    If I could give 10 stars, I would - From a Boston wedding photographer

    I've told Cheryl and Lisa that they can never retire.

    They are some of the best wedding coordinators that Boston has ever seen.

    Let's talk about the venue itself for a second: It's the hidden waterfront gem of Boston. It has a dedicated parking garage. The catering is delicious. The spaces are so unique and each one of them has so many possibilities. Wilder Pavilion and the Blue Wing are so dang awesome.

    I'm not a previous bride. I'm a Boston wedding photographer, who has been to the MOS more times than I can count. I know my way in and around all of the hallways not open to guests. I see all the crazy things that happen behind the curtain.

    You won't find a more caring and competent team than at the Museum of Science. I promise.

    Look no further than the MoS!!

    I sing and emcee in a wedding band so when it comes to weddings, I've see them all! We did not hire a planner for our wedding since we had a good idea about what we wanted. The museum is, first of all, GORGEOUS. But beyond that, everyone we worked with was so professional, helpful, and truly cared that we (and our guests) had the most perfect wedding day. Charlotte walked us through every detail before the big day and was truly a joy to work with. She'd remind us about things we would have never thought about and offered suggestions as well as vendors who were also amazing to work with. Because of working in this industry, I'm used to taking over a wedding and making sure everyone is where they're supposed to be and things are happening on schedule. As I started to take on that roll the day of my own wedding, I quickly realized I didn't have to! Lisa, our day of coordinator, proved herself exceptionally capable and really allowed me to relax (can you imagine?!) and enjoy every moment of our wedding day. Not to mention, she saved the day being prepared with some Tide stick for my dress. Overall, I've performed in at least 40 weddings and have had a fly-on-the-wall view of how other vendors work and I have never worked with anyone as professional, organized, and wonderful as the Museum of Science team. Look no further!
