As an affordable alternative to a full day wedding, the Roxbury Barn & Estate offers couples the option of an elegant, incredibly beautiful, but easy-to-manage afternoon & early evening celebration, which is available on select Sundays, Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays, from mid May till mid October.
No stress and no long to-do lists are involved. We’ll coordinate the Afternoon Celebration, and you’ll enjoy some of the best we have to offer, at a really affordable rate!
Minimum party size: 20, maximum party size: 70 persons
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 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, first dance and parent dances, 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 as well); a 4-seater cart with driver to drive anyone anywhere on the property; a simple yet pretty wedding bouquet and boutonnière; and music, flowers and decor in the barn.
Setup, coordination, chairs, tables, decor and lighting, flowers and 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.
Monday or Thursday:
$7,800 base fee + $45 catering & bar fee per person
Sunday, Holiday Mondays & Fridays:
$9,800 base fee + $45 catering & bar fee per person
There’s a 20% service charge on the catering & bar fee, and 8% state sales tax for all included services.
Your event can be scheduled anytime between 3pm and 7pm, with a maximum time span of 4 hours from the moment guests start arriving.
Additional à la carte food items, such as a Yakatori station, slider station, or raw bar station, are available upon request. Extend your cocktail & hors d’oeuvres reception at the carriage barn from 1 ½ to 2 ½ hours, at an additional charge. See our downloadable brochure for all add-on and booking details.
Availability: Unlike full day weekend weddings, an Afternoon Celebration can usually be booked until closer to the wedding date. For availability, please contact us.
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.
