My Top 3 wedding venues

So lets talk venues! this is prob one of the top 5 wedding planning priorities brides need to get booked before securing other vendors. A majority of my brides have told me they start looking up to 2 years out! 2 years??? yes! As a makeup artist and hairstylist I have had the pleasure of being able to travel to so many beautiful venues from top floor suites overlooking the Boston skyline to stunning blue ocean views of Cape Cod.

There have been many venues over the past 11 years but there have been a handful that have left me in awe. Not only are these venues stunning but the staff has been extremely customer service oriented and have treated us artists very kindly. It’s so hard to narrow them down but here it goes.

Willowdale Estate Topsfield, MA

Willowdale is stunning all year round the grounds are wonderfully maintained you can have your wedding either indoors or outdoors under a tent. One of the many reasons I love Willowdale is the character and overall vibe. The rooms where you set up to get ready have a good amount of light and plenty of space to set up both hair and makeup stations. Every time I work at Willowdale I get so excited.

Beauport Hotel Gloucester, MA

I am a total beach bum so how could I not have a venue near the ocean? The Beauport hotel is a new addition to Gloucester which has been predominantly the center of the fishing industry. If your looking for some amazing seafood this is the place to be! Each room has a great setup but being an artist who doesn’t want a room with a view? my favorite room has been the Ocean Front Jr. King suit with balcony. Perfect amount of lighting and view of the ocean what is not to love. Check them out! www.beauporthotel.com

Tupper Manor Beverly, MA

Tupper Manor is one of those venues that takes you back to another time from the fountain at the entrance, marble foyer, and architecture It is such an elegant venue. Ceremonies can be done outdoors or in their ballroom. Space is so important when setting up hair and makeup an area upstairs is where bridal parties can get ready and feel relaxed. This is perfect because everyone is together instead of being in different places and artists have to split up. Check them out! https://tuppermanor.com/tupper-manor
