Wedding & Event Venues

Where enchanting events and momentous occasions unfold in high style in Boston…

What could be more glamorous than saying “I do” surrounded by vaulted arches, golden balconies and glittering chandeliers? In the place where Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton spent their sequestered second honeymoon, along with a red-carpet list of high society notables, starlets and world leaders? Our 1912 institution is Grand Old Boston epitomized Historic? Yes. And timeless, and classic, and elegant. But old? Never.

Picture your first dance in the wonderment of the Grand Ballroom’s 30-foot coffered ceilings, cloud murals, hand-laid mosaic tiles and exquisite detailing in white and gold. Or set your 50th or VIP fundraiser among the commanding Beaux Arts architecture. Our Gilded Age spaces are lavish and ornate, historic but with all the modern comforts — from understated and intimate to over-the-top extravagant and huge scale. Join the tastemakers who’ve held court amidst these walls for more than a hundred years. Extraordinary moments happen here — you’ll feel it the moment you step inside.
