Outdoor tent wedding on CMU grounds
We had an absolutely wonderful reception at 500 Shaftesbury. The staff were generous with their time, answering all our questions and hosting many of our guests as well. Even though the wedding was outside, we accessed the indoors for bathrooms as well as beautiful photo opps!Sent on 01/09/2021
