THE DETAILS

Real Events

A Long-Awaited Downtown Boston Wedding | State Room

Years ago, two friends looked at the State Room in awe and vowed to each other that one day, someday, they’d attend a wedding there.  At the time, they didn’t realize that wedding would be their very own.

A Gala that Gives Back | State Room

This national nonprofit with an amazing cause turned to the State Room to make their signature fundraising event as impactful as it is magical.

A Festive & Fun Company Holiday Party | State Room

When it came the time to plan their annual holiday party, this Boston-based company had ample options for where celebrate, but Longwood’s experience and ability to bring fresh and trendy ideas to the table had Putnam Associates going with the State Room for the second year.
