The Ceremony

Ceremonies at Wellesley can be booked  in Houghton Chapel, the Multifaith Center, and the Arboretum. These venues are available for ceremony use only by members of the Wellesley College community: faculty, staff, students, alumnae and their immediate relatives. Reservations and arrangements for all ceremonies can be made directly through the Office of Religious and Spiritual Life. To do so, please contact Amy O’Toole, Coordinator for the Houghton Chapel and Multifaith Center by phone: 781-283-2615 or e-mail:

Booking can take place between mid-June to mid-August, the second weekend of October (the College's Fall Break), and during select weekends in January. College events in any given year may preclude some of these dates available for weddings. All bookings should be made by directly by calling Amy O'Toole.

Please note that the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston ordinarily permits only graduates of Wellesley to be married at the College. Such graduates must satisfy the Archdiocesan regulation which requires attendance at one of its approved marriage preparation programs.

The Reception  

Space for on-campus receptions is only available at the Wellesley College Club. Reservations for space at the Wellesley College Club must be made directly with them by calling 781-283-2700.

Please note that reserving the Chapel, Multifaith Center, or Arboretum DOES NOT also reserve the Wellesley College Club. For example, if you have reserved the Chapel, you must contact the Wellesley College Club to then reserve space at the Club.
