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.

Sonya, the club manager, is the most amazing human. She made our day PHENOMENAL. Not one thing went wrong thanks to her dedication leading up to and on our best day ever.
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.Sent on 07/02/2019

When I first walked into West Dennis Yacht Club, I knew it was the perfect location for our reception. We were looking for a location that was right on the water and would give our guests a true Cape Cod experience, and you can’t beat WDYC. Sonya is amazing to work with and she helped our wedding reception go off without any issues. We planned our wedding from 1800 miles away, so working with vendors who were flexible with our schedule and comfortable planning from a distance was crucial. Sonya responded to all of our emails promptly and we had multiple meetings with her when we were home. Sonya helped bring every vision I had to life and have the reception I had always dreamed about. The night of our wedding, every time I turned around, Sonya and her staff were there making sure that we had everything that we needed. I could go on and on about our experience with Sonya as she was just so incredible to work with.
Scott Allen’s catering is delicious! I have a food allergy and Scott created a menu that I didn’t have to think about it because I could eat everything that was served. We had a raw bar, passed hors d'oeuvres, and our dinner options were delicious. Our guests raved about our food!
West Dennis Yacht Club is a beautiful location with outstanding staff who go above and beyond and food that is outstanding. We were able to have the reception of our dreams here and would highly recommend WDYC to anyone looking for a true Cape Cod wedding!
