Description:

A wedding at the Boston Public Library will be one for the books. This beautiful building is located in the bustling, chic neighborhood of Back Bay. The original property boasts a sweeping marble staircase and the soaring, well-known Bates Hall, which reaches into the city’s English roots with its richly-colored wood panels and ornate detailing. Ceremonies take place in the stunning courtyard, with a trickling sculpture fountain as the centerpiece. The colonnade and arches lend symmetry and harmony to setting. When it comes to the celebration that follows, there are many available, sophisticated locations. You can journey to Italy with a reception in the Guastavino Room, while the tea rooms are lovely for hosting a cocktail hour. The Boylston Room has a Beauty-and-the-Beast literary feel, and the Puvis de Chavannes Gallery has all the grandeur you would expect from a fine art museum.
