The Crane Estate is a wedding venue in Ipswich, MA. This stunning seaside property comprises over 2,100 and affords spectacular views of Crane Beach, the Crane Wildlife Refuge, and the surrounding salt marshes. The Great House, perched high above Crane Beach, is a triumph of the Country Place Era and provides the perfect setting for an extraordinary wedding celebration. The Crane Estate's Great House is available for exclusive use. Additional venue options are also available. Steep Hill Beach is ideal for couples looking to add a bit of sun, sand, and surf to their wedding ceremony. The two private lawns overlooking the ocean provide plenty of space to mingle, play volleyball and other games, and enjoy an informal clambake or barbecue reception. The Vegetable Garden, which features stone towers, wrought-iron gates, and a wisteria-draped lattice, is another stunning ceremony site. The Italian-style Barn, located at the base of Castle Hill, is a charming reception venue that pairs nicely with both Steep Hill Beach and the Vegetable Garden. It has a lovely post and beam frame, terra-cotta walls, and a green tiled roof and can accommodate parties of up to 140 people. Fireside Catering is the venue's exclusive catering partner.
