Beautiful Bridal Attendants

As I was walking through the lobby on New Year's Eve, I noticed these four beautiful young women who were obviously waiting for 'their' bride. I asked if I could blog them, and they happily agreed.

I hope you enjoy this candid look at the lobby and life of the Hawthorne Hotel.

Dull, dull, dull.

My last post for 2008 (how did the year pass so quickly?).
Yes I know, no sappy Christmas post or anything like's just not me. And I was too busy having fun to bother.
Whatever, I thought we should put up at least one semi-recent picture. Here it is, Ozie managed to capture the more pensive side of me without me knowing.
I rather like it.

Winter Wedding Wonderland

Yesterday we had a lovely wedding here at the Hawthorne Hotel, right in the middle of the first blizzard of the year. The bride and groom looked spectacular, as did the decor. I hope you enjoy getting a peek at their special day.

Michele and Jason

We hope to see you here.

I am sorry, really I am. Blogging has been the farthest thing from my mind this past month. if you only knew....hahaha all the crazy stuff.
My brother coming here, (man that totally rocked), bad news, good news, more bad news, satisfactions, cake layers, (when's the famous cerry getting here?) school, the rain in spain stays mainly in the plain, (seriously though, it's been to much rain for spain), psyched out ppl into exams, (thank God that's over), and maybe maybe maybe something really cool around the corner, that just might happen, (stop squeezing my arm Ozie).
So yeah, imagine all that.
Believe it or not I don't have a single picture to document all this psychoness, and that sucks.
All I have to say is this: Katarina, will you marry me?

Here is a link to this website. There are a number of reviews by writers who had their weddings here at the Hawthorne Hotel. We thought you might enjoy reading their comments about their weddings.

We hope this is helpful to you.

Unusual Elements Add to the Special Flavor of Kelli and Brendan's Wedding


Here in the first photo you see Kelli holding the Memory Board that her guests will sign as they arrive at the reception after her wedding here at the Hawthorne Hotel tonight. She included our Hawthorne Hotel Winter Postcard as the centerpiece of her memory board, a sweet touch that made us smile!

We also love the favors that she made, seen in the second photo. They are so cute.

The final photo is of her wedding program, which also includes the same image as her memory board, of the Hawthorne Hotel in a winter greens wreath. A perfect touch to tie things all together.

Thanks for sharing your nice ideas with the Hawthorne Hotel Wedding Blog audience, Kelli. We are happy to be a part of your life.

Juli (and Christine, and the TEAM of the Hawthorne Hotel)
