Rachel and Matthew 's Wedding

Our wedding was great! Getting married at the Gables was beautiful and meant a lot to my husband and I since it has many ties to our families. The weather held out for us, but we had a tent put up just in case. We were able to have the entire wedding, with a buffet and open bar for @ a very reasonable price (I will just say that it was under $17K). which I thought was very affordable for 134 people. The wesbite was a great resource for me when planning the wedding!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this place! John and his team are phenomenal and the girls and I looked beautiful! I still go there now because they did such a wonderful job. He listened to what I wanted and then added his professional opinion and my hair came out great!

Jeff was great! He played everything Matt and I wanted to hear and the crowd didn't stop dancing! He even had my grandmother up dancing with her cane! Very affordable, too

I cannot say enough about Ken. He had a very tough job catering for us because we had quite a few restaurant owners and head chefs in the mix. The food was fantastic. He cooked beef tenderloin for 134 people and you could cut it with a butter knife! The staff was excellent and attentive! I would hire him again for any event!!!

Taylor and his crew were great. He knew the Gables well and knew exactly what to offer us. We had to rent a tent, tables, chairs, and dance floor. The delivered and set up everything the day before the event and were there the day after at 8:30 to take it all down.

We had an open bar and supplied all of our own liquor. Vinnin Liquors in Swamspcott was very affordable AND we could return any unopened liquor (except for beer). Such a deal! They delivered the liquor to the venue for us, too!

We had our guests stay here. Some of the guests complained about the size of the room and noise. The bridal party stayed at the Salem Waterfront and the rooms were very nice!
