This New England state holds a pivotal place in American history. Not only was it one of America’s 13 original colonies, but it also is home to the Boston Tea Party, Paul Revere, the Mayflower and other icons of U.S. history.
It is this rich and varied past that brings countless visitors to Massachusetts. The landmarks of its colonial history can be found across the state, including the House of Seven Gables, the George Washington Statue in Boston, The Mount in Lenox, and Boston’s Old State House, just to name a few.
As you can see, couples with a love of history need look no further - Massachusetts’ landmarks make a magnificent addition to your wedding, both as part of the ceremony, and to occupy your guests afterwards.
Don’t assume that Massachusetts has only got its history to offer. It’s nicknamed The Bay State for a reason.
This state is also renowned for its breathtaking natural scenery and quaint little villages. Nature-lovers can immerse themselves in world-renowned wonders like the Freedom Trail, Martha’s Vineyard, Cape Cod, Harvard Square (one of the famous Harvard University’s most iconic areas) and the Minute Man National Historical Park.
Or, if you really want to get stuck into the great outdoors, popular activities for newlyweds include whale watching, or a trip to the Alan E. Rich Environmental Park.
Massachusetts is absolutely resplendent with both natural and historical beauty. There is nowhere else in the world where you can experience sites quite like these. As a result, it makes a wonderful choice of wedding destination for a couple who want to achieve complete elegance, with a ceremony that is timelessly beautiful.
