There is no doubt that Moraine Farm is one of my absolute favorite Boston north shore wedding venues. The space has a calming element that is polished, sophisticated, yet down-to-earth.
It is set on 175 acres of land, mostly conservation forest. The lawns are a beautiful space for an outdoor setting. The interior of the stone estate has a lovely space for the bride to get ready, as well as small rooms and a patio for guests to wander in and out.
Moraine Farm’s permanent wedding tent is one of the finest I’ve seen. Also, I know that they’ve upgraded the floors in 2015. It looks amazing. :)
