Even before we had to postpone our wedding in June 2011 after my dad sustained a traumatic brain injury two weeks before our wedding, I had only good things to say about working with Megan Galbraith to plan our wedding reception. However, now I would say that she was not only a great wedding coordinator, but a wonderful person. She and the other hotel staff were so helpful and understanding when we had to postpone.
We had a small wedding reception and from the first time that we met with Megan, she was genuinely interested in helping us have the reception we wanted. She was an absolute pleasure to work with. It was such a relief to find a coordinator and a company who were willing to work with us.
On the day of our wedding, the cocktail hour and reception went wonderfully. We only had a couple issues (e.g., having to track down the bar tender during the open bar portion of the evening, staff clearing away people’s drinks after a couple sips). Otherwise, we had a really pleasant experience and would definitely recommend Megan Galbraith and the Embassy Suites if you are looking for a fun and elegant wedding reception venue!

My daughter had her wedding reception at the Embassy Suites hotel in Waltham, MA in June 2011. The coordinator/catering manager Megan Galbraith did an terrific job.

The total package price was an excellent value because it included a pre-reception hors d'ouevre reception in the mezzanine, the reception meal in the ballroom, the wedding cake, the complementary bride and groom's hotel suite, a reduced rate for our out-of town guests, and a made-to-order full breakfast the next morning. The package also included food tastings of the meal menu and a separate cake tasting. We were given 3 cakes (6-8 servings each) to take home because we couldn't schedule a time for us all the get to the hotel.

Megan was very attentive. I was able to drop off things ahead of time and she had the table centerpieces made up to the bride's specifications. I was also able to drop off hotel guest bags we put together and she made sure our guests got them when they registered. We had a large bridal party (8 bridesmaids, 8 groomsmen, flower girl, ring bearer, parents of the bride and groom) and we were given the use of a room to set up before processing into the reception hall.

We had stayed in the hotel before and liked it then. Now the hotel has been newly re-decorated and it is even better. It is classier yet edgier at the same time. We liked the re-arrangement of the front lobby, especially the glass waterfall wall. Our guests loved the reception food and the breakfast. My husband and I stayed overnight after the wedding, even though we live only four miles away. We were able to relax that night and then spend time with our guests at breakfast. I would recommend all parents of the bride and groom do this.

Having our daughter's reception at the Embassy Suites was an excellent choice for us. The only very slight negative was that some guests found the road signage (by the town, not the hotel) confusing. It directed them to Winter Street away from the hotel. The sign for First Avenue is the actual one to follow, even though the hotel address is Winter Street. Maybe the hotel should use a First Avenue address to avoid some confusion.

The toughest part of planning my wedding with them (by the way back when I had my wedding they were the DoubleTree Waltham) was that about 4 months before my wedding the wedding planner I had worked with doing all my planning with left. The event went well the day of, with the exception that the food did not see to be either the same food or as good of quality as we got at our tasting. The serivce and attention to detail did make up for it though.
