About The Saphire Estate Wedding Venue

164 Massapoag Avenue

Sharon, MA

Roberta and Gerald Saphire purchased Daub’s Highland Manor in 1977 and renamed it the Saphire Manor and Inn. For over 40 years, the Saphire family has been pursuing their passion for creating once-in-a-lifetime events for their clients. It accommodates vacationers, tourists, and celebrities who visit during summer. 

In 2006, the Saphire’s son Jonathan and his wife Amiee took over ownership. They launched it as Saphire Estate, investing in a huge remodel that still retained the property’s historic charm. Saphire Estate is known across the South Shore as the perfect New England venue, featuring lakefront property, landscaped grounds, and a beautiful ballroom.

For over 40 years, the Saphire family has hosted couples and their wedding guests with spectacular events. The family owns three venues: Saphire Estate, The Villa, and Avenir. Moreover, each of these venues serves as a gorgeous backdrop for the wedding of a lifetime!
