    Dream(y) venue right outside of Boston

    We had our eye on the Commander's Mansion since before we got engaged! Going to the open house was such a coup for not only touring the venue extensively, but also meeting fantastic vendors, most of whom we ended up working with. The venue is well-priced for the greater Boston area, and the flexibility of vendor choice helps to make the day more affordable!

    Working with Tammy and Gina was a total joy as we neared our wedding day. They both were very helpful and responsive in all of our questions and communications, as well as in coordination with our caterer. Everything ran very smoothly on the actual day, something I am very thankful for, as I had to let go of all control that day!

    The outdoor grape arbor for the ceremony, perfectly bloomed in early June, is truly what made the venue for me. Our guests loved the history of the mansion as everyone mingled during cocktail hour. The tented reception space was perfect for our size, and allowed for a large dancing space! Truly a 3-in-1 venue across all spaces.

    A gem of a venue

    My daughter got married October 6th and had their reception at the Commanders Mansion. It was a spectacular fall day with the grounds looking beautiful and the tent beautifully set up for dinner. The cocktail hour was set up inside the mansion and then dinner and dancing occurred under the tent. The planning for this day was well over a year and we are so grateful to Tammy, Victoria and Char...…. for their assistance, flexibility and support in experiencing this wonderful event.

    Last minute questions or requests were met with "sure; whatever we can do to help."
    Many guests still comment as to the uniqueness of the venue and how memorable it was. We had close to 200 guests and had plenty of room to dance and socialize. I'm just sorry it is over but I know many more people who select the Commanders Mansion for any event won't be disappointed
