Canoe Club Ballroom is a wedding venue located in West Bridgewater, Massachusetts. Founded in 1904 as a canoe storage facility, the property has hosted illustrious performers over the years, including Frank Sinatra, Glenn Miller, and Rosemary Clooney. In 1964, the club was purchased by ballroom dance teachers Paul and Laura Merola, and it has remained in the family ever since. Today, Paul and Laura’s daughter Stacy welcomes couples to tie the knot at a venue with over 50 years of experience planning and executing weddings.

Facilities and Capacity
Canoe Club Ballroom is nestled on two acres along the Nunckatessett River. This riverside retreat features a beautifully landscaped courtyard with white fencing and a bridge in the background. At the end of this courtyard rests a gazebo wreathed by hedges and flowering plants, which is a great spot for hosting your outdoor ceremony. The structure is painted white and topped with a brown shingled roof, while a tiled stone path makes for the perfect aisle. White chairs, set on either side of the walkway, wait to greet your guests. Inside the main building, the spacious ballroom affords excellent facilities for your reception. The combination of wood flooring, wall paneling, and a high ceiling impart a sense of grandeur to any special occasion. A row of tall, broad windows span one side of the room and bathe the space in natural light. Wall sconces, chandeliers, and a constellation of ceiling-mounted lights keep the room illuminated after the sun goes down. In the corner, a bar stands ready to distribute refreshments to thirsty guests. From the carpeted dais, the evening’s musical entertainment can keep everyone dancing late into the night.

Services Offered
Canoe Club Ballroom is committed to delivering the wedding experience that is just right for you. The venue offers five hours of event time and all-inclusive services that cover everything from centerpieces and ceiling drapery to photography and a chocolate fountain. Chiavari chairs, chair covers and sashes, tables, floor-length tablecloths, entertainment packages, a photo booth, uplighting, and monogram lighting are also available. Full-service catering includes appetizers, a four-course meal, a late night snack bar, custom wedding cakes, and dessert spreads.

    The wedding we had always hoped for!!!

    The Canoe Club Ballroom was the best choice for our wedding and reception, hands down! From the first meeting when we viewed the venue through the day of our wedding, the experience was nothing short of perfect. We worked closely with Stacy & Jennifer throughout the process. The entire staff at CCB was so kind and helpful during the planning as I had MANY questions but they always answered them with detail - and were quick to respond as well! I could go on and on about how great of an experience we had. The prices are very reasonable, the support you will receive from the staff is outstanding and the venue itself is absolutely stunning. So many of our guests complimented our choice of venue throughout the night. Thank you to all who were there on our wedding day & made the day as seamless as possible!!!

    5-Star Treatment!

    The Canoe Club Ballroom was the first venue we looked at during our search and after all the ones we had visited during the summer of 2018, this one was the best, by far! The owner, Stacy Merola, and her staff were so inviting and answered every question we had. They were also very transparent about their prices and showed us a breakdown of everything. Their rate packages were perfect by including vendors, which made the process easier by giving us their list of recommended vendors to work with. They were super helpful during the entire process and answered our emails and phone calls promptly. They were even amazing during the pandemic by keeping us updated with what was going on and what their process would be for reopening. They let us reschedule multiple times (4 times to be exact) and it paid off in the end with the perfect wedding. They always let us know what their Covid restrictions were and helped us through everything. They helped keep the stress down as much as possible by being incredibly flexible and always available. They made what was already a stressful time, compounded by a global pandemic, much more manageable. They were very helpful with every detail and always made sure everything was exactly how we wanted. Stacy and her team proved time and time again they are experts in this industry and that they are worth every penny. Our wedding was perfect and magical and we couldn't have imagined it any better. We thank them so much for everything and giving us the dream wedding we wanted.

The Canoe Club is one of the most beautiful places that I have had the pleasure to visit on many occasions. They do an amazing job making sure that everything is done to perfection on your wedding day! Not only is it a very special place to have a wedding … but it is very special to me. I was married at the Canoe Club 15 years ago! I love it there! It is a very magical place! It was so exciting to be the one to perform a ceremony as a JP at the very place where I said “I do” ~~Justice of the Peace Carol Roberts~

We played a wedding @ Canoe Club in May of 2010 and it was a fantastic experience. It's not often these days that a band has a stage to perform on... and the venue staff was an absolute dream to work with. They truly care for their clients & hired-in vendors and host a fantastic evening for everyone involved... We are looking forward to getting back very soon! Thanks so much!
