ANNIVERSARIES ABOUNDING

Here at AE Events, we love a good milestone!  The clink of champagne glasses toasting a marriage, the laughter of colleagues enjoying a reunion, and the applause of supporters championing a life-changing cause…what a joy it has been to be a part of these monumental celebrations in the past few months. And there have been a lot of them!  All together 365 years…we raise a glass once again to you all.

A moment like this doesn’t happen every day!  The stunning Museum of Fine Arts Boston glowed with the warm community of  Jewish Family & Children’s Service, in a breathtaking tribute to 150 years of human connection. Just as a point of reference…Abraham Lincoln was president!

Talk about life-changing stuff…the May Institute has been serving up independence, choice, dignity, and respect for over 60 years.  Hats off to their absolute dedication to individuals with disabilities.

Davio’s Boston was the destination for this 20th anniversary celebration of The Spofford Group.  From exquisite music to sumptuous food to fine Scotch, the evening paid tribute to the detail and focus that this remarkable company brings to its clientele.

HOW COOL IS THAT?

Our team at AE Events found out yesterday that we were awarded “Best Wedding Coordinator of 2015” in Boston Magazine’s #BestofBoston.  Needless to say, we are thrilled and honored.  We may have even jumped up & down in the office just a little bit…I mean, these are the things to celebrate in life, right?  How cool is that?

Ah yes, celebrations.  The spirit of our company is built around crafting experiences that really and truly reflect and celebrate the people that each event is about.  We hope that what comes through to our clients is that we love being a part of creating their moments and their memories.

So we raise a glass to our clients, with a few tributes here….

Being a part of designing someone’s wedding day?  How cool is that!


#9 – Say Cheese!

It’s Wedding Wednesday and time for our monthly check-in with bride-to-be, Elizabeth…

Say Cheese! No, not that kind of cheese, though I must admit I’m a little obsessed with the Deep Fried Truffle Mac n’ Cheese that will be served during cocktail hour on the big day… but I digress…

As I mentioned before, Tom and I decided early on that there were three things that were undoubtedly more important than any of the other aspects of the wedding: Venue and Food  – which I’ve covered in past posts – and today’s topic: Photography.

Making a decision on photography (and videography for that matter) was another difficult task for us.  Not only does Tom have several fantastic photographer friends but we at AE Events work with many very talented photographers as well!  However, I was intrigued by an advertisement I kept seeing from George Street Photography.  And while I was timid to go with a corporate company vs. an independent photographer – we found that what George Street offered for the price we could afford, was hard to pass up.

Some of the things in our awesome package that sealed the deal:

– Lead Photographer for 10 hours
– Assistant Photographer for 6 hours
– 90-minute Engagement Session with our Lead Photographer
– Online Proofing and Ordering
– Digital Negatives
– Leather bound Wedding Album + Two 6×6 Albums
– Videographer for 8 hours
– Wireless mic for the Ceremony
– High Def Blu-Ray DVD Master Copy of all footage + 5-7 Minute Highlight Reel
– Professionally Certified Video Editors
– Online Portal where you can manage the look of your day, prints, scheduling and have an event coordinator on hand to confirm your photographer the day before and the day of

I’ll save my final review of them for after the wedding, however I can say that so far I am very pleased with their service as well as the photographer that we selected from their network: Colleen Moore McCarthy.

Speaking of which… two weeks ago Tom and I took a day off to meet with Colleen at the Boston Public Garden (the scene of our engagement 9 months ago) for our 90-minute Engagement Session.  And we just so happened to get our shots back last night… Enjoy!
