Here at GreenUpside, we’ve done a great deal of meticulous research to bring you this compilation of our absolute favorite garden wedding venues in Massachusetts.
Each of these 7 venues are special for their own reasons. For some, it’s their history, for others, it their sophistication or their rustic charm. One thing these venues all have in common, though, is their unbelievably beautiful, well-appointed gardens and landscapes!
I simply cannot wait any longer to share these findings with you.
So, without further ado, let’s get into it!
7 Gorgeous Garden Wedding Venues in Massachusetts:
- Coachmen’s Lodge

- Independence Harbor
- Willowdale Estate
- Quonquont Farm
- Five Bridge Inn
Keep in mind, these venues are not in any particular order.
I would award each of these venues with 5 stars, so I would truly recommend any on this list. I do, however, think some of these may be a better fit than others depending on what features are most important to You and your bride-or-groom-to-be.
So, let’s begin by talking about the best parts of each venue.
Then, at the end, we can go over some of the specs (I’ll include a chart for all you analytical decision-makers…I promise).

719 Cabot Street Beverly, MA 01915
Okay, this place is huge.
& I mean HUGE.
Overlooking Wenham Lake, Moraine Farm is a glorious wedding venue sitting on 175 acres of unprecedented natural beauty. If you’re looking to feel one with nature (and your SO, of course) – then look no further. This countryside venue is truly a breath of fresh air. (No, literally, it’s surrounded by alpine forests and crisp, clean air.)
The vast grounds of this awe-inducing estate includes a larger-than-life stretch of lush green lawn, an elegant Tea House, a serene brick patio overlooking the lake, and artful stone walls.
In addition to the abundance of incredible plants, trees, and flowers, the landscapes are made complete by artful stone walls and an ivy-covered stone bridge – perfect for photos!
I know I’ve already mentioned that this place is huge, but with the ability to accommodate up to 350 guests, this place is Amazing, to boot! Many reviews for this venue rave about the unprecented, top-notch service as well as the absolutely delicious, locally-sourced food from Fireside Catering!
Best of all, though, is the sophisticated, white reception tent perfect for outdoor garden weddings that truly stay outdoors – regardless of whether it rains (in spring, summer, and even fall)!
164 Massapoag Ave Sharon, MA 02067
Overlooking Lake Massapoag, Saphire Estate is a large and lavish garden venue with a stunning white manor and grounds that appear as though they’ve been taken straight from a storybook. The unobstructed views of the glimmering lake, perfectly-appointed gardens, and pristine wooded areas make this place truly unforgettable.
Spectacular photo opportunities await – whether front of one of the elegant outdoor water fountains, in the alpine woods surrounding the lake, on Lake Massapoag’s sandy border, or inside the luxuriously decorated ballroom.
Saphire Estate has a special cocktail reception area with a grand fireplace, glistening chandeliers, and a cocktail bar that looks sparkling and new.
As a matter of fact, just about every inch of this place looks sparkling and new, so don’t forget to take in the beauty of this place’s grand masonwork.
It’s obvious that those who run this family-owned estate are passionate about providing top-notch service – and with the number of married couples raving about their experiences and Saphire Estate’s next-level professionalism – I’d say the passion shows!
If this place sounds too good to be true, you’ll just have to see it for yourself!
10 Narrows Road Assonet, MA 02702
Where to begin with this breathtaking venue? Let’s start with our favorite part: the landscape! This private estate stretches out over 20 gorgeous acres with views that are nothing short of magical. Whether you’re staring out at the vast green lawns, the seemingly endless display of colorful flowers, or the tranquil view of the Assonet River, this place is truly a sight to be seen.
I should probably emphasize the beauty of these landscapes a bit further (because this venue surely warrants the added emphasis.)
While each and every venue has something that makes it special (and therefore, I recommend looking at each of these venues)… You’re not going to find an outdoor oasis quite like this anywhere else.
Also, with a property this large, you can rest assured that there will be plenty of room for your guests to spread out and make themselves comfortable (up to 250 guests, to be exact)!
In addition to outdoor landscapes straight out of a magazine, this property includes cozy indoor accomodations complete with a bright and uplifting ambience, warm lighting, charming hardwood accents, and stone masonry.
So whether you’re cozying up by the fire, relaxing on the attractive and spacious patio deck, or showing off your best moves on the dance floor – Independence Harbor will be sure to fit the bill!
