    My wedding was a dream

    My wedding was absolutely perfect and it wouldn’t have been without the wedding coordinator Ashton. She was amazing to work with and goes so far out of her way for every couple! My wedding was so amazing here.

    Absolutely Perfect

    Wow! There aren’t even words to express how happy we are with the Margate. The venue is absolutely stunning! We got married 10/10/2020 and as you can imagine, planning a wedding during the pandemic was not a lot of fun. The Margate, and most especially, our amazing coordinator Ashton really helped to make the whole process smooth and easy. Ashton was with us every step of the way, she checked in often and helped with any questions we had (and we had a lot lol). It was so nice knowing that we didn’t have to worry about anything because she would take care of things before they even became an issue. The entire day was absolutely perfect and so many people have told us how much they loved our wedding! We might be a little biased but we think it was the best wedding ever and we can’t thank Ashton and the Margate enough!!

    Amazing Venue

    The staff at the Margate were super flexible. We had to reschedule our original date due to Covid and they were amazing with the whole process. The venue itself is gorgeous and you can't go wrong. We ended up having our ceremony outside on the pavilion and our reception in tent, followed by a fire on the beach. It was everything I could have ever wanted. The pictures you are able to get from this venue are truly amazing.

I have worked with the staff at the Margate for several events and they are WONDERFUL, there are not many lakeside views that are better... ANYWHERE Mariah Room is upstairs and overlooks the lake, Grand Ballroom is Downstairs and is large enough for 200+ people and they have the availability to have parties in the Blackstone's lounge as well as an outside tent. I highly recommend having your wedding at the Margate Resort You will not regret your choice of venue
