THE STUDIO ~ housed in a historical brick federal in the heart of downtown Newburyport. The Studio offers a distinctive event experience for your more intimate gatherings. Offering personalized design of your special event, the space is perfect for your next birthday party, dinner, cocktail party or corporate meeting! It's also a unique space for bridal showers, rehearsal dinners, and more! 

Rental of The Studio includes the planning services of our dedicated team, use of our furnishings, and access to the highest quality vendors in the Boston area as part of your event rental package.

We’ve been planning and designing events on the daily for a REALLY long time! Our wedding clients are always asking us to direct them to the best local venues for their Engagement Parties, Bridal Showers, Bridesmaids’ Luncheons and Rehearsal Dinners. We also get so many calls from people looking to host a small party at somewhere other than their own home but with the same “homey” feel.


Every day we are lucky enough to come to work at our amazing spot downtown. Direct sun floods the space with natural light, creating a comfy cozy vibe with all the charm of a historic New England home. One of our most favorite things is getting to hang on the couch with our clients and a glass of champers, while we plan their celebrations.


The Studio Newburyport was born from our desire to share our little oasis with those who are looking for that “home away from home” feel in an event space that’s absolutely perfect for smaller gatherings. What makes it all even more kismic is the fact that our little venue comes with its own in-house design team...literally IN HOUSE!

We just can’t wait to create your next celebration!
