    A wonderful, intimate wedding at the Harvard Club!

    We had an incredible experience planning our tiny (7-person) wedding at the Harvard Club. We were originally planning to have a 200-person wedding in Rhode Island in October 2020. After we realized our big wedding could not happen this year due to the pandemic, we canceled those plans and reached out to Jennifer at the Harvard Club to explore the possibility of having our micro-wedding reception at the club. Fortunately, they already had options in place for small weddings and were available for our date. The experience from start to finish couldn't have been easier. Jennifer was very proactive in her communication and responsive to our specific questions and special requests. She helped us feel like we were still planning a very special day even if it had been downsized to the bare minimum. And truly, our reception at the Harvard Club was so special!

    We had a wonderful evening with our families in the Massachusetts Room. Although this isn't the room typically used for larger weddings, it is an absolutely stunning room and made for many beautiful photos. As for the meal - our families were blown away by the service and the food. I think my dad actually said it was the best meal he had had in years. In addition, given that we were having our wedding during a pandemic, everyone took the utmost care to make sure that we were safe and that all possible precautions were being followed.

    If you are considering having your wedding at the Harvard Club, you honestly cannot go wrong. Beyond being a beautiful space for a wedding of any size, the service, food, and experience were everything we could have asked for. Thank you, Harvard Club, for helping us re-envision our wedding plans and making it the most perfect day we could have imagined!

    The best wedding venue!

    The Harvard Club was the absolute best wedding venue! From the beautiful club space, to the top notch service, to the delicious food, and to most importantly working with Jennifer and her team - it couldn’t have been more perfect. We toured the space with Jennifer and knew right away that this was the venue we wanted and Jennifer was someone we wanted to work with.

    Leading up to the wedding, Jennifer worked with us to create our vision for the wedding and was available to answer the many questions we had (which were often lots and Jennifer was always responsive and so gracious). On the day of the wedding, Jennifer and the club handled everything, including coordinating with all of our vendors – me and my mom / bridal party didn’t have to worry about a thing which made the wedding day so enjoyable.

    The wedding venue is breathtaking and each room is rich in history and beautiful. We got married in December so the club was decorated with their holiday decorations. The decorations were festive and gave the club a nice holiday classic feel that was not overdone in any way.

    The food was amazing and our guests can’t stop talking about it. The club has many food options and they are extremely accommodating to any type of food allergy.

    We can't thank Jennifer and the Harvard Club enough for making our wedding day so perfect.

  • 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!!!!!
