When Courtney and I planned our wedding our number one objective was that everyone at the wedding have a great time and enjoy themselves. Too often, weddings can just be viewed as another obligation where you fly in, stay at the local chain hotel, eat some subpar food, and hit the road a few hundred bucks shorter. We think that a Cape Ann wedding is the perfect way to prevent this atrocity.
There was a fantastic photo shoot performed by photographer Julianne Lesinski of Scarlet Roots that can give you a good feel for the property. The stunning wedding was actually featured in an article in Boston Magazine that you can view here: Boston Magazine Article.
The Beauport Hotel is a fantastic Gloucester MA wedding venue. It is perfectly situated in the heart of Gloucester providing friends, family and guests access to the town and all of the fantastic restaurants, shops and beaches in the area.
The main event space is over 10,000 square feet and can accommodate a wedding of up to 230 people. Plus, a big benefit of the Beauport is that it offers 94 rooms so that many of the guests can even stay on site. Insider tip: be sure to coordinate room blocks as early as possible to ensure availability.
The Beauport is a great site for both the ceremony and the wedding. Ceremonies will usually take place on the back deck of the facility providing a beautiful Gloucester harbor backdrop and a great places for guests to enjoy cocktails and appetizers.
Photographer Catherine Threlkeld took some great photos of a Summer wedding at the Beauport and her photos give you a good feel for the local flavor of Gloucester and the layout of the hotel. You can view the weddings pictures here: Beauport Wedding Pictures.
In addition to the Beauport hotel, they also own Cruiseport which is a 4,500 sqaure foot luxury ballroom that can accommodate a wedding reception of up to 300 people. Take a closer look at Cruiseport pictures.
The Beauport, and Cruiseport alike, are beautiful facilities in a fantastic location, with very skilled and experienced staff. For these reasons we definitely recommend Beauport as one of the top Gloucester MA wedding venues.
The facility can accommodate anything from a smaller wedding to a larger wedding with 200 guests and getting some photos on the docks can make for some fantastic coastal fodder. You can take a peek at some event photos on Wedding Spot which give you a feel for the facility.
We love the Cape Ann Marina and enjoy the local events, like the Bluefin Blowout, which they host and do a fantastic job managing all of the moving pieces. For these reasons Cape Ann Marina makes our list as one of the top wedding venues in Gloucester, Massachusetts.
Want to say I do on a pristine golf course that overlooks the Atlantic Ocean Sounds fantastic right The Bass Rocks Golf Club is a fabulous Gloucester wedding venue that can accommodate up to 200 guests and will provide a top-notch experience for you and your guests.
Even better than the course and views is the fact that the staff at Bass Rocks are extremely professional and on point. We have heard horror stories at some other wedding venues, but this one has always come back positive.
In addition to beautiful exterior views, the modern 14,000 square foot clubhouse has a fantastic banquet hall and facility that are perfect to accommodate your wedding. The food is provided by their caterers GoodMan Hospitality which has been professionally catering for over 30 years.
If you are looking for a top-notch professional facility that will work with you every step of the way to ensure your wedding goes perfectly you should definitely consider Bass Rocks Golf Club for your wedding.

This Gloucester wedding was so much fun. Long tables all the way down a dock right in Gloucester harbor. Fishing boats, seagulls, and the smell of the sea. Laughter and lots of clinking glasses toasting a lovely couple. Documented by Boston wedding photographer Siri Jones at Maritime Gloucester with wedding planning by Masterfully Planned, catering by Season to Taste, and DJ-ing by Beat Train Productions.
Jessica and Mike had the most perfect elegant summer wedding. With the ceremony at Lynch Park in the Rose Garden, and dinner and dancing at the Cruiseport in Gloucester, their guests got a taste of some of the most picturesque spots on the North Shore!
The pedestals and urns I chose for the altar pieces nicely fit in with the architecture that acts as the backdrop to the ceremony. We used a mix of whites, blush and greens to complement the color palette of this wedding. Hydrangea are always a nice addition to pieces like this because they are so large and textured, they help everything to feel a bit bountiful. Also, they just scream summer!
All of the details were planed perfectly by Mollie of Mollie Marrocco Events. She was so helpful and loved every minute of the floral design and event styling process!! It is great to work with a wedding planner that loves flowers as much as I do!!
Alvah Reida Photography perfectly captured all the details at this beautiful wedding, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do! Be sure to also watch their video, captured by one of our favorites, McElroy Weddings.
