Elm Bank in Wellesley has some of the most exquisite gardens in New England. That’s not really a surprise since the Massachusetts Horticultural Society owns and runs it. Brides and grooms can count on beautiful flower beds beginning in late spring, throughout summer and into fall.
Jen and Sol’s wedding was in September and the garden’s didn’t disappoint! The ceremony was held on the patio of the old mansion. Cocktail hour was in the Children’s garden, a short walk down the road. Guests took another short walk to the reception site. (Elm Bank has a cart available for mobility-challenged guests.)
Jen and Sol chose Handel “Air” and “Bridal Chorus” for the processionals. The recessional was “Alla Hornpipe”. Light classical and old jazz standards were played during cocktail hour.
