Coastal Dream Wedding

Inn by the Sea is the most beautiful place to get married. My husband and I had a lovely time working with Hana and Caitlin planning our dream September wedding. Every detail I envisioned, Hana made it happen. I felt so relaxed on my wedding day because everything was being taken care of by Hana and the team. Wedding planning can be a stressful, long process but working with Hana through it all made it enjoyable. From coordinating vendors to selecting rental items Hana had it all under control. Don’t even get me started on the food, it was AMAZING. Chef did a fabulous job preparing our meal selections and hors d’oeuvres. The rooms are absolutely gorgeous and make you want to stay for months on end! Everyone is just so friendly and accommodating at Inn by the Sea. If you’re looking for a stress free, coastal, elegant venue then this is your place. Thank you again Hana and Caitlin. We will never forget our day!

Wedding Day

Our wedding was the most perfect day, everything from the rehearsal dinner the previous night to the wedding the next day. The food and service was excellent! This venue is gorgeous. The only thing we were disappointed about was our wedding cake was thrown away rather then saved, and we were unaware of that. Couldn’t recommend this place more!

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!
