Both ballrooms at The Villa are ideal for ceremonies.

Can I get ready on-site?
Every ballroom has its own beautifully appointed and very private bridal suite. There you can get ready in a relaxed setting with your friends and family, enjoy a glass of Champagne, and a bite to eat, take pre-event pictures, or just sit down and relax after your ceremony.
Do you have hotel accommodations close to the venues?
While we do not provide transportation, we can assist in arranging everything from limousines to party buses to help you and your guests go to and from hotels and ceremony locations.
What is an event minimum?
An event minimum is the agreed upon amount you will pay for food and beverage for your event. The minimum amount is based on the demand for a specific date, time, and venue, and will be agreed upon before your reservation is finalized. If you are on a budget, we will be happy to offer a range of options to accommodate you. Should your actual charges be less than your established event minimum, the difference will be billed to you as a room charge.

We do not charge a ballroom fee for the Madera Ballroom, Grand Ballroom, or Avenir.
There is a fee to rent the Tent and Saphire Estate, please call 781-784-2400 for more information.

Yes. We provide all catering in-house. Our menus provide a variety of on-trend options or we can create a custom menu for your event.
Can we sample your food beforehand?
Every season, we sponsor a special “group” tasting event at one of our venues. In addition to specialty linens, face time with our preferred vendors, and floral arrangements, you’ll enjoy dazzling displays of our cuisine and have the opportunity to sample a wide range of appetizers, entrees, desserts, and more.
Of course, if you wish to sample specific dishes, or are requesting specialty cuisine for your menu, we’d be happy to tailor a private tasting session especially for you.
