If you’re planning a wedding in the Bay State, you’re not only lucky in love, you’re lucky in location. From mansions, to golf courses, beaches and harbors, there are lots of choices and the choice is all yours.
To help you get started, check out five favorite spots to say “I do” in Massachusetts.
I’m a Power Gull…no, I’m totally sober. A proud Gull (yes a giant seagull is the mascot) of Endicott College…my Alma mater. One of the many reasons why I chose to attend the small college (at the time) was the amazingly beautiful campus and the fact that it’s literally ON the water. Like, I am talking ON the water. So, if your wedding dreams are filled with sea shells, crashing waves and beaches…I’d say this would be your spot. The lawn behind Misselwood, the gorgeous, elegant mansion featuring tents with chandeliers and a wooden dance floor (bring the comfy shoes) is the ideal spot for cocktail and dinner wedding receptions. Just imagine what your pictures will look like with such a backdrop!
*Singing loudly*…The loovvee booaat…Speaking of boat (and love)…why not treat your guests to a Boston Harbor Cruise wedding? You and your party goers board a giant luxury vessel reserved JUST for you…(you want your day to be all about the two of you, right?). Champagne, dancing, amazing views of Boston’s Skyline along the Harbor – what could be more romantic? Note to self – the dress is not a floatation device.
If your clubs are always prepared to hit the green, this 27 hole course may be calling your name for more than just a game of golf. Granite Links was recently named to Golf Digest’s prestigious list of “100 Greatest Golf Courses in America!” And it isn’t a half bad backdrop for a wedding event either. No matter where you look you’ll get a scenic view. Where else can you experience Boston’s skyline, the Harbor Islands, and the Blue Hills Reservation all around you? Let the photo options begin. The clubhouse ballroom and tented Pavilion provide an elegant setting to say “I do.”
Talk about a room with a view…try many rooms with many views! The Royal Sonesta Hotel offers outdoor and indoor options galore for your dream wedding day. Exchange vows with the backdrop of the Charles River as your guests relax in the classy but comfy Riverside Terrace, a 3,000 square foot unique outdoor event space. Or, if you always dreamed of a grand ballroom setting (complete with floor to ceiling mirrors) – the hotel offers that option too…along with many other one-of-a-kind spaces that embrace the breathtaking views.
Waltz into Cruiseport’s 6,000 square foot grand ballroom through the classic lighthouse turret. Vaulted ceilings and giant windows give every guest an unobstructed view of Gloucester’s historic harbor. This waterfront property hosts three major businesses all on one dock…the city’s first and only Homeland Security licensed cruise ship and marine terminal, wedding and function venue, and a packed (like waiting list packed) Seaport Grille, a harborfront restaurant. Sounds like it’s just a summer spot, right? Wrong-o. It’s open year round. If your dream includes a winter wonderland wedding with harbor views – this is the place.Cindy's Sentiments | No comment
