Seaport Boston unveils Green Wedding Package as its latest environmentally friendly initiative
Seaport Boston, comprised of theSeaport Hotel and Seaport World Trade Center, has launched its Green Wedding Package, allowing brides and grooms to honor their commitment to the environment while celebrating their commitment to each other. The package is the latest initiative in the property’s Seaport Saves program, a comprehensive program which allows Seaport to continually source and execute innovative ways to improve its operation in an environmentally responsible manner.
The Green Wedding Package features a customized seasonal menu showcasing a selection of hors d’oeuvres, entrees, and desserts made with fresh and local organic ingredients by Executive Chef Richard Rayment. Each couple will enjoy a private menu planning session with Chef Rayment to determine the finest organic products that will be available during their wedding season.
The delectable courses are printed on chocolate menus situated at each place setting. And the icing on the cake is the wedding cake itself, which is organic and custom designed by Seaport’s own Executive Pastry Chef, Karen Hodsdon. In addition to the cuisine, guests are offered a wide selection of organic beer, wine, and soda. All leftovers will be recycled through Seaport’s BioX Decomposing system, which uses microorganisms to eliminate hundreds of pounds of organic waste each day.
“This green package is the result of careful planning by our wedding and ‘green’ experts, to ensure that we are able to provide our couples with an environmentally friendly wedding that exceeds our high standards of elegance,” said Marianna Accomando, Seaport’s VP of Sales. “Each Bride and Groom gets their own dedicated wedding planner to help design their dream ‘green’ wedding. Their planner is with them from the moment they book with us until the last guest goes home and this package designed for ecologically conscious couples is a testament of our commitment to that goal.”
Also included in the Green Wedding Package is a wide array of environmentally sensitive features that provide an elegant, dreamlike ambience. Dimmable energy efficient lights allow for the perfect lighting for every moment of the reception. The ballroom of the couple’s choosing is accentuated with soy-based votive candles, potted plants, orchids and silk trees, not to mention the dazzling views of the harbor or skyline from a Seaport ballroom.
All overnight wedding guests staying at Seaport have access to free bicycles to tour the neighborhood and the City. Those overnight guests arriving in a hybrid or electric car will receive a free night of valet parking and access to the new Seaport charging station (the first at any Boston Hotel.)
Couples who choose the Green Wedding Package will also have their commitment to the environment live on through a contribution in their name to the New England Wind Fund to offset the electricity used during their wedding.
Situated on the historic waterfront in one of Boston’s hottest neighborhood, Seaport is walking distance from the city’s finest shops, museums and attractions, guests will find a refreshing change in the AAA Four Diamond Seaport. As Boston’s most accommodating host, Seaport, comprised of the Seaport Hotel and Seaport World Trade Center, provides unparalleled service along with distinctive hospitality, technology, sophistication and flexibility, which combine to create fulfilling and productive experiences for each of its guests.
