Flawless Day at The Ritz-Carlton, Boston
We were looking for a venue with excellent service, a venue that was sophisticated yet modern and elegant that did not feel like a hotel conference, and offered special Boston attractions within walking distance. With many luxury hotels within Boston, The Ritz-Carlton, Boston was by far delivered the best first impression that would exceed any couples expectations. We toured six within the city!
We planned to have 142 guests, and loved that we could host a ceremony, reception, and social after the wedding in the same location for out of town guests. We wanted our guests to feel relaxed and enjoy their experience as much as us.
Ralph was our senior event manager, and was proactive and responsive with every detail. He is a true professional, seasoned with many weddings under his belt and offered great recommendations to make the space fit and feel perfectly for us.
The entire process from inquiry, to tasting, to the weekend of our wedding was flawless. During our tasting in March (for our September wedding), our parents happened to mention that they too, were celebrating their anniversaries in the month of September. Six months later, both sets of parents received a special anniversary dessert in addition to our wedding cake that they continue talking about to this day. You’ll also notice how much is included in the various wedding packages and made decision making easy when planning to host our special day at The Ritz-Carlton, Boston.
The hotel is newly redesigned after a multi-million dollar renovation and offer great accommodations, and suites, with the club level being a great addition for last minute waters or snacks the day of the wedding for those guests that select that service. The ballroom also recently redesigned offers great floor to ceiling windows overlooking the Boston Commons, beautiful chandelier and décor neutral but stunningly beautiful that allow flexibility for any décor, taste or budget. Not only was the ballroom beautiful, the chiavari chairs, plates, charger plates, silverware and glassware were of the quality you would find in a high end steakhouse.
We had our ceremony in The Washington Ballroom and offered perfect floor to ceiling windows, a great entry flow for our guests to enter, and was intimate but not overly crowded to have a wonderful ceremony. We selected to have a pianist, cello and harp player and the acoustics in the room were great. The natural light offered beautiful lighting for excellent photos.
Our cocktail hour was in the foyer to the Grand Ballroom, and the service continued to be spectacular. The full bar set up flowed nicely with nice areas to set up high cocktail round tables overlooking the city below, with great passed hors d’oeuvres (great presentation, what was meant to be hot was hot, what was meant to be cold was cold) and had a great selection that everyone loved.
Service the day and evening of our wedding was incredible. Nearly every guest commented on how attentive the ballroom servers were, with perfect and personalized service, always making sure plates were cleared quickly, beverages were always filled, and made everyone feel like true VIP’s. The three course meal with designer boutique wedding cake were prepared perfectly, tray-passed prosecco upon arrival was fantastic and timely and added a great detail, and the flow from the ballroom to cocktail hour to reception was easy and perfect transitions for the chapter of the day.
Without delay, we would highly recommend The Ritz-Carlton, Boston. With the perfect location next to the Boston Commons and Rose Garden, to the personalized service for you, your wedding party, family and friends, to the perfect ballroom with excellent food and service, the hotel and event management are unmatched in the heart of Boston.
