The Crane Estate in Ipswich, MA, is a grand Massachusetts wedding location just outside Salem. Brittany and Justin had their guests stay on the waterfront in Salem, where they had access to great restaurants, shopping and tourism. For the wedding, they shuttled everyone 15 miles north to the illustrious Crane Estate. The ceremony was held on the beautiful, green lawn, with the reception inside the estate. Brittany and Justin hired a lighting company to set up colorful lighting outside to illuminate the estate once the sun went down.
Here are our tips for having a Crane Estate wedding:
1. Hire a lighting company to uplight the exterior of the estate, which will elevate this already beautiful building into a work of art.
2. Give your photographer time to do creative portraits of the two of you on the amazing estate grounds. It takes some time to walk the entire estate, but it's well worth it!
3. Have your cocktail hour on the gorgeous veranda off the back of the estate. Your guests will feel like royalty in this elegant wedding location.
