Historic meets ultimate elegance - A review from a wedding photographer

As a wedding photographer, I see lots of crazy things. The good ones are memorable and heartwarming; the bad can be embarrassing and cringe-worthy. But what really gets me excited is when people give their all--whether its a wedding or a corporate event.

As someone who works with couples every weekend on intimate occasions like marriage ceremonies there's nothing more satisfying than knowing that the venue team is amazing. I've photographed at Boston Public Library dozens of times and love it here. I know it's not conventional for photographers to write reviews like this, but I wanted couples to know that there's so much you don't see behind the scenes. BPL's coordinators are always cheering you on, putting out fires that you'll never know about, and always have your best interests in mind. They're kind of unsung heroes.

Just wanted to say, well done, BPL.

Dream come true!!!

It was the dream wedding I could not have imagined. The combo of BPL and the Catered Affair is the BEST! Everything was so perfectly organized and coordinated, the food, the atmosphere and everything around it (including the vendors recommended by the team) was absolutely AMAZING... Meghan Cook is the best wedding organizer. We are still over the moon with just how perfect everything went.

Wedding Ceremony

My husband and I had our wedding in the Courtyard at BPL! We did the Picnic Package that was made available to couples who had to cancel their original wedding plans due to COVID. And I am so happy this happened!! We got the last time slot on our original day and were able to have our parents, photographer, and videographer attend. Alyssa at The Catered Affair was our contact at the beginning for logistics and food and was super helpful! We had the Mezze lunchboxes and it was delicious. Ken was our day-of contact and was so amazing!! He allowed us to come in a few minutes early to capture the lighting on the Grand Staircase. Without him, we wouldn鈥檛 have captured such gorgeous pictures!! He was super responsive, sweet, and helpful. He was in charge of the music and his playlist was perfect. We鈥檙e so happy with the staff, venue, and everything in between. Thank you for turning our last minute wedding into one we couldn鈥檛 have ever dreamed of. Thank you!

Performing at 500 events per year, we work with many different caterers. TCA @ the BPL always delivers first class service from small intimate social gatherings to huge corporate events and upscale weddings. They are so on top of their game, all we do is go with the flow of the night and follow their lead. So everything from introductions of a wedding party, to signature moments like toasts, speeches, cake cutting, parent dances, etc...always flow seamlessly. Their clients get to sit back and just enjoy their party. It is truly an honor to be partners with such an amazing company. They even reach out to all their vendors the week of the event to ensure everyone is clear about load in, set up, load out and of course the overall event time line. Their organization is superb and we sincerely appreciate all of their attention to detail. On top of all that, everyone is so friendly and accommodating, we've become good friends with many of their event producers and other staff members. Just a top notch company all around.
