    Could not have had a more perfect day

    We had the adventure of planning a wedding during COVID-19. The Abbey wasn't our first (or our second) venue but when we were without a venue for the third time and contacted The Abbey EVERYTHING started falling into place. Emily and her whole team gave everything they had to make sure our wedding was perfect. And it really was. Emily's responsiveness was unparalleled and when we ran into some tricky parts with live streaming the ceremony she worked with all parties to get it just right. The food was amazing. The gazebo... oh my gosh the gazebo was just a stunning place to say "I Do". It seriously felt that Emily was as excited for us to get married as we were. We could not have asked for a better venue for such a special day. Both the Porto room for our reception and the Harbor Ballroom for our Wedding rehersal dinner are just amazing. Everything about it was seemless. We cannot thank Emily and The Abbey enough for all they did for us. We CANNOT wait to come back here year after year for our anniversary and sit down by the water for a drink and listen to live music. Despite a pandemic, it was seriously the best day ever.

    Do NOT hesitate!

    Our wedding was originally planned for 2020 but alas, covid struck and we were forced to postpone. The Abbey Resort literally made it SO easy I almost wasn’t even upset. Kelly was a DREAM to work with and is SO responsive to emails and calls. Do not hesitate booking your wedding here, you won’t regret it!
