  • We could not imagine a more beautiful venue for our wedding. Kayleigh was a delight to work with. She was responsive, attentive, and worked hard to give us a day we wouldn't forget. The grounds are gorgeous and our guests raved about gardens.

  • After looking at a bunch of wedding venues, we visited Elm Bank and immediately knew it was our venue. It’s one of the most beautiful gardens and settings in New England. The Italianate garden is the perfect, fairytale-level ceremony setting, the children’s garden was fantastic for our guests during cocktail hour, and we not only had a great dinner but turned all the way up for the reception/party in the carriage house/tent! Kayleigh was so responsive in working with us, answering our questions, re-arranging our tables, and working with our vendors. Trish was invaluable on the day of to make sure everything ran smoothly. If you want the best of both indoor and outdoor settings, book Elm Bank!

  • Working with Kaylee and the team from the beginning to the final goodbye was an absolute joy. It was everything we hoped for and Kaylee and her staff made a beautiful setting all that much better. Could NOT have been smoother and they all were friendly, helpful, and professionals at making dreams come true. I speak for [the bride] and [the groom] and his family. ALL of our guests said it was the best wedding they have ever attended… and we saw that feeling reflected in their faces all night long. We will heartily recommend The Gardens to any of our friends looking for a place for a special event.

  • Elm bank was absolutely stunning - the gardens gave us so many options for how we wanted to arrange the guest seating, and they were very cooperative with ensuring we knew about rain options, and the different locations we could use for different events the day-of. Highly recommend! In particular, Kayleigh and Mary Kate were a huge help, super communicative and responsive, and provided a day-of coordinator who we met in advance to be on site the whole day with us. They also gave great recommendations for vendors who we ended up using.

  • Elm Bank was the dream location for our wedding. We actually booked it without seeing it first, since we live in San Francisco, but have family in Boston. A family member went in the middle of the winter and even said it was beautiful (without flowers, etc). We wanted a place that was outdoors, and beautiful without doing too much to it. The best part of Elm Bank is the ability to use any of the gardens for your wedding, we used the Italiante for the ceremony, and the Weezy’s children’s garden for cocktail hour. Our guests were definitely in awe of the place. We lucked out and had 3 hours of sun on our wedding day (torrential downpour the morning of....) but we were going to still have it outside even if it was light rain, that is how gorgeous it was. I loved that we were able to do exactly what we wanted at Elm Bank. My Dad made handmade corn hole boards and welcome signs that we had during cocktail hour, we decorated the bars how we wanted, and brought in our own decor for t... Read more

  • My husband and I got married on Sept. 28 at the Gardens at Elm Bank and we could not have had a more perfect day. Mary Kate and her team were absolutely fantastic and made sure that everything went smoothly! The venue is absolutely gorgeous and gives you a completely secluded, private space for your ceremony and/or reception. We had our ceremony and cocktail hour outside in the garden spaces and our reception inside the carriage house. Our guests were so impressed - we received compliments all night and people are still talking about it! It's a hidden gem of the area and truly a memorable place. Thank you SO MUCH to Mary Kate and Elm Bank - we could not be happier with how our big day went :)

    Congratulations Audrey & Chris! Your day was absolutely stunning and we're so happy to hear that you and your guests enjoyed every minute! With love, Kayleigh, Mary Kate & The Gardens at Elm Bank Team!

  • The Gardens at Elm Bank is absolute perfection! From our first meeting to the entire process, everything was very smooth. We were initially attracted to this spot because of the gardens and they did not disappoint. Mary Kate and Kaleigh were always quick to answer our questions, even offered suggestions on things to do. It was so great to have the wedding ceremony, reception and photos all in one location! There are so many options when it comes to customize and design your wedding whether it the Carriage House or renting a tent. We knew our guests would love exploring the gardens before the ceremony or during the cocktail hour. The Carriage House is charming for our reception but is such a marvelous place, it could’ve been transformed to whatever we desired, even weather permitting a ceremony spot. Elm Bank’s preferred vendors are certainly the way to go when determining caterers or lighting designs. We did find it beneficial to have a wedding planner or coordinator to help facil... Read more

  • The venue is a beautiful setting with lots of options to accommodate any number of guests and styles of wedding. Mary Kate, Kayleigh, and Trish were incredibly helpful, responsive and invested in all things we asked of them. Outside of their direct responsibilities, they were full of suggestions for ideas for how we could make our dream day come true. Mary Kate even helped set up lawn game activities for our cocktail hour! We highly recommend having your wedding here. Thank you Elm Bank for hosting us on our best day ever!

