Incredible Venue and Staff

My wife and I recently had the pleasure of hosting our wedding at the Cape May Convention Center, and it was an absolutely magical experience from start to finish. From the moment we stepped foot inside this stunning venue, we knew this was the perfect choice for our special day.
The location is unbeatable. Nestled right on the picturesque shores of Cape May, the Convention Center offers breathtaking views of the ocean, creating a backdrop that dreams are made of. The sight of the sun setting over the water after our evening ceremony was simply enchanting and left our guests in awe.
The professionalism and attentiveness of the staff at the Cape May Convention Center was exceptional. From our initial inquiry to the final moments of our wedding day, Rachel and her team went above and beyond to ensure every detail was taken care of. They were accommodating, flexible, and truly made us feel like our wedding was their top priority. We had a lot of décor for the staff at the convention center to set up, and they exceeded our visions of how things would come together. Special thanks to their event coordinator, Rachel Ertle, who helped us plan every aspect of the day flawlessly.
Additionally, the surrounding area of Cape May offers a plethora of charming hotels, shops, and restaurants, making it an ideal destination for a wedding weekend. If you're searching for a wedding venue that offers beauty, elegance, and a touch of seaside charm, the Cape May Convention Center should be at the top of your list. We are forever grateful for the memories created in this wonderful space.
Thank you, Cape May Convention Center, for making our wedding day truly unforgettable!

We loved Convention Hall!

We had the most perfect wedding at Convention Hall! It has always been our dream to get married in Cape May and there was no better place than Convention Hall. Rachel was so easy and delightful to work with. She was super helpful in providing recommendations and helping to coordinate with each of our vendors. We loved that we were able to make our exact wedding vision come to life. You definitely cannot beat the breathtaking backdrop that this venue has to offer. Being able to say our vows in our favorite place right over the beach was so special. The large window in the reception space continues to provide the fabulous view of the beach and ocean. At this venue, our wedding felt like a destination wedding without having to travel and we loved brining our friends and families to our favorite place, Cape May. We cannot thank Convention Hall enough for making our day absolutely perfect. We hope we are invited to a wedding at this venue in the future so we can experience it again!

The best experience!!

Our wedding at the Cape May Beachfront Ballroom could not have been a more perfect experience! Of course the beachfront location alone can sell this venue itself, but nothing happens without great people to work with. If we could give Rachel and the entire team 10 stars, we would. Given it's a space where the couple is responsible for hiring vendors individually, Rachel was immensely helpful when it came to recommendations and completely took over managing all parties once things were booked. She was honest about her prior experiences dealing with certain vendors, but didn't push anyone on us. We felt absolutely no pressure throughout the process, and she was extremely open to working with new vendors that hadn't done an event there before. We dealt with both instance, but it really didn't matter because Rachel and team made sure everything was seamless, regardless. All of our vendors loved dealing with Rachel and her team as well - they just make it all so easy leading up to and especially the day of. They know what they're doing and will keep you organized without micromanaging you. We wouldn't have changed a thing!
