    We chose the Hall of Fame for our reception venue prior to even being engaged. We'd heard they did events there and it seemed perfect for us, two avid New England sports fans. My husband lives and breathes Boston Celtics basketball. So when the time came, it was our first task. Our table numbers were both retired and current players. Our groomsmen wore custom Celtics jerseys (their gifts). We made our entrance in the elevator. I can't explain how amazing it was... The HoF accomodated up to 400 people (we had 388 on our guest list) and we had 322 in attendance. Max Catering has exclusive catering rights (they were phenomenal). The Hall charges by the hour and there is also an admission fee per person since the entire museum remains open throughout the event. I won't lie, it was a steep bill just for use of the venue...but I wouldn't have changed a thing. Worth every penny in my eyes. I had such a hard time with some of my other vendors...that Josh Belliveau at the Hall of Fame and Amy Bombard from Max Catering were incredible, an absolute pleasure to work with. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making our day what it was and will always remain in our memories.
