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.
