“This venue was an absolute dream! The staff was amazing, so attentive and helpful and very professional. They were very willing to work within our budget! It was wonderful because the rehearsal dinner, ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, and overnight stay was all at the same location!! I cannot say enough great things about this venue!!! All our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever attended!”

“What can I say about a place that made my dream wedding come true? Everything about the Atlantic Oceanside Hotel was perfect from the effort the staff put into the day all the way to just the beauty of the location…..We utilized The Willows mansion for our day and it was best decision we ever made. We had the entire willows just to our guests and wedding party for the weekend which made it so personal and intimate. Do yourself a favor and get married here.”
