The Harvard Club in dowtown Boston is a wonderful mix of old world elegance (deep rich woods and leathers) with a touch of modern (vibrant fabrics and large windows encompassing fabulous city views). Two of our friends are getting married there late summer/early fall and I think they have picked a great location.

When you first step off the elevator, you are greeted to a warm and welcoming lobby.

Just a few steps to your right, you get this stunning view of Boston. Actually you get a great view of the city from every room. This is the side where you would most likely have your ceremony and your cocktail hour. What a treat for your guests.

A cozy spot for you and your guests to relax and enjoy the view.

This fantastic mural must be at least 20 feet long and 8 feet high- it encompasses a whole wall in the bride’s getting ready room. It’s a beautiful sunny space with this view into the past on one wall and a row of windows with a view of the present on the other. A nice juxtaposition.

The architectural and artistic details throughout have a very elegant and classic feel.

Of course, this being the Harvard Club, there are a few special Harvard only touches.

The wedding coordinator Tania is really fabulous; she will take care of everything for a bride and groom. She has loads of experience in the hospitality industry and she loves weddings. Another great mix!
