    Wedding at Boston Harbor Hotel

    We had our wedding at BHH, and we could not recommend it enough. The location, food, and staff were all world-class, but we’d like to call special attention to Ted Daniels, who was the wedding coordinator at the hotel.

    Ted was the consummate professional, and it was clear from our first contact. When we first reached out to him to ask for prices, he replied with a clear, concise, and fair contract within hours. After spending weeks wading through contract issues with our original location, working with BHH and Ted was a breath of fresh air.

    Things only got better as our experience continued. One thing we really valued about working with Ted was his ability to listen to our preferences, clearly explain what BHH could (and could not) do, and make thoughtful suggestions based on his decades of experience in the industry. It was our first time planning a wedding, and Ted helped us understand the pros and cons of our options. His clear communication and *serious* attention to detail were a huge — planning is much less stressful when you know you have someone you can rely on.

    One unexpected positive experience: BHH can also help you select vendors who have a relationship with the hotel. We didn’t think this would really matter, but several of our vendors that we met through BHH made a point that they wanted to do an especially good job because they valued their relationship with Ted.

    Finally, the day-of experience was perfect. Ted worked closely with our vendors and ensured everything ran seamlessly while we enjoyed time with our friends and family. The food was absolutely delicious, the Wharf Room was stunning, and our friends and family had a great time.

    TL;DR: You cannot make a better pick than working with the Boston Harbor Hotel and Ted Daniels.

    Boston Harbor Hotel is the perfect venue for a Boston wedding!

    The Boston Harbor Hotel made my wedding day dream come true! Picking a venue is probably the most difficult decision when it comes to planning a wedding. If you are considering the Boston Harbor Hotel, do not look elsewhere. Ted Daniels, is amazing! He is super responsive, considerate, and he executed our wedding day in the most perfect way I could have imagined! From the tasting, to the menu options, and picking out the chairs and linens – Ted will be there to guide you through the process. Ted understands every intricate detail and will make your wedding day dream come true. I had mentioned to Ted I really loved swiss dot and that was arranged for on my cake! He understands how stressful weddings can be to plan and does his best to arrange and accommodate for anything. If you choose to have your wedding day at the Boston Harbor Hotel it will be the best decision of your life and you will not regret it. I am so lucky to call the Boston Harbor Hotel my wedding venue!

    Just perfection.

    When we decided to downsize our initially larger, traditional wedding to a 10 guest affair (thanks to covid-19) it was important to us that we maintain a unique, classic, and a once in a lifetime atmosphere. And we could not imagine a better experience than the one we had at the the presidential suite at the Boston Harbor Hotel! Every aspect of our experience, from the planning process through the entire event, was absolutely perfect. The catering manager, Ted, made booking and planning a breeze. He helped guide decisions from food to room arrangements, which took all the stress out of the wedding planning process and allowed us to just sit back and enjoy (something we very much appreciated after such a stressful un-planning process of the first, larger wedding). Once we checked in, the staff were incredibly attentive, kind, and anticipated/created details that we hadn't even imagined! They went above and beyond - even helping to decorate the space without us asking (creating an adorable bar set up with a sign that my cousin had gifted and placing additional flowers that had been leftover from the cake in display bowls around the room)! The chef and housekeeping managers regularly checked in with us throughout our stay. The food was delicious and we had multiple guests comment that it was some of the best food they have ever had (the truffle tater tots were SUCH a hit!) Between the stunning backdrop of the suite itself, the harbor views, the service that I wish I could rate more than 5 stars, and the quality of the food, we could not give a strong enough recommendation for the Boston Harbor Hotel. We only wish we could have stayed a few more nights!!

    P.S. The technology set up made streaming our event so easy. We simply set up a laptop the face the aisle that was DIYed by our friends and the wifi was never an issue (and we were out on the balcony!). We also recorded the event on an ipad staged on a tripod. The bluetooth speakers throughout the suite made it easy to stream music before the ceremony and for the party after!

    P.P.S. the master suite's bathroom and dressing area deserves it's own 5 star review!

Each wedding is different as it reflects the couple’s style; be it, the time of year, set up and décor of a Ballroom, food and beverage selections, to how they end the wedding. “Don’t tell your guests about the wedding details. Let there be suspense as your guests will enjoy the wedding more and you will enjoy seeing their reactions that much more.
