The care and professionalism that was shown to us for our daughters wedding by Michele and the entire Hampshire House staff ensured the success of our event. We could not have found a more perfect venue to celebrate our daughters wedding.
The Hampshire House is the best place to have a beautiful Boston wedding. The rooms overlook the Public Gardens and are so elegant in every season.
Michele G. handled every detail of our wedding and made it such an easy and wonderful experience. She is an an amazing wedding and event planner, detail orientated, and a pleasure to work with. She thinks of everything and on the wedding day itself - everything went seamlessly, just perfect!
The entire staff was amazing, friendly and kind. The menu selections are amazing and you can really create your own unique dinner - guests will love being able to choose their own entree!
The food was so delicious and guests loved it!
If you want the perfect "Boston" wedding, call Michele G. at the Hampshire House!
We had an amazing experience at Hampshire House from start to finish! It is truly a one-of-a-kind place and we had an unforgettable winter wedding. Thanks to Cecile and team for their hard work and dedication. I highly recommend Hampshire House to anyone for any event - they are incredible!
Best experience we have had! The Hampshire House is a first class venue with phenomenal service and staff. Amanda made our day more amazing than we could have imagined.
We are so thrilled that we chose to have our wedding dinner at the Hampshire House! Not only was it a beautiful and convenient location in downtown Boston, but the entire staff - from Michele who met with us multiple times to create a perfect dinner setting that was unique to us - to the dinner staff who were so professional and on the ball - were fantastic! It felt like we were having a meal at home - and the food was delicious! I would highly recommend.
I would definitely recommend Hampshire House to anyone looking for an elegant, intimate setting for their wedding. We had a total of 10 guests (including the bride and groom!) and used the Thayer Room for our day time ceremony and reception. The space did not feel oversized for our small gathering, and the views of the Boston Public Gardens were stunning. The rooms look even more beautiful in person, and we were able to light the fireplace for the event despite it being July! The food, cake, and service were amazing. The location was great for taking photos at Boston Public Gardens and nearby Acorn Street. I had such a fun day! 10/10 would get married here again (to the same person, wink wink)
We could not have been happier with our wedding reception at the Hampshire House. The venue itself is gorgeous, with an impressive entry stairway (great for photos!), plenty of space to gather by the bar, sumptuous wood paneling in the “library” area (with windows overlooking the Public Garden) and beautiful details that suggest the lost elegance of a time gone by. As you ascend the stairs, you almost feel as if you are transported back in time, attending a 19th century soiree in a Back Bay/Beacon Hill salon. The location definitely helps this vibe – the Hampshire House, right above the landmark “Cheers” bar on Beacon Hill, is located in the heart of Boston and is everything you’d expect. Perhaps more impressive than the location or the atmosphere, and in my mind even more important, was the top notch staff. Amanda and her team are second to none. The teams’ responsiveness & professionalism during the planning stage, their ability to execute timing of all portions of the reception (while maintaining the flexibility necessary to accommodate last-minute wedding day issues that ALWAYS arise) was spot-on, and competence of the wait-staff greatly impressed us. Last but not lease – THE FOOD. Since our wedding, the guests have been raving about the venue in general but specifically the menu, which was, some of the best food we have ever had. It seemed like specifically the steak and other beef-based dishes received rave reviews, as well as sea-food oriented options (one appetizer included a lobster roll - perfect for Boston in the summertime!). All up, we could not have asked for a better venue and would wholeheartedly recommend the Hampshire House to anyone.
Absolutely book them. This is an amazing team; they take care of everything, which allowed me and my bride to enjoy our event, and they were perfectly able to accommodate any changes we wanted to make to their package. I can't recommend Hampshire House highly enough.
highly recommend Hampshire House
We loved our wedding here! Everyone keeps telling me that the food was amazing and the rooms were beautiful. We had around 80 people and the size was perfect. Don't forget to order the doughnut bar, people loved it!!!!
Thank you for choosing the Hampshire House for your wedding. It has been a pleasure to work with you on your wedding. Best wishes to you & John.
Absolutely gorgeous venue, wonderful communication while planning the wedding (and we were planning the wedding via a phone and e-mail from a foreign country!) and during the event (including calling to find one of our outside vendors who was running late). The HH was also so gracious in their accommodating our guests with allergies and physical challenges. The service during the luncheon was spectacular too. We would recommend the Hampshire House to anyone looking to have a more intimate affair in this classic Boston venue.
