The Perfect New Wedding Venue
We just got married in November in the new Lighthouse Cove Event Center. Two months later and everyone is still talking about how amazing our wedding was. From the beautiful bay views with the most gorgeous sunsets to the cocktail hour space where our friends and family gathered and ate delicious hors d’oeuvres to the opening of the grand ballroom where we were greeted with an amazing sit down dinner. All of the staff went above and beyond to make sure we had the best day and wedding ever. Lisa helped us with every detail to plan our perfect day, Hannah kept all of our out of town guests happy with our room block. Lisa, Drew, Pete, Chef and the entire banquet team made sure every detail was absolutely perfect the day of the wedding. I can’t thank the entire staff enough for making our dream wedding a reality. Every single detail was absolutely perfect. We recommend the Hyatt Place and Lighthouse Cove Event Center 100%. If you’re looking for great service, a beautiful new venue, beach sunsets, delicious food/drinks and a wedding that your guests will rave about then this is the venue to choose!Sent on 01/07/2020

All of the planning and details were executed perfectly. The food was amazing, the drinks were perfect, and the venue was gorgeous. Our wedding day went better than we could have ever imagined it, and we have the Lighthouse Cove Event Center to thank for turning our dreams into reality.Sent on 11/30/2019
We primarily worked with two people when visiting, planning, & coordinating various wedding elements. Both Drew & Lisa are amazing and helped us so much throughout this on-going project! They were responsive, knowledgeable, but also honest. We were working with them while the Lighthouse Cove Event Center was still under construction and they answered the 1000's of questions we had about the expected timelines, décor, overall space, chairs, sound equipment, services, etc. etc. etc. that goes into planning a wedding while assuring us that everything was going to be done well before our wedding date. While construction timelines do & will slip (essentially unavoidable!) these two helped ensure everything was ready to go before their events started and our wedding was no exception.
This venue is incredible. While booking we could only see computer renderings of the space, decorations, and final construction. Everything came out beautifully and exceeded our expectations. They put a lot of thought and attention to detail in every aspect of the space. Everything from the roll-up garage doors in the pre-function room, to providing an extra office space for groomsmen room, the gazebo, staircase, even the super comfortable chairs which allow you some slight reclining. I can't think of anything big or small that needs to be 'suggested' on… except maybe an XL dance floor for the wedding who likes to get down!
Another aspect of the venue that was very convenient and a huge plus for us was being attached to the Hyatt. We had a large number of out of town guests and wanted to try and maximize the time to spend with them the whole weekend. Having almost all non-local guests stay in the hotel allowed us to have multiple activities like a welcome event Friday night under the gazebo, activities and games on their beach Saturday day, and sitting in the breakfast area to chat with guests as they trickled in Sunday morning. This allowed us to have much more facetime with friends and family before and after the wedding reception so we could spend more time enjoying the wedding itself. It was also so convenient to not worry about transportation to/from the ceremony, reception, or after party. People came down from their rooms and we walked right out to the bars without worrying about extra transportation.
Day of, everything ran smoothly. The ceremony started right on time, Lisa ensured we followed the timeline of events throughout the evening, and there were plenty of staff on-site to keep the drinks flowing and meet the needs of our guests. They went above and beyond in other ways too including bringing a few dinner chairs for our last minute guests who were unable to easily find empty chairs, delivering some beverages to the groom when he was getting ready (in the on-site condo), and providing a nice little chicken/rice dish for our dog who made a surprise visit on the deck during the reception! The amazing wait staff was constantly making sure the bridal party (and all of the other guests I'm sure) had anything & everything they needed.
We are so grateful for everything the Lighthouse Cove Event Center staff did to make our wedding day the best it could possibly be.
