There are no words to describe the experience we had here! Ann, Connie, and Matt are so incredible to work with. They made sure we were well taken care of at all times. My favorite part of this whole experience was the feeling like I was the most important bride they've ever worked with. I know I'm not but they made me feel like I was the only bride they were dealing with that month. The week of our wedding, they happened to change the carpet and paint in the ballroom. It was done in 3 days and it looks absolutely incredible. I loved being the only bride on the property! They do not give out shots and they've very particular about things they do and do not allow. As long as you understand their reasoning, you will absolutely not be disappointed with going with them! They make sure that you are more than taken care of and they check with you throughout the night. They left us the tray of hors d'oeuvres that were left over when cocktail hour was over and we got to pick at them as the night went on. We couldn't have asked for a better experience or a better venue to have our reception! We did not get married on the property but the setting is beautiful for a wedding as well!"

"Beautiful!! We just had our wedding here on 10/17/14 and it was amazing! The grounds are beautiful and their entire team is extremely helpful and kind. I highly recommend this venue to anyone. All of our family and friends were in awe of how beautiful and picturesque the ground are. We even encountered 2 deer in the background during our rehearsal. It's a must see!"

"Beautiful Venue - I knew from the moment I saw Independence Harbor that i wanted my wedding there. The staff there have been there for years and know everything there is to know about planning a wedding. They are very organized and make sure everything runs smoothly. My wedding went off without a hitch (not that anyone saw because they quickly fixed little glitches) and the food and service is excellent. Everyone has been raving about your wedding and i couldn't be happier!"

"Easy Peasy - I was married at Independence Harbor on October 10, 2013. The entire process from start to finish was perfect. Any time I had a question, Connie or Anne would reply to my email within a matter of hours. They are very organized, which I appreciate. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous. We got married on a Thursday so there was no rental fee, and the prices for the meals were the lowest I had seen anywhere. The food is fantastic. Everyone raved about it. The day-of coordinators, Matt and Martha, were both very helpful and kept things moving so I didn't have to worry about a thing. The one negative I have is that we could only get there a half hour before the wedding, so no pics beforehand. But it ended up being fine because we got some great pics at my sister's house. I would definitely recommend this place. They are true professionals."

"Independence Harbor was the perfect setting for our wedding reception. From the very beginning, the entire staff at Independence Harbor was more than helpful. IH coordinates your event and walks you through the process in a thoughtful and thorough manner. IH's communication is exceptional! From the months leading up to your event, to the week and days before the big day, IH is always available and in constant communication you. Our reception was amazing! Truly, the best day of our lives. We didn't have to worry or stress about a single thing. Maddie and Matt had literally every detail under control. Attention to detail is IH's specialty. For our pictures, during cocktail hour, Maddie was sure to bring us and the wedding party appetizers and beverages as needed. And the food...... I can't tell you how happy I was with every single course that was served. The appetizers were phenomenal, but nothing compares to the Surf n' Turf option that we selected for our guests. My guests are still commenting on how delicious the meal was. The most impressive part of the evening was at the end, when Maddie and Matt made sure that everything we brought on site, was prepared and packed for us to leave. We did not have to run around and collect our items, it was done for us. This allowed us more time to spend with our family and guests. There is no better place to have your wedding reception period. I have been thankful everyday since our wedding that I listened to my sister and my best friend, who had both attended weddings at Independence Harbor and insisted that I make an appointment to see the venue."

"Independence Harbor in Assonet, MA was fantastic! I held my wedding ceremony and had my reception here. During the year long planning process Anne and Connie were consistently there to answer all of my questions, and I had a lot of them! They were always willing to accommodate their schedule so that I could meet with them face to face on any given week. Now thats impressive knowing how many clients and how many weddings they have there each week. Upon my wedding day I was of course nervous that everything would be set up the way I had envisioned. But I no need to worry, everything was PERFECT, I had not one complaint. The wedding managers were amazing! They helped us with our rehearsal and then they were there for any little thing we needed on our big day. We had such an amazing time at our wedding and I would not hesitate to recommend this venue to anyone! It was wonderful!
Absolutely amazing and beautiful venue!"