Thank you for your gracious review of the Hampshire House, we are honored that you choose to celebrate your wedding day with us. Best wishes as you begin your marriage.
This venue was the absolute perfect choice for our small, intimate wedding! We worked with Michele who was incredibly helpful and a great resource. The rest of the staff was great, the food was delicious, and the venue (and the view!) are beautiful. We highly recommend the Hampshire House!!
Thank you for your kind review, it has been a pleasure to work with you and Dylan on your wedding. Best wishes to you both
They were absolutely perfect.
Hampshire House was a beautiful venue for a wedding. We had a party of around 100 people, and the place was stunning. I can highly recommend it. The interior is exquisite, the food was excellent, and the staff were really easy to work with. Plus, it's centrally located and easy to get to, and you can do wedding photos in the public gardens. To cap it all off, Hampshire House was significantly cheaper than other places in the area that we looked, particularly for a day wedding.
Thank you for choosing the Hampshire House for your wedding. It was a pleasure to work with you and your guests. Best wishes!
Just married a week ago: We had a wonderful experience working with Amanda and Sally at Hampshire House for our wedding reception. Their conscientiousness made for an easy working relationship; planning and executing the wedding was seamless. Everything flowed like clockwork. Plus, the space is beautiful and was absolutely perfect for our intimate wedding. And the guests loved the food! That never happens at weddings! We strongly recommend them.
We are so happy that we chose Hampshire House as our ceremony and reception venue!!! Their service is professional and phenomenal. The food is excellent, and the decor is classic. All our guests were very impressed and happy. Michele was our wedding venue coordinator. She provided tremendous help and advice during our planning! Without her, everything couldn't have come together so nicely on our wedding day!
Beautiful venue .Excellent food. Couldn't be any happier !!
The Hampshire House was absolutely phenomenal. We had such a fantastic experience with them. From the beginning, they were happy to answer all our questions and they worked with us to create a menu that didn’t scream wedding and was a little bit off the beaten path. Michele and the other women we worked with were prompt with their email responses and were on top of everything.
We were so happy with what was included in the wedding package. We live in Texas so finding a venue that took care of a lot of the major things and helped us keep the number of vendors we had to work with down was important to us. Also, the space was so beautiful on it’s own, we didn’t feel the need for any outside decor.
Our wedding day went perfectly. The shift from downstairs to upstairs was smooth; our guests always knew where to be and the transition helped keep the party fresh. The food was fantastic. People are still talking about the beef tenderloin we had. The Hampshire House made up plates for my husband and I so that we were able to eat. They also brought out kids plates that had chicken tenders and french fries, which was a big hit with the little ones and their parents. Several people told us that the bar selection was “the best they’d seen at a wedding.” We went with the standard table setting that was included in the package; it looked clean and classy. The service throughout was fantastic. The line at the bar was never too long. Michele kept things 100% stress free for my husband and I and our guests so we were free to enjoy the party. We really couldn’t have asked for more.
We are so happy we went with the Hampshire House; weeks later, we’re still talking about how awesome things went. The location, the gorgeous rooms, the fantastic food, the impeccable service; all for a price that was more than fair. I highly recommend checking out the Hampshire House!
If you are looking for a beautiful space for your ceremony and venue that comes with staff that is extremely helpful, professional, and wonderful, LOOK NO FURTHER!
My husband and I wanted a ceremony and reception in a space that was very "Boston" and unlike anything anyone has ever seen before. We didn't want the standard "hotel" wedding and reception, but something very personal, elegant, and charming. This was the place for us the moment we stepped inside. The space requires little to no added decor and all of your wedding photos will be stunning! Additionally, it overlooks the public garden (which is also a great place for photos!) and is steps away from Acorn street in Beacon Hill.
The staff were incredibly helpful! Sally was SUPER in making sure each detail was to our liking (even made sure some last minute changes were made). And provided so much calm when things overwhelmed me. She was incredibly responsive over email and phone and would never leave me without an answer (and I often emailed her A LOT!). No question was too big or too small!
The food (and presentation of the food) was delightful. Your guests will truly enjoy every bite! (The food tasting was also so much fun -- they make you feel like celebrities).
They are helpful when it comes to budgeting and understanding what to budget for. They are sensitive and never try to "sell" you on more. It felt like you were planning your wedding with family.
We went with the seated dinner package and had the cake included. Their cake vendor did a great job designing a cake that was "us" and it was VERY delicious as well.
