Top 20 Fabulous Boston Venues to have a Summer Wedding

We’ve assembled a list of the 20 hottest wedding venues in Boston to have a summer wedding. The videos below are trailers from each of these weddings at their respective venue.

This past summer have been a blast! We’ve shot from downtown Boston to the Cape and everywhere in-between. As professional videographers we see and hear everything on that special day. Breathtaking views and heart-felt vows. Every wedding trailer has some unique message and the venue plays a key roll in the whole day.

Here’s an [Ultra] short list of some of the ‘Best of Boston Wedding Venues of 2012’ We’ll be launching a Best of Fall to follow in a few months.
Weddings are not in any particular order.

To kick off this list, we felt the Ocean Edge Resort was one of the funnest venues on the cape this year. It’s so luxurious inside and out. Abby & Fred couldn’t have asked for a better day.

Granite Links Golf Club Located in Quincy, MA, this is a fabulous place for a wedding. Located just 10 minutes from downtown Boston, it’s really a perfect place to get married, and Erin & Mike took advantage of those beautiful rolling hills that you can’t find anywhere else!

Another great place is the Black Swan Country Club. Tucked away in Georgetown MA, and formerly called the Georgetown Country Club. This venue has a lot of amenities to offer. Great rolling greens and brand new landscaping were a beautiful combination for Anne & Nicholas!

This fantastic wedding took place at the Renaissance Boston. You can’t get any better than this venue. The attention to detail for Shikha & Derek was incredible for this traditional Indian, Hindu wedding.  Check out that parade!

This rainy yet elegant wedding was shot at the Biltmore in Rhode Island and the reception followed at Lake Pearl Luciano’s. A little bit of a commute to RI, but well worth the drive for Elizabeth & Daniel!

This Four Seasons wedding took place in middle of June, downtown Boston. Can’t get any better than this! Jessica & Derek had amazing formals in the Boston Commons followed by a knock out reception. This is one fabulous. Great DJing by Beat Train Productions too!

The Omni Parker House is known for it’s rich history and haunted rooms. It’s also where JFK was engaged. This old school venue was a great fit for Brittany & Brendan this summer.

One of the best couples of the year! So easy going and very cute. Held at the one and only Boston Seaport. Julie & Zach’s special day couldn’t have gone any better!  The bursts of bright yellow really made everyone feel sunny!

Can’t go wrong with a wedding at the State Room. Mia & Ringo sure know how to have a great time, from beginning to end, non-stop! We also love the choice of music they picked for the trailer. Enjoy!

Saphire Estate in Sharon, MA is one hidden gem of a venue. Stacey & Joe planned on an outdoor wedding but mother nature did not cooperate. Still a lovely day that made the ‘Best of’!

Another fantastic wedding at The Seaport. The ceremony wasn’t too shabby either!  Maria & Barrett had a classic wedding that was undeniably making this list! Also, love the Florence and the Machine music choice!

An amazing new venue for us this year is the Bedford Village Inn. A great place for a wedding in Bedford, New Hampshire.  Alexandra & Kevin had amazing weather and a beautiful service to boot.

Jackie & Tom made the most of out of their rainy wedding at the Boston Public Library. Great details from pre-ceremony to the reception.

Another hidden gem can be found at the Villa at Ridders Golf Course. Jessica & Brian had a great wedding party. So fun to be apart of this special day.  Got to love a nice Foo Fighters song for a trailer, too!

Martine & Jacob had amazing photos at the commons with unique ceremony and reception locales at the Boston Public Library. What more can we say about this one? Oh and the Park Plaza makes a cameo in this one.

One of our favorites for the summer of 2012. This wedding took place at the Boston Harbor Hotel. Very affluent & elegant in all aspects. Jacqueline & Brian were just a great young couple. We’re so happy for them.

Can’t go wrong with a luxurious wedding at the Wequassett, Cape Cod. This beach-front wedding was breathtaking. Formals on the beach & around the grounds. Natalie & Pete had a fabulous wedding!

The Smith Barn located in Peabody, MA is quaint and homey. Kristen & Chris were a wonderful couple and had a gorgeous wedding. Nice formals in the apple & pear orchards. Just amazing.

Haven’t shot here in a long time! We missed shooting here until this year. The Willowdale Estate is old and fashionable with many rooms you would get lost here in a second.  Kara & David had a great day and very touching.

Technically this was shot in the beginning of September. Does this count as fall yet? We love the Barn at Gibbet Hill it’s definitely worth a look. Donna & Steven will be on the top of the list this fall when the blog comes out later this year.
