When it comes to wedding venues, Boston couples have no shortage of options. Whether on the hunt for charming and rustic, sophisticated and urban or over-the-top everything, there's a place for that.  Our newest site obsession is a Boston institution that only recently has become more involved in the wedding game.

The Museum of Fine Arts defies categorization. It is at once timeless and contemporary, impressively grand yet somehow unpretentious. With ceremony site options that range from elegant to edgy and a reception hall the epitome of a blank canvas, a wedding at the MFA is endlessly open for interpretation.

While not for the slight-of-budget, this gem isn't necessarily as extravagant as one might think --- using the existing  furniture, flatware and tableware cuts rental dollars significantly and the stunning art and architecture provide not only built-in decor but also built-in entertainment. During the event guests have the incredible opportunity to wander through the stunning exhibits and for some of them, even do so with a drink in hand . 


Harmony: Saltbox Kitchen + Tribe

The one thing we love as much as good design is good food.  We have been lucky enough to partner with Chef Ben Elliott and the team at Saltbox Kitchen on many beautiful weddings and events over the years.  Any time Saltbox is involved, we know the food will be locally-sourced, beautifully prepared and artfully presented.  For every event, Tribe creates a unique table design that reflects the aesthetic and personality of the client, in this case the couple.  One of our favorite examples of when table design, menu choices and food presentation achieved perfect harmony was Henny & Chessin's wedding in Westport, MA.  Tribe created a relaxed, seaside experience both in the two cocktail hours and under the sailcloth tent during the reception.  Playing with shades of gray and neutrals, stripes and solids and varying textures we created a rich but neutral foundation for the bright, seasonal cuisine from Saltbox.  The food was served family style on whitewashed lazy susans and long boards atop our custom linen runners -- all hand crafted in the Tribe Studio.
