    Perfect Delaware Beach Venue

    Our wedding on September 18, 2022 was absolutely perfect. We have been vacationing in the Rehoboth/Dewey area for over a decade and knew this was where we wanted to get married. Upon meeting with Lisa in January 2021, we knew we would be in excellent hands. We were immediately treated like family and knew we weren't just another customer to not only Lisa but to the entire staff of Lighthouse Cove/Hyatt. Since all of our guests would be traveling from NJ to DE, we wanted to make it a weekend-long event, which Lisa worked her magic to make happen. A beautiful bonfire on the bayside the night before, a fantastic reception, and brunch the following morning. Everything was organized perfectly and went off without a single worry on our end. On the day of the wedding, we learned that our cake from a local vendor did not arrive. Lisa and her team worked to try and contact the vendor to no avail. With little to no time left to get it done, Lisa and her team quickly resolved the issue and had a cake ready for the ceremony. Our guests said the cake was amazing and had no clue it wasn't the planned cake until we told them. Now for the venue... perfect, perfect, perfect. The Hyatt itself is easily one of the best hotels in the area and has consistently been our go-to place to stay. The view of the bay is unmatched. Our ceremony was on the deck and was set up perfectly, the pictures are phenomenal. During the cocktail hour, the pre-function space was a huge hit. During the reception, having access to the main ballroom, pre-function area, and deck with firepits gave every guest a choice of location for what fit them best. The food was incredible and went above and beyond our expectations. All of our guests commented on how amazing the cocktail hour hors d'oeuvres were. And the crab cakes?! The best you'll find in the area. Overall we could not be any happier with our day. Lisa, Hannah, Maeson, and Jacque (plus all of the other wonderful staff) made our wedding dreams come true and we will forever be a part of the Lighthouse Cove/Hyatt family!

    Wedding July 23, 2022

    Our wedding July 23, 2022 was amazingly beautiful, it was everything we dreamed it would be. Our guests were looking forward to our wedding as much as we were. Most of our guests traveled to our destination, it was said to us that it was the wedding of the century. We knew after meeting with Lisa Wilgus, director of catering and event service that this venue was unlike any other venue in the area and was the venue of our choice. The Lighthouse Cove Event Center food is delicious and was well prepared. We were so incredibly happy with all the staff at the Lighthouse and highly recommend this venue.

    Best Wedding Weekend!

    We could not be happier with our wedding at the Lighthouse Cove Event Center. My husband and I got married on June 25, 2022. We had our ceremony on the bayside beach and our reception in the Sunset Room. Lisa and her staff really made our wedding weekend so special. From the considerate surprises throughout the weekend to the attentive service, we were truly able to relax and just enjoy the entire weekend. We booked our wedding at the Lighthouse Cove Event Center after our first tour of the venue. The water views are stunning, the on-site hotel is perfect for guests, and the central Dewey Beach location is ideal! Plus, we knew that we wanted to work with Lisa and her wonderful staff! She was so helpful and reassuring during the entire process. We even had an issue with our original florist just a few weeks before our wedding and Lisa kept us calm and put us in contact with a different vendor who really brought our entire vision to life.

    We couldn鈥檛 have done this without her! Our guests are still talking about the delicious food and excellent service.

    In addition to our wedding, we hosted a morning after brunch in the Prefunction Room the next morning with a large buffet of delicious breakfast foods and it was a hit! Lisa and her staff made sure to carry over leftover flower arrangements, centerpieces, and our audio guestbook. They even played our slideshow from the night before. It was stunning! All of our friends and family talk about wanting to repeat this weekend over and over exactly the same way, and my husband and I already plan to spend our anniversaries at the Hyatt in Dewey for years to come. We are so grateful for the thoughtfulness and generosity of the Lighthouse Cove Event Center!
