Hi Jen,

I am going to compile all of the emails, texts, letters and phone messages I’ve received about Saturday night. It will definitely go down in Boston event lore as the BEST. PARTY. EVER! and not just from me.

Dear Jen,

Thanks again for all that you did to make our wedding weekend the most special, enjoyable and warm weekend of my life. Everything about it was all that I hoped for and more – it was big and small. And of of the best surprises was our friendship.

Dear Jen,

Its been over six months since our wedding plus several weeks, and I’m not entirely sure I ever wrote a proper thank you. Honestly Jen, June 11, 2011 was like a dream….everything leading up to the ceremony and celebration was just flawless, and everything I wished for (and then some!). I’ve been especially reminded of how special each detail was as I’ve gone through the photos over the last few weeks and recalled the festivities with our family and friends. So thank you for everything you did to orchestrate and deliver the most beautiful and perfect party ever.

But what makes all of the memories so special is know that I was working with a great friend through it all. You honestly went so above and beyond the call of duty… not once blanching or suggesting to push back. Although on more than one occasion you definitely led me down a calmer and more appropriate path. When I look at the photos, pulling together images to remember, I keep looking for more of you!”

Dear Jen and Liz,

You did an amazing job! The party was a memorable event. All the guests loved it, they kept giving me compliments about the invitations, the decor, the food, the music.... . I can not emphasize how grateful I am. You planned the most outstanding party in the toughest conditions possible. You literally impressed everyone by your professionalism, your optimism and your resilience. It was a pleasure to work with you and I hope to team up with you again in the up coming years. I wish you a well deserved rest! A thousand thanks.

Dear Jen,

Can’t thank you enough for the fabulous job at our holiday party. The Epicenter looked absolutely amazing – the best I’ve ever seen it, the music was perfect and the D.J. not too bad to look at! Throughout the night and days later, people kept commenting on how much fun they had. Thank you for being involved and making our biggest company party to date also the most wonderful!!! Happy, Happy New Year!
