1. Bourne Farm 

Bourne Farm is one of my favorite Cape Cod wedding venues. You can really make it into whatever your heart desires! From bring in food trucks, antique furniture, golf carts, yard games this beautiful outdoor tented wedding venue in Falmouth, MA is your blank canvas. To create the wedding day of your dreams and make it reflect your personality as a couple!

3. New Seabury’s Country Club & The Popponesset Inn

These two Cape Cod wedding venues are part of the New Seabury wedding venue group. Their wedding team is the best and will ensure your day runs flawlessly!

The Popponesset Inn is perfect if you’re looking for that laid-back feel. This wedding venue is a gorgeous, white-tented venue located right on a private beach. So no worries about beachgoers on your mid-summer wedding day.

New Seabury’s Country Club is the other beautiful wedding venue in the group, The club is a more formal, elegant wedding venue with a stunning ballroom with gold accents. The club has impressive views of the golf course overlooking the water. As a photographer, I love that you don’t need to take a step to get two totally different backdrops! If you look one way, you see the lush greens of the course and just turn around to see Nantucket’s Sound! What is not to love about that!
