What a great time and it could have been such a mess. ORIGINALLY, we had inviations made and mail to be married outside at Dorothy Park along the Plymouth Waterfront and have our reception of 70 people outside under a tent at EAST BAY GRILLE. WHAT WE DID DO was change EVERYTHING 10 DAYS BEFORE THE WEDDING. Best thing we ever did. EAT BAY GRILL...uggh. talk about getting screwed and ingnoring a contract. They did apologizing and gave us back our deposit. Thankfully we blocked of 10 rooms and the John Carver Inn and 10 rooms at the Radisson Harbor for our guests, as you see from our ratings..the John Carver was my greatest regret. And no, they never made any consessions whatsoever..but I degress. We interviewed, previewed and book the Plimouth Plantation and the Cold Spring Chapel within days of eachother. WHat a great time. THe guests all got personally call and an emails about all the changes, but to get married in August outside was tricky as the town refused us the use of chairs or a tent..as was the original plan. So the COLD SPRING CHAPEL, imacculate, pretty, cozy, air conditioned, ample free parking. Gen was reassuring, professional kind and just on the job. Dianne Cox at Plimouth Plantations...wow what an impressive job they did. We got some extras - like a cordial bar of the older folks and they threw in extra pastery as we did not have a wedding cake. Getting married in your 40's with 3 children of your own, your priorities change. We did not break the bank and got the wedding out our dream in under 10 days.
rooms were so dirty 95% of my guests left. My brother in law rented 2 rooms, when he checked in they only had him as reserving 1, so a party of 8 was forced to share 1 room. I suspect because they were overbooked. When I called 2 weeks before there were 3 reservations under the family name and when he arrived only 1 for his family an 1 for his brother. My king bridal suite was dark, old, dirty, the wine glasses has lipstick on them, the inside of the bedspead was stained. I can go on and on. The Radisson was clean friendly and was able to take some of my Sunday night guests in.
Kimberlee was FANTASTIC. Kim was professional, arrived early and knows how to calm down a bride and the other women in the room. Not al easy task!! Prices are fantastic. Check out her facebook for before and after pics of this 40 year old bride. You just can't look your best with our help from Kimberlee
Genevieve Donelan Jaegeris the contact person for Cold Spring Chapel. Gen was so incredibly helpful and professional. The day of my wedding she was beaming as if she was our closest friend. This is by far the best kept secret in Plymouth, for those with out a religios affiliation or those who want "the New England Experience". Charming white church..decorations are optional and can be rented. These faux flowers are placed on the pews and look very elegant. We opted not to rent the center piece because we had a sand ceremony. Over all, the cost, level or professionalism, availability to amble free parking. I would recommend the Cold Spring Chapel as the perfect place to hold a wedding.
What can I say. 95% of my guests escaped from the filth and mold of the John Carver Inn and were welcomed with open arms at the RADISSON PLYMOUTH HARBOR. The Location: PERFECT, PARKING: Free and plenty. THe breakfast buffet - our guests raved about it. THe new restaurant next door-the WATERFRONT. Is fantastic and you can walk to East Bay, or to the Blue Eyed Crab. THe Radisson will treat you kinder, offer you better customer service, larger, newer cleaner rooms. for less money than the John Carver Inn...PATTY MOSESSO is the contact person.
Ted Maher was our D.J. he was dressed in a tux..and knows how to M.C. we had 3 songs for our entrance songs, 1st dance and he new exactly how to cut and blend them all. We had 10 kids at our wedding and Ted was fantastic at incorporating their type of music. On his website you are able to enter in all the songs you want to be played and he arrainges when, etc. Price - Can not be beat. Best in the Boston/South SHore area..
I wrote the New England School of Photography and requested they email my job request to all graduates. THis is a GREAT WAY TO SAVE MONEY. Christina is able to DO ANYTHING you want to to meet your budget. Of course she was early and managed to be 2 places at the same time and got shots of EVERYONE. We got the digital images of or wedding 20 days after the weddings. Ridiculously fast turn around time. All I can say is you want an inexpensive experienced photographers who does not mess around with fuffy photos you do not want. You gotta call her. In short she does EXACTLY what you want and wonderfully. Cristina Hajosy Photography
WOW!! What a great job Diane Cox and Amy du Fasio from the Plimoth Plantation did. Our wedding receptin had to be relocated 10 days before the wedding. The PLIMOTH PLANTATION was the best choice we made. We had 9 days until the wedding to find a spot, thankfully they were open on our already planned Sunday. Wedding Mapper was a great resource as the Plimoth Plantation already had good reviews. We got the filet mignon served with lobster mac n cheese. WHAT A HIT. All of our guests loved it. The Vegetarian special Rositto stuffed eggplant was incredible!!The open bar was was a nice touch (its all included in the price) We got the additional cordial bar at desert time and my aunts and uncles loved it. It gave the guys time to sit and have coffee pastery and a shot in a nice atmosphere. The abilityto sit outdoors and have a cocktain was great. The wedding was indoors(fully airconditioned room) and outdoor space. Again all in the price. We have access to a kid friendly zone. Perfect for us since our children where in the wedding.
