We had an amazing wedding in Boston! Using wedding mapper was a nice option not only for the out of town guests but also fun for us to go down memory lane. May is the perfect time of year because it's not rainy and not humid yet, although with MA weather, that can change ;) Keep in mind Boston is listed in the top 5 for most expensive cities to get married in. So if it doesn't mean something to you, I might go to a surrounding town's venue. We chose it because we grew up practically in Boston and fell on love during college in Boston, so it felt right for us. It is a beautiful place to be and our West coast guests loved their time there, and they found the map we made really helpful!
I had no idea what I wanted but have always wanted a cake from the bakery that did cakes for the Kennedys and Red Sox. I found pictures from Pinterest from 3 three different cakes and from across the country over the phone, planned a cake with Debbi the cake planner. I had no idea what the cake would look like but I trusted Montilios and my cake was gorgeous!
My now husband and I first saw the Plaza ballroom when his university held a ball there when we were dating. After, when secretly planning my dream wedding, I imagined how special it would be to have our wedding there someday. Coming from Las Vegas with a tight schedule for visiting potential venues for our wedding 10 years later, I didn't think we'd actually end up at the Plaza. Touring for the fun of it, the rush of memories we experienced coupled with the enthusiasm of then coordinator, Ashley, we immediately booked. Unfortunately, Ashley ended up leaving for another position, and how the Plaza handled the transition to get us in contact with her replacement was difficult, which was 4/5 star worthy. However, the stellar handling by her replacement, Adrianna, brought our rating back up to a 5/5. Adrianna was helpful and understanding throughout the whole process, she answered my many question-filled emails with ease, and the weekend of the wedding knew when to steal me away from the craziness of my bridal party so that I could have a moment to regroup. I completely trusted her judgement if I wasn't available to make a decision day of about reception decor, and our parents felt comfortable in her capable hands maneuvering our wedding. The wedding itself was a complete blur with me getting 12 hours of sleep over 3 days, but when I look back at it, it was the perfect day at the perfect venue with the perfect man, thanks to the Plaza and Adrianna.
