“For those who love a touch of drama, you can’t beat the Park Plaza’s chandeliers, balconies, and uplighting. But the real reason it’s our favorite is its fabulous proximity to the Common. At a recent wedding, we ran into an accordion player on the bridge in the Public Garden, and he played love songs for our couple to dance to!” —Kate Harper and Lara Woolfson, Studio Nouveau, 800-797-9344,
