Love the Gore Place!

My husband and I were married at the Gore Place on 8/26/22. We were originally supposed to get married on 8/27/21 but pushed back because of Covid. I'm so happy we were married there. Our reception was inside Carriage House. What a cool place that really transports you back in time. The grounds were beautiful to take places also inside the mansion. A special thanks to Linda Defranco who is nice/sweetest person and worked with us before and the day off. She was able to come up with a way to do the ceremony inside with a thunderstorm approaching. Gore Place is a special place to get married. It's a great spot not too far from Boston, easy for guests to come and enjoy!

Gorgeous wedding venue

The grounds and the carriage house at Gore Place were exactly what we were looking for in a wedding venue. There are a number of areas on the grounds that would have worked for the reception, but we decided to do so in the field in front of the mansion right by the big apple tree. Despite being right off the main road through Waltham the trees and greenery made it feel like we were in a remote countryside estate. The carriage house had the rustic look we were looking for but was still fully functional for everything we needed to hold the reception.

Highly Recommend Gem in Waltham!

My husband and I got married at Gore Place last weekend and it could not have been more perfect. Our original venue could not hold our wedding as planned and we had to look for a new location to hold a very small ceremony with our immediate family and friends to become legally married. From living in Waltham and passing by the beautiful grounds of Gore Place, we decided to inquire if they would be available to hold our ceremony. We met their wedding coordinator Linda to take a tour of the grounds and could not be more pleased with our experience. Linda was attentive and empathetic towards the current pandemic that is affecting so many weddings this year. She truly understood how brides and grooms are feeling during the pandemic and wanted to help in any way that she could. She gave us a tour of the grounds and the options we would have for our ceremony. Gore Place is so expansive and has multiple different options. Given that our wedding was in late October, we had no idea what we would be dealing with for weather, not to mention the State鈥檚 limits on guests, both inside and outside. Gore Place offered three different locations for our ceremony (outside in the field, outside under the tent, and inside the beautiful Carriage House) and we now had three options to help us with weather. We left our meeting with Linda and knew immediately this was the place we wanted to get married.
On our wedding day, Linda was very responsive and there for our every need. She allowed us to take pictures in the mansion, which make for breathtaking photo-opts. Linda was a superb wedding coordinator and she met and exceeded our every expectation. My husband and I would recommend Gore Place and Linda for your wedding as it truly provides a one-of-a-kind experience and especially during the pandemic, it was a ray of sunshine, during our cloudy skies. We are so grateful to have chosen Gore Place and highly recommend for future brides and grooms.
