Suburban hotel has inside track on outdoor weddings
Close to outdoor attractions like Lexington, Concord and Walden Pond, it’s no surprise that the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Boston-Beford Glen excels in weddings held outside. Couples can say their “I do’s” in lovely landscaped pergolas in the hotel’s courtyard, which features colorful shrubs and flowers. Receptions, whether intimate or for 300 people, are held on a terrace overlooking part of the 24-acre wooded property, the details, from exquisite catered menus, signature cocktails and butler-passed hors d’oeuvres to floral centerpieces and gorgeous cakes, planned and customized by an experienced wedding staff. Outdoor weddings are held from March through November, with fire pits and heaters taking the edge off cooler days and nights and backup rooms available should the weather not cooperate.
