Wonderful and unique setting!
We stumbled upon the Herreshoff Marine Museum after searching high and low for a venue that wouldn't feel like a typical wedding setting. Upon meeting their events manager, Elsie, we nearly signed the ... Read more contract on the spot. Elsie was such a joy to work with during the six months that we planned our day. We didn't have a coordinator, so Elsie helped us with a lot more than she needed to and we couldn't have been more grateful to her for that. I trusted her immensely and followed her advice whenever she suggested something because she's overseen dozens of events here. The spaces at the Herreshoff are very flexible for whatever kind of day you're planning. We ended up having a colder day in October, so the morning of our wedding, we decided to move our ceremony inside to the Hall of Boats instead of getting married out on the dock. We then had our cocktail hour and reception inside the tent and we couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. The Herreshoff asks that you work with one of their preferred catering vendors (which I honestly welcomed, since vetting vendors was sometimes the hardest part of planning), but really lets you work with whatever other vendors you'd like. I'm not the most creative person, so we really didn't do anything to the space and it turned out beautiful. With that being said, if you're looking for a blank canvas, the Herreshoff can absolutely be that as well! All in all, we're so happy that we found Elsie and the Herreshoff.

The Herreshoff Marine Museum was the perfect and most nautical spot to get married. The surrouding views of the Bay and the sunset make for a stunning setting to tie the knot. The museum itself is a ... Read more sailboat/ocean/nautical lovers paradise. It was such a unique and memorable place to begin the rest of our lives with the ones we love. We were married and June and our guest are still raving about how beautiful fun and unique our wedding was. We wish we could do it over and over again! We did not have to worry about a single thing because the even cordinator was experienced and very professional.
