Create your own romantic story when you exchange your vows at this historic site

Exchange your vows in a colorful seaside garden by an historic mansion with harbor and ocean views as a backdrop. Have a reception under a tent on the property’s Seaside Lawn. That’s the magical atmosphere at The House of the Seven Gables, where waterfront weddings are truly one-of-a-kind. The famous Gables house was, of course, the inspiration for Nathaniel Hawthorne’s Gothic novel. And you can create your own story to remember by choosing a ceremony in the property’s Seaside Gardens or a landscaped side lawn. The Seaside Lawn hosts up to 180 people for dinner and dancing; 250 for a standing reception. More intimate receptions can be held in historic interior rooms, including in the Hooper-Hathaway House, built in 1682.
Hours: Open daily 10am - 6pm from March thru August, and by online reservation in November and December. Advance tickets highly recommended.
