Be sure to scroll all the way through the photos to the one at the very end. We love to have a bit of fun here at the Hawthorne Hotel, even when we are working on a lovely wedding. Then at the very end there is a brief video so you can see the light show on the ceiling, that was part of what the DJ supplied for this wedding. Flowers by Peter Barter Florist

Britony Wells and Liz Dube, Wedding Coordinators of the Hawthorne Hotel share a light moment just before the guests arrived in the Ballroom.
There was an artist in this couples group of friends and relatives, and the result were these great images used as "guest book" and on the program for the wedding. Unique touches like this are so much fun for us to see, and to share with you through this blog.
When we think of life 'pre-blog' and how things are now, we realized how much more fun it is to be able to share things with the 'world' through our blog. This has become a kind of magazine for us, and for you, fair blog-reader. We hope you enjoy it!
Our brides and grooms say the nicest things about having their wedding receptions at the Hawthorne Hotel. Here is yet another example:

Dear Hawthorne Hotel Catering/Sales Staff (Karen, Liz, and Robyn)
Jon and I wanted to send you a quick e-mail, to thank you for everything you did to make our wedding the most amazing day of our lives.
I started this journey back when I was going to school at Salem State College. I remember, visiting the Hawthorne and saying this is where I want to get married. I never in a million years dreamed that all my dreams would eventually come true. I have many friends who have attend weddings at the Hawthorne and couldn't stop raving about what an amazing time they had. So when we came for our first meeting with Karen, the deal was pretty much sealed, all I needed was for Jon to say he liked it, well my wish was granted because he LOVED it as much as I did. Thank you Karen for giving him a grand tour of the hotel and Ballroom.
On April 10, 2009, Jon asked me to marry him and less then a year later my wish and dreams did come true with a wedding we could only dream about, thanks to all your hard work and dedication to making every wedding special.
We would like to thank Liz for taking our vision, and theme and bringing it all together to look absolutely spectacular. From, the card trees (that I noticed are on your blog, Yippee!), to the tables in the Ballroom.
Liz, you and your crew turned our dream into a reality, thank you for letting us be the first to view the room and share in a very special moment as husband and wife. We couldn't have asked for a better coordinator to help us finish off the journey of our lives.
Also, I would also like to thank Robyn for all her hard work making sure our room block and guests had everything they needed. She was always so quick in responding to my e-mails, I never had to wait more then 20 mins for a response. This is what you call Awesome Customer Service.
Thank you to all your amazing wait staff for all their hard work getting the food out to our guests at the reception, everyone is still talking about how amazing everything was. I would also like to thank your waiter, I think his name was Mike for taking care of everything Jon and I needed, you were amazing.
. . . . (above) are some of my favorite photos of the Ballroom and a few of Jon and I that I thought you might enjoy.
Thank you again and we can't wait to stay with you on our 1 year anniversary.
Please let me know if you are not able to view the pictures. Again, thank you so much for a weekend to remember.
