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.

    Amazing venue!

    We could not be happier with our wedding at Independence Harbor. Everyone was so professional, helpful, and knowledgeable. Connie and Anne were always available to answer any questions we had whether it be about the venue or wedding advice in general. On the day of our wedding, the staff made sure that I got some Mac and cheese from cocktail hour when I was taking pictures. The room was gorgeous and the passed appetizers were decorated with fruit art! Our guests could not stop talking about how great the food was and how comfortable the atmosphere was. We cannot thank you enough for all you did to support the best day of our lives.

    Beautiful Venue, Great Service!

    This review is long due! My husband and I are very happy with Independence Harbor. The garden view is beautiful and the service is amazing! All my family members and friends love taking pictures in the beautiful garden and inside the grant dining reception area. Connie and Amanda are quick to response throughout the planning. Matt and Stephanie are stars in coordinating with my Wedding Manager to run everything smoothly throughout the ceremony and the reception. Right at the beginning of the ceremony and during some part of the ceremony there was an unexpected quick rain shower. Staff were quick to respond in drying up the chairs and providing umbrellas just in case for another one. Well, we got a bonus from the shower! There's a rainbow above us during the ceremony!!! Priceless!!! All my friends and family gave great compliments about Independence Harbor, their service, and food! I would highly recommend this place to any couples! Thank you so much for making us feel so special on our big day!!!
