We wanted to find a venue that was local, easy to get to, but still had natural beauty. We instantly fell in love with the beautiful and historic grounds, the mansion and the rustic appeal of the newly renovated carriage house. I had my heart set on a fall wedding and couldn't imagine another place to do it. It was also a plus that it is very close to Boston and fit into our budget. The venue is only part of the appeal, as Marjorie, the function manager was indispensable in making sure our wedding went as planned. She is very communicative, thoughtful and easy to work with with. Our beautiful fall wedding day turned into a rainy fall day but Gore Place and Marjorie's planning lends itself to multiple options, all of which made for a beautiful wedding and fun reception. We are very grateful that we were able our special day there and would recommend it to anyone planning a wedding.

We loved having our wedding at Gore Place! Marjorie helped us from start to finish, and was always upbeat and full of helpful hints and ideas. We enjoyed working with vendors that she recommended and the day itself went very smoothly. We were able to do a beautiful outdoor ceremony as well as enjoy the carriage house for cocktail hour and a tented reception. It was a great choice as well as reasonably priced venue for our wedding and Marjorie was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the months of planning.

I am still overwhelmed at how helpful Gore Place was in helping us organize our wedding. Marjorie helped recommend caterers and activities for our guests. She set up the favors/guest book table for us on the day of and made sure there were special tours of the mansion.
The estate itself is gorgeous. There are 2 venues - the carriage house for parties under 90 (which we used - it was FANTASTIC!) and a huge tent that can accommodate many more (250 or more?). They will only rent out one venue at any time so you know you are the top priority for your event.
As an added bonus, since we are Waltham residents we got a huge discount.
It was a fantastic day and my guests all raved about the venue. I highly recommend!
