LONGWOOD unveils Alden Castle, a stunning Modern Vintage reception venue.
Boston, Mass. (January 11, 2012) – LONGWOOD, a trendsetting lifestyle and events company, has unveiled its newest event space, Alden Castle, in the exclusive Longwood Towers of Boston. Alden Castle will host high-end wedding receptions and other family celebrations, and has already committed to 2013 dates.
“Brides have been pleading for a vintage venue. Up to this day, Boston brides had to choose between old and tired or totally sleek. Now they have modern vintage – respecting the old yet being design-forward. Our Brides are very well travelled, often with European background – they love design and they appreciate a well-executed mix of old and new.” said LONGWOOD CEO Jim Apteker.
Alden Castle’s exterior retains stunning red brick Tudor look, associated with most upscale London neighborhoods. Inside are two glamorous spaces, with separate entrances, cocktail lounges, balconies overlooking the dance floors. The Vintage, boasts seven stunning chandeliers from Spanish design house Becara, silk champagne draperies and over-scaled mirrors to complement the dramatic floor to ceiling windows and rich architectural detailing. The Modern, with its ornate, gold-leafed ceiling, almost-black wood casings, and crisp white walls sparkles in the light of Italian glass chandeliers and carries royal signatures of coats of arms and life-sized peacocks. Vintage style is timeless with Brides due to its romance and nostalgia. The upcoming 1st anniversary of the royal wedding further proves its longevity.
Brides holding their wedding receptions at Alden Castle will feast on celebrity chef David Blessing’s cuisine. Chef Blessing’s simple plate designs and focus on local ingredients brought him to fame while at Four Seasons Hotels for over 13 years.
