Known as Boston’s first skyscraper, the Marriott Custom House was initially built in 1847 and its iconic clock tower was built in 1913. Its design was inspired by a Greek temple and incorporates Doric columns as well as a dome roof. From the 1850 Boston Almanac: Custom House Tower Boston “Situated at the head of the dock between Long and Central Wharves, fronts east on the dock, west on India Street, and is in the form of a Greek Cross, [with] the opposite sides and ends being alike. It is 140 feet long north and south, 75 feet wide at the ends, and 95 feet through the centre.” I’ve only had the pleasure to come to this wedding venue once, but it’ll be a wedding elopement that I’ll never forget mainly because it’s the only wedding that has been granted permission there!
This is part one of an incredible wedding story! Dave and Kasey met at a dog park in Washington DC
