Nifty New Year's Eve Wedding at PEM

Here is another "better late than not at all" blog post from a winter wedding this past year.  This wedding took place on New Year's Eve, and we catered it for this charming couple (see their photo at the end of this post) at the Peabody Essex Museum (PEM).  These photos were snapped for us by Lindsay Otis who was our catering manager in charge of this event.

Here are some quotations from the survey we sent to this couple after their wedding:

"Lindsay was phenomenal! We really enjoyed working with her. She strove to ensure we were happy with everything and did anything she could to alleviate our concerns."

"She was always available and was clearly interested in making our occasion and any related details a priority."

Here are the photos.  We especially love the snowflakes on the wall of the Atrium where the ceremony took place, and the use of her family "cake topper" which is dated 1948.  

Having a wedding on New Year's Eve is such a smart thing to do.  Your family and friends will have a unique party to attend on that festive evening.  Clearly you will never forget your anniversary date, and you can always be at a party to celebrate on that special occasion.  And having it just one block from a unique historic hotel like the Hawthorne Hotel makes sure that folks can party and stay safe on this festive night of the year.

I hope you enjoy this detailed look at this nifty New Year's Eve wedding.  We think it was worth the wait.
