Schedule Your Summer Wedding in Boston

Plan a beautiful outdoor wedding in Boston during the summer.

It seems like everyone has a spring wedding, but you want to be unique. Your dream summer wedding in Boston can come true with a perfect outdoor venue. Nestled right on Boston Harbor, the Tudor Wharf Pier gives you a picturesque view while offering all the amenities a bride and groom could want. From the hotel right beside the tented reception area to the relaxing breezes off the harbor, your wedding couldn't be situated any better than this.

Summer Wedding in Boston
There's a reason why this pier is a popular place in Boston to have an outdoor wedding. Everyone in the wedding party can prepare in the lavish accommodations of our hotel, and there's space to offer guests in the tented area. For some weddings, travel time between two venues alone is enough to make for some stressful situations. However, at this scenic pier, you can have both the ceremony and reception in the same space. Wedding planners find that these accommodations are ideal. You just want to celebrate the happy couple, so our hotel and perfect pier location provide you with a dream combination.

Weddings on Tudor Wharf Pier aren't lined up throughout one day. You'll never see another booked wedding on the pier because it's one party each day. In essence, you take over the entire pier for an occasion you won't forget.

To book your summer wedding today, visit the Residence Inn by Marriott Boston Harbor on Tudor Wharf website. You can fill out a reservation card, allowing our concierge professionals to guide you through the booking process.  Our hotel staff is pleased to help you out every step of the way to make your special day shine.

Boston Harbor Cruises Provide Scenic Tours of the City

Take a cruise around Boston this summer and take in some American history.

Boston's location on the harbor makes boat rides the perfect excuse to explore the landmarks of the city and the surrounding nature. In its decades of existence, Boston Harbor Cruises has created a number of attractions and tours that spotlight the unique flavor of the city. Their historic sightseeing cruises in Boston provide a window into the rich history of one of America's oldest cities. The company's tours give visitors a glimpse of such famed locations as the spot of the Boston Tea Party and the USS Constitution, the oldest commissioned warship in the world. The Charles River and Locks cruises in Boston are almost as much a historic institution as the sights themselves. The hour-and-a-half cruise is filled with stories that span the rich history of the city.

In Boston, the cruise and ferry Boston Harbor Cruises
system is almost as much an institutionalized system of travel as the subways are in New York. The ferries offer a quick and easy way to explore the surrounding Harbor Islands. These national parks not only offer tours and historical context but also provide a wealth of activities just a stone's throw from Boston proper. Swimming, fishing and nature hikes make Boston a top destination for summer adventure. Lighthouse cruises in Boston make a perfect romantic excursion, and the high-speed Codzilla is less a tour and more an amusement park attraction. In 2015, the cruise line will be offering special summer fireworks cruises in Boston.

We would love it if you'd join us at Residence Inn by Marriott Boston Harbor on Tudor Wharf. Our hotel is right across from the USS Constitution, making it the perfect launching point for an historic and interesting USS Constitution cruise.
