Sara + Tom’s Traditional & Bright Wedding

Garage B hosted several weddings in 2022 that quickly have made “hall of fame status” in our books. These couples brought so much creativity and life to our blank-slate wedding venue, making each wedding incredibly unique and custom-made for their tastes and interests. 

When planning an event in a space like Garage B, there are so many directions to take the look and feel of a wedding. Some couples can walk in and picture what they’ll do with the space right away, others need some visual inspiration to help make decisions. 

Over the next few weeks, we are going to share some of the most unique weddings and how they made the most of our blank-slate wedding venue.

Next up, Sara and Tom! This couple’s late October wedding was just simply gorgeous and a wonderful example of how to hold a relatively traditional wedding in Garage B’s blank-slate space. 

Sara and Tom chose to host both their wedding and reception inside the Garage. As guests arrived, they were greeted with a cocktail set-up outside the venue in the adjacent courtyard. Just before the ceremony, the guests were ushered inside and invited to take their seats. 

The ceremony was framed by a beautiful and bright floral arch and the aisles were lined with candles, all setting the stage for a warm and intimate service filled with family and friends. Afterward, the attendees filtered back outside for a cocktail hour while the bride and groom took photos around the Charles River Speedway. The guests were entertained by the Vine Shakers, who set up a three-piece band outside during the cocktail hour. The beer was flowing, thanks to the Notch mobile tap truck, which parked next to the party-goers in the lower courtyard. 

Meanwhile, inside – the caterers from La Bonne Maison quickly flipped the space beautifully from ceremony to reception, setting the stage for a night of speeches, great food, and plenty of dancing. 

This was such a beautiful and elegant wedding – we absolutely loved hosting Sara and Tom at Garage B!

Bubbles & Brews Launch Party

We were thrilled to host the Bubbles & Brews launch party at Garage B earlier this fall. Alice Speck, founder of the Boston outpost of the brand, worked with wedding industry vendors to create an incredible evening that beautifully showcased everyone involved. The goal? Introduce the lucky invitees to the most adorable Piaggo Ape and Vespa Bar around. We think it was a huge success. 

Bubbles & Brews pulled in some of their favorite vendors for this very fun event. We are sharing them here, to help you plan your next event!

Lovin Spoonfuls Ultimate Tailgate Party Fundraiser

We were so excited to host Lovin’ Spoonfuls’ Ultimate Tailgate Party this fall. The non-profit organization welcomed over 250 guests to Garage B and raised over $300,000 to support their food rescue mission. Lovin’ Spoonfuls invited 15 of the Boston area’s best chefs to bring along tailgate-inspired bites and beverages for their biggest fundraiser of the year.

How’d they do it?

For the first hour, the organizers set up a VIP cocktail hour in the Upper Courtyard of the Charles River Speedway, inviting donors to partake in a special program while thanking them for their generosity. After that, everyone headed down to the Lower Courtyard, where guests could sample the special food and drinks.

We loved the creativity and the cause! (You too? You can support them here.)
