If you're searching for a unique wedding venue just outside of Boston you must consider the Gardens at Elm Bank in Wellesley which is part of the MA Horticultural Society. Lush gardens, a historic mansion, outdoor ceremony location options and an elegant and rustic barn setting for the reception are only a few positive aspects of Elm Bank. As far as the opportunities for your wedding day portraits it's hard to find a better location. I love using the combination of the old mansion for the bridal party and family formals and then some more casual and fun portraits with the bride and groom all around the estate when time allows. Get a better feel for it by watching Johanna and Nick's celebration here:
If we're staying on the garden wedding theme and for some reason you can't book Elm Bank, I would imagine they are booked pretty far out in advance, another option would be the amazing Tower Hill Botanic Garden.
I absolutely love this image at Tower Hill with the setting sun behind the bridal party, cheering on the new bride and groom. So fun! You can find other Tower Hill Botanic Garden wedding photos in my wedding portfolio.
