My husband and I had our wedding reception at Salero on 8/15/15 and it truly was the perfect day. Dawn made sure every last little thing went off without a hitch and it absolutely did. The food, atmosphere, and overall experience of everything exceeded all of our expectations. Mike the D.J rocked it and had our guests on the dance floor ALL night. He even jumped on the dance floor with us! We are still receiving compliments weeks later about how amazing the food was and what an incredible time everybody had. If you are looking for a venue where you know you will be taken care of and your guests will have an amazing time, then look no further! Salero is the place for you. This was by far the best wedding we've ever been to and it makes it so special that it was our own. A million thank you's again!!
We had our wedding on 8/1/15 and just got back from our honeymoon. Dawn and her team, including the DJ, were incredible. They were very accommodating and went out of their way to make all of our guests happy. Dawn took care of everything and all the details to make sure there were no issues during the reception. Dawn and her team also decorated the beach beautifully! We couldn't be happier with this venue, Dawn and the staff that took care of our special day.
P.S. The food was incredible! Everyone was very pleased.
The hours leading up to the wedding my photographers got delayed by traffic, bridal party got soaked while out getting pictures, there was a torrential downpour leading up to our outdoor beachfront ceremony delaying the start, & then… a rainbow & the most perfect day ever. Thru all of it, never one issue, concern or doubt about our decision to go with Dawn & her team. Dawn made sure our wedding was exactly what we wanted, even if that meant a team down on the beach drying off each chair.
I’ve looked through all of the reviews seeing if I could touch on something anyone had missed, but really everyone has it down. Dawn has done this ‘once or twice’ before! We selected Salero (& made 2/3 of our payments) without setting foot in the venue or meeting Dawn in-person. That’s how confident we were in our decision based off of reviews just like the one I hope I’m offering up in Salero’s praise, & a few conversations with Dawn. I said throughout my entire planning process that people surely hated how easy the entire process was for us; I largely have Dawn to thank for that. I didn’t work with a designated wedding coordinator, but had no need to with the way Dawn has things set up. To have the ceremony setup, the sound system, the catering, the bar, the DJ, all through one highly skilled & passionate person is a godsend. And with the team behind Dawn as top-notch as she is, I can’t imagine having done anything differently. Dawn & her team repeatedly made that my husband & I were carefree & having fun. At one point in the evening Dawn checked on how I was doing, I started with saying how everyone was having a blast & she was quick to say, she just cared about how much fun I was having… & she is genuinely being sincere, she made it her mission to ensure we had the best wedding ever. Our wedding guests were echoing the thoughts in our head as all night they raved to us about the staff, the view, the food, the music, you name it. You truly can’t go wrong choosing Salero!
My wedding day was absolutely amazing! Everything went so smoothly. Dawn and the rest of the staff at Salero are beyond amazing! They were all so kind and helpful during our reception, they made sure to keep our drinks flowing (which was great) and ensured that we had a wonderful time. Dawn was always available via email or phone to answer any questions we had regarding our day. We also had a beach ceremony, with backup plan ready in case for bad weather (thankfully it was a beautiful day). Dawn is truly a wonderful person and was so easy going and laid back which made me feel even more comfortable, and allowed me to have such a fantastic time at our wedding! I have a brother who is wheel chair bound, and she made sure that the layout of the room accommodated him to be able to have just as much fun as us and had full access to the dining area and dance floor.
DJ Mike was also just as wonderful. He made sure to keep the music flowing and had all the guests on their feet dancing. I hardly sat down along with many other guests. All songs requested were played. Mike is a very nice gentlemen!
The food at Salero is delicious, our guests are still talking about the wonderful food that was served! Everything was cooked to perfection! Truly one of the best meals I have ever had!
My only complaint is that the night went by way too fast! My husband and I had the time of our lives, and it is a day we will always remember. I would highly recommend anyone to Salero!
Not sure why I am coming up as a Private User; but my name is Kristen Schaefer, my husband is Daniel Vigliotti and we were married on June 21, 2015
Outstanding location with a wonderful view of the beach and dolphins. Everyone very friendly and professional. The food was great and everyone had a wonderful time.
