    June 2019 wedding - amazing!

    I honestly could not have asked for a better wedding. Of course, The Sullivan House is a spectacular venue, situated between two bodies of water on one of the most beautiful islands along the eastern seaboard. How can you go wrong?

    However, Sean and Linda do not rely solely on the naturally gorgeous location of their establishment. They do everything they can to ensure that the bride and groom plan their wedding in an organized and detailed fashion, offering helpful pointers along the way. They are the perfect balance of professionalism and friendliness. So many people talk about how planning their wedding is a nightmare. As someone who generally dislikes planning large events, they made it so very easy for me. I actually enjoyed the process (as did my husband)!

    The food is incredible - Sean is a gifted chef. The staff were so kind and welcoming to our guests. I can't tell you how many people came up to me to say that it was both the most beautiful AND fun wedding they had ever attended.

    Linda deserves special kudos for making sure that the ceremony and reception flowed seamlessly. There were no hiccups. So many couples say that they don't get the chance to eat/dance/drink during their own wedding. Because of Linda and how she organized everything, we had ample time to enjoy food, mingle with our guests, and let the joy and beauty of the day sink in. I honestly enjoyed every single moment of my wedding, and nothing felt like it went by too quickly.

    Finally, the Sullivan House is a great choice if you want your wedding to be more than one afternoon. We arrived on Thursday, had our rehearsal dinner on Friday, and the ceremony and reception on Saturday. Strongly recommend having the rehearsal dinner at the Sullivan House, as it allows you to settle in to the weekend (and they do a great job). Having it be a weekend, versus just a day, made the entire experience that much more memorable and lovely.

    I could write a novel about how much I love this place. We plan to return to celebrate anniversaries :) Thank you so much, Sean and Linda!!

    Amazing Wedding!

    Sean and Linda are so amazing to work with. They made our wedding day absolutely perfect! Both Sean and Linda were super helpful when it was raining on our wedding day, they were able to offer advice and back up plans that helped take the stress out of the weather. The food Sean and his team made was amazing, my guests are still talking about it! The Sullivan House has such charm and the views are truly amazing. I would highly recommend Sean and Linda and the entire team at The Sullivan House!
