Our first impression of Oceanview is when we arrived for our first showing and there was a sign on the door that said, “Welcome Soon-to-Be Newlyweds Ben & Courtney”. That pretty much sold us right then and there. The building on the outside did not have a ton of curb appeal at the time - the owners have since put a lot of money into the place and have made some incredible renovations. We met with Matt and walked through the venue with him and were blown away by the space and the view. That view - something that never grows old and is sure to blow your guests away! When we first toured Oceanview the Stone Terrace was just a rendering - we watched the progress build as we planned our wedding day - which is pretty special! From the emails and phone calls with Matt and the team to every visit to the venue, the team went above and beyond to take care of us and make us feel special. We know they host a ton of weddings at Oceanview but still we were made to feel as if we were the only ones that mattered. On our wedding day itself Matt and his team handled everything with care. Ralph, the bridal concierge, is incredible. Seriously, incredible. He runs the show on the day of the event and knows when to grab the right people at the right time. We felt like VIPs when he would come up to us and ask to borrow us for a minute. He took all of our stresses away and handled everything - including our cake that was on a very unstable stand. I don’t even have the words to describe how incredible the people are at Oceanview. They helped make planning our day as painless and simple as possible. They went above and beyond on our wedding day to take care of us and our guests and make us all feel welcomed and supported. Your day at Oceanview will be incredible - the only thing you’ll be sad about is when it is all over and you don’t get to work with these amazing folks any longer.
The Oceanview is truly the best venue in the world! After visiting a few years ago for a family wedding, I knew that this is the place I wanted to get married. And this was even before all of the changes that they've made inside and outside the venue. Every year the place just keeps getting better and better. It really just shows how much that the owners care as they are constantly making the venue better. Allison, Caitlin, Matt, Ralph and the rest of the team were so accommodating and helpful throughout the entire process. They were even nice enough to give me extra time to decide to on where I wanted to set my ceremony up because of changes in the weather. My guests are all still talking about how delicious the food was and they are a tough crowd.. You can't bet the location and the view! I could not have imagined a more perfect place!
The Oceanview was fantastic in every way. First of all, the place is absolutely stunning. The new terrace is beautiful. The use of the door in the back made my entrance feel so grand, and the curtains blocked our guests from the wind. The inside is decorated so lovely, that I did not feel the need to buy any flowers for decor or bring many other decorations. It is literally right on the water, so the view is stunning, and you can see Boston in the distance from the park right next door for some great pictures. Aside from the aesthetic, the Oceanview is run by true professionals. From the very first appointment with them, they were extremely customer service oriented. We booked a year and a half before our wedding, and Matt promptly responded to all of my questions throughout that entire time. We had our final planning meeting and rehearsal with Allison, and she was so down to earth and lovely. We wanted a simple, clam bake wedding, and we never felt pressured to upgrade on anything we didn't want to do. To them, it was all about making our day the way we wanted it. They set up our decorations the day of and received our ceremony flower delivery before we even got to the venue. Ralph kept the day running smoothly the entire time, which allowed us, the wedding party, and our guests to just relax and enjoy the day. The food was amazing - everyone was raving about it for days! And the fire pit finally was a perfect end to a perfect day. I cannot recommend this venue highly enough.
The Oceanview of Nahant did an amazing job helping us plan, prepare, and execute the fairy tale wedding we were looking for. The staff at The Oceanview was attentive, knowledgeable, and very personable. They provided us with checklists, and helped us think of every aspect of the wedding that we might have overlooked. Planning our wedding was simple and stress free! As the bride you are able to get dressed in the bridal suite, which allows more than ample space for you and your wedding party. The bride and groom are also provided with your own personal Butler (Ralph) to assist in any way possible, he also acts as your personal wedding coordinator to make sure your wedding is on time, and events run according to your plan. The Oceanview was able to accommodate last minute changes, and made the entire day flow with ease without any worry or stress. Their food menu has more options than any other venue we looked at, including a clambake and dessert smores station on the beach. Their new outdoor wedding ceremony space is picture perfect, and beats any venue in the vicinity! They even put up 2 American Flags and 2 Marine Corps Flags, that we brought which meant a lot to us. Overall the staff helped us plan a beautiful wedding, suggested an amazing photographer and DJ, and was able to accommodate all of our requests. The grounds at The Oceanview is absolutely stunning and can produce amazing pictures rain or shine! The decor is adorable, unique, and all hand crafted and designed. The owners have wonderful taste which keeps your guests finding something new that they love about the venue. We received so many compliments on the food, service from staff, and the overall venue! We are so happy in choosing The Oceanview as our venue for our wedding. We highly recommend booking your next event at The Oceanview as they will meet and exceed your expectations. They are professional, timely, and truly have a passion for providing the best experience for you and your guests!
