Canoe Club Ballroom is a wedding venue located in West Bridgewater, Massachusetts. Founded in 1904, the venue has played host to a number of illustrious guests over the years, including Frank Sinatra, Glenn Miller, and Rosemary Clooney. The venue was purchased by dance aficionados Paul and Laura Merola in 1964. It has remained in the family ever since. Today, the Merolas are excited to welcome the next generation of happy couples to their lovely venue. Their work is a labor of love, and they can’t wait to help you tell your story.
Facilities and Capacity
The Canoe Club Ballroom rests on a lovely two-acre property. This riparian retreat also features a handsome gazebo. The gazebo is a great spot for an outdoor ceremony. It is set in a clearing and wreathed by hedges and flowering plants. The structure is painted white and topped with a brown shingled roof. The tiled stone path leading to the gazebo makes an admirable wedding aisle. White chairs, set on either side of the path, wait to welcome your guests. Inside the main building, the spacious ballroom affords excellent facilities for your wedding 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 long into the night.
Canoe Club Ballroom is committed to delivering the wedding experience that is just right for you. You are welcome to select from their range of wedding packages, or you can design something that is entirely your own. The options available to you cover everything from centerpieces and ceiling drapery to photography packages and a chocolate fountain. You can even have a say in the design of your wedding cake. Choose from a number of shapes, sizes, and flavors. After your ceremony, delight your guests with an array of delicious entrées. Feast on filet mignon, grilled swordfish, and more.

Having people who really know their stuff makes a huge difference and these ladies know their stuff for sure. All of our guests have said how beautiful everything was and I have told them all that the team at CCB is the reason why.
Reach out and give them a look. You will not be disappointed.
Canoe Club Ballroom's reply:Thank you so much Syisha for your kind words! The CCB family loved being able to be a part and celebrate your and Wesley's special day. We wish the new Green family the best years to come
We have been working with the Canoe Club for over 25yrs. Stacy & her staff will guide you everystep of the way to ensure you have the perfect day.
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!
