A New Year's Eve Wedding

Tonight's wedding was so beautiful to behold, I thought you might like a peak at the wedding party that I snapped in the lobby as they were posing for their photographer.

As I spoke to our guests tonight, some were surprised about the idea of a New Year's Eve wedding, but when I explained that we normally did host a wedding virtually every New Year's Eve, and that it was a great excuse for a party on a night when people were already in a party frame of mind, those same guests nodded vigorously in agreement.

I hope you enjoy this little look at a slice of life here at the Hawthorne Hotel in Salem, Massachusetts.

A Summer Wedding Turns "Christmas-y"

We received this Christmas card from one of our couples who got married here during the summer. They turned their photo into a holiday one, and we thought you might enjoy seeing it.

Happy Holidays and "Married Christmas" from the staff of the Hawthorne Hotel, and from Paula and Arthur.

The Winter Holidays Lend a Festive Air to the Hawthorne Hotel Ballroom

Touches of sparkle add a decidedly festive look to the Hawthorne Hotel Ballroom. Here you can see the wreaths and window box dressings sparkling in the windows, while the chair covers, with their burgundy red bows have just the right touch of sheen. A lovely look for a winter wedding!

A Lovely Couple. . .

. . . and what we thought was a unique photo. This is Heather and Peter, who got married on December 2, and had their wedding reception here at the Hawthorne Hotel in Salem.

When you are thinking of a venue for your wedding, many factors come into your decision. One thing you may want to consider is whether or not the place where you celebrate will be around for your 10th or 25th or 50th anniversary. When you have your reception in an Historic Hotel of America, you know that the property is dedicated to preservation.

While it's not a guarantee, you are much more likely to be able to come back and celebrate those milestone dates right here. Should you choose a country club or a reception hall, there is no place to stop in for those in-between special dates, like there is right here at the historic Hawthorne Hotel. Not a big thing, but something to think about.

We hope you will plan to share your special day with each other, right here at the Hawthorne.

I look forward to meeting you.
