My photographer has shot a lot of weddings at Oleana…. (good luck with the dram, we’ve managed to keep our wedding to 80 people by sheer willpower)

I am not from Boston, so I can’t help with that. I just wanted to say that I really want to do a restaurant wedding instead of a full blown reception. We initially gave in to the “add so and so” stuff, and it wasn’t what either of us really wanted. After some venue mishaps, we put our foot down and said that we were only inviting 50. Done. Our friends completely agree, but yeah, family doesn’t really understand why we won’t want to have a big reunion or something. I hope yours comes around to be more understanding! Good luck.

We are having ours at the Lyceum in Salem MA.  It can hold up to 100 people in a private upstairs dining room.  It is amazing inside, you should def take a look!  http://www.thelyceum.com/

We had our wedding at UpStairs on the Square just a few weeks ago and loved it.  We had about 120 people and used the Zebra Room and Monday Bar (the full downstairs).  It is possible to do just the Soiree Dining Room upstairs as well, or you can rent out the whole restaurant.  We were able to be very creative with our reception and were able to design the menu, floor plan, and incorporate a lot of little details that really mattered to us.


We also looked into Les Zygs in our initial search, but they weren’t as flexible with the menu (we wanted to have a Chicago-Style Hot Dog Bar (which UpStairs accommodated)).  The options at Les Zygs were really appealing though.


Our 3rd restaurant was Vinalia in Downtown Crossing.  They were also great to work with, but we didn’t pursue it further because the restaurant was going to start a renovation and the color scheme of the restaurant hadn’t been determined yet (and color was really important to our overall look/theme).

The Venezia in Dorchester is gorgeous, and has amazing food. I’ve never been to a wedding there, but I know of others who have had theirs there and were really happy.

I’ll be shooting two small weddings over the next couple of months–one at Upstairs on the Square, and one right across the way at Om. So excited for both!
