One of the things that many people do not know about "us" is that we do off-premise catering for weddings, in addition to catering weddings here in the Hawthorne Hotel. Our VERY CENTRAL location means that so much is literally within one block of the Hotel, which makes utilizing differing venues to suit your needs quite simple.
That was the case for Cassie and Greg's wedding -- they stayed here, got ready here, got married at St. Peter's Church located just one block away, and then had their reception at PEM (the Peabody Essex Museum) which is just one block from the Church and one block from the Hotel. Here are some photos that we loved from the album created for Cassie and Greg by their photographer, Sweet Lady Jane Photography. This photographer did an awesome job -- she clearly has a creative "eye" and puts it to use in her work.
Darling use of this "bicycle built for two" image with their rings.
A unique shot of part of the Hawthorne Hotel showing our pineapple, the symbol of hospitality.
The rainy weather seemed to actually enhance the photos, making the surfaces shiny and fresh looking.
We love these photos of the bouquets lined up on the window sill in her suite. Again, the grey day outside actually softened the photo and made the colors look like a water color.
Great use of the antique mirror in this suite, as Cassie gets ready.
We recently added these wall hooks placed up high in each suite, specifically so brides would have a place to show off their gowns for the camera, and to make a nice hanging space for them as well.
We love this look at a beautiful bride in our historic hallways, which were recently re-carpeted and have new wallpaper and paint.

Here are Cassie and Greg being introduced into the East India Marine Hall at PEM.
Walking in the rain can seem so romantic!
At Salem Common, right next to the Hawthorne Hotel, the lights twinkled and the pavers had a gloss to them because of the rain.
Such a romantic shot!
Don't you love how everything is all aglow because of the rain?
The circular staircase at PEM makes for such dramatic photos. Here is the "copy and paste" version of Cassie and Greg's review of our services, as posted on WeddingWire.com --
5.0/5.0 Quality of Service: 5.0
Flexibility: 5.0 We used the Hawthorne hotel for catering for our wedding at the PEM as well as for a brunch the following day. Lindsay and her staff were excellent. Leading up to the wedding they always responded immediately and made the planning process effortless. The day of my wedding Jessica was the coordinator and she was wonderful. We had the perfect day and everything went as planned. Thank you! Wedding: 12/06/2014 Services Used: Catering ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I hope you enjoy seeing these photos, and reading this review, as much as we did!
