Everyone wants their special day to be one-of-a-kind, but few venues can actually deliver a completely unique wedding. That’s where The Commons 1854 comes in.

Located in the charming town of Topsfield on the North Shore, The Commons 1854 is true to its namesake; the five-star boutique venue was originally built in 1854 as the town’s meetinghouse and is a registered historic landmark. After a careful restoration process to add modern amenities while preserving its 19th century glory, The Commons has decades of experience in nuptial bliss.

Divided into three equally gorgeous spaces, you can choose between or flow naturally from the outdoor garden, ballroom, and grand foyer for both your ceremony and reception. The intimate garden terrace features lush grass, a brick walkway, maple trees, a flowing water feature, and a mahogany platform for exchanging vows. The picturesque surroundings are enhanced by a hillside coy pond encircled with flowers.

Greet your guests in the grand foyer, a polished, elegant space complete with high ceilings, moulded pillars, and porcelain tile. The newly renovated cocktail space is classy and cozy with two fireplaces, Swarovski crystal chandeliers, and a Neo-classical Rotunda.

Be swept off your feet in the ballroom with more fireplaces and Swarovski chandeliers, maple flooring, towering columns, and grand windows. You can also oversee your unforgettable evening from the grand staircase and second floor balcony or lounge in the mezzanine as you’re served by the dining professionals at The Commons 1854.

The culinary team is led by Executive Chef Frank Martino and his award-winning menu is both creative and custom to suit every couple’s palate. Hand-pick your menu of mouthwatering hors d’oeuvres and main dishes, delectable desserts, and craft beverages.

You’ll see right away why The Commons 1854 has won ten consecutive awards for The Knot’s Best of Weddings. When you book your big day, you’re booking alone; the venue only hosts one wedding per day to keep your event singularly spectacular.
