Wishing Everyone a Very Happy Holiday!

Everyone here at Marrero Events would like to wish you all a very happy, safe and wonderful holiday season filled with bits of magic everywhere!

Winter Wonderland Holiday Party

Duffy11

 

Each year we are lucky to end our “season” by planning one of the most elegant events all year!  Our client hosts this annual party for their corporation and employees, and it is THE party of the season north of Boston!    The guests arrive to a private location where they are shuttled up to the main residence.  As they enter the residence, guests are greeted with an array of colorful and refreshing holiday cocktails as they enjoy the elegant decor designed by the Host’s wife, a fabulous interior designer.

We pamper the guests and they are offered nearly 20 passed appetizers, two interactive entree stations and a dessert station second to none!  This party leaves everyone in the holiday spirit each year and if you don’t believe me, take a look and tell me what you think!  Enjoy …..  and happy holidays to everyone!

Wisam and Jack | Crane Estate, Ipswich

Ahhh ….  Wisam and Jack … what an amazing couple!

Planning their entire wedding from across the country in Seattle made for a lot of fun phone calls indeed!  This adorable couple knew exactly what they wanted and, more importantly, what they did not!   With a fall wedding on the gorgeous grounds of the Crane Estate, the bride showed up looking absolutely glamorous in part due to the ladies at Demiche!  The ceremony on the grand allee was breathtaking, albeit a bit chilly for October, and the beauty that was created indoors by the talented Karla Cassidy Designs took everyone’s breath away!   Lauren of Person and Killian was onsite the entire day, capturing every special moment of this couple’s reception and, as always, made the day even more special by making sure each detail was perfect before shooting!  The customized menu created by Capers Catering featured pan seared salmon with butternut squash and tender braised shortribs.  After dinner, guests were invited to join the couple for their first dance in the Estate’s Ballroom where they were able to enjoy a photobooth by Shutterbooth Boston, a belly dancing performance and danced the night away to music with C Zone’s Greg Capozzi!   Following dinner, Capers Catering set out a themed candy station and their infamous milkshake shooters with homemade chocolate oreos were the hit of the evening!

Jenny’s Wedding Cakes created an elegant cake as always that tasted even better than it looked.

This couple has a lot to be thankful for … and I am thankful to them for allowing me to be part of such an amazing journey.  Happily ever after to you Wisam and Jack!
