    Special Seaside Venue!

    From the day we were engaged, we knew Congress Hall was our wedding venue. Both my husband and I spent our summers vacationing in Cape May with many memories surrounding the seaside resort and now we have one for the books! Our wedding day was everything we dreamed of and more thanks to our wedding coordinator Jeri Anne. She was highly professional, organized and patient... at times, we had some fairly atypical requests that were always accommodated! There were a few hiccups the day of but nothing that hindered our overall experience.
    We were appreciative of the preferred vendor list that they provided upon booking and ended up using several of the vendors on the list. Our guests were impressed by all that Congress Hall had to offer, especially the food and the gorgeous grounds-- they are still commenting on what a lovely event it was!

    You can not go wrong with Congress Hall. They are the best of the best!!!! Jenn was fantastic (Give that woman a raise she had to deal with my crazy family). Well worth the money, I have been told so many times we had the best wedding ever, and that the service was amazing. They gave great vendor recommendations. Food was ON POINT!!!

    a gorgeously, unique venue

    5 Stars all the way around!! My husband and I got married in November at Congress Hall, and we could not have asked for a better venue to host our wedding day! From the booking with Krystina, to the planning with Jeri Anne, and then the actual wedding day with the whole CH Team, Congress Hall was absolutely accommodating and just spectacular! Jeri Anne was the absolute best to work with! She made sure everything was perfect. I did not have to worry about a thing; every detail was executed to my expectation. The service was impeccable and flawless! Our guests raved about the venue and are still raving about it today. Congress Hall is a gorgeously, unique venue in a quaint historical town. Thank you so much for a perfect, magical day that we will always remember!
