Boston Red Sox + N Y Yankees Wedding = Happily Ever After

On the day of the grand rolling rally celebrating the Boston Red Sox winning of the World Series, a charming couple had their wedding reception here at the Hawthorne Hotel.  When they were planning their wedding we doubt that the potential of a Red Sox win of the World Series was even a dot on the horizon, but things have a way of working themselves out the way they need to, and that was indeed the case.

The couple, Jennifer and Scott, are a bride who is an avid Red Sox fan, and a groom who adores the Yankees  -- what a combination!  We are so happy that at least one of "their" teams won!!!

They spent a lot of time and effort creating just the special touches to add a major league baseball flair to their special day.  Here are some photos so you can see their ideas yourself.

 The placecard table featured a field of dreams for this young couple (above) and the placecards were darling "tickets" which were done so nicely to really replicate a ticket to a ballgame.

 Instead of a guestbook, they had a guest "bat" for their guests to sign.  Such a clever idea!
 A view of the room from the "grandmother" windows.

 The centerpieces also functioned as the table numbers, and featured peanuts in the shell and baseballs on a field of "grass" -- so special!
 The bouquets were made to look like baseballs -- such fun.
 Their wedding cake was separated into tiers using cut baseball bats.
 The "groom" and "bride" sat next to the cake instead of top -- and it was a good thing or I'm not sure we could have gotten a close-up of the cake at all.

 A panoramic view of the Ballroom shows you just how tall the cake was -- talk about a home run!
I hope you enjoy this view of this very special wedding, and that it inspires you to make your wedding your own special day as well.

    My husband and I were at this wedding and I know for certain that everyone had a wonderful time. I've known Jennifer since she was born and Scott is definitely her perfect soul mate. The "Special Touches" were just that and anyone who knows them knew just what their wedding theme was all about. I still talk about this wedding to my friends. The Hawthorne staff did a superb job to help make this a special and memorable day for Jen and Scott. Best Wishes Jen and Scott !!! Thank you Hawthorne Hotel !!!

  2. Thanks to all the staff at the Hawthorne Hotel for making our daughter Jennifer and son-in-law Scott's wedding day more wonderful than we imagined it would be. Every detail that we expected was fulfilled with perfection. Guests who stayed at your hotel from New York were impressed by your gracious hospitality and thoroughly enjoyed their first stay in Salem. Again, our sincerest thank to the Hawthorne Hotel for A HOME RUN!! As I stated that day, we had our own World Series Celebration in Salem! Henry and Patricia Rutkowski
