    Perfect venue for water and sunset views

    Beautiful, large, spacious event space with stunning views. Used the outdoor "garden" space on the water for the ceremony, large deck for cocktail hour, and the sunset was incredible through the many windows.

    Really Great Venue

    My husband and I originally were to be married in June of 2020. Due to Covid, we had to move our wedding 4 times. Clare from ocean gateway was so fantastic throughout the whole process. She was very responsive and organized, and was so very nice. As others noted, the venue is a blank canvas, but the backdrop of the water (which ironically was all fog the day of our wedding) is so beautiful. Our friends and family all commented on how cool it be venue was. Also there was plenty of room for our 185 person wedding which was a big plus. We did hire an event coordinator to help with our wedding, but honestly you could probably get away with just a day of coordinator to help organize vendors because Clare makes the ocean gateway side of things very easy.

    Beautiful Location

    Not only is the facility beautiful, but the staff was so helpful and accommodating every step of the way. Planning a wedding during a pandemic can be challenging, but Clare made it an easy and enjoyable process. The park outside is beautiful, and so is the reception area. All of our guests raved about the beauty of the venue.
