Wistariahurst Museum is a unique location for wedding ceremonies. In the style of Italian Renaissance and complete with a musician’s gallery, the music room holds up to 100 guests. The cost includes 3 hours for use of the museum, including time for photos. If additional time is requested, it is $100 for each hour. The museum provides seating as well as the set-up of the room. A minimum deposit of fifty percent of the anticipated fee must be paid in advance to hold the date. The balance is due two weeks before the wedding. For Holyoke residents, our indoor ceremonies are $1,200 with proof of residency. For non-residents, the price is $1,500. If you would prefer a picturesque wedding in our gardens, our outdoor ceremonies are $1,000.
Mansion Ceremony and Cocktail Reception
The Music Room is the perfect setting for a ceremony of up to 100 guests followed by a cocktail reception for 2 hours (booking is four hours total). Food and beverage service may take place in the gracious Breakfast and Dining Rooms of the mansion or out in the beautiful gardens. Call or email for base pricing.
Reserve the museum for up to one hour to rehearse prior to the day of your ceremony. This opportunity allows individuals to familiarize themselves with the mansion before the event takes place. Rehearsals also serve as a practice session for any musicians that would like to test acoustics before the day of the ceremony. Call or email for base pricing.

A minimum deposit of fifty percent of the anticipated fee must be paid in advance to hold the date and time. The cost includes up to 1 hour for use of the museum and grounds.