My husband and I had our wedding reception here on 6/19/15. I have nothing but good things to say about this venue. Our ceremony ran longer than expected. We were suppose to be in the Salero by 6:30 for cocktail hour, but we didn't get inside until 7. I was worried this was going to put us really behind on everything. I don't know how Dawn did it, but she got us caught up on time. She made sure everything ran smoothly, and if there was an issue she took care out it without my husband's and my knowledge. Everything about this venue was great. The view was absolutely beautiful, the food was amazing, and the DJ was awesome too. I am so pleased we decided to have our reception here. I couldn't be happier. I have been married for over three months now, and I still have people tell me how great our wedding was. I would definitely recommend Salero to anyone.
I cannot begin to thank Dawn for everything she did for our wedding. I know she has many weddings throughout the year but she always made me feel like I was her #1 priority. Every single time I contacted her, she was available or immediately called me back. I didn't live in the area so I had to arrange the wedding remotely. She helped every step of the way. She suggested bakers, florists, officiants, makeup artists, anything and everything we needed for the big day. She was friendly and very easy to work with. The wedding was the best day of our lives and we have Dawn to thank for that. Every guest that came raved about the exceptional food, the chocolate fountain, the music, the drinks, the ambience, the wait staff... the list can go on and on. We had the platinum package. We had 5 hors d'oeuvres (shrimp cocktail, shepard's pie, scallops wrapped in bacon, crab cakes, and lamb chops), the mixed green salad, choice of entrée (filet, prosciutto wrapped chicken, and pacific halibut) and mixed vegetables. Everything was delicious!! After dinner, Dawn made the rest of the evening go off without a hitch. As I said before, we had the time of our lives... I wish I could do it all over again. And if I could, I would do it at Salero!
If I could give Dawn and this venue a 10 I would! I don't even know where to start! Dawn was wonderful, calm, flexible and professional throughout everything. She and her crew adjusted to photos that took longer than expected and toasts that were a little long but absolutely beautiful. She told us what to do and what to expect. Service with a smile. Of course the view can not be beat!!!
The food was exceptional. The only problem was that it was hard to decide on what to serve our guests as appetizers and entrees because everything tasted amazing. I would strongly suggest the shrimp stuffed with crab. Even the salad was fantastic.
DJ Mike had everyone up and dancing and Dawn kept reminding us that this was "our" night and not to worry about anything else. Our guests have to told us that this was the best wedding they have ever been to.
There are not enough kind words to say. If you can have your wedding or event here, consider yourself VERY lucky indeed and don't worry about anything. Dawn will make sure it's perfect!
My husband and I got married on 5/30/2015 and we used Dawn and the Salero. From day 1 she was helpful, attentive and always available for questions. There was absolutely no stress on our part because she was on top of everything. The wedding and the reception exceeded all of our expectations. The ceremony, the food, the DJ and the whole staff were excellent. I highly recommend Salero. Dawn and her staff truly go above and beyond. I will recommend them before anyone else! Thanks again guys! -Allison Jaskewich
We had our wedding at Salero on 4/4/15, and amazing does not even begin to describe it. It was everything I had envisioned and more! Dawn and her staff took care of every need I had (most of the time before I even realized I needed it)! DJ MIke kept everyone dancing and all night long, and really made everything just flow smoothly! The food was delicious!! Every person I have talked to since returning home from my honeymoon have all said the same thing, that mine was the best wedding they had ever attended, and just raved about the food. The view is simply spectacular as well, we got married during the blood moon, and the red moon rising over the ocean was breath taking!
My daughter was married on 04/4/15 and her reception was held at the Salero on the top floor of the Henlopen hotel.
We could have not asked for a better wedding! The venue and experienced staff were all amazing. Mike, the DJ, was awesome as well.
The food...amazing! People are still talking about how great the appetizers, meals, chocolate fountain was.
I cannot say enough good things about Dawn, Chef David and the Salero.
We couldn't ask for anything more and the price for such a 5 star wedding, food and view can't be beat! Thank you Salero!
My husband and I got married at the Salero on November 8, 2014. We had our ceremony on the dance floor followed by the reception and it was AMAZING!
