The Perfect Place for Your Wedding

Village by the Sea is the perfect place for a wedding. Jill, Charlene, and Jayme made the experience one that we will never forget. They demonstrated their professionalism, efficiency, and experience every step of the way. Because of this, the stress that typically accompanies these events was nowhere to be found, and everything went smoothly. Our guests raved about the staff, the food, and the venue. Several of our guests had food allergies, and these ladies immediately took care of the situation, which allowed those guests to relax. Whenever we contacted them, they responded quickly, which calmed our nerves. Village by the Sea and its staff went above and beyond our expectations to make our experience one that we will never forget. Thank you, Jill, Charlene, and Jayme for a very special day.

A nautical reception

Working with the village was an easy choice! From the first time that my husband and I saw the ballroom, we knew that we wanted to have our reception there! Working with Charlene was a delight, as she was quick to respond, and was always willing to search for the answer if she didn鈥檛 have it herself! She gave us wonderful recommendations and pointers throughout the process. Towards the end, we ended up making some last minute changes which they were gladly willing to help us change. The day of the wedding they executed our reception with grace and style, and all of our guests raved about the wonderful service from the bar and the food! We are so happy that we decided to use village by the sea, as they made the process so simple and beautiful!
