Beautiful setting for an amazing weekend!
My husband and I heard about IBTS through a family friend. When we went to check out the venue, we immediately knew it was the perfect spot for us! The staff is incredibly friendly and professional. Over the course of planning, the coordinator was quick to respond to all questions through email and/or phone calls. She was knowledgeable, organized and detail-oriented. The food was amazing!! Even now, weeks after the wedding, guests are still raving about the delicious food. Everyone at IBTS worked together to create an incredibly special and beautiful wedding! This is a place my husband and I will return to for many years to come.Sent on 10/15/2019

Lovely venue and amazing location!
We love working at Inn by The Sea! It's a perfect venue with attentive staff. Not to mention a great view from the hotel and so many photo opportunities from the hotel all the way down the path to the pristine beach.
Inn by the Sea is one of our favorite places to photograph a wedding -- there are so many beautiful spots on the property for family photos, and with a well maintained board walk that leads right to Crescent Beach, you just can't beat it for sunset photos. The reception tent is on one end of the property, making your event feel private and separate. Guests can comfortably enjoy a nice cocktail hour out on their expansive lawn, with views of the water. And the staff is always friendly, helpful, and accommodating to us. We love Inn by the Sea for an outdoor, coastal, wedding!
