My husband and I were married in June 2018 and I couldn’t have been happier with the Union Bluff Meeting House and Staff. Amy and her team were like a well oiled machine. I didn’t have to worry about a thing and everything ran so smoothly. She was very responsive to our questions throughout the process and was extremely helpful. The location is so beautiful overlooking the water and the food was also great. I highly recommend the Union Bluff Meeting House for anyone looking to get married in the York area.

The Union Bluff is an outstanding location for a wedding, but location is only part of what happens that day or weekend, It's the staff involved in treating the guests from check-in to check -out and they were outstanding. Our wedding coordinator Amy was such an asset to the bride and groom from day one, She has the ability to handle all situation and "oh" keep the parents under control.

Union Bluff Meeting House
From the second we walked in to the front doors of the Meeting House we knew this would be the best place for our wedding. Our first meeting with Darlene she made us instantly feel like family. As it should be whether you are two men, two woman, a man and a women she treated us as a couple in love wanting to have the perfect wedding. Once we chose the Meeting House as our venue Darlene listened to every little detail of what we wanted. The execution on our special day was flawless (even with last minute changes). Every recommendation she made, the DJ, photographer, florist were the right choices for us. Having your ceremony on the lawn with the beautiful ocean backdrop made for stunning pictures. Most of our guests stayed at the Union Bluff Hotel which was so convenient for out of state travelers. My wife and I would recommend anyone looking for the best wedding experience to contact Darlene and her Team for your special day.

We've been working alongside Darlene and her staff at the Union Bluff Meeting House for the past two years now, and things run so smoothly here. Darlene and her staff are extremely helpful. The beach-views from their property are excellent. It's an all-around unforgettable experience. A perfect venue for your wedding.
