A Beautiful and Non Traditional Venue

Guests traveled from near and far to celebrate the couple’s special wedding day. They opted for a traditional, American wedding ceremony at a non-traditional venue – The Stevens Estate in Andover, MA. This historic venue was built in the late 1800’s and is one of the last, grandest Victorian estates left in North America. The expansive gardens acted as the perfect backdrop for their beautiful ceremony.
