THE CROSS STREET OF BEACON AND BERKELEY
It was on the cross street of Beacon and Berkeley over a decade ago when owner, Amanda, discovered Isabella Gardner. Isabella, once described as a “fairy in a machine shop,” was known as a philanthropist, who marched to the beat of her own drum. Often serving champagne with donuts, throwing large art galas and attending Red Sox games, Isabella’s quirky spirit, and huge heart have become an inspiration in the Beacon and Berkeley brand.
WE BELIEVE IN MORE THAN PLANNING
Founder Amanda McCabe has been in the event business for over a decade. She credits her background in catering, venue management, floral and event rentals to her creative approach in design. Amanda has made the company’s goal to work with the client to prioritize, plan and execute both in terms of logistics and design aesthetic in a manner that is authentic to the client. Amanda and team have been featured in Style Me Pretty, Inside Weddings, The Knot, United with Love, The Washingtonian, Brides Magazine, Aisle Society, 100 Layer Cake, and Borrowed and Blue to name a few.
Today, Beacon and Berkeley is proud to be involved with various animal, veteran and children’s charities, and to extend invitations to all of our couples to join in with charitable events we are a part of.
