18 The Exchange Conference Center Reviews
Married on 06/30/2018
My husband and I got married at the Exchange Conference Center this June. I was interested in having a unique wedding venue and wanted to avoid getting married in a hotel ballroom. We had our ceremony ... Read more ceremony and reception at the Exchange and then had cocktail hour outside. We selected this venue because we loved the architecture of the old historic building and for its location directly on the water. One huge plus for us when we were choosing the Exchange was the rain back-up plan. If it rained on our wedding day we would be able to have cocktail hour upstairs on the second floor. Some places we looked at didn't have a great rain back-up plan. I love how easy the venue is to get to in Boston and all of the hotel options there are to choose from. We had our wedding block at the Renaissance Marriott as well as the Seaport Boston Hotel. Both are great options and walking distance for our guests once the night was over. We took family formal photos in front of the venue as well as in the back on the water. The photos came out great (I would highly recommend Andrea Servidone if you are looking for a photographer). We didn't use the getting ready rooms on the 3rd floor but hung out in them before the ceremony started. Lauren was our event coordinator and she was fantastic. Lauren made herself available to us whenever we had a question. We wanted to try our exact wedding meal before the big day and Lauren had everything packaged up for us to have at our home. The customer service that she showed us was really amazing. On the day of she made sure everything went smoothly. Nothing was out of place and it was exactly how I imagined it to look. The staff there is truly fantastic and so helpful and pleasant to work with. We really had a wonderful time and I cannot recommend the Exchange enough. One of the best parts of our wedding was during cocktail hour, being outside with our family and friends and watching all the sailboats go by was really a lot of fun. Everyone who attended

Everything was flawless!
We began working with Lauren and the team at the Exchange in November 2017 (in advance of our June 2019 wedding). Throughout the nearly year and a half the team was extremely responsive and ... Read more accommodating, and they provided amazing guidance. Our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception were all on-site, and everything was truly seamless. It seemed that our guests universally loved everything from the venue to the food (as did we!), and the day was truly perfect thanks to Lauren and the entire team.

We had both our ceremony and reception at The Exchange one month ago! If you are looking for a unique, upscale and memorable wedding venue in Boston, this is the ONE. It is an absolutely gorgeous ... Read more venue and on your wedding day, it looks even better! Michele and Alanna and their entire team are amazing. The food is extremely high quality. We had stations (sushi, carving, salad wall and dessert). Our guests have told us they ate more at our wedding than any other they have attended. People lost their minds over the sushi. The Exchange is located at the end of the fish pier in the Seaport...how could we not have sushi? The main room is spectacular. You will NOT get a better view in Boston. You are literally right on the harbor. You don't need to decorate much at all. You can rent lights from them for the ceiling, which I highly recommend. For flowers, use Artistic Blooms (Camille and Kelly)! They work with The Exchange regularly, so that part was seamless! We had a donut table for our late night snack. The team is so creative, they displayed them beautifully and again, guests are still talking about it. No other choice, but to use Kane's Donuts...best in Boston. Having our ceremony and reception at the same venue was a priority for us. Michele and Alanna made it all happen so perfectly and they made it seem effortless. I know it was not, but they remain so in control and professional...they make it all about the bride and groom. They are easy to talk with, they listen, they are responsive, they follow-up, they offer ideas and suggestions. It was a positive experience from beginning to end. We recommend The Exchange without reservation!! Good luck and congratulations!
