Grand Opening of the Harborview Ballroom at the Marriott Long Wharf in Boston

I had the pleasure of photographing the first wedding to take place in the Marriott Long Wharf’s brand new Harborview Ballroom. Marianne and Dan’s wedding there was spectacular. They had fabulous views of Boston Harbor, and the staff at the Marriott Long Wharf were wonderful to work with. A few weeks after their wedding the beautiful ballroom was officially opened at a wonderful event held for local vendors to see the new space and to taste some of their new delish hors d’oeuvres. I offered to take shots of the new space for them.
The great location was furnished beautifully by Lisa Santoro of Cort Event Furnishings and they had 3 AMAZING ice bars made by Don Chapelle of Brilliant Ice Sculpture. The food was outstanding. My personal favorites were: grilled cheese and pulled beef with pickled shallots sandwich, the braised pork taco with pico de gallo, souther slaw and chipotle avocado drizzle, and the chicken thigh BLT with tomato jam on brioche. For dessert they had fresh warm chocolate chip cookies with vanilla ice cream, warm fudge, fresh berries and whip cream. It was DIVINE! My favorite thing to photograph was definitely the Bellini bar. The ice bar had bubbles in it to compliment the champagne, and they had sparkling apple cider for those of us choosing not to drink at the event. Not only was it a dream to photograph, it was sooooo yummy. I had them concoct a mix of raspberry and peach for me with a spalsh of the sparkling apple cider. MMMM MMMM GOOD! If you are looking for a great place to hold an event for 160 people or less in Boston that has wonderful staff to work with, is in a fabulous location, and has wonderful views and food, the Harborview Ballroom at the Marriott Long Wharf is an excellent option!
