Featured Post: Prepare to Wed: Historic Boston Venues

Photo by Bruce L. Snell Photography

Today I am very excited to announce that I have a featured post over on the Prepare to Wed Blog on choosing a venue in the City of Boston. This post is the first in a series of Boston Posts and focuses on my favorite venue type: historical locations.

The photo above is one of my favorite historical venues: the Commander's Mansion in Watertown, MA. Now owned by the City of Watertown, the Mansion was commissioned and then built shortly after the Civil War as the living quarters for the Commanding Officers stationed at the Arsenal site (along the Charles River). The Commanding Officer  was later charged with disloyalty and mismanagement of the arsenal site partially due to extravagant spending on the building during a time of war. The Mansion remains very much the same as it did in the 1860s and the property and grounds are a picturesque location for an indoor winter wedding or a tented summer affair located a few miles from the city center.
