To be successful, your wedding does not have to be in the swankiest, and most expensive, hotel in Boston. Thankfully, there are many beautiful venues throughout Massachusetts, some free, to hold your wedding. Following, in no particular order, are a few of my favorite non hotel venues, some well-known, some not, some geared for large ceremonies, some only for small, some expensive, some inexpensive or free. Most can be seen on my website on the FAQ page
The Fruitlands Museum, Harvard – gorgeous views of the Nashoba Valley
The Codman Estate, Lincoln – beautiful garden for an outdoor ceremony
Gibbet Hill Farm, Groton – wonderful location for inside or out
Crane Estate, Essex – breath taking
The Lodge at Fort Pond, Littleton – rustic, on the water, and inexpensive
Mt. Wachusett, Princeton – ride the ski lift to the top after the ceremony
The Old North Bridge, Concord – you can’t get married on the bridge and you will need a permit
Acton Arboretum, Acton – free to use, but need to be contacted
The Arnold Arboretum, Jamaica Plain – also free with many beautiful spots
Nashoba Valley Winery, Bolton – wonderful spot
Wayside Inn, Sudbury – The Martha Mary Chapel is truly special at this historic inn
Poppenesset Inn, New Seabury – almost on the beach, yet covered
Wedgewood Pines, Stow – golf course location on the veranda
Harrington Farm, Princeton – simple and beautiful
Decordova museum, Lincoln – elegant
Stonehurst Estate, Waltham –stately old mansion
Any gazebo --  gazebos are magical places
Any backyard in Massachusetts – especially ours in Littleton by the koi pond and waterfall
