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’s 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.Sent on 11/01/2020
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.

Our Perfect Venue
We've been attending the annual Sheepshearing Festival at Gore the last few years and knew it was a gorgeous place to take a walk close to our home in Belmont. When we got engaged Gore was on the shortlist of potential venues we wanted. It offered everything we wanted: outdoor ceremony location (with a covered location as a backup) and indoor reception space with air conditioning. The Carriage House was renovated in the last few years and is just beautiful, and we were able to take some gorgeous photos inside the historic mansion. Linda was so personable and flexible and actually recommended both the JOP and catering company we ended up hiring. It is an amazing value as a venue because you have so many options and they have tables and chairs on-site so you don't have to rent them. Highly recommend!Sent on 11/09/2019

Beautiful Venue - Great Experience!
Gore Place was the perfect space for our wedding – a mix of the beautiful outdoors and the brick mansion in the background. We planned our wedding from out of state and Linda was so kind and helpful along the way. She did a face time meeting with us, met us in person a couple of times, and communicated well over email. She was there on the day of the wedding and was so kind and helpful along the way. We loved getting to have food trucks pull right up to the big white tent for dinner and dessert! The bridal party got to use a room inside of the mansion for our getting ready finishing touches, some picture taking, and signing our ketubah. What an amazing venue – we’re so happy to have gotten married at Gore Place!Sent on 10/29/2019
We absolutely love working at Gore Place! Not only is it a spectacular oasis near the city, but it is impeccably managed. The staff there really care about their clients and vendors, which makes our job seamless. Clients are always so happy to have booked there, and we are always happy when we have the honor of staffing their events!
Gore place is a lovely venue for weddings and special events. Between their three season tent, magnificent grounds and newly renovated carriage this venue boasts of unique charm and elegance. Marjorie is always a joy to work with she is friendly, helpful, and accommodating.
Gore Place has readily become a desirable wedding destination in the Greater Boston area. With the inclusion of the new tent for up to 200 guests and the recent renovations to the Carriage House for smaller receptions; Gore Place is a malleable and well managed facility. As a caterer who works with Gore Place frequently for weddings, we always look forward to working with their very capable staff. Marjorie, the Function Manager, is especially helpful given her wealth of knowledge in regards to the space and her vast experience in event planning. Every wedding we have catered at this venue has gone off without a hitch.
