Located in Marblehead, MA, Heather Gardens is a gorgeous colonial home built back in 1768 by the wealthiest merchant in Massachusetts at that time. Many of the decorative elements have been preserved, including historic furnishings from 18th century Boston, Salem & Marblehead.

For your wedding, host your ceremony under your own custom built archway in the sundial gardens, explicitly laid out to match the mansion's overhead belvedere. Later, transition into a cocktail hour surrounded by the on-site herb garden, birch trees, hemlocks, and a blooming tulip tree. End the evening under your outdoor tented reception outlined by natural green shrubbery and manicured gardens.

The gardens are directly maintained by the Marblehead Garden Club, a volunteer group established in 1936; not only are they beautiful, but are historically accurate, making this a rare find within the Massachusetts' North Shore.
