A Timeless, Candlelit Wedding | Alden Castle

Jane and Geoff knew they wanted to say "I Do" at a venue that had enough space for both the ceremony and reception in Boston's backyard, without sacrificing the classic and elegant details they both desired. Alden Castle was the perfect match. 

At a Glance

  • Classic & timeless approach
  • Modern Club ceremony | Vintage Ballroom reception
  • Focus on natural lighting and candles

Five years before Jane and Geoff tied the knot, Jane attended her sister’s modern and minimalist wedding at the State Room. She was so in love with the experience and her sister’s praises of the Longwood team that she knew she'd be a Longwood bride, but with a style that is more classic and timeless. Enter Alden Castle: the Longwood venue in Brookline that exudes an everlasting elegance from the moment you enter. 

The Big Little Things

Ceremony & Reception

Jane and Geoff knew that Boston traffic, especially on a weekend, wasn't something they wanted their guests to have to factor in on their wedding day. So the fact that Alden Castle could host both the wedding ceremony and the reception was key. And even though the day was all under one roof, the Modern Club ceremony looked so distinctly different from the Vintage Ballroom reception, the couple and guests were treated to two very different events within the celebration.

Light Touches

Alden Castle's unique architecture and location allow for lighting to enhance different moments in time. During the ceremony in the intimate Modern Club, diffused lighting from the overcast day filtered through the giant windows and caught in the gossamer fabric of Jane’s veil and her organza gown, creating a soft halo of light around her and Geoff as they said their vows. During cocktails and dinner in the Vintage Ballroom, the lighting changed again, this time, the ballroom was cast in dim golden light from the chandeliers and burning candles placed throughout the room.
