Our Fall wedding in Brookfield was perfect; it was everything I wanted! The leaves were gorgeous, the church was beautiful, the Salem Cross was awesome - everything was just the way I wanted it. For a small town feel, you can't go wrong with getting married in the Sturbridge/Brookfield area! Wedding Mapper was really fun, too; my guests had a blast looking over our map, and it was easy for them to get directions everywhere.
Katrina and her husband were fabulous, and I don't think I could have done the wedding without them! We are based in Boston, and Katrina met with me twice in Boston and once in Brookfield before the wedding. She took care of everything the day of the wedding; if there were any problems, I didn't know about them! She even collected all of our cards and gifts and drove them to my parent's house at midnight the night of the wedding - stuff that I really didn't feel like doing! She was really great.
Sandy and The Flowering Vine were amazing. Our flowers were simply GORGEOUS and were just what I wanted. I went with a less traditional look for my bridesmaids, and Sandy was really helpful and excited to help me make it a reality. She was great to work with, and our flowers were so reasonably priced.
We used this company for a shuttle that went from the hotel to the ceremony to the reception and back to the hotel. They were on time, friendly, safe and reasonable, and having the shuttle made me feel so much better about my guests drinking all night!! They negotiated with me until I felt I had a really good deal, and they were very friendly and easy to work with.
Me, my four bridesmaids, my mother and my aunt all had our hair done here the morning of the wedding, and we all loved how we looked. I had compliments that I had the best wedding hair people had ever seen, and it stayed up all night! I LOVED it, and I really felt as though they listened to us and did everything the could to make our hair look the way we envisioned. They were friendly and reasonably priced, as well. I HIGHLY recommend Park Place for the best wedding hair!! :)
Bonardi's was great - the location is convenient, the staff is knowledgeable, the prices are good, and they made it easy to pick up and drop off our tuxes during the hectic wedding weekend. They have a really good selection and an easy way for out of town groomsmen to reserve the right tux in the right size. They were great.
We had our rehearsal dinner at Rovezzi's in Sturbridge, and it was fabulous. The food was amazing, and the service was great. We had about 30 people in a private room, but you could have up to 50 or so on their upper level balcony. The food is ALWAYS good at Rovezzi's, and the prices are great. I highly recommend them!
This church is gorgeous, and it is the perfect spot for an intimate weddiing. We had 150 guests/wedding participants, and the church was absolutely full. Everyone was close, you could hear everything without a mic, and it really felt like all of our closest friends and family were there. Rev. Sara is AWESOME, as well - she really tailored the ceremony for us, and it felt meaningful and personal.
The Salem Cross Inn is a fabulous place for an intimate reception in the Brookfield area. The grounds and building are gorgeous, and the food is really amazing. Our entire group was served almost simultaneously, the food was hot and delicious, the bar was friendly, and I didn't worry about anything while it all happened! It can be a little tough to keep in close touch before the wedding, as they are definitely more phone oriented than computer oriented...but for the most part, they are all extremely friendly and helpful. Just don't be afraid to ask for just what you want - even if it's not what they usually do! It's a great place for a REALLY REALLY fun reception!
The majority of our overnight guests stayed at the Host, and they were great. I had to talk to them a LOT considering we weren't really using them for anything but accomodations. We had to coordinate our shuttle with them, the guest bags, the room block....they were great and really patient with me. It's a great location, as well, and the hotel is really nice! Indoor pool!
