My wedding was a dream. The room was transformed perfectly, the food was insane and the way you connected with all the vendors and “ran the show” was a class act. Not to mention you kept my mom and I on track the entire process without overwhelming us. My parents, Jason and I were able to enjoy the entire process but most importantly the entire night. If anything did go on behind the scenes we didn’t even know about it.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for executing and bringing my dreams to reality.


Thank you so much for all of your tireless work to make the events celebrating the opening of the new wing of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum the incredible success that they were. Due to your careful planning and attention to detail, each guest felt welcomed and special from the moment they walked in to see the array of champagne-bearing waiters to the time they found their donuts waiting for them in their cars. You have taken the renowned hospitality of Isabella Stewart Gardner into the 21st century!

I don’t know how you do it, but every year you surpass the prior year, and as a result, the Gardner Gala just gets better and better. The three dining spaces were all equally dramatic - from the vibrancy of Calderwood Hall, to the tropical vibe in Hostetter Gallery, to the stunning elegance of the Tapestry Room, each space was a feast for the senses. Thank you so very much for all you do to make the Gardner Gala the most exquisite event in Boston. You bring extraordinary passion and professionalism to your work which is greatly appreciated by all of us. Your respect for our historic spaces couples with your artistry and creativity ensure that Isabella’s panache for entertaining continues today.

To say we are grateful for everything we have experienced this year would be the understatement of the century. 
Words cannot describe the love and thankfulness we have for each of you which was brought back to us as we went through each and every picture from our wedding weekend. The thing we loved most is the JOY that was captured on film and getting a chance to re-experience the love and support that each of you gave to us that entire weekend! We will never be able to adequately express how it felt or how grateful we are to have felt it but it changed our lives just as saying “I Do” to each other did! We love you all so much! Thank you for the gift of being our family!
