We had a wonderful wedding at the Harvard Club.  Harvard Hall where we had our reception was magnificent and the Massachusetts Room for the ceremony was just stunning. We are already planning our 5 year anniversary party there – that’s how great it was.

I could not have been more pleased with how the club managed the planning process, but was even more thrilled with the day itself.   We could not have asked for a better venue and would highly recommend the Harvard Club to any friend.


On a scale of 1-10 The Harvard Club of Boston was a “20!” Food, service, staff and ambiance second to none. Best wedding experience I’ve ever had. Why have your wedding anywhere else?

You made it all look so easy. The food was delicious, I was told by many. I had to take their word for it since were having too much fun talking to people. Thanks for making me look like a brilliant hostess!

We had some unique requests to make our large wedding feel warm and intimate. The Club was supportive and flexible about helping us make it happen.  We would recommend The Harvard Club without reservations. Absolutely amazing!