  • We could not have asked for a better venue. Elm Bank was the perfect size for our 180 person head count and our guests have not stopped raving about the location. The Italianate garden was such a beautiful and elegant backdrop for our cocktail hour and the carriage house was exactly what we were looking for in our reception location. There's a lot of freedom to customize the space they way you want and we highly recommend this venue for couples who have a strong vision of the way they want their space to look.

  • Elm Bank is a beautiful venue and everything was perfect from beginning to end. The exceptionally beautiful gardens are truly magical and the staff was outstanding. The weight limit for the bridge was the most challenging part of planning because of transportation, but it worked out that Uber/Lyft were readily accessible for guests and we booked smaller shuttles for family/wedding party. Kayleigh was helpful with initial planning and vendor suggestions throughout. When we went to drop things off a few days before the wedding, the space we were supposed to use had been taken over by another wedding so they found us safe space in a totally different building! On the day of the event, Kristina and Jeanette were amazingly attentive and anticipated every need throughout the evening. They could not have been better. Thank you to everyone at Elm Bank!

  • We were so lucky to get married this summer at the Gardens at Elm Bank. The venue itself is the most beautiful garden around, with many different areas to host your event. The staff was amazingly helpful and accommodating to work with, thank you Kayleigh!! The Carriage House offers a beautiful white backdrop for you to totally customize your vision and choose all of your vendors in the midst of a fairytale-like beautiful grounds. We will continue to come back visit the happiest place ever, thank you Elm Bank!!

  • Elm Bank is the one of the most gorgeous and unique wedding venues I have ever been to - and something we heard over and over again from our guests. We were so excited to have our wedding at the Gardens at Elm Bank (August 2019) and our wedding day exceeded all of our expectations. The Italianate Garden where we were married was gorgeous - the flowers perfectly complimented our ceremony and made for the perfect backdrop. Cocktail hour was gorgeous outside and the bistro lighting and drapery in the Hunnewell Building and attached tent continued to provide an amazing ambiance for our wedding. The staff, especially Kayleigh, were so great to work with. Kayleigh went above and beyond in every interaction we had and I was lucky to have her working our wedding - she is amazing and so so sweet! Kayleigh and the Elm Bank staff also have developed great relationships with some of the industry's best vendors - which made asking for suggestions and vendor management that much easier.

  • We recently had my daughter's wedding in a tent (Sperry Tents) in the Gardens at Elm Bank. It was so beautiful. I cried when I saw the tent all set up because it was exactly as we had imagined. The gardens are so beautiful for photo's, cocktail hour etc. It was a little stressful worrying about rain but thankfully it held off until the second we boarded the busses to leave!!!! Kayleigh, Mary Kate and Christina were great to work with and all of the vendors were phenomenal and worked well together. It was a fairy tale wedding and a dream come true. I highly recommend the Gardens at Elm Bank for your wedding or next event.

    Mary, it was such a pleasure to work with you and your family for Liz & Brett's wedding! It was truly stunning and we couldn't be happier that the weather cooperated for such a magical day! We are eagerly awaiting photos!! Best Regards, Kayleigh & The Gardens at Elm Bank Team

  • The team at Elm Bank is amazing! They always had a quick turnaround when I had questions, even before we booked our date. On the day of my wedding, Christina was awesome getting myself and my bridal party everything we needed. The venue is on the expensive side and you will need to research and work with several outside vendors. However I would choose Elm Bank again in a heartbeat, it's completely worth it!

    Thank you for your review, Tisha! It was wonderful to work with you and Steve and we hope to see you back in the gardens to enjoy them once again!
