We were so happy that we chose the PEM for our wedding venue, after looking at 10+ different sites around the Boston area. The PEM is a unique, special, classy place with great history and beautiful architecture. We wanted a wedding venue with character and meaning and we found that in the PEM. Our experience with the PEM was even more special because of the event coordinator, Natalia Laskaris. Natalia was professional, caring, kind, knowledgable and calm throughout our year-long planning process. She responded to our countless emails quickly and always answered our questions, making us feel like we were a top priority. Natalia helped coordinate all of our vendors and communicated with them in the days leading up to our wedding, so everyone was on the same page. She went above and beyond what we were expecting and was an absolute pleasure to deal with. The PEM is lucky to have Natalia! If you decide to book the Peabody Essex Museum, keep in mind you are hiring all vendors on your own. Your payment to the PEM guarantees you the gallery space, tables and chairs but that's about it. You have to choose from a list of 5 or 6 catering companies and you have NO choice about the alcohol vendor (you have to use the Hawthorne Hotel/Catering). This worked out well for us, because we got to pick and choose the vendors we liked and really were able to plan our wedding with our personal style in mind.

We recently had our wedding at the Peabody Essex Museum. After struggling to find a venue in Boston (where we live) that wasn't a generic hotel, wasn't hugely overpriced, wasn't too tiny for our big families, and didn't have any other weird deal-breakers, we started to look outside the city and immediately found PEM. We'd visited the museum a few times before and knew how beautiful it was. As soon as we visited to look at it as a potential wedding venue, we knew we'd found our place! It's absolutely gorgeous. Natalia was incredible to work with from start to finish. She was responsive, organized, helpful, positive, and enthusiastic. She always had an answer to my many, many questions! Her staff on the night of the event was wonderful, too. They got every detail right, and we didn't have to think about a thing except enjoying our wedding! I can't recommend PEM more highly!

My husband and I had our wedding reception at the PEM this past May. Our day was perfect in most part because of the PEM and Natalia Laskaris. From the first meeting with Natalia I knew that I wanted to have our reception at the PEM just because she was so nice and easy to work with. Even when we were faced with problems or difficult decisions, Natalia was right there with us, helping us through them. Our guests were so impressed by the space and proffesionalism of the staff. I would definitely recommend the PEM as a wedding venue!

Our wedding at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA was on May 12, 2012 and it was the picture perfect evening. Natalia Laskaris, the wedding coordinator at the PEM is top notch. Everything went off without a hitch and was absolutely beautiful. From the first day I met Natalia I knew my wedding day would be perfect. Not only is one of the nicest wedding coordinators I have ever met she is very organized, easy to contact, quick to respond, and has a love for the PEM which makes each function she hosts special. The entire staff at the museum was so accommodating, professional, and nice. Lindsay Ottis at the Hawthorne hotel and her staff, especially Elena and all the bar and wait staff were impeccable. The meal was delivered fast but with personal service that our guest have never encountered at a wedding. Not to mention that the food from the hors d'oeuvres to the entrees were delicious. Coupling the PEM with the Hawthorne Hotel's food and bar service was a winning combination. Natalia and Lindsay work so well together, you are guaranteed a perfect night! Both vendor's staff work seamlessly together to put on a flawless event at the museum. The setting of the East India Marine Hall is so unique and breathtaking. I can not thank everyone enough that had a hand in making our day perfect! I highly recommend the PEM for a unique and memorable wedding!

Natalia was amazing and the museum was such a beautiful spot. Natalia was able to answer any question we had and help with every last minute issue that popped up. She was wonderful to work with.

If have your wedding/reception at the Peabody Essex Museum you will not be disappointed! The place is unique and beautiful and the staff are excellent to work with. I got married in April of 2012 and 8 months later people are still talking about how beautiful the wedding was and what a great time they had. The museum has a great list of prefered vendors to choose from for music, catering, florists, photographers, etc. It made it much easier to find quality vendors that work well with the venue and fit a variety of price ranges. Also, the location was great, especially for my out-of-town guests, or guests that just like to party! There are two hotels just a short walk from the museum so we didn't need to provide a shuttle bus to the hotels. Also, there are lots of things to see in and do. My relatives from out of state enjoyed visiting the witch museums and other historic areas, shopping and eating in the Pickering Wharf area, and the Peabody Essex Museum itself. All just a short walk!

My husband and I had our wedding this past September at the PEM. I was searching for a unique, elegant, and breathtaking venue. The PEM was everything and more! Our ceremony was in the Atrium, cocktail hour in the Bartlett Gallery, and reception in the East India Marine Hall. All of our guests said that our wedding was THE BEST and would never forget the experience of having dinner and dancing in such a beautiful setting. One of the best parts of my experience with the museum was Natalia Laskaris, she is the best vendor that I encountered. You can tell that she truly loves what she does and is so calm that she can have such a soothing effect on nervous brides and grooms. She is extremely knowledgeable about what the museum can offer and goes out of her way to accommodate every request no matter how big or small. She replied promptly to every call or email and had no problem meeting us in person when he stopped by the museum to scope things out during the planning process. We had a family friend as the Officiant who was not well versed on how the ceremony should flow, however Natalia had no issue with stepping right in and running the rehearsal when her help was needed without ever over stepping her boundaries. She really helped make our wedding the most important night of our lives and I would never dream on changing a thing.

I couldn't say enough wonderful things about the Peabody-Essex Museum and Natalia. The museum is such a unique and beautiful location for a wedding. Natalia and her team were fantastic through the planning phase and on the day of. When the location of our ceremony had to be changed several months before the wedding (due to unforseen construction), Natalia bent over backwards to ensure that our new ceremony venue was perfect. My husband and I and our friends and family could not have had a better time! Everyone is still talking about what a wonderful wedding it was! I highly recommend the PEM!

The best place to have your wedding! Natalia was very attentive, professional and pretty much awesome from beginning to end. Only reason our wedding went perfectly was because of Natalia and many thanks to her and the museum.

We had our reception in the Atrium at PEM. It is so beautiful! All of my guests told me how great it was because it is such a different place. If you're not the guilded ballroom type, this is a must see. Natalia is the BEST to work with. She is calm and kind and truly so easy to deal with. It was a wonderful experience!

My husband and I held our cocktail hour and reception at the Peabody Essex museum. It was so amazing! Natalia was so easy to work with and she did a great job making sure everything was how we imagined and discussed! The venue itself is STUNNING! Talk about a serious wow factor, and you can have as much fun as you'd like with the up lighting! The charm of Salem combined with the unique atrium of the museum, you will definitely leave your guests with a lasting impression! Amazing, amazing! We will be suggesting the Peabody Essex Museum to friends/family members that are getting married on the North Shore, hands down. Love it!
