Another Wonderful Thank You from a Very Satisfied Wedding Couple

Our guests say it best -- this was an email from a very happy bride and groom.

Subject: Thank you

Dear Christine,

This email is very late in coming, I hope you can excuse me. My name is Megan B and my husband David B and I had our wedding reception at the Hawthorne on Friday, November 5th, 2010. David and I want to thank you and your wonderful staff for all you did to make our wedding day as perfect as could be. Everyone warned me, in the weeks prior to the wedding, that "something always goes wrong" at weddings, so I shouldn't plan on it and get my hopes up. But now, when people ask me how it went, the first word that comes to mind is "perfect", because...that's what it was. Looking back, I don't have a single thing I would change about our beautiful wedding reception. Your excellent staff made sure it went off without a hitch. They were accommodating, checked everything with us in advance (briefly, so as not to interrupt our enjoyment of the evening), and just so wonderful! We were able to enjoy our wedding reception without worrying about the little details, or things going wrong. Our parents commented to us that we had made a great choice in having our reception at the Hawthorne Hotel. I can't praise you and your staff enough for all that was done for us, and I will certainly recommend you to any other brides who plan on getting married in the North Shore, MA, area! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Best wishes for a happy New Year 2011!

With thanks,

Megan and David B

A Unique Wedding Favor

At many weddings there are "camps" of guests -- whether families or groups of friends who know each other, and then "everyone else" which constitute the other guests unknown to them.

This favor seeks to help to break that "ice" that can exist between people in situations like that, and we think it is a keen idea.

Months ago there was a wedding here that had a very unique wedding favor for their guests. I had some scans made of this item, and promptly forgot to put them up here on the wedding blog.

While the scans are a bit hard to read, you can see by the introduction and the titles what the purpose and outcome might have been. We enjoyed seeing the guests reading first about themselves, and then learning more about each other.

The scans recently came back to my attention, so I am finally getting them posted for you to see.

I hope you enjoy yet another look at an interesting wedding here at the Hawthorne Hotel.
