The couple, or bride and bridesmaids, arrive at The Captain’s House, the property’s residence, to get ready in two designated rooms, up to two hours before the start of the event, when guests arrive.
Upon arrival, guests gather at our Hilltop Pavilion for a welcome refreshments.
There’s enough time for some formal photos, shot anywhere on the property (though a photographer is not included in this offer).
Ceremony follows at the Pine Grove, or, as a rain alternative, at the roofed hill top pavilion, or on the top floor of our carriage barn. There are, of course, no rules: have the wonderful, meaningful ceremony that fits your styles and personalities.
After the ceremony, drinks and hors d’oeuvres are served at the barn, for 1 ½ hours, by bartender(s) and server(s). Toasts, cocktails, a First Dance, it’s all possible. We’ll arrange music to your liking.
The Roxbury Barn supplies venue coordination for the event; an ordained officiant (though you are of course free to bring your own wedding person); a 4-seater cart with driver; a simple yet pretty wedding bouquet; and music, flowers and decor in the barn.
Your four-hour event can be scheduled anytime between 2pm and 7pm
Setup, coordination, chairs, tables, decor and lighting, flowers and wedding bouquet, speaker system and music, staff, officiant, beautiful restrooms and prep rooms, 4-seater cart with driver, drinks and hors d’oeuvres, glasses, linens, and plates, are all included.
Add an extra hour to your event and extend the cocktail & hors d’oeuvres reception at the carriage barn from 1 ½ to 2 ½ hours), at $1,100 + $10 per person in the party.
Additional à la carte food items, such as a Yakatori station, slider station, or raw bar station, are available upon request. This way, a consecutive dinner elsewhere, after the event, would no longer be a requirement. See our downloadable brochure for all the details.
Minimum party size is 21 persons, maximum party size for a Afternoon Celebration is 80 persons, including the couple, and any children.
The Roxbury Barn & Estate only books one event per day, allowing couples to choose a 4-hour maximum window of time for their Afternoon Celebration, with an earliest starting time of 2pm and latest end time at 7pm. The couple, or the bride and bridesmaids are welcome to get ready at the Estate’s residency two hours before the event starts and guests arrive.
In order to reserve the grounds and barn for your Afternoon Celebration, we require that couples sign a rental agreement and pay a non-refundable deposit of $3000. We accept checks only. The remaining event fee (the event fee minus the first payment of $3000) for your afternoon wedding will be due one month before the event.
Our Afternoon Celebration package is specifically designed to offer couples a compact, hassle-free experience at an all-inclusive low rate, and so typical full day event options, such as decorating and rehearsal time, a sit down dinner, food tastings, a bonfire or luminaries, are not available for an Afternoon Celebration.
All rates are subject to change without notice.

Unlike full day weekend weddings, an Afternoon Celebration can usually be booked until closer to the wedding date. For availability, please contact us.
