Hello fellow Boston brides and grooms! I am in the process of booking a venue for my May 2017 wedding (early I know, what can I say I am a planner!) and my fiance and I fell in love with the Larz Anderson Auto museum in Brookline as a reception venue (we will be having the ceremony at our church). I was hoping to get a review from people who recently had their wedding and/or reception there or who will be having a wedding there soon. I feel like the price is pretty good for Boston, considering we have a lot of flexibility, and I got a preliminary quote from the caterer that I think seems reasonable. Our max budget is $30,000. We will have 100 people or a little less and would be doing it inside, so no use for a tent.
Is anyone willing to share their experience with staff, rentals, costs, space etc for Larz Anderson? Did costs run over with having to rent everything? Was the staff helpful or do you think hiring a wedding coordinator would be good? How did you set up the space? I am trying to do as much research as possible before I book!
