Amazing Boston Wedding Venues
With a city like Boston you certainly are spoiled for choice when it comes to picking a wedding venue, and we’ve worked with and love so many over the life of our company, But, if you’re having a hard time choosing and you’re still looking for an incredible bean town wedding venue, be sure to pursue this short list, with a few of our very favorites!
Hampshire House – On Beacon Hill
First up, we have the Hampshire House, which is a stunning turn-of-the-century mansion located on historic Beacon Hill. This venue is a very special spot where generations upon generations of Bostonians and their guests have celebrated the biggest milestones of their lives!
The Hampshire House was designed and built in 1910 by society architect, Ogden Codman, so when you host your event at Hampshire House you are adding your story to the long history of Boston Society. The mansion is a five story Georgian revival townhouse that is lavished with Italian marble, carved oak paneling, crystal chandeliers, gorgeous fireplaces and tall Palladian windows. Extraordinary!
This venue is an absolutely gorgeous spot to wine, dine and dance the night away. You and your guests can relax amidst the unpretentious luxury of the venue, while at the same time, be completely pampered with incredible and attentive service, world class cuisine and a setting that will truly make you feel like royalty! So, whether you are dreaming of an intimate brunch/luncheon or an over-the-top reception, the Hampshire House might just be the place to help you design an unforgettable experience that will feel all your own!
SoWa Power Station
Next on our list, is the iconic SoWa Power Station! The massive and impressive power station is truly a masterpiece of late-industrial glamor, and when the SoWa Power Station was built in 1891, it was – at the time – the world’s largest power generating plant! In its heyday, it actually produced more than enough electricity to run the entire West End Street Railway. Impressive indeed!
Moving forward into today, and onto its new life as a wedding and event venue, the century-old structural elements have been revitalized and restored, which transformed it into a perfect blank canvas for both community and private celebrations.
As such, SoWa can accommodate everything from a small and intimate reception or cocktail party in the mezzanine, to a huge gala, fundraiser or large wedding in the magnificent (and absolutely massive!) main floor space. And, the goods don’t stop there! The SoWa Power Station also boasts a huge list of preferred vendors, caterers and planners. You can rest assured that every company on their preferred vendor list has been vetted by the team at SoWa Power station, which will help you to avoid wedding decision fatigue! Phew!
Finishing up our short list is Warehouse XI, which is located in Union Square, and less than 15 minutes from Boston proper. The WXI venue is a large, unique, minimalist industrial space, that is known for its oversized glass windows & unrivaled natural light, high ceilings, concrete floors and gorgeous brick walls.
In our opinion, WXI is a gorgeous blank canvas – with beautiful architectural bones – , and can easily be transformed into whatever vision you have for your big day! And, selfishly we always love to do events there!
The event space offers 2000 square feet of open concept potential, as well as offering two smaller event rooms. When you add it all up there is 3225 square feet of venue space that can host any event, for up to 150 guests.
And, one important piece of information…WXI is a small, local, and woman-owned business! One that takes great pride in their space, and always works hard to ensure that everyone who comes through the doors of WXI has a truly wonderful experience. Check WXI out for your wedding today. We promise that you will not be disappointed!
