The College Club of Boston is the perfect venue for a small, intimate wedding. Remy does a fantastic job at coordinating all the details, giving lots of choices but always making it easy to decide. The venue is particularly good for the couple that needs to do long-distance planning and is not able to be on-site until close to the wedding. It is both elegant and romantic, and Remy ensures that that all the details are taken care of. I highly recommend the College Club of Boston to anyone wanting an intimate, urban, wedding venue.

We had an absolutely lovely lesbian wedding at the College Club of Boston. Remy, the College Club's executive chef and event planner went the extra mile and made the whole experience smooth. We were planning our wedding from overseas, and Remy was always communicative and had time to answer our questions, even months before our wedding date. She kept on top of details that we hadn't even thought of, and went out of her way to make our wedding perfect. The catering was a show-stopper, and even our foodie friends were impressed with the quality of the food. We had a couple of vegetarians and vegans at our reception, and they were served with great care and attentiveness, and their main dishes were comparable to what the omnivores were eating.

The venue itself is colorful inside, and easily fit our group of 40 guests. It's in a convenient, easy-to-access location near Arlington station and the Public Garden, and it was great that our guests didn't have to travel between the ceremony and the reception. We stayed in the Club's Boston University room for two nights. Because the house is historical, all the rooms are much bigger you'd find at an ordinary hotel.

All in all, we had a fabulous experience at the College Club of Boston. They were very welcoming and made us feel very comfortable. Remy is great, and we'd highly recommend the College Club of Boston to anybody looking for ceremony and reception venue that also provides its own catering and accommodation.

The College Club is one of the best-kept secrets in Boston as far as wedding venues go. If you are having a smaller event, the setting is gorgeous, centrally located, and extremely affordable. The food that Jesse made was DELICIOUS, but his skills extended far beyond the kitchen. We were extremely appreciative of his advice and expertise all throughout the planning process in regards to everything from the flow of the evening to the flowers, pianist, cake etc. Jesse's years of experience were invaluable and gave us the peace of mind that things would go off without a hitch on our wedding day- and they did! The Club itself is lovely- you almost feel as if you are in an old family home. Our 75 person wedding seemed to be a perfect size for the space, although we had stations as opposed to a sit-down meal, and a wedding of our size (larger for the venue) would have been too big for served courses. The station style worked well. We appreciated the flexibility in planning the menu. There weren't fixed menus to choose from- we were able to customize our menu based upon our preferences. Be advised that the venue doesn't have a liquor license- it's beer and wine only. All in all, we had a WONDERFUL wedding and we attribute a lot of that to the beautiful setting of The College Club and Jesse- he truly has a gift for weddings!

We had such a wonderful wedding at the College Club of Boston! The event space was gorgeous, the food was delicious, the staff was friendly, but what sold us on the place was Jesse. He was super helpful, quick to respond to emails and calls and put me at ease through the whole planning process. If your event isn't too big (max capacity is 110, I believe) and you're okay with a bar that only serves beer and wine, definitely check this place out.

I recently had my wedding take place at the College Club and it was extraordinary.

The wedding took place during a particularly difficult time, due to the Boston Marathon bombings and the subsequent manhunt that shut down the city the day before the wedding... however, Jesse stayed in contact with me every step of the way and we were able to figure things out. He was even able to coordinate with my other vendors to ensure that everything would run smoothly.

During the wedding, the food was excellant, the venue was beautiful, and everything was perfect. Jesse and the staff were friendly, helpful, and overall amazing.

While I don't plan to ever need another wedding, I would definately come back here if I could! 5 stars!

The College Club is a fabulous place for a wedding reception. It's a great location, a block from the Public Garden (where we had our ceremony), and we found it a wonderfully comfortable, charming, and elegant (not to mention surprisingly affordable) setting for our 83-guest celebration. Our guests raved about the food, which was provided by the College Club's chef and event coordinator, Jesse W, who's a virtuoso wedding planner and total sweetheart. He helped us every step along the way, offering sage advice and patiently helping us figure out how to create the kind of celebration we wanted. I can't speak highly enough about Jesse, and I'd urge anyone planning a wedding in the Boston area to check out what the College Club has to offer.

The College Club of Boston was the perfect venue for our wedding! The room where we held the ceremony couldn't be prettier and was the perfect size for our small ceremony. Jesse was very willing to set it up exactly how we wanted, though he really helped guide many of the decisions we had to make. He was super flexible when it came to scheduling, and you really can't beat the value!! We also stayed in the rooms at the bed&breakfast and highly recommend those as well. Tony, the pianist recommended by Jesse, was great, and really helped bring the whole thing together nicely. I would also add that Jesse is great at helping the ceremony run very smoothly. He's clearly done many weddings and knows exactly what works and what doesn't. Overall we couldn't be happier and highly recommend the College Club of Boston as a wedding venue.
