I say this all the time, but we are so lucky to live in New England because of how close we are to so many different types of landscapes. Within 90 minutes of Boston we can be swimming in the cool, blue oceans of the Cape or climbing green mountains in New Hampshire. We have beautiful farms and classic barns, timeless estates and mansions, gorgeous gardens, bustling costal towns, and more.
After over 10 years of photographing weddings and sessions all over New England, I keep coming back to one of my favorite areas and that is the North Shore of Boston. There are so many amazing venues within just an hour of the city (or less) that have so much to offer.
The Best North Shore Boston Wedding Venues
Misselwood at Endicott College – Located on the rocky coast of Beverly, MA, Misselwood offers panoramic views of the ocean, a beautifully landscaped lawn, and a classic, timeless mansion as both a backdrop for photos and a great getting ready location. I love how many options we have for photos in such a close range of each other. There’s no need to leave the property the entire day, which is always the best!
Willowdale Estate – As soon as you drive up to Willowdale, you feel like you’ve left Boston and escaped into a European town with a romantic, historical mansion with a beautiful private patio and gardens. I think I could photograph here every weekend and never get bored. The lighting is beautiful, the patio is my favorite place to photograph and I love how the mansion and gardens look a bit different with every season.
Tupper Manor – The perfect mix of timeless estate and beachside portraits. Tupper Manor offers a little bit of everything. One of my favorite parts of this venue is the stunning back room: all white and full of windows- it makes for a great ceremony location and/or reception space.
The Crane Estate – I mean… The Crane Estate speaks for itself. It’s grand, it’s stunning, it offers so much variety: from the driveway, to the gardens, to the expansive lawn. Every single wedding here is so unique and so magical.
Grove at Briar Barn Inn – Think barn with a modern twist. Rustic and elegant. Intimate with so much to offer couples and guests. I couldn’t love this venue more!
Glen Magna Farms – Another beautiful, historic country estate! I love how private Glen Magna Farms feels, you could get lost in their beautiful gardens and trees. This venue makes a picturesque spot for family and engagement sessions as well!
