Amazing Venue for Wedding
We had our wedding in September in the Grand Hotel. The ceremony was on the beach, cocktail hour and dinner reception in Grand Hotel 5th floor ballroom. Everything was perfect. Katlyn and Danielle made the day extremely smooth and easy for us. We didn't need to worry about anything. We cannot express our gratitude enough for both of them. Thank you!Sent on 11/24/2018

I cannot say enough wonderful things about my wedding at The Grand Hotel in Cape May, NJ so bear with me on this long post! Katlyn Mogavero, the day of coordinator, is truly AMAZING at her job! From the first meeting with her months before our wedding she had our full trust! Her energetic and positive personality had us so excited about our big day that we were 100% confident it would be the best day ever and it really really was! Katlyn was extremely responsive to our many many emails, phone calls, and requests for meetings not to mention being available whenever we had the slightest question or concern. I don’t pride myself at being the best at decorations or having an eye for design but Katlyn was able to guide me along the way with picking linens and napkins and when it came to the big day she blew me away with the way she was able to decorate the room - it was everything I wanted and more! I have been to many weddings at gorgeous venues where the food was lacking, however this was NOT the case at The Grand! At our tasting we really couldn’t believe how delicious everything tasted and the day of was just as good! All of our guests raved about their meals and hor’ devours and the staff (which were so kind and attentive to myself and our guests) made sure my husband and I went home full which I know is a rarity for a bride and groom! We were lucky enough to have incredible weather the day of which made for fantastic pictures of our ceremony on the sundeck, but with the inside of the venue looking as incredible as it was I think it would have been beautiful to have the ceremony inside as well. I just want to end with thanking Katlyn and the rest of the staff at The Grand Hotel again! I’d highly highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for the perfect seashore wedding - you will not be disappointed!Sent on 09/26/2018

Our wedding was more beautiful than I could’ve imagined. Katlyn was absolutely wonderful. We are still having people reach out to us to tell us it was the best wedding they’ve ever attended! Thank you Grand!Sent on 08/24/2018
The Grand Hotel Cape May Price Rates
I have had the opportunity to play at this venue and the staff were truly helpful. The views are breath-taking. If you love the ocean, you need to take a look at this facility.
I have photographed a few times at the Grand Hotel Cape May and always thought they did a lovely job creating a wonderful wedding experience for their couples. This past January, they did something that showed just how above and beyond they go to provide excellent service to their couples. We had an all-out blizzard, and there was a wedding party staying at the hotel. They weren't actually getting married there, they were just staying there. The location where the wedding was supposed to take place had to (for very good reasons of safety) cancel on them two days before. You know how the Grand Hotel handled that? They gave this couple a wedding. On almost no notice. This could have been a disaster for the couple, but The Grand came through and did such an amazing job that the couple has nothing but good memories of their wedding day. It definitely could have gone another way. To cap it all off, at the end of the night when it wasn't safe for the vendors to go home, they put us up without charge. I deal with venues all the time, because I shoot about 60 weddings a year. The Grand Hotel is one of the few that seem to genuinely care for not only their clients, but their vendors as well. I highly recommend them for weddings, events, or just a lovely stay on the water.
Such a beautiful setting for a wedding. The staff and Hotel is so easy to work with. A great place for a special day.
