The wonderful variety of Massachusetts offers unique wedding venues

Massachusetts has the most scenic variety of the New England states, and that is also true of its celebration and wedding venues. A bridal couple who wants to hold their wedding at a resort, inn, or hotel in Massachusetts can imagine these scenarios: a ceremony in a garden atop on a gorgeous seaside lawn at a Cape Cod resort; a casual clambake and boat cruise from the beautiful North Shore towns of Marblehead or Rockport; a sophisticated and elegant affair in the ballroom or banquet hall of a Boston or Cambridge hotel; or a small gathering at a cozy inn in Martha’s Vineyard, with spectacular ocean views.

Too many decisions? We have not yet mentioned central Massachusetts and the Berkshires, where wedding reception halls and venues may include a converted barn in the mountains, a historic meeting house or garden in Old Sturbridge Village; or a gracious hotel in the lovely towns of Lenox, Amherst, and Great Barrington. NO matter what the location -- the first decision -- hosts and wedding planners throughout Massachusetts are ready to provide expertise and help with the ceremony, the reception, lodgings for the bridal family and friends, dining, music, flowers and all the usual pieces of a wedding. Read the listings below and make some calls. Excellent service is at hand.
