Resources & Partners

This page is a forever changing page. As I meet service providers I think my couples will like and be taken care of by, I will add resources.

If you are a local North of Boston or North Shore business serving the life journeys and weddings market that we work with or have worked with please contact us and we will add you to this list.

Business Organizations

The House of the Seven Gables
This is the house featured in Nathaniel Hawthorne’s book of the same name. Gorgeous property along Salem Harbor. Large back yard for receptions. Wedding ceremonies are held in back of the Hooper Hathaway House where wedding parties gather before and after the ceremony. Deb Costa is the event manager at the Gables and is so terrific to work with.

Historic New England
Wedding ceremonies are also fun and different when you chose from the numerous historic properties in New England. Historic New England hosts wedding ceremonies at beautiful Beauport, the Sleeper-McCann House, overlooking Gloucester Harbor in Gloucester, Massachusetts. Beauport was the summer home of one of America’s first professional interior designers, Henry Davis Sleeper. Perched on a rock ledge overlooking Gloucester Harbor, Beauport became Sleeper’s retreat, backdrop for entertaining, professional showcase, and an inspiration to all who visited.

Peabody Essex Museum
The beautiful Peabody Essex Museum, in Salem, Massachusetts, is one of the region’s most exquisite settings for your special events. For detailed information on locations, pricing and related services, please contact the functions staff at 978-542-1615, or e-mail Natalia Laskaris functions@pem.org. Natalia is really great to work with!

Colonial Hall at Rockafellas
This venue is in the heart of downtown Salem, MA! In the past it was a church, a bank and the largest jewelry store in the country and is truly a cornerstone of Salem history. As a jewelry store I ordered my own silver and china patterns here! This grand ballroom with vaulted ceilings, gleaming hardwood floors and beautiful balconies is a great setting for a special occasion. Contact Michelle for more information!

Photographers

Hitched Studios
I met Tara at a wedding she did at the Boston Harbor Hotel. A fun women and takes great shots with local backdrops and locations. As their website says….”We provide honest, gorgeous, candid story telling of your wedding day.  Our complimentary styles of photography combined with our artistry, sense of humor, and genuine love of people bring you photographs that are candid without being obtrusive and formal without being pretentious… and always fun.” That is for sure! Check them out.

Lightshed Studios
This photo studio is located on Washington Street in downtown Salem.

Louise Michaud Photography
Louise is an incredible professional with many photography awards. She is located in Salem, MA. Louise captures those little moments that mean a lot.

Caterers

Off the Vine Catering
Outdoor receptions are lots of fun! How a caterer or any vendor reacts during a rain storm, or weather situation is worth its weight in gold! These folks are incredibly professional and at a recent wedding that turned rainy their professionalism and grace shone through like bright rays of sunshine! The food was really good. Main courses served were piping hot and so yummy.

Wedding Planners

The Day Of
Michelle Shaufeld is fun, witty and incredibly creative. I had never worked with a wedding planner before and I certainly would work with her again! She is incredibly organized and will make sure your special day runs like clockwork!

Thumbtack
A service for booking wedding services. This is a bid service. Not everyone who answers your bid is a Massachusetts minister. Remember that to get married in Massachusetts your officiant must reside here. If they do not then they must get a one day license from the state and they can only do this one time per year.
