Perfect venue for garden party wedding
We felt so fortunate to find this hidden gem of a venue in Watertown! You have access to the entire historic home and grounds when you book your wedding here. The coordinators work with you to format your perfect day, whether you want to have an indoor or outdoor ceremony/cocktail hour, or if you want to use their beautiful tent for the reception. Our guests raved about all the natural beauty of the grounds, and the exquisite interior of the home. Keep in mind, this is just a venue. Meaning, you are responsible for hiring all outside vendors (food, music, flowers, bartenders/servers, day of coordination), which can be a lot more work than other venues, but it also allows for more flexibility. Gina and Tammy were always available by e-mail and easy to communicate with! The venue also hosts an annual wedding showcase every spring, which was super fun and is were we found many of our vendors!Sent on 07/15/2019

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!Sent on 07/08/2019
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.Sent on 11/06/2018
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
