    The Ocean House is a dream setting for a wedding. The service, the food, the hotel accommodations were all five star experiences. Toni Scotto is such a pleasure to work with, incredibly organized, responsive, and creative. We had the perfect day due to the folks at the Ocean House and cannot thank them enough for all their help.
