What our clients have to say:

"We had our daughter's wedding at Elm Bank and there aren't enough superlatives to describe what a beautiful site this is to hold a wedding. From our first visit to the wedding weekend, the functions manager responded to all of our questions and followed up in a timely manner. We had a fall wedding and the grounds were a glorious backdrop to our outdoor ceremony."

"We were so happy to have our daughter's wedding ceremony and reception at Elm Bank. It really was the most beautiful, perfect place to host a wedding, and was exactly what we wanted, after looking at 15 possible wedding venues. We loved the variety that Elm Bank offered - ceremony in the Italianate Garden, cocktails and appetizers in Weezie's Garden, dinner and speeches in the Carriage House, and dancing, dessert and bar in the tent."

"We had our wedding at Elm Bank. The cocktail hour was outside in the gardens and the reception was inside the Hunnewell Building. We received so many compliments for having it at such a unique and beautiful location. The grounds were incredibly well kept up, and we could not have been happier with our decision. It made for some gorgeous photos! The staff was also incredibly helpful and such a joy to work with!"
