We are wedding photographers ourselves so we've been to many different venues and wanted something unique, special, and untraditional for our own wedding. Warehouse XI was the perfect space. We had about 100 people there and it the size of the space just right. It really is a... Read More blank canvas and you can do whatever you choose to it. If you wanted to hire a planner and designer to bring your vision for the space to life, it would come out beautifully. My husband and I decided to take a more DIY approach. With the help of our friends and family we decorated the entire space the night before and I definitely recommend getting the space the day before if you're DIYing it. We created our craft beer bar, layered the dessert table with many cakes, and piled cheeses upon cheeses for our charcuterie table. We had biergarten tables and benches for our guests to sit at and had the amazing Sensational Paella cater. It was incredible. We had planned on our ceremony being at the park next door but had to move it inside when the weather decided to downpour on us day. We are actually really happy that it rained all day because bringing the ceremony inside made it much more intimate. It was beautiful and everything was perfect! Peggy, the owner of Warehouse XI, is wonderful. Being wedding photographers ourselves, we've worked with many different venue owners and Peggy is the most down to earth, fun, and helpful person to work with. During our planning she answered every question, helped solve every problem we came across, and offered ideas from previous weddings there. On the day of she was there working the entire time to make sure everything ran smoothly. We couldn't have pulled off all of our crazy ideas without her! It really was the perfect place for us and our wedding, I only wish we could have a party like that every weekend!

Warehouse XI provides a great blank slate for couples who want a lot of freedom in decorating their venue. We really wanted to DIY a lot of our wedding, so this was a great choice for us - one of the rare spaces in the area that gives couples this much freedom. With this freedom... Read More of course comes a lot of work on the couple’s part. All that is provided is the space, so you will need to provide chair/table/linen rentals, decorations, etc., and will need to find a solution to the lack of a kitchen (which we resolved by working with a food truck for catering and precooling beverages at home the day before. While a traditional caterer can bring in kitchen equipment, there isn’t much space in the venue unless you want to rent out a side room for an additional charge or sacrifice the back of the main space). One of the challenges we encountered while planning our wedding was how difficult it was to communicate with WXI. Getting a response to an email with simple logistical or venue questions was often difficult. This was especially a problem during the week before the wedding when we asked how to enter the venue and other questions about logistics, and didn’t receive a response. After we decided to communicate directly with the owner, Peggy, via cell phone, though, we had much more success - she was very helpful in the days leading up to our wedding. During the wedding weekend, Peggy was ridiculously helpful and did way more than she had to, for setup, cleanup, making sure things ran smoothly. When you book the place, she tells you she's usually there to help but can't make guarantees, so we really didn't know what to expect. Because there wasn’t another event the day before our wedding, we were able to start setting up early (which was tremendously helpful!). We also didn’t need to clean up until their next event (which was very nice considering the day after our event was Labor Day and the rentals company would charge $250 extra for pickup that day!). Peggy’s brother even showed up and helped us rehang our string lights in a better way. Peggy was there from the morning when we were setting up until after we left around midnight; working almost the entire time. The price and location are also very appealing (although we would recommend booking an extra day, at reduced cost, for setup; we thought it wasn't critical but I think we're pretty lucky no one booked the day before so we were able to get in early), and I'm not sure if there is another space like it nearby to pick from if that's what someone is looking for. It’s perfect for a smaller wedding (although they can fit more than a hundred people if needed, we found the space to be perfect for our 65-person wedding, with round tables and plenty of space for the buffet, bar, DJ, and a dance floor). It’s also only a 5-minute walk to Prospect Hill Park, where we had our ceremony. Despite a few communication problems earlier on, we were able to have a wonderful wedding there, thanks to how versatile the space is, and more importantly, how tremendously helpful Peggy was the day-of. Would definitely recommend!

I know many wedding venues get 5-star ratings because of the after-glow of what is supposed to be one of the best days of your life, but everyone from Warehouse XI went above and beyond. We planned our destination wedding in 5 weeks. When I called to see their potential... Read More availability for our Leap day wedding, Faith wasn't reluctant to help our bizarre wedding scheme in the least. She recommended a fantastic wedding planner, Cristen from Cristen & Co., and wasted no time making sure that we would have the most fantastic wedding possible. Peggy, the owner, made me feel like I was coming home. She has a warmth about her that is not easily replicated. My MIL wasn't feeling well after the wedding and Peggy stepped in to make sure she was absolutely taken care of. Warehouse XI seems to be the gathering spot for many up-and-coming local creative entrepreneurs in Boston. The venue itself is almost completely customizable to what you would like for your wedding. The white walls are fresh and elegant with a modern edge. This space is used for more than just weddings so it doesn't feel contrived. I personally loved that the warehouse seemed to be out of the way in an enclave of it's own, like a secret hidden the city. I will say that parking might be an issue, but I am confident that the staff at Warehouse XI could handle that in a cinch. Another plus is that they are located near Forklift catering, which you honestly cannot go wrong with. It's amazing feeling when the vendors at your wedding know and truly seem to enjoy working together. We went to Warehouse XI for a venue and left with a wedding team that felt like family.
