    Our wedding experience last weekend was nothing short of incredible. The entire staff is professional, composed and genuine. and along with Christina and Colleen, our coordinators, provided a million little special touches. It was a beautiful late afternoon ceremony and cocktail hour on the front lawn, and we (the bride and groom) were granted a personal waiter (thank you, Ben) who indulged us. Our inside reception room for 60 guests was transformed into an elegant Tuscan themed space. The dinners were presented with a flair by a cast of wait staff. Our family and guests are raving about the impeccable rooms and views and the kindness of everyone we encountered. Thank you, Inn by the Sea. We're so pleased we chose you!

    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.

  • Nadra Photography

    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!
