Amanda & Greg knew from the start they wanted an affair that was unique, glamorous, modern, and romantic. Most importantly, they knew they wanted their day to be a  celebration of their love and family. The New York couple began their journey looking for venues in their hometown. But when Amanda's mom suggested she take a look in Boston, they fell in love with the Liberty Hotel. The venue looked dazzling with the couple's purple color palette as did Amanda.
