Events at the Governor's Mansion Complex

Event Options and Setup


The Governor's Mansion Complex holds many options for events. Our newly-restored Wedding Garden can comfortably hold a seated luncheon for 50 guests. For an indoor luncheon, you can use the main and lower levels of the Lace House to accommodate an intimate bridal luncheon or a seated rehearsal dinner. If you need space for a reception of 300 or more, you can use both the main and lower levels as well as the terrace for your guests to mingle. The Mansion Mall can accommodate seated dinners for up to 600 guests.

The gardens are beautiful year round. Confederate jasmine and azaleas are the highlight of spring, while begonias and hydrangea give the gardens a "pop" in the warmth of summer. For a winter party, have your guests experience the wonder of the garden's camellias. Afterward, enjoy a cozy lunch or dinner inside the Lace House. Whatever your event, the Caldwell-Boylston Gardens can bring a unique and exceptional facet to an otherwise typical event.

For a wedding event your guests will never forget, use the Historic Lace House and the Caldwell-Boylston Gardens as your backdrop. For a fall wedding have cocktails in the gardens and a ceremony under the colorful trees on the Mansion Mall with the fountain as your backdrop. Or have your ceremony in the Wedding Garden or under the trellis with a traditional reception following inside the L ace House. Whatever your style or inspiration, the Lace House and Gardens give you options to create the perfect setting for your dream wedding.
