Beat the Heat!

From the desk of: Caitlin Theall

So far, this summer has been a hot one (to say the least)!  Since we can’t control the weather and many events take place in the summer time, here are a few ideas on how to have a successful summer event while staying as cool as possible.

In New England, there are an abundance of beautiful outdoor event spaces. Here are some of my favorites:

1. Wequassett Resort and Golf Club in Harwich, MA – If you still want to make the most of this weather and host an outdoor event, look into venues on the water! You can count on an ocean breeze to keep your guests cool.

2. 9ofs in Boston, MA – This rooftop overlooking the city features a reflection pool and open-air garden, and for those who need an occasional break from the sun, lovely indoor space too!

3. Have a unique experience in mind?  A tented outdoor event is a great way to make it more intimate and personalized.

Give guests a favor they can use during the event…turn your event program into a fan!

Or provide sunglasses…no one will be able to enjoy your event if the sun is blinding them!

And one of our favorite ways  to  keep guests cool…serve refreshing food and drinks!

Frosé anyone?!

Wishing you a wonderful rest of your summer!


Hi Kristen!

From the desk of: Intern Kristen Kaneb

Hi, my name is Kristen, and I am a summer intern at AE Events. My decision to intern at AE involved a lot of thinking about what I hoped to get out of my internship  this summer. As a communications major at Loyola University Maryland, I knew that I wanted a strong background in event planning to better prepare myself for when I begin my job search after graduating from college.

I have always been interested in event planning. I learned that being an event planner would give me the opportunity to plan gatherings for celebrations and create events that bring people together. I look forward to the seeing the pieces all fall into place.

After discovering my passion was to be in event planning industry,I now had to determine where I would do my internship. I knew that I wanted to work in Boston, it is one of my favorite cities.  After some google searches, and asking around –  AE Events stood out over the rest as one of the Best in Boston. The diverse range of events that they managed was something that interested me instantly.

From non-profit to social to corporate, AE plans a variety of events for a diverse scope of customers. I am so excited to be a part of planning galas, weddings, conferences and so much more this summer. I am particularly interested to learn the different approaches to each type of event.
