September and October in New England are simply golden! They are the fall months most New Englanders look forward to all year long for activities from leaf peeping to tailgating. It should be no surprise that it is one of the most popular times of year for weddings, especially during late September and October.
The natural beauty of changing leaves, mild temperatures, and the sense of relaxation that comes after a busy summer make fall a perfect season for weddings. New England, including Boston, boasts radiant color during this time of year and offers many spectacular venues where couples can take advantage of all that mother nature has to offer.
As experienced Boston wedding planners and Massachusetts wedding planners, we’ve worked with many couples to plan their perfect fall weddings. So grab an apple and don that cable knit sweater while we share some of our favorite fall wedding venues with you!

The Newbury Boston
Location: One Newbury Street, Boston, MA 02116
We can’t talk about fall wedding venues in Boston without highlighting the city’s newest and possibly most sought-after wedding venue location. Located where the Taj once stood, The Newbury Boston opened in the summer of 2021. This beautiful new hotel has experienced an extensive renovation, updated with modern luxuries while still embracing Boston’s history, tradition, and culture.
Perhaps the most attractive feature of hosting a wedding at The Newbury Boston is the view of the public gardens and Boston Commons. When the golden fall sunlight begins to set on an afternoon wedding, overlooking the gardens and commons, it’s hard to imagine a more magical wedding backdrop. The Newbury Boston should not be overlooked as a top fall wedding venue within the city proper.

Amherst is renowned for its universities and beautiful landscapes, but the town is also an ideal destination for fall weddings.
The Red Barn has quintessential New England charm that is almost palpable, especially during the autumn months. The venue offers rustic post-and-beam construction with breathtaking views of the Pioneer Valley Mountains. The property has multiple large decks that provide additional space for an outdoor cocktail hour or meal with a picturesque background that is extraordinary
