The food was incredible

My husband and I got married at Oceanview of Nahant on June 5, 2021. It was the best day of our lives, but leading up to this wedding was a little crazy because of COVID. My husband and I struggled with the decision of moving our wedding and losing our date. Our wedding coordinator, Allison, worked with us to keep our date in addition to saving a winter date in 2022 at no additional cost, which was so beyond generous of her. However, we got extremely lucky with the guidelines lifting the week before our wedding and being able to have our full wedding on June 5th. Allison worked with us throughout all the decisions and guideline changes to make us feel fully informed and prepared for what our June 5th wedding would look like. She also dealt with several requests from my family, including having a wine wall, champagne wall, and 2 signature drinks! She also helped place all of our homemade centerpieces the day of the wedding at no additional cost. In addition to Allison, you have the whole Oceanview staff behind you. We worked with many coordinators during the rehearsal and the day of, and they were all incredible. They made our day easy and fun, and they always had the biggest smiles on their faces! Other things I think are worth mentioning include the complimentary tasting you get to help decide on food choices for the wedding (it's really fun, you get open bar and food and get to see a bunch of the couples that will be getting married that year). BTW, the food was INCREDIBLE. We highly recommend doing their grilled cheese station during cocktail hour - everyone at our wedding was raving about it. Also, the surf and turf options were a huge hit and not significantly higher prices than the other meal options. We did the lobster and filet - the lobster was perfectly presented (I was nervous I'd be flying juices on my dress but it was perfectly placed within the shell with no additional work for the guests) and the filet was perfectly cooked. I also want to mention the fact that you can pay for an additional hour the night of your wedding to go outside on their stone beach for smores, beer, wine, and continued dancing. My husband and I got to do our last dance outside with our guests surrounding us with sparklers which I'd never seen before - something super special :) I know I'm forgetting so many things to mention, but just know that you will be taken care of by Oceanview and they will make your day one you will never forget. For those at OV reading this, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR EVERYTHING, WE REALLY DID HAVE THE BEST DAY OF OUR LIVES :)
