There are as many choices for beautiful indoor and outdoor wedding sites as there are sunsets in the islands. Whether you envision a grand event for 500 at a waterfront resort with a candle-lit dinner and jazz band, or an intimate sunset affair on the beach with a feast of fresh local clams and oysters, you’ll find it in our venue listings.
Choose from a chapel in a vineyard at harvest time, a lakeside resort in the woods, a classic historic yacht, a beachfront vacation rental home and many other venues, large and small.
Each island venue has a range of services, from full wedding planning services to gentle do-it-yourself guidance, from high-end catering at one of the island hotels, to intimate farm-to-table dinners picked right from the garden.
