"Open Space Venues" is a concept we use for the most unique, rare and fully customizable nontraditional venues.
Mayflower Venues allows you to discover and transform these open spaces into a venue that can reflect your values and unique story. While at first it may sound daunting to plan an open space wedding, with Mayflower's online tools your planning will feel easier than ever! Just take it from one of our planner partners, 42 North.

Just outside the Berkshires and only 2.5 hours from both NYC and Boston rests one of the oldest horse farms in the northeast. BridleWood Dressage is a slice of heaven with lush pastures, mountain views and a perfectly flat lawn for an outdoor tented reception.
Start by renting the original farmhouse for the weekend for up to 10 of your closest friends or family members. Then sneak away for photos against the antique silos and then transition to an outdoor tented ceremony or an indoor rustic celebration inside their beautiful barn.

Boorn Brook Farm is surrounded by enchanting stone walls, breathtaking views and a pristinely renovated barn. Just 5 minutes outside of Vermont's Manchester Village you'll find this hidden gem sitting inside 53 acres of enchanting forests.
The estate has been restored to its original splendor, surrounded by open meadows, old apple orchards and forest trails. Couples can choose between a larger event outdoors, or a more intimate gathering inside the barn's great room.
