Hampshire House: 2016 Engagement Celebration
Posted on: January 19, 2016

Calling all brides-and-grooms-to-be! Join a choice list of wedding vendors, staff and wedding planners at Hampshire House for a one-night-only wedding open house set in the historic Hampshire House on Beacon Street. On Thursday, Jan. 28, 2016 from 6 to 8 p.m. you’ll get the chance to experience first-hand the beauty and elegance of Hampshire House, Beacon Hill’s most enchanting turn-of-the-century estate.

This elegant, garden party-themed event is also a great chance for couples who have already booked Hampshire House for their big day to mingle with our staff, get comfortable in the mansion, and meet and greet the area’s best vendors. All guests will receive complimentary food and cocktails plus one-on-one access to valuable wedding industry professionals who can make that special day an event to remember.

The garden party theme is sure to impress engaged couples who dream of bringing an outdoor spirit to their indoor venue. Play a game of croquet upstairs or meander in and out of rooms to experience the meticulously restored, Georgian charm of our historic estate. You’ll get to have fun while checking off essential wedding planning details — from nailing down your photographer to developing a décor scheme.

This isn’t your average wedding event. We have hand-selected the area’s best vendors for a curated bridal event that’s not overwhelming or cliché. You’ll get the chance to meet with top performers and DJs, photographers, florists, wedding officiants, designers, make-up artists, bakers and an insider from Boston Wedding Magazine. Browse our complete list of vendors below to learn more about these great professionals.
