Independence Harbor Testimonials

Since it’s inception in 1976, Independence Harbor has evolved into one of the most sought after destinations for wedding receptions and garden wedding ceremonies in Southern New England, But don't just take our word for it!  Below are testimonials from Wedding Wire, The Knot, Social Media Channels and personal messages sent to us directly!




"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!"

"Amazing!!! My husband and I have been talking about how smoothly everything went. The food was amazing, the room looked exactly as I had pictured it and the tiniest details were taken care of, down to the arrangement of the cranberry wreath centerpieces. Our coordinator, Matt, was awesome - easygoing, funny, and yet managed to keep everything running seamlessly on the day of the wedding. If there's a prettier or more reasonably priced venue in the greater Boston area, I haven't seen it."

"Anne and Connie were absolutely wonderful. When we first saw Independence Harbor there was about 4 feet of snow on the ground. They both did an amazing job showing us photo albums of each month to allow us to see the typical flowers and foliage during that time of year. We couldn't have been happier with our decision. The grounds were beautiful and the entire wedding was stress free. With both my husband and I being very busy it was refreshing to have a lot of the leg work of tables, chairs, table cloths, dishes, etc.. handled by Connie and Anne. I would highly recommend Independence Harbor."

"Amazing! - Beautiful, professional, delicious are just some of the words you could use to describe Independence Harbor. I wanted a place where I could hold my ceremony and reception, I got so much more when I booked Independence Harbor. The garden is gorgeous for a ceremony, the guests loved the grounds. The staff were beyond accommodating, I was so frazzled the day of and they were there, making sure everything went wonderfully! The reception and dining room was so amazing, not to mention the food! Words can't describe how good! Everyone loved it!"

"They have it all! - Our wedding was on a Saturday night in August. The ceremony was perfect and the grounds were beautiful. The staff was extremely attentive, professional and courteous. Our guests raved about their meals, especially the clam chowder, and I.H. was very accommodating for our vegetarian and gluten free guests. We have since heard from many of our guests that it was the best wedding to which they had ever been. It sounds too good to be true, but it is not. We will remember that perfect day for the rest of our lives. - Melanie & Sean 8-10-13"

"The venue is gorgeous and tons of places to take pictures. The staff was amazing and went above and beyond to make our wedding day even more special. The setup was amazing and Martha was in charge of our set up and she even repackaged our items in the original packaging when taking them down. The chef made "edible arrangements" and added them to the tables and we didn't even ask for it. It really made the sundae bar look even better!! They also include a macaroni and cheese buffet when doing the all inclusive package and our guests are still talking about how great that was!! The pricing is reasonable and they have a great all inclusive deal for weddings that are "off season" (April and November). The staff was very professional and friendly. I would recommend this venue to anyone."

"Couldn't have made a better choice! - We were married on October 18, 2013. We chose this time of year because the trees and flowers are so colorful. We decided to let nature speak for itself. Independence Harbor is beautiful and the grounds are immaculate which is great for pictures. They also offer a fireside ceremony option which is perfect for a fall evening wedding. While it is a bit daunting when figuring out the budget, Independence Harbor is worth the money. They are thorough with the details and they tell you exactly what is and isn't included. They also run off season deals which is well worth taking advantage of. All the staff Anne, Connie, Brian and Martha are all easygoing and are there to help you every step of the way. Martha and Brian handle the rehearsal and cater to your every need at the wedding. It was wonderful to have a spare hand at every moment. It couldn't have been any easier or any nicer."
