A generous tent seating up to 200 guests, ample alfresco spaces, and full-service poolside bar add to the pleasure that is inherent in celebrating at Ferncroft. Distinguishing itself as the only ���zero food waste��� wedding venue in Massachusetts, Ferncroft employs a unique fermentation process to divert four tons of biodegradable refuse to an on-site garden, which, in turn, supplies the chef with fresh seasonal produce. Advantageously located near routes 1 and 95, the club gallantly points to a nearby hotel as an option for large party lodgings. Valued for its exemplary service, fine fare, and creative endeavors, Ferncroft Country Club is perfectly appointed for both ���porch��� weddings and more traditional festivities. No two weddings are ever alike, but at Ferncroft all are equally sensational. For more information, call (978) 739-4040 or go to ���My son���s reception at Ferncroft CC was outstanding.

We never had to worry about logistics, which eliminated stress for me so I could enjoy the celebration. The food was excellent, I am very happy with how the event went��� the setup was perfect, the service was great, and the food was wonderful!��� -Leah I., Patron For couples who enjoy the classical and the stately, Glen Magna Farms captures both. The perfect union of colonial revival form and the Golden Age of American gardens combine to exemplify historic North Shore living. s e c t i o n The Mansion at Glen Magna enjoys a long Peabody-Endicott family history dating back to 1812. Important to all who dwelled at the 11-acre estate were the gardens, and they remain an integral part of the property today. Formal elements like the reconstructed gazebo, wisteria-draped pergola, formidable veranda, and beloved heirloom rose garden lend a time-honored elegance to the site. Statuaries, fountains, rolling lawns, and bloom-vibrant vistas turn the estate into a horticultural wonderland. The mansion accommodates 50-125 guests inside, though events over 125 and up to 200 require tenting. To plan menus, Glen Magna gives couples a list of trusted caterers. For the unification of families and making of eternal memories, there���s but one choice: the historic treasure that is Glen Magna Farms. For more information, call (978) 774-9165 or go to ���Glen Magna provided the optimal venue for the type of wedding we imagined: understated and casually elegant with a true New England flavor. The mansion itself is in pristine condition and its historical significance is not only beautifully preserved but accessible for use and available for all to enjoy.��� -Maria Freedberg, Mother of the Bride If resplendent Old World spirit is what���s desired, The Golf Club at Turner Hill promises just that. Built in 1903, this Elizabethan-style mansion, modeled after Christ Church in England, has charmed wedding parties for decades. A European-inspired wonderment, Turner Hill���s Grand Mansion houses hand-molded plaster ceilings, wall friezes, rich oak hardwood floors, and hand-carved paneling, doors, and staircases, in addition to a 15th century hooded Italian fireplace.
