I love the BBC (British Beer Company)…they have a bunch of locations but my favorite in on the cape. If you like brie, you have to get their bakd brie appetizer, so yummy!

I had Seth Isaacs from Beat Train and he was great! I would really recommend them to anyone. My husband and I have a pretty eclectic taste in music and we gave him a few songs that were “Must Play” and he was able to build a playlist which we loved. I can honestly say that the only time the dance floor was slow was when dessert was served. But after that, the dance floor was busy the whole night which was wonderful since our wedding was pretty small with only 80 people.
Seth read the crowd really well and just played one great song after another. As evidence, here are some pics from the middle of the night where my VERY traditional Asian family completely let loose. Seth got people from ALL ages dancing – ranging from a little 7 year old to my husband’s 92 year old grandmother.
My uncle with my husband’s grandmother. They had just met the night before at the rehearsal dinner but I love this pic.
My new sister-in-law with my grandmother. This was pretty much they’re hello introduction.

We also used Seth from Beat Train, and I have to say that they were, by far, the best vendor that we used…so professional, and Seth (and Ari) really took the time to listen to what we were looking for regarding music at our wedding. I cannot recommend them enough! 🙂

I got married in New Husband but a few of my vendors are from or do serve the Boston-area! Here they are:
Photographer: HinkleyPhoto (http://www.hinkleyphoto.com) is an AMAZING husband and wife team who are two of the most fun and nicest people I’ve met yet. They had a sneak peek of our wedding photos up in their blog less than 2 days after our wedding. Feel free to take a look: http://www.hinkleyphotoblog.com/index.cfm?postID=279&admin=9C7E0EFA-5425-42BE-990C20717C1B9698
DJ, Ceremony and Cocktail Musician: Aaron Denny (http://www.aarondenny.com) – Aaron does it ALL for a really reasonable price. He played guitar during our ceremony and cocktail hour and then was our DJ for the reception We had soooo many of our guests come up to us to say Aaron is the best DJ they have ever heard.
Hair & Makeup: Caitlin Murphy (http://www.caitlinmurphystylist): I was soooo psyched to get Caitlin for our wedding because she really has a name for herself in the Boston area. I actually started crying when I looked in the mirror because I have never felt so beautiful in my whole life. She is the sweetest and kindest person you’ll meet and it was such a blessing to have her calming and enthusiastic attitude there on my wedding day.
I wanted to post some photos to show the awesome-ness (is that a word? LOL) of my photographers and my stylist!!! All photos courtesy of HinkleyPhoto except for the last one which was taken by a friend but I had to post cause it really shows my amazing up do that Caitlin gave me!!
