BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Public Library, one of the city’s most historic institutions, is giving four lucky couples the chance to exchange marriage vows for free inside its venerable halls.

The library’s wedding giveaway announced this week is a celebration of the McKim Building’s 125th anniversary.

The wedding package at the Central Library in Copley Square includes a pre-ceremony breakfast, bouquets and boutonnieres, music, photography, an overnight stay at the Westin Copley Place, and ceremonies officiated by a Justice of the Peace.

The ceremonies for up to 10 guests will be held Feb. 2 while the library is closed to the public.


The online-only registration period for the randomly selected wedding packages has started and ends Nov. 15.

The library, founded in 1848, is one of the city’s most sought-after wedding locations.
