The West Dennis Yacht Club is a marina with a ballroom in the greater Cape Cod, Massachusetts area for couples’ wedding day. This venue allows couples to marry with boats and tall grasses in the background of their ceremony, and then celebrate with a reception in a coastal ballroom. This venue is located just 10 minutes down the road from the Whydah Pirate Museum.
Facilities and Capacity
Couples can invite up to 200 guests to their wedding at the West Dennis Yacht Club. A wedding ceremony takes place outdoors on the venue’s lawn, located on the banks of the Bass River. This river contains sailboats with lowered sails and other watercraft tied to docks, making for a nautical wedding background as couples begin their lives together. Across the river, tall grasses wave in the wind. Sunsets make gorgeous colors for couples choosing to have a ceremony later in the day, or for couples who want to sneak away for photographs as the day’s activities press on. From there, it’s inside to the yacht club’s ballroom for a coastal reception. Hardwood floors and massive floor-to-ceiling windows, decorated with sailing flags, await in this reception space. Overhead, teal and grey decor sets the mood for the space.
Ceremonies and receptions can be hosted jointly at this nautical property. Additionally, the venue opens its doors for bridal showers and engagement parties. The staff helps couples decide all the details of their big day with wedding and event planning expertise in the months and weeks leading up to the celebration. On the day of the wedding, couples can focus on each other and their guests thanks to helpful staff members who take care of the cleanup and setup. Liability insurance is also offered at this club. Barware and linens can be found through this venue, so that outside companies or caterers needn’t worry about providing their own. Couples and guests alike will delight in the convenience of onsite parking.

Dream day and planning experience
The venue itself is BEAUTIFUL. The main room has an amazing wall of windows that makes the whole room so light and airy. The ceremony space overlooks the harbor and is so dreamy. WDYC also has such a phenomenal wrap around porch, and full service bar. WDYC is also a quick drive to the beach for pictures and the dock is available at the club as well!
West Dennis also partners with Scott Allen for catering and OH MY GOODNESS. So incredibly delicious. Food was a huge priority for us and he delivered. He even took one of our appetizer ideas (chicken and waffles) and turned it into the most delicious entree - our guests still rave about it.
Overall, this pair was a match made in heaven for us. WDYC is absolutely picturesque and so accommodating; Scott Allen’s food is impeccable. You cannot go wrong booking your wedding here.
