A Downtown Boston Venue Highlight: The InterContinental - Boston, MA

Located in the heart of historic Downtown Boston, the InterContinental is a waterfront venue located directly on the Boston Harbor, overlooking downtown Boston, the Seaport District of Boston, and the Boston Tea Party. We have had the pleasure of working at this beautiful venue a numerous amount of times over the last few years and truly enjoy working in this space.

Featuring multiple ballrooms and event spaces, the InterContinental is the perfect venue for large scale weddings, being able to fit large guest counts of over 500+ people! In both 2021 and 2023, we flowered two epic New Year's Eve wedding celebrations at the InterContinental, featuring guest counts of 250 to 300 people within the Rose Kennedy Ballroom, where we incorporated both round and rectangular tables that comfortably fit all guests and allowed for additional items like lounge areas, large dance floors, live oyster shucking stations, and a glitter station!

One of the major benefits that we love about this historic Boston hotel is that the venue has the capacity to hold both a ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all in one location, with the option of each portion being in a separate location - which allows vendors an easy set up and allows guests to enjoy all aspects of your wedding without having to travel to and from various ceremony and reception spaces.

Featured to the right is the view of the sweetheart table from one of our NYE's weddings at the InterContinental, where we were able to repurpose the circular ceremony arbor, that we adorned with a large and impactful floral installation, and move this arbor to the reception ballroom to accent the sweetheart table! The wonderful team at the InterContinental were able to use the freight elevator to move this arbor up from the Abigail Adams Ballroom, where the ceremony was held, to the Rose Kennedy Ballroom, where the wedding reception was being celebrated!

We also love that there are endless opportunities for photographic moments in and around the venue. Featuring floor to ceiling windows in both the ballrooms, we love that there is so much natural lighting to highlight everything perfectly (getting pictures of our floral arrangements in natural lighting is always a dream for us!).

Not only are there plenty of photo opportunities within the InterContinental itself, the venue sits in the heart of downtown Boston on the Boston Harbor, which is within walking distance to Faneuil Hall, the Seaport District, TD Garden, Fan Pier Park, and Boston Commons, allowing for plenty of scenic backdrops for photography and also plenty of activities for guests to explore!

Having a venue in a large city can sometimes be difficult when it comes to transportation and delivery, but this is another area that exceeds our expectations as a vendor. As a wedding florist, delivery is a crucial step in the process of setting up for an event and can sometimes be difficult given the location. With a private loading dock and entrance, the InterContinental makes delivering quick, simple and so easy! The loading dock allows for large vehicles and delivery vans a direct access to the freight elevators which makes our jobs so easy! Our experience with the staff and security at the venue was nothing but the best, allowing ample time for set up and breakdown, music to our ears!

Aside from weddings, the InterContinental can also accommodate corporate events and functions. Featuring multiple meeting and function rooms, these spaces are perfect for corporate meetings and events.

Working along side of one of our favorite Boston event planners, 8 Stratton, we created some beautiful jewel toned arrangements to be featured at a large corporate event in the Fall of 2023, which used the Rose Kennedy Ballroom and also multiple function rooms within the hotel for the various portions of the multi-day corporate outing.

The InterContinental in downtown Boston, MA is one of our favorite wedding and large event locations in New England! Are you dreaming of having your epic waterfront wedding here? Find out more about how we can elevate this space with florals for your event at the InterContinental!
