    We loved so much about this party. A dance floor that looked like an ice skating rink. Lounge vinettes for relaxing and chatting. Desserts that delighted. My only regret was that I was not a guest. Occupational hazard as you can imagine.

    Maybe its because its my birthday season or maybe because harvest decor reminds us of what mother earth creates naturally,  but I just love Autumn themed parties.

    Jess and Jamaal are two if the funniest people I have every met. Therefore, planning their wedding was one of the best planning processes I have ever had. Never a dull movement is how they roll, so it was in order to plan a wedding that spoke to the dynamic personality of this couple. Fun, fun, fun, and that is just what we did. Surprises around every corner. A catamaran water adventure to cocktails against the backdrop of the Key West sunset. DJ music that moves your heart, soul and and booty to a  cultural Junaknoo marching band performance. Cardboard cutouts of a couple that just couldn’t sit still for formal photography and a underlying tone of true love that permeated all of the guest’s experiences. The loved shared by Jess and Jamaal reminded their guests that the reason they traveled so far was to unite two families and celebrate the union to it fullest. Good stuff.. rea col 1collage

    Oh and did I mention that the event ended with all the guests chanting my name…yup…it was one of the best moments of my career. A big thanks to Jess, Jamaal and all of their wonderful peeps for an event to remember….

    This event was so much fun to collaborate on. Dan Mathieu from MAX Ultimate Food really knows how to throw a party. Especially one with surprises designed around fresh exciting food courses. Harrington Events had the pleasure of designing tasteful man candy for a 50 Shades of Gray 50th birthday theme. Also performing, the timeless glamour and TALENT of The Pointer Sisters and the loving life comedy of Paul Reiser. For the finale a pair of lovely ladies dressed in bondage created a fun a photo opportunity. Oh and don’t forget the gaggle of drag queens who graciously helped heat up the dance floor and sing happy birthday to the guest of honor.

    I LOVE this Halloween Party. We brought some of the most notorious celebrities, back from the DEAD, to mix, mingle and cut a rug with guests. Michael Jackson, Whitney Huston, Lucy and Ricky, Johnny Cash, Liberace, Janis Joplin, Jimmy Hendrix, Jim Jones, Andy Worhol, Judy Garland and more! Highlights of the night were the Zombie Apocalypse, Michael Jackson’s Thriller performance and the guests themselves! Everyone had a blast. Oh, and forget DJ Ken’s Rick James costume, DEAD sexy.

    Harrington Events had a blast of planning Amanda and Chris’s Wedding at the RIU resort in Negril, Jamaica. This couple wanted to create memories with their friends and family. They chose a great resort, and invited everyone to spend a few days celebrating friendship and love, (and of course Jamaican Rum!) Isn’t Amanda’s daddy the cutest?Amanda and Chris Jamaica

    Jennifer and Matthew fell in love in Mexico: with each other and its culture. So when it came to making design choices for their wedding, they couldn’t resist making their wedding a fiesta to remember. Located at Silver Lake Conference Center and retreat, Harrington Events was tasked with transforming the summer camp facilities into a formal wedding venue. With their work cut out for them, the team rolled up their sleeves and created an event space fit for a formal affair.

    Kellian and Brian wanted an event that stood the test of time! They are both swing dance instructors, with a passion for the 1940’s. It was only fitting that their wedding showcase their love for each other and the era. Thanks to the timeless elegance of the Peabody Essex Museum the event was a swinging success!

    Jennifer’s shower was a blast to plan! Held at Chianti Tuscan Restaurant and Jazz Lounge. Her bridal party wanted to create an event that coupled three of Jennifer’s favorite things; world cultures, hors d’oeuvres and girl time! By electing a Mediterranean theme we were able to create a menu that included tapas style foods. Served on a low Moroccan style table, the food station became the focal point of the decor and encouraged the guests to lounge and enjoy!

    Asher’s naming brought together families of Christian and Jewish traditions. It was only fitting that the menu be filled with home-style family recipes from both heritages.  Bagels and lox, tuna salad and pastrami mingled with devil dogs, pasta salad and sour cream and onion dip, mmmmmmmm! The guest were reminded of their own childhood while celebrating the life of the new addition Asher Maurice “Pincheas” Stern.
