What to Expect

We will celebrate on Peddocks Island in Boston Harbor with a ceremony and reception to follow.

There will be a charter ferry to and from the island with a pick up at 2:00 from Downtown Boston (Moakley Courthouse) and from Hull (Hull Ferry Terminal) at 3:30.

Like our lives, our wedding will be a largely outdoor event with a ceremony out on the pier, dinner at the park picnic tables, and dancing in the grass. Don't worry, we also have a rain plan.

Where to Stay

Boston is a city of neighborhoods and you have lots of good options for your stay on the harbor. We have put together a map of places to stay here.

  • East Boston is a great neighborhood with a mixture of families and new developments. The airport is in East Boston, so transportation is simple if you won't have a car and there are lots of hotels and airbnbs in the area.
  • Back Bay is known for its historic elegance. Close to lots of sights to see in Boston, it is the farthest from the harbor. Uber to the Moakley Courthouse and grab the ferry.
  • Hull is a casual beach town 45 minute drive from Downtown Boston. There are a few cool houses on airbnb and VRBO, but Hull is a small town so hotels are limited. We have a block with the Nantasket Beach Resort, which is right on the beach and close to our ferry pick up. The ferry ride from Hull is about 5 minutes.
  • If you're interested in a taste of our boat lives, there are several boat hotels in Boston Harbor, including floating houseboats, motoryachts, and overnight stays on a tall ship. If you'd like to charter or bring your own boat there are lots of dock and anchorage options, both in the inner harbor and out near the ceremony in Hull.

Getting to / around Boston

Boston is a remarkably well connected city and there are many ways to get around.

If you are coming by plane, the airport is right in the harbor and connected by train, car and a regularly scheduled ferry, which has stops in Downtown, Hull/ Hingham and the South Shore.

Boston's main train station is South Station, which is centrally located in Downtown. From there, the MBTA (T) and the Commuter Rail can get you to most neighborhoods in 40 min or less.

If you are staying out in Hull or nearby, there is a regular commuter ferry that can bring you to Downtown (museums) or East Boston (airport)

The city is also very walkable and has a robust Bluebike network for those of you who want to explore on human power.
