Up to 200 guests

Dreaming of a casually elegant, beachfront wedding? If so, we invite you to celebrate your love at The Owenego. Here, you will enjoy incomparable water views, outstanding cuisine, and impeccable service.

Situated on a grassy knoll, The O offers sweeping views of Long Island Sound with the legendary Thimble Islands scattered in the backdrop. Many couples choose to exchange their vows on the expansive lawn, nestled in front of our enchanting, waterfront garden. After the ceremony, many Owenego brides choose to kick off their heels and slide on flipflops to fully take advantage of our beachfront location.

After a fabulous cocktail hour on our seaside deck, continue the celebration in our historic inn, where the surrounding windows allow the exterior seascape to mingle with the interior decor - a decor that is purposefully neutral in palette so as to best showcase your individual style. While we offer menu packages as a springboard for ideas, we will happily work with you to customize your menu to reflect your personal tastes. Family-owned and operated, our wedding couples and their guests are welcomed as an extension of the family.

Here at The O, our gracious staff pays meticulous attention to the details, so that you can revel in each other, your guests, and the magic of the day. Call us today, so that we can help you realize the waterfront wedding of your dreams.

    June Wedding at the owenego

    We had our wedding at the Owenego in June and we couldn’t have dreamed for a more beautiful day. John and his team were incredible. They made us feel at home the minute we toured the venue. It was a no brainer to have our wedding at the Owenego. We must have received a comment on the venues beauty from every guest!!

    Absolute Perfection!

    My husband and I had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Owenego in June and it was more amazing than we ever could have imagined! Our guests could not stop telling us how stunning the venue was and how delicious all of the food was. The staff was extremely available, knowledgeable, and helpful throughout our entire wedding planning process and wedding day. I felt so comfortable and relaxed that they had everything we wanted and needed under control. Our wedding ran so smoothly and was exactly what we wanted. You cannot beat the amazing scenery at this venue! On top of this, food is plentiful and delicious and the staff is extremely good at what they do. I highly recommend the Owenego and can't thank them enough for making our day so unforgettable!

    The owenego - a hidden gem!

    John and all staff at the Owenego felt like family by the time my wedding was over. The Owenego is a hidden gem - beauitful views make for great picutres. The raw bar and cocktail hour was absolutely delicious. John was always very honest and flexible with us and even suggested ways we could save money. No hidden fees. What made us most happy was how happy our guests were. The staff at Owenego made everyone feel so welcome and Lynn did such a great job making sure we stuck to our timeline. Between the beautiful views and the beautiful staff - good vibes were everywhere the night of our wedding!
