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!




"I got married at Independence Harbor in Assonet on 3/16/07. My coordinators there (Matt and Maddie) were exceptional and I have nothing but good memories about my experience here. I got married in the worst snowstorm of the 2006-2007 season (basically the ONLY snowstorm we had that season!) and Matt and Maddie did a great job. I was completely calm the whole evening and I owe everything to them! The food came out hot and delicious. The guests were raving about the food! The ballroom was absolutely gorgeous and the fireplace was roaring. The chocolate fountain was a HUGE hit and the guest were raving about that as well. Other than starting a little late (because of the snow and the fact that I was late arriving) everything went off without a hitch. The best part of IH is that they are affordable. I had a gorgeous wedding for a fraction of the price I would have paid anywhere else in the Boston area. If you are considering IH you would not be disappointed with their quality of service."

"Having our ceremony and reception at Independence Harbor was a true Fairy Tale and dream come true! We had our wedding in September 2017 -- the garden grounds were so stunning that we didn't even use any ceremony flowers. The staff is so incredibly helpful and wonderful throughout the entire planning process all the way through the wedding day. I had questions leading up to the big day and Connie set my mind at ease. The food is absolutely delicious -- our macaroni and cheese bar had a longer line than our open bar during cocktail hour! You can tell that putting on weddings and functions is what they do -- there was all the behind the scene work by there staff that made the day so seamless that I didn't have to question anything -- everyone just knew what to do and how to F L O W it all. The inside of the venue is beautiful and already partially decorated, very tastefully. Our decorations blended in and everything flowed together. To top it off, we even had 2 deer at our ceremony! I truly felt like Snow White -- talk about a Fairy Tale come true!! I highly recommend Independence Harbor. As a bride, they made me feel heard and respected, which I found amazing, as some vendors looked at us simply as a check. All those simple touches truly add up, I'm so so happy we used Independence Harbor for our wedding day!"

"We could not be any happier with Independence Harbor. My son and daughter-in-law's wedding was perfect. The venue is beautiful. Everyone is raving about the food. The buffet with the Prime Rib, Lobster Newburg, Chicken Marsala, and Roast Pork Tenderloin was absolutely delicious. Their staff was so friendly and helpful. Also John Cristoferi, the DJ, who was on their preferred vendor list was wonderful."

"What made our wedding day on 8/9/2013 a wonderful experience was the expertise of Martha and Matt. Our wedding was schedule to be an outdoor wedding; however, it rained nonstop the day before and continued to rain on our wedding day. Because of the rain, the ceremony was moved indoors. Our wedding turned out just as beautifully as if the initial plan was for an indoor wedding. The reception hall was transformed to accommodate both the ceremony and reception with no hindrances. Our guess were impressed at the level of professionalism by the staff who worked on our wedding day. We highly recommend Independence Harbor to anyone who is looking for a venue that will pull through no matter the circumstance or challenge that arise. We must also note that we live in New York City but we chose Independence Harbor, which is four hours away for our venue. The long distance did not pose any problems."

"I was extremely pleased with Independence Harbor. The staff was amazing - very professional and detail oriented, particularly with respect to service. I even received thank you notes from guests who noticed attention to service details! They answered all my questions and were kind, friendly and assuring. They know their business. I went with their suggestions and was pleased with how smoothly the night progressed. Their winter wedding package is reasonable. The food is excellent. I had the mac & cheese bar and ice cream sundae bar. My guests loved them and again, called to comment on them. They offer Sunday brunch to try their food. The setting is beautiful in all seasons. I loved my IH wedding. "
