About Independence Harbor

Independence Harbor is a wedding venue located in Assonet, Massachusetts. Wedding guests will feel as though they’ve stepped into a watercolor painting as they attend your garden ceremony, awash with vibrant hues. Month over month, the color palettes of the changing seasons serve as a new backdrop before which newlyweds can exchange their vows.

Facilities and Capacity

This 20-acre private estate was specifically designed with wedding ceremonies and receptions in mind. At Independence Harbor, couples have the choice of holding an indoor or outdoor ceremony. Outdoor ceremonies take place in the estate’s South Lawn Gardens. Each month of the year ushers in a new variety of colors and scents to envelop your senses. Chairs are carefully placed on their lush, green lawn, and situated in front of a classic white gazebo. Their indoor ceremonies allow couples to cozy up by the fire to say their vows in an intimate setting. A charming combination of hardwoods and stone masonry help to create an impression of warmth and familiarity. The reception facilities can accommodate up to 250 guests and include an indoor dining room and an outdoor patio. The view from the patio shows off the gardens while also offering sweeping views of the Assonet River. The dining room’s large windows bring the outside in as streams of natural light accentuate its bright and airy interior. As night falls and your reception gets underway, the polished inlaid-wood dance floor will beckon your guests as they delight in a night of celebration.

Services Offered

The staff at Independence Harbor is proud to provide couples with a variety of selections to customize their wedding. From table decorations to cuisine, they have staff on-site to help bring your vision to life. They offer professional wedding and event coordinators to provide support during the planning process. The food and beverage director can happily offer couples a complimentary menu tasting prior to their big day. For services that are not managed in-house, this venue can supply a list of vendors who have been vetted for quality and professionalism. Brunch wedding packages are available on weekends, for couples who want an alternative to the customary wedding ceremony and reception. This estate is also available to host your wedding shower.

    Great experience

    We planned our wedding in 5 months and the staff at IH made it a breeze! We enjoyed working with Anne & Connie. They both really made it very easy for us and our wedding day went perfectly. Shout out to Matt & the staff on our wedding day for making the day better than we even imagined!

    Don't be fooled by the bad reviews!

    After glancing over the very mixed reviews my husband and I went with hesitancy to view Independence Harbor. We met with Connie who at first came across somewhat stern but then after explaining what we wanted and our clear vision of our day she softened. We were able to take advantage of their off season rates which were VERY reasonable and fit in perfectly with our tight budget. Connie and Anne ALWAYS responded to any and all of my questions right away putting my anxious nature right at ease. Even at our final meeting Connie was EXTREMELY flexible as it was supposed to rain the day of and allowed the bridal party to be on site earlier than previously discussed. She also allowed my very good friend to set up the centerpieces for me the day of which relieved a lot of stress. Matt was on site that day and he made sure that everything went perfectly smooth from start to finish. I had forgotten to bring the card holder and he quickly stepped in to provide a make shift one until my mom arrived with the real one. I also have to give a shout out to Debbie. She was our hands on gal the ENTIRE day. Form the second we stepped out of the limo she was waiting there with an umbrella to walk us inside. She made sure we had drinks all night and even brought out appetizers for us while we were busy taking photos. It had stopped raining for photos and before we stepped foot inside the gazebo she had a linen cloth wiping down the edge of the gazebo so that my dress would not get wet. She truly paid attention to every detail and took care of us all night long. She also made sure that things were done on time and not once did I feel rushed. The food was incredible. My grandmother is a very picky eater and complains about EVERYTHING but she could NOT stop raving about how good the food was! All of our guests thoroughly enjoyed the food. My mother-in-law is extremely allergic to seafood and they paid close attention to detail and made absolutely sure that nothing was cross contaminated. Everything was labeled and they were sure to put the fish at the end of the buffet line covered so she would not have to go near it. I also can't forget about the grounds. They are absolutely stunning! All of our guests could not stop talking about how gorgeous the grounds and the inside of the building was. Connie may seem gruff at first meeting but let me assure you that these people have been doing this a very long time and they know what they are doing. Don't be fooled by the bad reviews they will be sure that your day goes better than you could have ever imagined!
