To say I was a nervous bride is an understatement but Michael and his team was so easy to work with, they could not have put me more at ease. 

The different event venues offered at BHH are unparalleled, each with their own unique style and view of the Boston Harbor. We hosted our ceremony and reception in the Wharf room, which meant that the staff had to flip the entire room during our one-hour cocktail party. I continue to hear from guests about how impressed they were with the absolutely FLAWLESS transitions from one location to the other. 

The food at BHH was also top notch. Since we had so many events at the hotel, we literally went though every item on the menu. Michael and his team set up a private area for my husband and I to take a break after the ceremony and try all of appetizers our guests were having at the cocktail party. I was always told that on your wedding day you won’t be able to eat any of the food, this was not true at all! The food was so good that I ended up trying a little bit of everything. We had steak and lobster for our wedding dinner, which was perfectly cooked for all of our 180 + guests and I continue to receive praises from guests about the Peking duck carving station at our rehearsal dinner. 

We are looking forward to returning to BHH for our anniversary!

Michael was an extraordinarily responsive event coordinator with whom it was an abject pleasure to interact at every turn. His dedication and commitment to the unqualified success of our event was obvious, genuine, outstanding and comforting. From our very first meeting, and unfailingly at every subsequent meeting, Michael took great pains to listen to, and appreciate, our and the bride's and groom's tastes and sensibilities and overall vision for the affair. Throughout the planning process, he applied his enormous expertise to make recommendations consistent with those tastes and sensibilities, recommendations he carefully tailored to the realization of our vision. He was honest, open and a source of our great confidence in the ultimate success of the wedding - -  a confidence fully rewarded by the magnificent affair we and our guests enjoyed.

Michael's attention to detail, ability to anticipate virtually every eventuality, exceptional organizational abilities, fun and professional demeanor, heartfelt desire to provide us with a perfect affair, and vast knowledge and experience, afforded us a thoroughly pleasurable planning experience and wedding day, free of the tension and concerns that we imagine would have entered the process had we been working with a person of lesser capabilities. 

We are very grateful for, and appreciative of, the opportunity to have worked closely with Michael. He is, as you doubtless are aware, an invaluable asset to the Boston Harbor Hotel who everyday, by his actions, manner and the beauty of the events he so brilliantly creates, still further enhances the already stellar reputation of the Boston Harbor Hotel.

If I only had one word to describe the execution of Sofia’s wedding it would have to be magnificent.

The timing, delivery, service, ambiance and LOVE all came together to WOW my family and all our guests.

We will never forget the minute details that went into making our evening at the BHH so special.  From the champagne room delivery to the napkin folding, we felt pampered.

Thank you Michael, for all your knowledge and hard work, you did a fabulous job!
