Across from the garden, let your smaller ceremony blossom
Though grandeur is part of the Taj Boston, the majestic landmark hotel is also the perfect site for weddings with a more intimate feel. Let the hotel’s meticulous event planners and staff help turn your big day into something you and your guests will remember forever. Among the hotel’s many options for smaller ceremonies: the French and Adam Room, a jewel-box with ornate mirrors and tall windows overlooking Newbury Street. The feel inside is luxurious, the fabrics deep maroon and gold, the lighting from chandeliers and sconces. The Back Bay Room, a spacious corner room with a blazing wood-burning fireplace, is another cozy possibility, as is the green-themed Garden Room, with its gorgeous views of the Public Garden.
Smaller ceremonies a specialty at this charming Lexington inn
The idea of an intimate wedding celebration is not a revolutionary one at The Inn at Hastings Park, despite the inn’s location in Lexington, where American independence began. The historic inn, a collection of three thoughtfully restored 19th century buildings, has made smaller weddings, for up to 60 people, a specialty, with ceremonies in its pretty side yard, or “park,” or in its lovely back garden (which can accommodate a tent). The inn’s celebrated dining venue – contemporary but cozy – can host your reception, featuring the culinary team’s inspired versions of New England cuisine, customized to the tastes of the wedding couple. The inn’s warm, friendly and wedding-tested staff will help with all the details to make your day extra-special.
