Wedding Stories

Aliesje & Ryan Married June 18, 2016

We had our wedding at the Beach House just over a week ago on a Saturday afternoon/evening.  We planned for an outdoor ceremony on the grass and the Beach House staff set up our desired amount of white chairs exactly the way we talked about. Right before the ceremony, the sky opened up and it began to pour, the hardest rain I’ve seen in a long time.  Instead of socializing and waiting outside, our guests had to come indoors to stay dry.  Sarah and the staff were incredible at keeping the guests organized and happy.  Sarah held out two umbrellas for myself and my bridesmaids as we snuck inside the back door to avoid being seen.  She was so positive and accommodating and even brought us all a glass of Prosecco while we hid out in the back hallway.  There was also a staff member watching the door so no guests would accidentally see us before the ceremony started.  The rain eventually stopped, the sky brightened up, and Sarah and her staff rushed outside to dry off the chairs and then started to move people outside. We were able to have the ceremony as planned on the grass overlooking the water and I am so grateful we did because it was absolutely beautiful, the air was fresh, and it made the whole experience even more exciting!

We chose to have a buffet dinner with prime rib, chicken with prosciutto, ravioli, veggies, potatoes, a couple of salads and our guests could not stop talking about how GOOD the food was!  “The best wedding food I’ve ever had!” Said one of my friends.  “I wish I ate more of it!”  Said a family member.  Even a week later, our guests are still bringing it up!  We were so impressed by the Chef and the kitchen staff, what an amazing job!  I want to go back and have the dinner all over again!

For us, everything was flawless - the music played at the ceremony by Sarah (speaker and iPod), the food coming out and being cleaned up, drinks being served to some very “thirsty” guests, water consistently being refilled, glasses and plates cleared as the night went along.  All of the staff were professional and helpful.  Sarah is exceptional, so pleasant, positive, and hardworking!

It was effortless working with Lisa to plan the event as well.  She is so knowledgable, accommodating, helpful, and organized.  She was able to answer all of my questions throughout the entire planning process and also had great suggestions to help make the ceremony and all the parts of the reception transition smoothly.  She provided us with an estimate and worst-case scenario outlines so there were no surprises.  To sum it up, she consistently provided peace of mind throughout planning.  If ever I was worried or over-thinking something, I would email her or arrange a meeting and always felt relaxed and more excited after!

Obviously, the venue is what drew us to the Beach House initially.  It’s effortlessly beautiful inside and out, and for us it captured the classy, west coast feel that we were after.  Many guests had never been there before and they thought it was stunning!

I want to say a final thank you on behalf of Ryan and I and all of our guests, to everyone who helped to make June 18 an amazing day!  THANK YOU!

Brittany & Tyler, Married July 19th 2014

When my husband and I got engaged, we knew we wanted a venue near the ocean, with a spot to have the ceremony outside and the reception inside.  We also wanted a venue with a west coast feel to it. When we went to the Beach House for the first time, it was everything we had wanted.  The location and view are stunning, the beach and grass area are perfect for a ceremony, and the inside had a warm, rustic and relaxing feel to it.

We booked the Beach House a year in advance, and thus began the journey of working with Lisa and Sarah.  We were completely blown away by their dedication and hard work to make our day a perfect day.  They could not have been more accommodating and flexible with our ideas and visions.  Everything that my husband and I had in mind, they made a reality.  They genuinely cared about making our wedding day the day we had dreamed of, and so it was! The event staff started bright and early on July 19th, setting the restaurant up for our reception, they were efficient and timely and did a beautiful job of setting up the tables, chairs, and linens.

The ceremony set up was done exactly how we had wanted it as well.   As our day went on, the event staff took care of our every need and made sure that if there was anything we needed or wanted, they were there for us.  The dinner was absolutely amazing, the chefs are so talented and many of our guests said that it was the best meal they had ever had at a wedding.

We can honestly say that Lisa and Sarah exceeded our expectations throughout the year leading up to our big day.  Thank you to all made our wedding day a smooth and beautiful day we will never forget!
