Emerson Inn receives Bride’s Choice Award

WeddingWire, the nation’s leading online wedding marketplace, has announced that Emerson Inn by the Sea has been selected as a winner of the prestigious WeddingWire Bride’s Choice Awards 2013 for its wedding ceremony and reception venue in Rockport. This is the third year in a row Emerson Inn by the Sea has received this award.

This annual awards program recognizes the top five percent of wedding professionals in the WeddingWire Network who demonstrate excellence in quality, service, responsiveness and professionalism.

Emerson Inn by the Sea’s selection as a Bride’s Choice Award 2013 winner was made based on the positive experiences expressed by past clients on WeddingWire, the world’s largest wedding review site. While many industry awards are given by the host organization, the WeddingWire Bride’s Choice Awards winners are determined solely based on reviews from real newlyweds and their experiences working with Emerson Inn by the Sea.

“Now in its fifth year, the Bride’s Choice Awards program continues to recognize the elite wedding professionals who exemplify a commitment to quality, service and professionalism,” said Timothy Chi, chief executive officer of WeddingWire, in a statement. “We are honored to recognize Emerson Inn by the Sea for their impressive achievements within the wedding industry.”
