Mark Mahar & Boston Swing
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We first saw Mark Mahar sing on Sunday night at Lucky's Lounge in South Boston, MA - where they have Sinatra Sundays. He was amazing! We asked him to put together a 10 piece band for us that would do the classic standards during dinner (Sinatra, Dean Martin, etc) but then would get everyone dancing after and he put together an amazingly talented group! Every bride worries about people dancing at their wedding - Hire Mark and you have no worries. I have had over ten people ask me for his contact info for their wedding. http://www.markmahar.com/

The Hartford Club
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We had 180 people at Hartford Golf Club and they did an amazing job with our reception. Jen was our coordinator and she was a pleasure to work with. My parents have been members of HGC for 30 years so they had high expectations. we had our tasting dinner - it was not exactly what we wanted so my mom went in with her own recipes, the chef redid everything and the second tasting was awesome. We had an hour and a half cocktail party with a martini icesculture that served four different martinis; a sushi bar; raw bar plus the token normal hot passed apps. Great three course dinner with soup, salad and then surf and turf. then we had a venetian dessert room plus the wedding cake. people are still raving about it - I was very very lucky that my parents hosted this kind of wedding. Jen made the night so great - I did not worry about one detail that night.

Boston Redsox
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
My friend got 20 tickets to a 4:00pm Saturday game and we had so much fun. We started at someone's house for a bbq/drinks and went to game on before going to the game. We had been "celebrating" quite a lot so I think everyone around us was psyched when we left to go to Tequilla Rain but the whole night was a blast! Thank you Thank you to my friends who planned it.

Devonshire Photography
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Andy Short >www.devonshirephotography.com >413.596.2267 We were so lucky to have both andy and his wife working with us on our wedding day. We had seen their work at one of our other friends weddings and loved it. They took great pictures but all normal ones - not posey, not in unnatural settings etc. They were flexible to stay another hour as our wedding kept going on into the night. They were very flexible about what kind of package we ordered too - I did not want a traditional book so they just sold us the negatives and the digitail print rights. They were in the action but not disctracting - I thought they were fantastic. I love my wedding pictures!

Rugg Road Paper Company
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
http://ruggroadpaper.com/ I ordered my invitations through the team at Rugg Road on Charles Street in Beacon Hill (boston, MA) and they were awesome. I wanted a traditional invite with a twist but did not have a lot of ideas beyond that. They came up wtih a square invite with a raised circle boarder with a japanese silk screaned paper wrapped around it so when our guests opened the invite it was like a beautifully wrapped gift to open. Everything was met on time with a great attitude from the team.

Nelson- The Spa
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Nelson-The Spa 37 Lasalle Rd West Hartford, CT 06107 (860) 570-1400 The first time I went to Nelson's to meet with Nelson was on my trial and he was awesome. he brought in all of these beautiful crystal combs adn tiaras to borrow (they weren't my style but so nice that he offered!) My trial made me feel very condident that my hair was in good hands but it was more than I htought (the trial was $125). I loved my hair that day and it was done in a way that I did not worry about it - veil in and out - lots of dancing - lots of hugs and kisses and it survived perfectly until 4:30 in the morning. Wedding updos are expensive though I think that day it was $300

St. Thomas the Apostle Church
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I had received my first communion at this church but then my family moved out of this parish. We chose to come back to it because my future mother in law was in a wheel chair and it was very accomodating for wheelchairs. IT is a good size church - a pretty long aisle to walk down with a beautiful choir loft and organ. The church itself is lovely - stained glass etc so you dont need a ton of flowers. we did two big arrangements at the front and twelve pew arrangements with a lot of candles everywhere. I love the way my pictures look in the church too! Our uncle who is a jesuit in Boston married us and the priests at St. Thomas were very nice about welcoming our uncle (not all churches are like that). Also we had a friend act as our cantor - he has an amazing voice but is not catholic. The music director worked for a few hours with our friend to get him up to speed on the music. I thought it was a wonderful location. One thing I found interesting about my wedding - with all the thought and money that is spent on the reception - the ceremony was my favorite part. My husband and I wrote our own vows and did not share them with each other until we recited them during the ceremony - that was really special for me.
