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.
Many venues are available year round, and will help you envision and plan the perfect spring, fall or winter wedding, anniversary or renewal of your vows.
