Boston Public Library and The Catered Affair have combined strengths to bring you Boston's most unique wedding venue in the heart of Copley Square. The BPL has a variety of event spaces ranging from the intimate to the impressively grand. The beautiful Italianate courtyard can make any ceremony or cocktail reception unforgettable. Continue the evening in the Guastavino Room or Bates Hall where guests can dine under beautifully ornate ceilings and amongst hundreds of books. Looking for a more modern atmosphere? The newly renovated Johnson Building is the perfect backdrop with floor to ceiling windows, wide open space, and crisp and colorful lines.
The Catered Affair will customize your wedding to reflect your personal style and taste. From the formal to the informal, from intimate to grand – We pride ourselves in our relationship with you, your family and your guests.
Weddings at the Library take place on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays after the building has closed to the public. For more information, please contact the Special Events Department at 617.859.2282 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Very professional and organized. Great vendor to work with at a beautiful venue!
Performing at 500 events per year, we work with many different caterers. TCA @ the BPL always delivers first class service from small intimate social gatherings to huge corporate events and upscale weddings. They are so on top of their game, all we do is go with the flow of the night and follow their lead. So everything from introductions of a wedding party, to signature moments like toasts, speeches, cake cutting, parent dances, etc...always flow seamlessly. Their clients get to sit back and just enjoy their party. It is truly an honor to be partners with such an amazing company. They even reach out to all their vendors the week of the event to ensure everyone is clear about load in, set up, load out and of course the overall event time line. Their organization is superb and we sincerely appreciate all of their attention to detail. On top of all that, everyone is so friendly and accommodating, we've become good friends with many of their event producers and other staff members. Just a top notch company all around.
