While summer is one of the most popular wedding seasons, we have a soft spot in our hearts for a beautiful spring wedding. Fresh blossoms, warm breezes, and stunning views makes spring a perfect month for a wedding in Cambridge Massachusetts. For couples hoping to exchange I do’s just across the Charles in Cambridge, we adore Adolphus Busch Hall at the Harvard Art Museums. With an elegant yet versatile courtyard, breathtaking hall, and central location to Harvard Square, it’s the perfect venue for a couple with ties to Cambridge or enchanted by the history and charm the neighborhood has to offer.
One of our favorite things about this wedding venue is its versatility. For couples hoping to exchange vows in a traditional church in an offsite ceremony, Adolphus Busch Hall is central to the Swedenborg Chapel and many other chapels and churches across Harvard Yard. Following a ceremony, you can meander back through the fresh blooms in Harvard Yard for dinner and a reception in the Romanesque hall.
For couples looking for an onsite ceremony, Adolphus Busch Hall has a breathtaking space for wedding ceremonies for up to 80 people. Create an elegant ceremony among the dramatic architectural features and adorning statuary throughout the hall. Then, invite guests to enjoy cocktails in the adjoining outdoor courtyard, a beautiful oasis filled with charm and elegance.
Like many who first see the courtyard, we are struck in awe of its serenity. With a gentle fountain, open greenery, and intricate statues and art surrounding it, it’s the perfect place for a garden-party style reception with a raw bar station. Or it can be transformed into an upscale reception before dinner with elegant small plates like our butter poached lobster with butternut squash risotto. We especially love the climbing vines along the outside of Adolphus Busch Hall transforming the entire reception to a European-style garden affair.
As a whole, Adolphus Busch Hall is a choice Cambridge wedding venue for a spring wedding. Call us today to book your date! 781.763.1333
