The Newbury Boston Hotel
Set at the city's most sought-after address, One Newbury Street. The Newbury is located in the heart of Boston's premier shopping and dining district, the Back Bay, just across the street from The Boston Public Garden. The iconic landmark building, which debuted in 1927 as one of the first Ritz Carlton hotels in the US has been thoughtfully transformed into a 286-room luxury hotel, with multiple dining experiences and event spaces. Acclaimed design firm Champalimaud Design has led the renovation of the hotel’s guest rooms, while celebrated architecture firm Jeffrey Beers International has conceived the building’s new entrance and public spaces. Major Food Group is behind the hotel’s food & beverage offerings, including The Street Bar, elegant event spaces, and a rooftop restaurant, Contessa. Designed by Ken Fulk, Contessa serves breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner with sweeping views of the Boston Common from a glass enclosure that slides open during the warmer months, as well as an Italian menu by Chefs Mario Carbone and Rich Torrisi.

Joseph Lotz
I'm a documentarian at heart and I love telling stories. Telling love stories is a feeling unlike any other. It isn't lost on me to realize the importance and what a privilege it is to be trusted with the job of artfully capturing memories of the most important day of your life. Having been in the wedding industry going on 7 years now, I've come into my own way of making films and allowing everything to organically unfold throughout the wedding day.

Founded in 1913, Sunset Club's history is deeply intertwined with Seattle's own history, traditions and culture. It is believed to be one of the first such institutions created on the North American West Coast: an invitational social organization for and by women, committed to advancing the cultural, educational and social wellbeing of its members and community. Sunset Club continues today as the place for the women of Seattle to engage in intellectual programs, fellowship and fine entertaining. The Club continues to evolve to meet the needs of current and future members, while maintaining its heritage as a place of gracious elegance.
