The Great Hall is a grand room on the third level, a boisterous space for your reception. The function room is the star of Mechanics Hall’s offerings, adorned with gilded decoration, coffered ceilings, corinthian pilasters and a balustrade balcony. The open floor plan offers extreme flexibility for seating. Above the stage is 3,504 pipe Hook tracker pipe organ. The stage allows for photo opportunities, as well as great option for a ceremony or band area. Sneak a photo in The Great Hall before your reception begins, you will not regret it!

The simply elegant Washburn Hall is on the second floor. This space is adorned with chandeliers and a wall of tall, arched windows that allow for natural light. There is also a small stage and full service bar in the hall. This space is perfect for a ceremony or a cocktail hour.

The more intimate spaces of Mechanics Hall

On the third level is Boyden Salon a magnificent space for with floor to ceiling windows with a view of the city. Opposite the floor to ceiling glass are walls that were part of the original 1857 brick facade. The space is 1,136 square feet with a unique sloped ceiling.  This is space is perfect for smaller events or used for a catering and bar service area for large Great Hall events.

The Dickens Room is a 812 square foot lounge complete with Victorian decor and artwork. This room overlooks Main St. The Dickens Room is a cozy and elegant space for small events or a quiet room for your bridal party. It is located adjacent to the Great Hall. This room can accommodate cocktail events up to 75.

The Board Room is located on the second level, and is also a quiet place for your bridal party during transition times. This room also has large window with lots of natural light during the day.  This room is 508 square feet and can accommodate cocktail events up to 50.

Other Photography Opportunities

The Washburn Hall and Waldo lobbies both offer beautiful photo locations. The Grand Staircase is a no brainer, perfect for couple portraits and large group photos, alike. I personally think taking a few moments for photos in the Boyden Salon are well worth it with the wall of natural light. This space is unique and can offer fun opportunities at dusk too. Don’t forget about the famous front facade of Mechanics Hall!

Mechanics Hall is grand and unforgettable experience and I hope you consider it in your search for a wedding venue.

We love this venue, it’s listed in Our Favorite Central Mass Wedding Venues.

“Best Photographers in Massachusetts”

“After scouring the internet and talking to our friends about photographers, we made the best decision ever in hiring Audrey and Cody for our wedding. By far, they were the best vendors we worked with and could not be more thrilled with the results.
From the very first instance of communication, we knew we were in good hands. For us, being photographed came with some nervousness and trepidation, but they were both so quick to put as at ease. It was if we knew them forever and we became very fast friends. They are genuinely nice people and so fun to be around.
Throughout the wedding itself, Audrey and Cody were ever-present but never intrusive. They captured every moment we wanted without being in the way and always found ways to go above and beyond. For example, when my mother was being photographed, Audrey noticed that her bouquet was dripping and immediately rushed over so her dress would not be ruined. Throughout the night, flowers began to fall apart from all the dancing and Cody always made sure the boutonnieres were on point and looking great.
Their portal is very user-friendly, and their prints are just gorgeous. Finally, their photo albums are exquisite. The website absolutely does not do them justice. Our books were so beautifully bound and made great gifts for the parents. Overall, we would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Audrey and Cody. They are by far the best photographers in Massachusetts.”

Being your Mechanics Hall wedding photographer gives me an advantage because I know the venue extremely well – I have had the opportunity to photograph here multiple times, including weddings and events. The venue can be extremely technical to light properly for photography, so choosing a photographer who can utilize multiple off-camera flashes, throughout the day, is an absolute must.
