    Beautiful ocean front wedding venue w/ amazing staff

    We had our wedding here on October 13th, 2018. It was beautiful. The Addy Sea staff and Debbie Wayland made everything so easy. Not only did we get an absolutely beautiful place to have our wedding, as had our loved ones staying with us at the Addy Sea (and breakfast!!) but our experience planning it was unmatched. The staff was not only extremely helpful and professional, but they were so kind. The vendors they include seamlessly made everything happen. Special shoutout to the florist Debbie Bussard of Visual Presentations, her work was stunning. The food and menu options were wonderful- we worked one on one with the talented chef, and received many compliments on the food. As a bride, I was endlessly stressed out, but I was amazed at how wonderfully things came together. While I got ready in the beautiful parlor with my bridesmaids and sipped champagne, the wonderful staff and vendors set up my dream wedding. We could not have asked for a more beautiful ocean front setting for our wedding, or more helpful people to make it happen.

    Quality of Service: I originally had Maggie as my coordinator but unfortunately due to health issues the torch was passed to Sherene and Tiffany. I was so pleased with how much they both did for me! On their dime they invited my Groom and I to stay at Addy Sea for a night just to meet in person. Very organized and friendly! Rehearsal Dinner night they both were present and set my mind at ease with helping me create a timeline. They also allowed us to have dinner delivered to us. It was like the bed and breakfast was our house for the weekend....that happens to have an oceanfront view/right on the beach! Wedding day Sherene made me feel at ease. She had all decor set up, communicated well with the other vendors (HUGE Stress-relief there!) All I had to worry about was getting ready (which was very memorable and fun with my bridal party-we took up the whole third floor with the best views as the groomsmen remained on the 2nd floor.) The morning after the wedding, Sherene was present already putting away my personal decor for me. She packed it up all ready for me to take to my vehicle.

    Responsiveness-Very attentive to my emails/phone calls. Never had to wait over a day to hear back from Sherene!

    Professionalism-Quality of Service speaks for itself!

    Value-Addy Sea was worth EVERY penny! My wedding was in May (rates go up mid summer.) Unfortunately the rainy weather meant I had to rent a back up tent. Do not let the possibility of rainy weather scare you from booking this venue! The back up tent is beautiful and had the capabilities to pull back the transparent siding to allow you to have the full beach experience. At night the siding was great to block the wind and cool air!

    Flexibility-I really wanted a dance floor instead of dancing on the grass. The large wrap around porch made for a great dance floor with enough room for my 80 guests and the DJ. So much fun!!

    If you want a unique/beach front wedding, look No Further!
