    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!

    This is an amazing venue and definitely one of a kind! The architecture and grounds are so beautiful! We had our Ceremony outside on the law and having this magnificent building as our backdrop was simply stunning.
