We cannot say enough about our experience with The Catered Affair at the Boston Public Library. The staff - James Hansen, in particular - was truly a pleasure to work with and made not only our wedding reception, but the entire planning process a positive and memorable one. I would recommend The Catered Affair at the Boston Public Library to anyone looking to host an elegant event with incredible food and service.
