Author Susan Wilson recently set out to compile a complete history of the historic Omni Parker House Boston, and just last week she celebrated the official launch of the finished book. We were so honored to be the featured photographers for the completed book, titled “Heaven, By Hotel Standards: The History of the Omni Parker House”. The book features each of the aspects of the Omni Parker House’s extensive history — from food to architecture to prominent figures — as well as all of the present-day activity that goes on at this beautiful hotel! We not only got interviewed for the book’s special Weddings chapter, the pages also featured some of our favorite past weddings at the Omni Parker House to showcase all of the beautiful spaces we love to photograph. Check out an excerpt from the book below:
We were also honored to photograph the book launch event itself, which took place at the Omni Parker House Boston and featured a meet-and-greet with the author, delicious food and drink stations from the Omni Parker House kitchen, and fabulous music from the Winiker Swing Orchestra — who were the featured “house band” of the Omni Parker’s pub The Last Hurrah for almost 30 years! The show-stopper at this event was the Omni Parker House replica cake made out of the famous Boston Creme Pie, a dessert which was actually invented right here at the Omni Parker House Boston.
We could not be happier to have been honored in this wonderful book, and to be remembered as a part of this hotel’s unbelievable history. Special thank you to everyone at the Omni Parker House Boston, and to Susan Wilson for including us in your work.
