Hey Boston brides! Are you searching for a quintessential New England venue to host your dream wedding? If so, look no further than the Boston Public Library, an iconic site that makes for some seriously incredible nuptials.

While there are several gorgeous rooms to choose from for your wedding day we love Bates Hall, seen above. Like the rest of the venue, this space features unique architecture, incredible pained windows, and unique details, like antique table lighting and, of course, rows of beautifully bound books. Plus, there's plenty of outdoor space to utilize if you love the idea of an event that can move seamlessly between inside and out.

To make your planning a breeze, the Boston Public Library features an in-house caterer, The Catered Affair, that helps create your dream dinner menu. Their extensive menu features everything from butternut squash soup and champagne risotto to steak Frites and s'mores on a stick. Their offerings aren't just limited to hors d'oeuvres, main courses, and desserts either. They offer late-night snacks like mini pizzas and burgers, plus specialty cocktails, too.

Although the food and gorgeous space alone are enough to make any bride swoon, those are just the very beginning of the perks you get when you decide to tie the knot here. With each wedding package you have the opportunity to extend your party beyond the reception. An additional rental is available from 10 p.m. until midnight so you can keep the merriment lasting well into the evening.
