Old World Charm

Old world architecture combined with rich flora creates the perfect backdrop to an unforgettable intimate event at the Redwood Library & Anthenaeum.

For the couple that appreciates grand architecture, literature, and old world charm, a wedding at the Redwood Library & Athenaeum in Newport, RI is a dream come true. Filled with old portraits and marble busts, this venue is rich with history and culture. Francesca Campo of Campo & Company Events was the visionary and planner of this styled shoot. Utilizing many items from her personal collection of art as well as old leather bound books, she created little vignettes at each place setting that spoke to the aesthetic of the library. “I liked that each guest got an elegant little cake for dessert with their very own gemstone and organic garnish. Each guest’s place card had their name and the name of their gemstone and its properties,” described Francesca. To add enchantment to the day, unique floral elements such as berries and branches were abundant among the arrangements designed by Greenlion Weddings, Floral & Event Design.

Walnut Wonder

The Vision: An intimate wedding by the walnut fireplace at Smith & Wollensky, dining on mouth-watering steaks and succulent seafood.

Architectural and antique elements at the historic Boston Castle were juxtaposed with modern trends to create an intimate dining experience. ”The inspiration behind this shoot was to showcase the existing architectural elements that the historical venue already offers, but exposing it in a different light by incorporating current trends with an antique feel,” described Catherine Leiras, Catering/Private Event Manger at Smith & Wollensky. A walnut farm table with custom stained infinity chairs from Peterson Party Center complimented the historically rustic charm of the room. Gold sponge chargers, gold Arezzo flatware, and loose floral arrangements in soft hues housed in antique vessels added chic romance to the head table. As a nod to current fashion trends (and the invitation suite), a plaid napkin was used amongst linens in varying textures and patterns from Table Toppers of Newton.

Dining Destination – Smith & Wollensky

A premier dining destination, Smith & Wollensky at Boston Castle is an exceptional venue to host any type of event.

Tell us the history of Smith & Wollensky.

A prime spotting place for local celebrities, political figures and even a few movie stars, Smith & Wollensky has long been considered a premier dining destination. Offering simply elegant food, attention to detail in service, and a refined setting, the experience is uniquely American.  Smith & Wollensky continues to symbolize the timeless luxury of Prime USDA steaks, premium seafood, signature cocktails and award-winning wines. Smith & Wollensky opened in the Back Bay “Castle” in 2004, and is one of the most unique dining experiences and venues in Boston, indulging guests’ sense of history and feeling of luxury in its grand architecture and space, and rich furnishings.  The historic stone and brick castle was built in 1891 and originally served as the headquarters for the First Corps of Cadets, and is now listed on the National Historic Register. The first floor gun room, social hall and museum floor now feature the bar and main dining room. With four floors and 26,000 square feet of space, The castle boasts an expansive selection of private dining and event rooms, including the “Battle Room” ballroom – with features such as working fireplaces, a balcony, high ceilings and historic artifacts.  The uniqueness and history of the venue make it one of the most coveted settings in Boston to host corporate and social occasions.  The venue hosts groups from 20 to 250 for seated dining events and receptions.

About Smith & Wollensky Restaurant Group

Smith & Wollensky Restaurant Group owns and operates iconic Smith & Wollensky locations in Boston Back Bay, Boston Atlantic Wharf, Chicago, Las Vegas, Columbus, Houston and two restaurants in Boston, as well as its new Wollensky’s Grill in Chicago. Smith & Wollensky Restaurant Group opened its first European location in London in spring 2015.

What types of events can you hold at the Boston Castle location?

We host all types of events here at the Castle from corporate to social events, including bar/bat mitzvah, galas, rehearsal dinners, and of course WEDDINGS! We do it all!

When consulting with the client are there signature dishes you always suggest? Are they offered on the regular restaurant menu or just catering?

That’s a hard one, as I have many.  I really enjoy selling our hors d’oeuvres. What makes them really special is that every item is prepared in house from scratch with all fresh local ingredients. A couple of my favorites would be our signature Wollensky’s Beef Sliders, the combination of beef and bacon brings a perfect balance of sweetness together. Buffalo Fried Oysters topped with crumbles bleu cheese… need I say more? Lucky for all, both of these items are available on our Bar Menu for anyone that dines at the restaurant!

How often do you change the menu (regular & catering)?

We change the menu twice per year, in the Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter, offering guests new preparations of our steaks, seafood, sides and hors d’oeuvres that incorporate the freshest produce and flavors of the season.
