    The best decision we made!

    I highly recommend having your wedding at the Harvard Club! My fiancé and I looked at many venues in and around Boston, and none came close to the elegance and service that the Harvard Club provided. From our first introduction meeting with Jennifer, we felt so incredibly taken care of. Jennifer is thorough and masterful at coordinating weddings down to every detail. As a DIY bride without a wedding planner, it was so reassuring knowing Jennifer was thinking about our wedding just as much as I was.

    Harvard Hall is picturesque and was the perfect venue for our November wedding. The warm wood paneled walls and the live fireplaces created an ambiance that was sophisticated and unique. For my fiancé and I, our venue was one of the most important elements of our wedding. We didn’t want a country club or hotel ballroom. We wanted a room that would wow our guests and stand the test of time in pictures for decades. And that’s what we got!

    Everything we needed was at the Club - my bridesmaids and I were able to get ready starting early in the morning in a room in the Club, we left for the Church and came back in the evening for the reception. Having everything in one place (plus my husband and I staying there the night of our wedding) made everything run so smoothly. The staff took care of all our belongings to make sure they were safely stored in our room while we were at our reception. It couldn't have been easier!

    The food at the Harvard Club is prepared in-house and is exceptional. We were given many options for our courses as well as cocktail hour, and everything was memorable and perfectly prepared.

    I do not have anything critical to say of the Harvard Club. In all honesty, everything went off perfectly, Jennifer and the staff were the most gracious hosts and made our day flawless and worry-free. My fiancé and I made many decisions for our wedding over the course of our engagement, and now, two months after our wedding, I can say with certainty that our decision to have our reception at the Harvard Club was the best one we made.

    Perfection + Professionalism!

    We had a truly flawless experience working with Jennifer and the whole team at the Harvard Club for our October 2019 wedding. We first met with Jennifer about 16 months before the wedding to see the venue, and we knew we’d be making the right choice because of her professionalism and management expertise, something we had not seen when visiting other venues/venue managers. Jennifer exceeded our expectations every step of the way! She was responsive to our questions and flexible about our requests for certain elements of our wedding. She kept everything perfectly on schedule during the planning process and on the day-of. We really appreciated that Jennifer hid us away for a moment alone together after the ceremony to soak in the moment (and eat!) The venue itself is excellent, too. First, the food is UNBELIEVABLY delicious! Our guests were blown away by the meal, and my husband wishes we could go back just for the food! It really is high-end restaurant quality. The chef was also able to accommodate various dietary restrictions and allergies. The space is stunning—we knew we wanted to get married indoors but not at a traditional hotel, so this historic location was perfect for us. The photos you see online are nice but don’t come close to doing it justice. The space is magically transformed when you step in and see the high ceilings and beautiful décor. There actually are guest rooms upstairs, and our families found it super convenient to stay at the Harvard Club so we didn’t have to arrange transportation. We wouldn’t change a thing, and we 100% recommend this venue to other couples looking for an incredible experience!

  • Jenny's Wedding Cakes Wedding Cakes

    I've been working with the Harvard Club on weddings for several years and I cannot say enough great things about this quintessential Boston gem. The woodwork inside gives such a regal yet comforting feel, perfect for the couple who may be concerned about weather. This spot offers great local spots for photographic opportunities, or if you choose to not leave the gorgeous building there are beautiful and unique back drops for photos without stepping outdoors! Another important point is the fact that the decor lends itself to many different design options giving couples freedom to create unique settings. The food is amazing, just perfectly prepared, not too eclectic yet not simple in the least bit. Jennifer and the rest of the team and staff are wonderful, absolutely on top of every detail, and doing it with grace. Love this place!!!!!
