    Lyman is STUNNING and Nicole is the best

    Like many other COVID couples, we had to cancel our original large wedding plans with our original venue and find an alternate solution. We are so glad we decided to go with the Lyman Estate for our downscaled, socially distant 15-person wedding. Nicole Skarbek, the event coordinator at Lyman, was phenomenal: she is extremely knowledgeable, helpful, detail-oriented and creative in her work. You can truly tell that weddings are her passion and that she knows everything there is about how to plan a perfect wedding. Emails to her were always quickly responded to, and she went above and beyond to make sure our semi-DIY, rescheduled wedding we planned in 3 months was beautifully decorated, coordinated, and as safe as possible. We felt less stressed with her because we knew we were in good hands between her and Tastings (the exclusive caterer we used who was excellent). And the venue itself…Lyman is a truly STUNNING location which words can't describe. The first time we visited, our breaths were taken away, and every subsequent visit was awe-inspiring. During and after the wedding, our guests gushed about how beautiful Lyman was and how impeccably run our wedding was: one of our friends described it as being "like on a movie set" because of how beautiful it was and how incredibly quick and professional Nicole and Tastings were about setting up and transitioning during each part of the wedding. (Appropriate since Lyman was one of the film sets of Little Women as well.) We can't recommend Lyman Estate enough for weddings, especially for those who are looking for a venue that is respectful and extremely careful about safety protocols during the COVID pandemic.

    Amazing experience!

    We held fast and kept our plan of getting married at the Lyman after cutting our 150 guest count to 25. But throughout the whole process, Nicole was extremely supportive, responsive and communicative. She answered all my questions, even the silly ones and we were able to make our wedding perfect. The Lyman was a wonderful place to get married and I'm so glad we went with this venue!

    The Lyman Estate is among the most charming venues in the Boston area and their event coordinators do an incredible job running things smoothly. One of the times I worked there (the bride was a direct descendent of Theodore Lyman) an unexpected squall rolled into town just before the outdoor ceremony was supposed to begin, the venue had things set up in a tent in no time and the whole event didn't miss a step. They have always done a great job taking care of clients and it's a pleasure photographing weddings there.

  • CoolCityEntertainment DJ & Uplighting Service Wedding DJs

    I recently had the pleasure of being the DJ and MC for a wedding at the Lyman Estate on July 20, 2013. The entire staff at the Lyman was fantastic to work with. The venue itself as a whole offers a variety of options for its customers from being able to have an outdoor ceremony, a cocktail hour on the patio, and dinner either inside our outside. As a DJ, I was very happy to see there was more than ample room inside for dancing and a separate area where guests could take a quick break for coffee and desert. The venue had some recent updates, most notably to the HVAC system which allows for great air conditioning meanwhile maintaining the feel of nostalgia. The building was erected in the 1700's. The venue is conveniently located near Boston and a few major highways and has ample parking. I respectfully and overwhelmingly endorese this venue.