I can't recommend Hampshire House more!!
Living in the London and getting married in Boston, we were really dreading the wedding planning process. However, the entire staff at the Hampshire House made it easy! We initially dealt with Michele and then Hailey who were both absolutely wonderful. My mother was able to go see the venue and take pictures and videos to send to us and Hailey was so quick to respond to any questions we had about the venue. After we booked our date, we were able to make a trip over to visit and were guided on a tour and through our tasting and all the options available to us. Without Hailey I think we would have been quite overwhelmed! Neither of us had clear ideas about what we wanted, but she had a lot of great suggestions without being the slightest bit pushy.
We had 46 guests in the 2nd floor and everything- expertly coordinated by Hailey- went perfectly. The venue is gorgeous (didn't need a lot of decoration or flowers) and had a million great photo spots. Our guests are still talking about the incredible food and service. We felt completely taken care of from the moment we first got in touch and we can't recommend this venue and its staff enough! Thank you!!
Finding and choosing the Hampshire House is one of my proudest decisions I have ever made in my life. All of our guests speak highly of the Hampshire House, a place of warmth, intimacy and elegance. The third floor suite is especially well designed for a small intimate group around 25 people, like us. Our special thanks to Hailey Guzman, our catering manager, for her extraordinary coordination work for our wedding. She is professional, enthusiastic, considerate, and easy to work with. We would also like to thank all her colleagues whom we had worked with throughout the process - chef at the tasting and the wedding date, assistants at the wedding date to help with the set up, music and everything... They are amazing. They had truly made our wedding a memorable experience. We highly recommend the Hampshire House without reservation. We are confident that couples-to-be will not regret choosing the Hampshire House for their big day!
Every single one of our guests told us it was the best wedding they have ever been to. It was a beautiful location that let us have a really good time. I literally did not worry about anything leading up to the day because I knew everyone there knew exactly what they were doing! I cannot say enough good things and I really would not change one thing about the night. It was PERFECT!
We recently hired the Hampshire House for our wedding in early April 2015 and from the initial discussions re booking the venue to the day after the wedding, the Hampshire House staff could not have been more helpful.
Michele, Daniela and the whole team were extremely professional, patient, quick to respond to all questions and were so flexible in meeting our requirements - from providing specific wines for family tables only to the use and positioning of a Lego display constructed by one of the younger ushers.
The venue itself is extremely pretty and is ideal for a wedding for 40 to 100 guests - intimate without feeling too confined. Our wedding was based on the 2nd and 3rd floors and having guests move between the two floors (from wedding ceremony to cocktail reception to dinner to dessert to dancing) worked really well and meant guests did not get cabin fever by being in only one room for the entire event. How the Hampshire House staff 'flipped' the main room two times in the evening so quickly I will never know but the layout for the dinner was gorgeous.
Almost one month on from the wedding, I am still getting comments about the high quality of the food provided by the Hampshire House. Our wedding was a transatlantic affair with many guests traveling from the UK and everyone from both sides were really impressed by the presentation and, more importantly, the taste of all the courses served. We also opted for the premium beverage package and the waiting and bar staff were exceptional in dealing with a very thirsty crowd and the dirty martinis were worth the upgrade alone.
All in all, our wedding was the best night of my life and so much of that is down to the venue and the dedication and service provided by all at the Hampshire House. I could not recommend the venue enough to anyone.
My wedding was the most amazing night of my entire life. Hailey was absolutely amazing! She helped us plan our wedding in a matter of three weeks! We had 52 guests and each and everyone of them still talks about our wedding. The food was beyond delicious. I have no words to describe how great the service was during the wedding. My guests even knew the servers' names. Hailey truly was amazing, she listened to me and helped me find my inner bride. She is truly good at what she does, I have already recommended Hampshire House to friends!
The team at the Hampshire House was so helpful in walking through all of the details of our wedding ceremony and reception following. We had several special requests ranging from food allergy accommodations to a non-wedding cake dessert service, all of which they handled with courtesy and professionalism. We worked with the team to bring our clothes for the wedding the day before at the rehearsal so that we could change at the Hampshire House and the staff there kindly had bottled water and sodas in the changing space for us.
For the ceremony, the team sat down with us to discuss specifics of the service to make sure that they understood what we wanted and talked with us about how their team would be able to best help make the vision come to life. We would definitely recommend working with the Hampshire House team-- they do a fantastic job of taking the stress and worry out of wedding planning.
