    The best wedding venue in Cape May!!!

    AMAZING!!!! The best wedding venue in Cape May!! We were a "covid couple" and initially booked the beachfront ballroom at Convention Hall back in early 2019 for a 2020 wedding. After 2 reschedules, we finally had our reception this past weekend (June 2022). I hope that no future couple has to go through reschedules and the hassles of covid, but if you do, they will be there with you the whole way. Rachel made everything so easy during the stress of reschedules and she and her team did so much for us. Finally, when the day arrived and we were really having this thing, we couldn't have asked for a better experience. There was zero stress. We chose this venue because it is actually on the beach and the views are absolutely incredible. We had the ceremony on the deck and it was gorgeous. Once inside, our guests could not get over the view of the beach from the ballroom. It's also so spacious and you have tons of freedom with decor and the layout. We had 100 guests but it holds a lot more than that. It was perfect for our large band, photobooth, and food stations - the dance floor was huge (which is exactly what we wanted and we needed it with all of the dancing)!! I cannot recommend Convention Hall and Rachel enough!!!

    Cape May Convention Hall's reply:

    Hi Madison! Thank you SO much for those kind words and thank YOU for allowing me to be apart of your special day, it was absolutely beautiful!! Wishing both you and Keith a lifetime of happiness, come visit me in Cape May soon!!

    The Most Amazing View in NJ!

    Our guests enjoying the sunset on the deck so close to the water was amazing. Our guests can't stop talking about the venue. Before you run to one of the hotels to choose from their "wedding programs", you have to talk to the Convention Center. They go above and beyond to help you make a wedding customized to exactly what you want. Can't say enough, our day was perfect. You deserve a curtain reveal on your big day!

    Cape May Convention Hall's reply:

    Jeff, thank you for the kind words! I truly loved watching you and Jenny grow as a couple over the time we spent planning your wedding! Thank you both so much for allowing me and my team to be a part of your ever lasting memories!! Wishing you both many many years of love!
    -Rachel
