My husband and I were both really drawn to the Boylston Rooms. The inside of the building has been redone and the rooms we used for our ceremony and reception are absolutely beautiful—industrial and nostalgic but at the same time very elegant and modern. Aside from how beautiful the space is, we really ultimately chose this venue for one reason: Erin Witmer, the owner and manager. Planning a wedding can be a long and stressful process, and every time I interacted with Erin in the year leading up to our wedding, she just gave off this sense of calm and that really helped me in managing my stress. We felt that she truly had our best interest at heart and she cared about us, our guests, and our vision for the day. We got married in January, and in the week leading up to the wedding the weather forecast for the big day kept getting worse and worse, with 1-2 feet of snow and ice being predicted!! I was completely losing my mind with stress, and Erin and our planner worked with us to make some last minute changes to the plan that ended up really saving the day. Like REALLY saved it. I would recommend the Boylston Rooms to anyone!! -Emi and Andy
We could not have picked a more perfect venue than the Boylston Rooms for our wedding day. The blank canvas allows you to be in control of your own vision and the raw architecture in and of itself is simply exquisite. But like many other reviewers have stated previously, the reason this venue is the absolute best is all because of Erin, the event coordinator. She made every single request come true. All the stress from months of planning completely melted away when I saw my vision come to life the morning of our wedding. We have zero regrets and we owe that to Erin. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts!! It was the best day of our lives.
Erin (the owner and director of the Boylston Rooms) is absolutely amazing! I wouldn’t say that I’m the easiest to work with when it comes to party planning, but she answers every question and made every idea I can up with possible.... along with being the wedding planner of your dreams, she also has a heart of gold!!! You don’t meet many people as genuine as her anymore. I won’t forget when I was having a bridal mental breakdown about finances and wondering what I had gotten myself into haha, I called Erin. Instead of her trying to talk me into staying with her venue and taking as much as she could (with cocktail hour I had planned, extra lighting and such) she told me to stop, think and breath. She told me to focus what’s on what’s most important (the photographer, my dress and having my whole family there) and didn’t think once about herself and how much she could get from me.... she’s hands down amazing. And once all was said and done, she did above and beyond what I thought she would. My wedding day was smooth and effortless. -Diona
I cannot even begin to describe how amazing our experience was having our reception at The Boylston Rooms! We arrived at the bridal suite, and there was a bottle of my favorite champagne--I had never mentioned this. She just knew I guess. During the reception, I had a bottle of water that was replaced about an hour later with a new, colder bottle of water. Some children in our party would not eat anything that we served--Erin got them special meals and made things so much easier for their dad, me, and my husband. Erin is personable, reliable, and wants to go above and beyond (Napkins shaped like flowers? Help me keep multiple potted plants alive? No problem when you have Erin to work with!). Our guests were very impressed with the historic architecture and modern decor. Definitely worth visiting for your next event! I'm sure we will be hosting another event here in time! -Liz
I can't even begin to describe how amazing our wedding rehearsal, ceremony, and reception were. If I could give more than five stars I would. The rooms themselves are beautiful and amazing, along with the cozy bridal suite. I didn't even mind being in the suite all day because of all of the special touches. I'd have to say one of the best parts by far about our wedding was working with Erin. She truly goes above and beyond in every aspect, I could fill a book with all the ways that she helped not only me but my family, bridal party and guests as well. She was accommodating, flexible, communicative, friendly, ridiculously hardworking and truly caring. She would give you the shoes off her feet to make you comfortable. I am sad that our wedding day is over but so so so happy we held it here.
I've never dealt with someone who's as relaxed and easy to work with as Erin. She helped to make this entire wedding experience WAY less stressful than I thought it was going to be. She was more than happy to communicate with my other vendors and was there ALL day the day of for decorating assistance and overall moral support. The best most unexpected part of this day for me was the bridal suite. It is a huge suite and had plenty of room for a large bridal party. It also has a private bathroom which was also great for during the reception. Erin also stocked the fridge for us with champagne and if you forgot things there was all the necessities such as a sewing kit, bandaids, water bottles, and other random stuff you don't want to be thinking of on your wedding day. Myers was also fantastic and everyone loved all of our food! Overall I couldn't be happier that we decide to go with this location for our Wedding Reception!!!!! -Audrey
