Wedding Venues in Boston, MA
A wedding at a library? Yes! Carrie Bradshaw knew it was a great idea (even if Mr. Big didn’t quite) -- and Boston Public Library’s main branch in Copley Square has just the space for your wedding. An historic building of enduring architecture and full of great art? Check. Light-filled galleries and halls with soaring ceilings? Check. An interior courtyard perfect for summer cocktails? Check. Excellent preferred vendors? Check. Tie the knot in the Abbey Room, enjoy cocktails in the Courtyard, have dinner in Bates Hall (under those classic green library lamps!), dancing back in the Abbey Room, and cut the cake in the Chavannes Gallery. Don’t be surprised if you and your guests leave the wedding feeling smarter.
Looking for something different but distinctive for your small wedding? Why not try a wedding and party on a classic yacht cruising around Boston Harbor? Whether your wedding will be formal or casual, Full Moon Classic Yacht Charters can help make your day. You’ll enjoy Boston Harbor and spectacular views of the Boston waterfront, with yacht staff in dress whites and the boat decorated with flowers. Step aboard the historic wooden yacht and let Full Moon’s experienced staff take care of the rest: enjoy dinner, champagne, watch the sun go down and city lights go up as you relax on the gently rocking water. With this kind of a beginning, you’re sure to start your married life in wedded bliss.
Who says sports fans have to deny their passions on their wedding day? Not Bostonians! Red Sox superfans can really make their wedding day special by having the festivities at Fenway Park. Yes, indeed, Fenway Park does do weddings; one of the oldest ballparks in the country is not just for dirt dogs anymore. You can choose the elegance of the EMC Club high above home plate, the history laden rooms of the State Street Pavillion -- or the Right Field Roof Deck with stunning views of downtown Boston (pray for no rain!) for a more casual nuptial celebration. Yes, you’re favorite player’s jersey does come in a white version. Although you may need to be quite flexible about desired dates between April and October (the season, of course, does come first), this is a wedding venue that will really make your celebration special. And the photo ops will be like no other!
