Another lovely "THANK YOU" email

We just received this very nice email. Of course, we always take full credit for excellent weather! :-)



Dear Christine, Liz, etc. -

For once I am at a loss for words, which is a rarity!!

EVERYTHING was beyond perfect!!! I did not hear even a peep of negative from anyone, all I heard was how gorgeous the venue was, the food was superb, the staff was excellent, the weather, etc. (and especially the candy) was the best they have experienced at a wedding!

From the beginning of our planning until the check-out on Sunday morning I could not have asked for more, it was beyond a pleasure working with everyone and could not have pulled of the wedding of the year without you!!! (LOL) I don't know what to do now with all my free time!

THANK YOU soooo much for everything!!!

Susan & Matt

Where were you 57 years ago?

I love old photos. They tell such terrific stories. Here are two photos of a wedding reception that took place in the Hawthorne Hotel 57 years ago. I got to meet this couple, who are still very much in love, when they came to visit the hotel from California recently.

I took their photo and blogged about them on our regular Hawthorne Hotel blog. But I think their wedding photos, which they were kind enough to share with me, belong on our wedding blog.

I hope you enjoy seeing them, and their note to me. To make any of the images on our blog larger, just click on the image itself.

Fall-Themed Wedding

This past weekend we had a wedding that certainly got in the spirit of the Fall Season in Salem, Massachusetts. See for yourself.

This week we received a lovely thank you email and photo of a recent wedding. I thought you would like to see it as well.


Hi Laura,

I'm sorry I couldn't send this email to you sooner! I wanted to wait to send my thank you to you once we'd received our wedding photos, so I could send you one of our favorites from the reception! I can't thank you enough for all that you did to make our wedding the beautiful and memorable event that it was. From the planning, to the food, to all the little details, you and the rest of the Hawthorne were wonderful. We've received many compliments about the food and the atmosphere that I wanted to make sure to pass on to you. Everyone raved about both!

From our first meeting with you, you made Jeff and myself feel comfortable and excited about our choice to have our wedding at the Hawthorne. I look forward to coming back in the future for an anniversary visit!

Thanks again!


The groom's family is from Canada, so we flew the Canadian flag in their honor on their wedding day.
If you have a special request for a flag or flags to be flown, do let us know in advance, as we take these requests in the order we receive them.
I hope you enjoy seeing another Hawthorne Hotel wedding, and sharing in this couple's happiness.
