    Beautiful Venue and an Exceptional Team

    I got married on 10/27/2022 to my best friend! The venue is gorgeous but one of the biggest reasons my now-husband and I chose to have our wedding at Bourne was thanks to Miriam. She was our initial point of contact and was so responsive and worked with us on making sure we could have the wedding of our dreams. She was helpful, provided realistic advice, and accommodating with our requests. The day of coordinator we had was Steve -- he was on point the entire night. We met with him the day before our wedding to go over our wedding timeline, and we were anxious that there wasn't enough time but Steve made sure we felt comfortable and he made sure that our wedding day went as smoothly as possible! Steve was timely, gathered and directed people accordingly, and made sure that my husband and I were happy! A big thank you to those superstars! For those interested in the food --- my guests were very impressed with cocktail hour and the dinner entrees my husband and I had were absolutely delicious (I had the Braised Short Rib and my husband had the Bourbon Maple Salmon)! One tip for foodie couples -- you might not be able to enjoy cocktail hour in the midst of photos and entertaining your guests so Steve will have a plate of cocktail food in the bridal suite ready for you BUT if you're like me, and you still aren't able to have a moment to enjoy the food -- ask him to pack it up for you to enjoy when you return to the hotel!! Sadly my husband and I asked too late so the food had already been cleared, but if tasting cocktail hour food is important -- definitely ask for it to get packed!

    The best wedding

    I knew from the second I walked into the Bourne Mansion that we had to have our wedding there. The rooms are STUNNING - every room has a different feel to it and it makes the whole place so unique.

    We were lucky enough to have the ceremony outside, which I was dying for. The weather was perfect, the backyard is picturesque and beautiful. They go above and beyond keeping the gardens immaculate.

    The staff was also AMAZING! Miriam could tell how much I loved the place and every conversation I had with her just made me more and more excited for the big day. Steve took over during our week of planning, and made my fiancé and I feel so secure. He is the kindest drill sergeant you could ever meet, and was exactly what this nervous bride wanted! Every text and email was answered so promptly, even the ones that came after the wedding about a forgotten pair of suit pants :) The staff was great as well, and the FOOD. Every guest commented on how delicious everything was. It's two days after our wedding and we're still finishing up our extra entrees :)

    I cannot recommend the Bourne Mansion enough. I absolutely loved our day and am crossing my fingers that we can attend a wedding there in the near future!

    Incredible Venue with Phenomenal Staff!

    The Bourne Mansion is incredible in every way! When my fiancé and I chose the Bourne, we did so because of their beauty, presentation, and historical old world charm that is truly unique and one of a kind! Never in a million years did we imagine that our wedding which was scheduled for March 27, 2020 would end up being postponed due to Covid19. As you can imagine, this was an extremely difficult and anxious time. Despite this set of circumstances which were completely out of our control, Miriam Aronson and the phenomenal staff at the Bourne mansion, went above and beyond for us in our team of need! They were immediately responsive and miraculously did everything in their power to seamlessly arrange our new wedding date. Most importantly, they set all of our worries and concerns at ease. There are no words that can describe how truly grateful we are to the Bourne Mansion.
