Weddings, Large & Small & By the Sea
Here on the north shore of Boston, a venue has to really go the extra mile in order to be thought of as exceptional. It’s not easy to stand out among a (literal) sea of seaside cities and towns, each boasting their own waterfront locales. But when you stumble upon something truly special, you just know it. At the Beauport Hotel in Gloucester, you get it all: the history and the hustle and bustle of Gloucester, a beautiful facility, world class dining, and an ocean view that has to be seen in order to be appreciated. Given all of this, it’s not hard to understand why so many couples have Beauport at the top of their wedding day wish list.
The Beauport is a smaller boutique hotel with 94 guest rooms. Their on-site amenities include an amazing rooftop pool and bar as well as award winning dining. Beauport’s distinctly boutique feel sets it apart from the pack; it’s large enough that guests get to enjoy a luxurious getaway, while still being intimate enough to ensure everyone feels like a VIP. The hotel provides shuttle service for overnight wedding guests as well as complimentary valet parking.
Couples that select Beauport for their big day get to enjoy event planning services provided by a professional event manager who works side by side with them, assisting with everything from ceremony logistics to menu and décor suggestions. Beauport has also carefully built a preferred vendors list comprised of businesses they trust, removing what might otherwise be a stressful process for any couple trying to select so many vendors at once. Beauport couples can also look forward to a complimentary honeymoon suite on the night of their wedding.
Whether you are planning a small or large wedding, Beauport has something for you. The hotel can accommodate events for parties of 150 or more. They can also scale down their capabilities for small and medium sized affairs. Quite frankly it doesn’t take much more than a single site visit to have brides envisioning themselves walking down the aisle on the hotel’s Oceanside terrace, or picture their guests enjoying cocktail hour as the sun sets over the water.
While the Oceanside Terrace is no doubt a big draw, the Beauport retains all of its beauty and elegance even when the weather does not cooperate. Couples can select from event spaces including the Oceanside Ballroom (featuring floor to ceiling windows) or a smaller Pavilion Room that overlooks the ocean. Wedding guests are given exclusive access to their Event Deck for the entire wedding.
We’ve all heard the term “wedding food” and Beauport is on a mission to banish that term with their top-notch cuisine. Past couples have remarked that their wedding dinner more closely resembled a meal at a five-star restaurant than anything else! Their scratch kitchen allows for flexibility, fully allowing couples to design a menu that reflects them and their event.
While warm weather affairs are no doubt beautiful, the hotel is also a stunning location in cooler weather. The city is alive with the New England charm of a seaside town in fall, throughout the holiday season, and beyond. There’s something special and cozy about being by the ocean on a chilly winter’s day, especially when you can enjoy the view while curled up by the fire with a cocktail in hand. Beyond weddings, the hotel is home to the area’s largest meeting and event spaces, making it an ideal selection for conferences and other gatherings.
No matter the type of event that brings you to Beauport, you will surely be glad to have found yourself there.
