Elegant Wedding in an Historic Venue
The OMNI Parker House management and staff were outstanding in helping us during the planning phase for our daughter's wedding (Bride and Groom live out-of-town) and throughout the entire wedding weekend. David Mediano, Director of Catering, was our lead contact, Elaine, Sienna, and Kyle were the banquet managers for the wedding reception and Sunday Brunch. Emilie was incredibly responsive in managing the room block--most all guests stayed at the venue. We felt like the whole hotel was involved with the details of the wedding with separate rooms for the bridal party hair and make-up, ketubah signing, ceremony, cocktail hour and ballroom reception --and yet another room for the Sunday Brunch. Wonderfully accommodating--and the outcome was a memorable and beautiful start to our daughter's marriage. Thank you!

We were married in the Omni Parker House Rooftop Ballroom on 12/29/17. We were looking for a city-feel Boston wedding, in the winter, accessible to guests flying in from all corners of the world, that felt elegant, classic and fun. The Parker House is all that, historic Boston charm and more. We worked with Alison Rose, one of the event coordinators, who was absolutely fabulous from beginning to end. She was well organized, professional, responsive and accommodating with everything from stopping by to pick out linens to day-of changes we made. The staff at the Omni were excellent-- everyone from the bellmen to the housekeeping to the banquet staff made sure every single imaginable need we had was met and exceeded. The day of, everything operated really well from shuttle pick up to the end of the night. The food was delicious and the reception/banquet staff, servers, bar staff, coat check, etc. were great! The ballroom looked absolutely beautiful all done up on our big day. Alison made us feel like her only clients for the entire year and a half we worked with her and we are so grateful we ended up having our reception at the Omni!

I cannot begin to express our gratitude that my husband and I have to the Omni Parker House and to Amanda, our coordinator. We had a two year engagement, which means that we spent a LOT of time communicating with Amanda and frequenting the venue. I was very concerned with the amount of people we invited (214), but Amanda assured us that the evening would flow smoothly. She encouraged us to visit the venue during weddings with a similar number of guests and was always there to greet us when we arrived (even though I am sure she had more pressing duties given that she was coordinating the weddings.). We ended up having 198 guests and I truly feel it was the perfect amount. From the flow of the cocktail hour in the Wheatley Terrace to the set up of the tables in the ballroom - everything was perfect! We met with Amanda on a few occasions and, when a potential problem occurred, she worked with us to offer solutions and always gave us the utmost confidence that the day would be everything we hoped for - and she was right! Everything was beyond our wildest dreams and she made our vision come to life. I didn't have to worry about organizing my vendors because Amanda reached out to them all and coordinated details with them.
We wanted a classic city wedding and the Omni Parker House made this possible. All of the history within the walls of the gorgeous hotel and the amazing views of the city from the rooftop ballroom were a few of the many reasons we chose it as our reception destination. Having a longer engagement meant that we made frequent stops to the Omni Parker House - and it has become such a special place to us. There is no othervenue like it in Boston and we are so grateful to have been able to celebrate such a special time in our lives at such a special place in history.
Thank you to Amanda and the wonderful staff at the Omni Parker House for making our wedding a night we (and our guests!) will never forget!

The Omni Parker house is one of Boston's Premiere Wedding Venues. The staff is very professional. The catering is always amazing. The over-all experience of having your wedding there is top-notch. Their staff will make everything go smoothly so as to have the perfect Boston wedding. I have photographed many weddings and events there and they will go out of their way to help you. I'd recommend the Omni to anyone for an event or wedding. Silver Pix Studios is humbled to be on their preferred professionals list of a hotel who's history is as long as the history of Boston and America. JFK proposed here to Jackie, and many more historic events have happened at this beautiful hotel. It actually is the longest continuously operating hotel in America. There is so much ambiance here from the delicate ornate crown moulding everywhere to the antique decor and luxurious warm feeling any historic building has. Having a wedding here is unlike any place in the city. We truly love everything about this hotel.