You can't beat the view and the venue is already so nicely decorated that we didn't need to add a lot of decorations to it, just centerpieces and a few added touches here and there. We live two hours away in Pennsylvania and found that this was a great place for a destination wedding. Dawn takes care of so many aspects and lets you know when she needs something from you, so you don't have to constantly worry what needs to be done. We were able to focus on other things such as dresses, favors, invites, etc.
Dawn and her serving staff and Chef David and his kitchen staff did an outstanding job with our sit down dinner. The food came out flawlessly and quickly and was delicious. Over half the guests had the crab cakes and were raving about them. We had the oysters as one of our appetizers which were brought in from Chincoteague, Virginia fresh (highly recommended)! They have a wide variety of food for everybody, no matter what you taste is.
The in-house DJ Mike was fantastic! We had some rare requests and Mike was able to play all of them for us. He had great energy and kept the party going all night. The dance floor was crowded the whole reception!
Lastly, on the Salero website, Dawn has recommended vendors for things such as photographer, cakes, flowers, etc which was great for us since we don't live in the area. We used her suggestions for photographer (Rob Korb Photography), cake (Carolina Sugar Fairy) and flowers (Bayberry) and they were exceptional as well!
All in all, Dawn, David and their staff gave us an incredible wedding day. We had guests from all over the country, ages 6 months to 90 years old and EVERYONE had an incredible time! We couldn't ask for anything more and the price for such a 5 star wedding, food and view can't be beat! Thank you Salero!

My husband, Stephen, & I had an absolutely amazing wedding at the Salero Ocean Front Venue on October 19th.
Dawn (the owner of Salero) went above & beyond all of our expectations! She was always available every step of the way, to answer any and all questions we had prior to our wedding. She especially helped to keep me calm during all of the stress/anxiety which comes along with the wedding planning! I couldn't have asked for a better business person to work with, & she truly treats you and makes you feel like family! Love her so much & couldn't be happier with the way everything turned out!
The food...was...OUT OF THIS WORLD! Her husband, the head chef at Salero, did a phenomenal job with the food. All of our guests were, and still are, raving about the food. The menu offers so many selections (and everything tasted soooooo good) which made it so difficult to make our final choices, but we were completely satisfied with everything. No complaints whatsoever!
DJ Mike, Salero's own resident DJ, was spectacular! He played the music on the beach during our ceremony, as well as all of the music during our reception. He definitely knew how to keep the crowd dancing, & everyone had such an enjoyable evening with such awesome music!
Finally, the wait staff & bartenders at Salero were sooooooo great! They were all so pleasant & always made sure that Stephen & myself, as well as all of our guests, were being taken care of throughout the evening!
All in all, I would recommend the Salero venue to EVERYONE times 1,000,000%!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I could not say enough good things about Salero! Our beach ceremony and reception were flawless thanks to Dawn and her staff. The DJ was awesome, food was amazing and staff was top notch.
My husband and I were married on 10/5/2014 in Rehoboth and we had our reception at the Salero- People are STILL saying what a great wedding it was! Dawn is amazing to work with, she has a way of making you feel at ease while being tentative, organized and very professional! She is honest, extremely helpful and truly does go above and beyond to help you with any issues or questions you may have! The food was amazing, what I wouldn't do to have a meal like that again! DJ Mike not only did our ceremony music which was so convenient, but he kept the party going all night! There were people on the dance floor all night long and he did a great job Mc'ing as well! Dawn and her entire staff were on point throughout the night and I can honestly say you are in the best of hands; I didn’t have one care or worry all night! For the high quality of service, the breathtaking views and all that comes with the wedding packages, simply put: it is the BEST! Thank you Dawn and your entire staff for ensuring our wedding was all we hoped it would be and much more!
My daughter was married on the beach in front of the Henlopen Hotel in Rehoboth Beach, DE on 10/4/14 and her reception was held at the Salero on the top floor of the hotel. To say that everything was perfect would be an understatement. Dawn Horton made sure that every detail was handled with as little stress to me as possible, answering every question that I emailed her...and I had quite a few...promptly and cheerfully. Everything was excellent...food, ambience, DJ. I cannot say enough good things about Dawn, Chef David and the Salero.