My husband and I held our wedding reception at The Oceanview of Nahant on June 10th, 2016 and it was the absolute best day of our lives. The team at the Oceanview gave us a once in a lifetime experience that we will remember and cherish forever. From the day that we first visited The Oceanview, we both fell in love. From the view to the food to the employees, The Oceanview continued to blow us away with the level of service that we received every step of the way. The day of the wedding went off without a hitch, at least from what we could tell! Matt and Allison were there to help us in any way that we needed and Ralph was everything that we hoped he would be and much more! The bustle on my dress fell out MULTIPLE times throughout the night (because I gave the wrong instructions from the seamstress). Every time I asked, he was there to help me. I don't know what I would have done without him on that day. I continue to get compliments from our guests on the amazing time that they had. If are you considering selecting The Oceanview as your wedding venue, DO IT because I can guarantee you will not regret the decision! A special thank you to Matt, Allison, Ralph, the amazing chef, waiters, waitresses, bartenders and everyone else behind the scenes at The Oceanview that made our day so special.
Thank you so much for all you did to help us. You were nothing short of spectacular. Ralph was amazing as well, so easy-going, and great to talk to. He kept everyone so calm and made sure they were having fun! It was such a beautiful day and we were so lucky to share our wedding day with our families and now, our Oceanview family. Thank you for getting the information on my grandmother's wedding year and my parents years of marriage. It was so meaningful and thoughtful to reflect. You have no idea how special you made this day for us, our families, and friends. Thank you, thank you, thank you! We have received endless texts, messages, and voicemails about what a wonderful time our guests had. Love, Kerry & George
I got married 10/23/15 at the Oceanview of Nahant and I can not say enough wonderful things about this venue. Their food selection was incredibly impressive, and the tasting was more like a party- so hard to chose the menu because everything is that delicious. During every step of the way, staff was friendly, patient, and professional. They invest all their effort into your day and care about your wedding as much as you do- pouring over every detail and making sure things go perfectly. You can't beat the view, you just can't. It is right on the ocean at the end of a dead end street. You feel like you're in your own little bubble and everything is gorgeous- the ocean, the park, the beach behind the venue.
From the moment we walked into the Oceanview of Nahant my husband and I fell in LOVE! They had a sweet note on the door for our walk through that read "welcome newlyweds to be". This made our visit so personable. Matt was just amazing. He answered all of our questions and walked us through the entire venue. This place was extra special to me because my parents also got married there 27 years ago. From the time we booked our venue to the day of the wedding Matt, Allison, and Brenda were always there to answer all my questions! The day of the wedding they made everything so easy. Everyone made sure we had everything we needed. Ralph our room captain was truly spectacular. He was there for our every need. He also made sure we were running on time during our reception. The staff at Oceanview of Nahant put my at such ease the day of the wedding. I will be recommending them to anyone looking to get married at a beautiful venue on the water!
Beyond perfection!!!! Our wedding was incredibly beautiful and everybody had a blast. The Oceanview is much more than a great venue or an incredible beach setting, to me, right now, it represents a team who work really really hard to make your wedding day just the way you want it. Brenda, Ralph and the rest of the staff are really professional, wonderful and very nice people. I would STRONGLY recommend this awesome venue to anyone. We loved it!! Thank you so much for making our wedding so special and fun!
Oceanview of Nahant helped make our special day a dream come true. From the moment we visited Oceanview we fell in love. The beautiful venue, fantastic view, delicious food, and exceptional customer service are unmatched! Our wedding day was PERFECT and we did not have a worry in the world the entire day! We wish we could do that day over and over again! Thank you Oceanview!! Our wedding day is something we will remember fondly and cherish for the rest of our lives together. You cannot find a better place to say your "I Do"s!
My husband and I married at the Oceanview of Nahant on April 12, 2015, and we highly recommend it to other couples! The view alone is worth booking for, but we also received excellent service throughout the planning and on our wedding day. Brenda and Mike have done some wonderful renovations to the property, and you can see the thought they put in to every little detail. Everything was so beautiful! We booked the all-inclusive package, which cut my planning nearly in half. It took care of so many details, and we found the price very reasonable. We also appreciated that the staff never just threw a number at us while planning. Every quote was accompanied by a written, detailed explanation so we understood exactly what we were paying for and receiving. Matt was wonderful to work with, he always responded to our questions quickly and thoroughly. We also loved having exclusive use of the property for our wedding. Our guests had the freedom to roam from the ballroom, to the lounge, to the balconies all night long. The wait staff was fantastic, very friendly and helpful! Our guests also complimented the delicious appetizers and entrees repeatedly. We wanted our wedding to be a blissful night that our guests would enjoy and always remember, and the Oceanview absolutely gave that to us.
