Wedding Locations And Reception Venues
Reunite with friends & family in a relaxed, country atmosphere for a memorable weekend wedding ceremony & celebration, just 30 miles outside of wedding venues in Boston. Friendly Crossways is wonderfully suited for the couple looking for a beautiful natural setting with plenty of space for family members to reunite and for guests to meet, mingle and take the time to really enjoy your unique wedding ceremony and celebration. You can reserve exclusive use of our 25-acre property for up to 48 hours for a flat fee. This gives you access to the grounds with lots of options for unique, romantic outdoor wedding settings. These include a wooded glade with natural stone steps surrounded by towering trees, on a lovely green lawn, bordered by traditional New England stone walls and perennial flower beds, or under a flaming orange maple tree in the fall. Other amenities are a fire-pit, and four acres of open lawn bordered by woods and corn fields, suitable for outdoor games such as croquet. You also get accommodations in our renovated 100-year old barn and farmhouse for up to 40 people in charming bedrooms decorated with hand stenciled walls and handmade quilts. You have the ability to use the dining hall and kitchen for non-reception meals, including rehearsal dinners and post-wedding brunch. Or take advantage of our on-site catering for as many as 150 reception guests. Our chef uses local produce as much as possible?frequently from her own organic gardens?to produce delicious, beautifully presented omnivore, vegetarian and/or vegan appetizers and meals. You can be as laid-back or as formal as you wish at Friendly Crossways, designing your once-in-a-lifetime event to incorporate your personal style and traditions. Your host and hostess, Keith and Mary Turner, understand that flexibility and harmony are critical to successful event coordination and we look forward to hosting your special event.

Outdoor Wedding Venue
We have a variety of outdoor wedding ceremony spaces: under a maple tree in the fall, in front of century old New England stone walls, in a natural ampitheater created by a receding glacier, and in front of, or on top of, a giant boulder in a glade with our rustic barn in the background.

Even if it rains on your outdoor wedding day (considered a sign of good fortune, btw), you can still capture the joy of the wedding party indoors.
