Liz and TJ said "I Do" on a beautiful day in June. The couple couldn't have ordered a more perfect day to match the gold and yellow tones they selected. With perfect weather, a beautiful ballroom and a fantastic couple…what more could we have asked for? The wonderful Molly from Molly Anne Photography was on site all day capturing their special day. Take a look!

We recently received a fantastic new review on TheKnot.com from one of our most recent weddings! We're so excited to hear that this couple had such a fantastic experiece here at the Boston Park Plaza. Congratulations to the Newlyweds!
"The Boston Park Plaza is a phenomenal venue and ideal for an Indian wedding.
First, let me talk about the venue. The Park Plaza is conveniently located and offers plenty for your guest to do during non-wedding events. We held our baraat (procession/parade where the groom's side arrives to the venue) down Columbus Avenue, and the hotel worked with our decorator to orchestrate all that. We then enter into the hotel, and proceed up an elegant set of stairs into a ballroom, where we held the Milni (receipt of groom family by brides family). We held the ceremony in the Imperial ballroom, which lives up to its name. It's grand. Many political figures have had their victory parties there. The hotel staff flipped the room for the reception, and it turned out perfectly.
Second, let me talk about their staff. We dealt with Adrianna Avery, who was professional and very available for any of our needs. During the event itself, she worked to ensure that everything ran smoothly. There were several last minute gliches that she helped fix. For example, for one of the events, we needed a small amount of rice; she managed to track that down. At another time, we needed cotton balls. Adrianna and her staff took apart several guest-toiletry boxes and collected the necessary cotton-balls. During the event, I personally saw Adrianna running around herding guests and making sure that everything ran smoothly.
It is worth discussing the value of this location. The Boston Park Plaza was significantly less than the other hotels that we looked at in the area (including the Seaport, Copley Fairmont, Copley Westin, Intercontinental). The one downside is that the room-rates for guests are still a bit pricy, and many of our guests opted to stay in other locations.
In terms of Indian weddings, there are not very many venues that work with outside caterers, and the Park Plaza did a phenomenal job of working with Masala Art (who is not the easiest company to work with). Also, the venue hall is large enough to handle lots of guest comfortably. They handle a lot of Indian weddings (and weddings in general), so they know how to deal with almost any situation."
