A beautiful, intimate micro-wedding brings out the best of the 2020 wedding season in Sudbury, MA
We held our wedding reception at the Exchange in early June and had an amazing experience. Lauren and the staff couldn’t have been more accommodating. From running to the dry cleaners (Dependable Cleaners) to get my veil steamed the day of in a mini-emergency, to flawlessly executing my ideas for décor and presentation and checking in throughout the entire night, we couldn’t have been more pleased! The food is AMAZING; so fresh and well prepared to our liking! Not to mention the beautiful scenery!!!
We can’t say enough great things about using Meritage Entertainment to DJ your wedding. We were very lucky to have DJ Dan for our wedding, who kept people on the dance floor the ENTIRE night and did a phenomenal job capturing our tastes in music. So many people told us that they couldn’t get a break from the dance floor because they didn’t want to miss any of the bangers that Dan was mixing in. Two of my groomsmen split their pants down the middle because of what Dan’s music inspired them to do on the dance floor. Everything was extremely well run and professional. Do yourself a favor and book Meritage for your wedding!!
Working with Arlene, the owner of Invitations & Company, was one of the highlights of our wedding planning process. She had amazing advice and ideas throughout the design process, as well as answers to all of our etiquette and logistical questions….Most importantly, she was always “on our side”, reminding us that at the end of the day, it was our wedding so we could do anything we wanted to….Overall, our experience with Invitations & Company was an eleven out of ten, and we will hands down be working with Arlene again for any future stationery needs.
My wedding was June 7, 2018 and we had Dan Campbell as our DJ with his wife Julie doing the uplighting. I can’t say enough good things about them! He had so much positive energy and excitement in his voice and was committed to making our wedding the perfect day for the both of us. He listened to everything we had to say and also gave us some great advice and tips on how to make the most of the dance floor. The music was absolutely perfect. He read the crowd and made sure he got everyone on the dance floor enjoying themselves. I still have people talking about what an amazing job he did. We wish we could relive the whole night over!
DJ Evan did an amazing job keeping our wedding reception running smoothly and playing an incredibly diverse and energetic mix that brought every one to the dance floor. We were really worried about choosing the right DJ because our day wedding consisted of a diverse mix of Irish and Chinese cultures with half the crowd being over the age of 60 and the rest being in their early 30s. However, Evan absolutely nailed it with a mix of motown, contemporary, and Irish crowd pleasers. He knew how to read the crowd and work in our list of must plays in a smooth way. Our guests raved about the playlist and the wait staff said that it was one of the most fun receptions they have ever worked.
We had both our ceremony and reception at The Exchange one month ago! If you are looking for a unique, upscale and memorable wedding venue in Boston, this is the ONE. It is an absolutely gorgeous venue and on your wedding day, it looks even better! Michele and Alanna and their entire team are amazing. The food is extremely high quality….Our guests have told us they ate more at our wedding than any other they have attended….You will NOT get a better view in Boston. You are literally right on the harbor. You don’t need to decorate much at all.
I wish we could give Meritage more than 5 stars because 5 just does not do them justice. We cannot say enough positive things about our experience with Meritage. We left everything up to James and it was the best decision we could’ve made. Our guests were dancing the ENTIRE night – even elderly family members who have trouble walking. James did such an amazing job picking songs that kept everyone dancing without anyone losing interest. James completely exceeded our expectations, and I really think if we had a different DJ, our wedding would’ve been completely different and not nearly as fun.
We used Arlene at Invitations & Company to do our wedding invitation set. She was extremely friendly and a pleasure to work with throughout our several visits in the process. The wedding invites turned out absolutely great, just exactly how we wanted them, and we got tons of compliments from our guests on how wonderful they looked. We also used her envelope address printing services and everything turned out perfectly without any issues.
We had the pleasure of having Dave DJ our wedding at Wychmere in late August of this year. Dave fulfilled all of our requests to the T. The before-hand planning was so simple with the 5 Star website, and Dave brought truly professional, unique suggestions that made a big difference at the reception. The way that he was able to blend our traditional Greek dancing with the modern Dance/Pop songs that we had asked for was awesome. Our biggest compliment from guests at our wedding were the fact that the dance floor was crowded and the life of the party throughout the event. 100% will recommend to friends & family in the area for any event.
Arlene is incredible – she made the invitation process an absolute joy! She attentively listened to what I had in mind and showed me numerous examples to help me further figure out my stylistic preferences….However, more than anything else, what sets Arlene apart is her years of experience and attention to even the tinniest detail. I feel so lucky that we found her and I’m already trying to think of future opportunities when we might be able to work with her again!
I cannot begin to express what a joy it was to work with Arlene and Invitations & Company! After leaving an invitation store at a local mall in a panic because the sales associate could not understand my order, I remembered that a friend had given me Arlene’s name and from my first email exchange with her, it was as if a weight had been lifted from my shoulders! She is kind, creative, flexible (somehow managing to perfectly handle this entire order through only email exchanges since we do not live in the Boston area), accommodating, encouraging…I could go on and on!
Dave was absolutely awesome at our wedding! He was great during the whole planning process and answered any questions we had. We made a special request for a 90’s/early 00’s montage and Dave had the whole place dancing and singing along. I’ll admit I’m a bit picky about music, and we added a ton of songs we wanted to here throughout the night. We were able to specify what songs we wanted during cocktail hour, dinner, or reception and choose which songs for the montage. Dave was receptive to all of it and everyone loved the music!
