At this gorgeous venue, you and your beloved can celebrate your special day in the heart of the historic Odiorne Point State Park, surrounded by picturesque ocean views and the rugged coastline. You will also be supporting the vital work of a conservation organization passionate about protecting marine life in New Hampshire and beyond.

The venue can accommodate events of up to 200 guests so that you can share your special day with all your nearest and dearest. Crashing waves and sparkling sea views will form the backdrop for your romantic exchange of vows at the park's dedicated ceremony site. After you have tied the knot, you and your beloved can spend time taking your wedding photos and exploring the surrounding coastline before meeting your guests for your reception in the al fresco event tent. This 40' x 90' function space, with panoramic ocean views, can transform to fit your wedding theme and color scheme and is ideally suited for an evening of dining, dancing, and making memories with your loved ones.

Wedding venue!

We just had our wedding at the Seacoast Science Center last weekend, and I am STILL getting messages from all of my guests about how incredible the venue was. So many of my friends now want to get married there. Working with the SSC was so seamless - they are wonderful, kind and hardworking people and it really shows. The tent, yard and ceremony area are breathtaking; not to mention the incredible grounds for getting some amazing photographs. Friends- do not waste your time looking around, book your wedding at the Seacoast Science Center, you won't regret it!

COVID-19 Ceremony was Perfection!

Despite COVID-19 derailing a lot of our wedding plans, Sara at the Seacoast Science Center was absolutely wonderful! We planned to have just the ceremony at the SSC originally, and we got a lot of bang for our buck! The backdrop of the ocean was perfect, and Sara made everything run so smoothly. She was always prompt and upbeat, and super flexible with our changing plans. I was nervous that we would have SSC patrons all around (we got married on a Sunday at noon, so it wasn't after hours), but everyone was so kind and it felt very private despite it being public. There's all kinds of places to take beautiful pictures around the park. Would recommend in a heartbeat!

Wedding of our dreams despite COVID-19

Sara was more than amazing. We had to postpone our large wedding due to COVID-19 and planned an Elopement in the middle of it all as our date held so much meaning to us. Sara was flexible, alert, and never stopped working towards making our day everything we could have wanted in the middle of a global pandemic. She worked her butt off and continued to do so until the very last moment. She made it seem so effortless and never let a question or worry go unanswered. She made this our perfect day, our perfect moment and we couldn鈥檛 be more grateful. I couldn鈥檛 recommend this gorgeous venue or amazing coordinator anymore than I do. Usually brides have worries, and I got to go at this whole day worry free thanks to the SSC and Sara. If you can, book them, with no hesitation. Oh and bonus, the places for pictures are endless!

SSC is one of our favorite venues! Not only because it's incredibly friendly and hard-working staff, but for the most amazingly beautiful settings along the New England coast. The grounds are immaculate and allow for plenty of room for the guests to spread out and enjoy~and every sunset is spectacular! Looking forward to many more events at SSC
