The Dane Estate

There are beautiful mansions and private estates throughout New England, but there are very few this close and convenient to the city of Boston. The Dane Estate at Pine Manor College is a great location to consider for your wedding or next special event. This Chestnut Hill gem has a cozy interior with interesting and beautiful architectural details.  The lawn is private, lush and quiet! This is really a charming, welcoming and wonderful venue for music lovers, academics and city folks who are looking for more space, competitive pricing, indoor, outdoor & tented options and warm hospitality.

If you're interested in availability, pricing or a tour, please get in touch. I am happy to help or introduce you to their team directly.

Harvard Club- Downtown Location

I attended an event at the Harvard Club's Downtown Clubhouse last month and was impressed by the delicious and interesting food, the attentive staff, but the views were absolutely incredible. It was a rainy overcast evening, until the sun came out and provided a rainbow! Well done Harvard Club. 

Incase you missed yesterday's post, there are pictures from the Harvard Club's Back Bay Clubhouse here.

I look forward to planning events at both locations! Do reach out with questions or interest in either.

From NYC to the North Shore

It's been an exciting summer already, a great combination of work hard, play hard. I've had wonderful opportunities to help planner friends coordinate weddings. The New York Historical Society is a stunner and has so many backdrops all under one roof.  Turner Hill in Ipswich, Massachusetts is a mansion of intricate details that rests on beautifully manicured grounds.

In my efforts to embrace New England and all it's treasures, I've been participating in wedding events. The first one was close to home and hosted by the wonderful team at Willowdale Estate in Topsfield, MA. Willowdale is charming and enchanting and I love it a little more each time I visit.

Then I took things on the road and on the ferry and participated in the Block Island Wedding Show hosted by The Sullivan House on Block Island. It was a beautiful day and the views from this property that is surrounded by water are amazing!! Have you been to Block Island? I highly recommend it! Both venues hosted high-quality events creating wonderful atmospheres and environments to connect with newly engaged couples and chat with like minded vendors.

Most recently was The Big Fake Wedding at Colonial Hall at Rockafellas in Salem, Massachusetts. I got to get creative and designed three tables and participated in their Tunnel of Love. I love interesting and unique strategies to market my business and this was both at a great venue, a gorgeous bride and so many talented vendors!

Rick and I celebrated out 3rd wedding anniversary with a sailboat ride that left from quaint and bustling Marblehead, MA. We enjoyed the sunset and fireworks from the water thanks to Captain Allan and his first mate who shared their 4th of July with us!

There is much goodness in the works for Tammy Golson Events and I am so grateful to those who have been supporting me and encouraging me along the way, as I continue to grow my business in New England. 

How's your summer going so far? 

Have a great weekend!

Weddings at Willowdale Estate


We were so thrilled to partake in the festivities at Willowdale Estate recently. This historic North Shore gem hosted a lovely and inviting evening for their couples and others who expressed interest in seeing their beautiful space and meeting some of Boston's best wedding vendors. We were in excellent company and so very honored that Willowdale extended us this special opportunity to showcase our work and meet and greet many wonderful couples and families. The evening went by  fast and was so much fun.

Thanks to my team: Lauren, Christina, Maddie, Christian and Lindsey, you guys were all amazing! I could not have done this without your help in advance and on the day!

To Monique and the entire team at Willowdale Estate, wow. The space looked so elegant and absolutely enchanting. You created such a warm and welcoming atmosphere for everyone to enjoy.

To my fellow vendors and friends, I enjoyed seeing your work up close. I just wish we had more time to chat!  I look forward to working with many of you very soon!

To the couples and their families who stopped by our table, thank you! I sincerely appreciate your interest in our business and services. I loved meeting you-- and chatting briefly. Hope we will have more time to get better acquainted in the future. I look forward to hearing about your wedding and how the planning process is going. I am happy to extend the one hour complimentary wedding planning and coordination consultations through 7/17/17.

Have a great week!

Relevant Workshop in Maine

 A few weeks ago, I had the great privilege of attending my first Relevant Workshop in Maine. I was in good company. This workshop was tailored to talented, motivated and dynamic wedding professionals.  We gathered for a full day of listening to amazing speakers, learning relevant content and networking with wonderful individuals. I was quick to pull the trigger to register and was happy my decision was soon confirmed by a friend who attended last year. I arrived with high expectations and they were exceeded. It was a delicious day! My business, soul and belly all left nourished and satisfied.

The William Allen Farm in Pownall, Maine was the perfect home for this retreat. They host weddings, too. It was a great opportunity for me to experience it as a guests. The barn has been beautifully finished, I'd happily welcome an opportunity to  refer this venue to a client and work here in the future.
 The farm tables, complementing chairs and patterned runners from Savvy Event Rental created a warm and inviting atmosphere for us to get cozy in and absorb all the goodness that was bestowed upon us.

Brea McDonald and Meg Simone, our perfect hosts, did an amazing job planning, organizing and coordinating this day. They kept us engaged, on schedule and well fed all day long. This is no easy feat and they did it with sincere warmth, enthusiasm, gratitude and generosity!

We thank and love Maker's Mug  for caffeinating us early in the day. Their chai was delicious!  Planning a sunrise ceremony or brunch wedding? Maker's Mug would be an excellent accompaniment. The White Apron's breakfast was delicious, too. 

Maria Northcott started off the day of talks and her message of community over competition and insisting that there are enough weddings to go around was an excellent message for others to build upon. Maria, I couldn't agree more and appreciate you saying it, believing it and living it. I trust your couples get a great ceremony and I look forward to working with you in the future, hopefully before long. If you're planning a ceremony, or new to the wedding scene in Maine, I'd recommend you get in touch with Maria!

 Nice interior glimpse into the barn as we all listen intently. 

 Meg and Brian are as smart as they are darling--- I hope they don't mind me using that adjective, but I loved being in their presence and felt like their message was directed to me. They are the brains behind Two Pines Creatives and I can't wait to implement what I learned about SEO and more!

Lunch was made from this awesome ol' truck. The folks of Fire & Co. Wood Fire Catering served an excellent salad and delicious pizzas!

After lunch we reconvened into small groups, the table talk I chose was hosted by Kate Martin of Beautiful Days. I loved the conversation she led and inspired with a great group of wedding planners, photographers, florists, bakers and more.

Courtney Wetzel is Blush, Bridal & Formal. She created quite the bridal empire in Maine. Her story was motivating and she offered many take aways in terms of how to market to millennials and grow your business.

 What is your why? I really appreciate how Nadra Edgerley got personal and shared her story that led to her why and how in inspired many, me included to consider and share our own whys. Why we do what we do, what motivates us and more.

 Met so many great people, happy to share a drink and a table with these two film makers. Bryan and Jamie, I look forward to working with you both-- hopefully sooner!

The day was complete thanks to the tunes provided by DJ Jon!

The Old 37 quenched our thirst before we headed home providing beer and wine by yet another excellent vehicle. 

Obviously Meg and Brea did not work alone, but their passion, effort and commitment to the quality of this event was undeniable! And what a team they partnered with! The speakers' content was brilliant,  menus' delicious and productivity of the day was excellent. Thanks so much making our investment of time and resources worthwhile and thank you to the sponsors who made it a fun and decadent day!

Special thanks to Lisa my friend and neighbor and the gifted artist making beautiful wedding films at Next Level Films. I was so happy to share this road trip and experience with her!
