    Dream wedding at Big Chill

    The Big Chill provides views like no other venue. My family and I have been vacationing in Rehoboth since I was very young. I worked in Dewey Beach for one summer at the Rusty Rudder. I am familiar with the area and feel that the Big Chill had everything that I wanted for my big day. The venue has amazing food, you get views of the beach and the bay, there are games and areas for guests to take photos, and Kathy went above and beyond to bring my vision to life.

    Such a great venue ♥️

    We got married here in May 2022. The food and wine selection were amazing ☺️ The venue coordinator Kathy and her staff were incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. The views are great and the location is beautiful.

    Five out of Five stars, easy to work with.

    Perfect location, beachy, but can be made very elegant. Friendly and attentive staff (as the bride I was never without a glass of champagne all night).
