Where to even begin. If you are looking for a beautiful venue on the water with breathtaking views and people who will help you plan the wedding of your dreams, then Oceanview of Nahant is the place for you! Chris and I got married here August 18th of this year and people are... Read More still reaching out to us saying that this was hands down the best wedding they have ever been to. After going in for the tour, seeing the BEAUTIFUL work they've put into this venue, and meeting with the incredibly nice staff, there was no question that this was going to be the place where we'd celebrate our special day. We toured Oceanview in 2015, and since then, there have been numerous renovations to make this venue look even better, which we didn't even think was possible. Having compassionate wedding coordinators is incredibly important to ensure the process goes smoothly. Every single staff memeber here at Oceanview is professional, extremely responsive, and very helpful. They answered every one of our questions with detail and assisted with our vision. The day of the event was just FLAWLESS thanks to the staff at Oceanview. Every little detail was taken care of because of their attention and dedication to the bride and groom. The fire pit finale with our last dance outside by the ocean was another unforgettable experience!! And lastly, the food was more than delicious. People are still talking to us about how incredible the food was! There is not one thing about the night we would have changed. It was honestly perfect. We would HIGHLY recommend Oceanview of Nahant to anyone and everyone!! Ralph, Allison, Matt, and everyone at Oceanview, thank you so very much for helping make this the wedding of our dreams.

I fell in love with Oceanview as soon as I walked in the door! I loved the view, the décor, and all the cute little signs they have throughout the venue.

And of course we loved the option to have our last dance down on the beach with sparklers. After our first visit I remember getting in the car and I said to my fiancé, I think I love it!!!

And on the day of the wedding, we didn’t have to worry about anything, they had it all under control. We got so many compliments from our guests on the venue, the food, and how nicely everything flowed. I was so happy how everything turned out! I wish we could do it all over again!

If you are looking for a beachside wedding venue, the Oceanview of Natant's reputation is well earned. We were originally concerned about the floorpan (dining hall & dance floor vs. bar room), but the set up could not have been more perfect for a wedding. Most of our guests... Read More danced, but those that did not want to were able to step aside and talk without feeling left out. Planning was seamless, and this is largely in part due to two stellar staff members, Allison (congrats on the recent engagement!) and Ralph. These two are fantastic, and went above and beyond for us throughout the whole process. We had our reservations while looking for a venue, but we could not imagine a better evening than the one we had at the Oceanview of Nahant.

I can't say enough to praise The Oceanview of Nahant. From the very moment we went to meet with Allison and plan our day, we knew it was the place for us. The location on the beach is amazing and the small details at the Oceanview are perfect for a special occasion. What makes...

I can't thank Allison, Caitlin, Ralph, Matt, and others enough for making our guests feel at home and for helping us (the brides) not think about a single detail - it was all done for us with so much care. One moment I remember was the happiness shown on each of the staff members faces.

If you are looking for a venue that makes you feel like their sole purpose is to host your wedding, which has countless offerings down to the smallest details, and will help you plan the wedding of your dreams, look no further than The Oceanview of Nahant. We chose to get... Read More married at Oceanview in the winter of 2015/2016 (for a September 2017 wedding) and were instantly blown away by the incredible views, quality of the venue, and the management/staff that made the process feel instantly personal. Since the time which we looked at the venue, countless renovations and improvements were made which look incredible. The Seaview Terrace, new entrance and paint scheme all add a much grander feel to the already stunning property that Oceanview has. The event went flawlessly, all thanks to the unbelievable staff that works at Oceanview. Big thanks especially to Matt and Allison who helped answer our countless questions, provided guidance on the timeline and details of our wedding, and made sure that no mistakes were made. Lastly, the FOOD. People still have not stopped talking about how incredible the food was at our wedding and I agree! The options are fantastic and everything was phenomenal. From the apps and stations, to the main course and our signature cocktails, whoopee pie party favors, s’mores and ice cream truck. Make sure you choose to do the Fire Pit finale at the end of the night. It was an awesome way to talk more with our guests and was definitely a highlight. We HIGHLY recommend this venue for your wedding and could not be happier with our choice to do so.

The Oceanview was only the second venue my now husband and I toured in our wedding planning process. We were done after that! I fell in love with this venue from the moment I walked up to the door to the welcome sign with our names on it. The outdoor setting is gorgeous and... Read More private and the physical facility is also very tasteful and classy. They were very thorough and helpful throughout every decision, even up until the day before when it was forecast to possibly rain when we had planned an outdoor ceremony. We are both super low key in terms of wedding planning, which I’m sure can be frustrating to vendors because we give so little direction. The Oceanview, and Allison in particular, helped us clearly sort through all the decisions we needed to make. We couldn’t have been happier with the results. We were lucky enough to have the rain hold off and hold a perfect outdoor ceremony. We opted for the clambake option, which was truly amazing. All of our guests were incredibly impressed by the venue and the food. I can’t count the number of “best wedding ever!” comments we received. The entire day from arrival to departure went off seamlessly for us. I couldn’t recommend this venue more!

The Oceanview is an amazing value! They have done an excellent job remodeling and offer pretty much anything you could be looking for in a reception. With all their options and add ons they can meet the needs of many different styles of weddings. The views are stunning! It was... Read More the first venue we looked at and as soon as we went upstairs and looked out at the ocean we knew it was it. You are guaranteed to get incredible photos! Inside is modern, but still has a romantic and intimate feel. We got married in a private ceremony then had our reception on a separate weekend. We did the clambake and it was a ton of fun. Our guests raved about the lobster. They also loved the deck and beach. The deck right off the ballroom is great because guests can enjoy being outside by the beach without missing the action inside. The service throughout the day was phenomenal. They were always bringing my husband and I drinks and food when we were too busy to even realize we were missing things. We are dying for someone else we know to have an event there so we can go back!

We had our wedding at Oceanview on 8/11/17. I cannot imagine a better place to get married. From the first time I walked into Oceanview over 15 months before our wedding I felt so taken care of by their staff. Allison was my primary contact and she always had an answer for even... Read More my tiniest of questions. She took her time with us, made us always feel comfortable and truly was an amazing resource throughout the wedding process. She worked with my often non-traditional work schedule and even helped me to get things done ahead of time when I knew work was going to pick up right before our wedding. Oceanview really offered us everything you could dream of - and even some things I would never had dreamt up but needed to have when I saw them. Over the 15 months we were regularly impressed by the improvements and new innovative wedding ideas Oceanview would post on their Facebook, only heightening our excitement when we saw each new improvement. On our wedding day, Ralph, Allison and Matt made us feel so taken care of and our families are still raving about the experience and the food. A bride doesn't want to worry about anything on her wedding day and I never once worried about a thing all day knowing that I had the Oceanview team behind me.

She was very good at reminding us of things that we may not have thought about, and she even came up with an awesome signature drink for us to serve to our guests! Two days before the wedding, we dropped off all of our wedding décor (guestbook, card box, place cards, etc.) and the Oceanview staff made sure it was setup perfectly on our wedding day. We had nothing to worry on our wedding day about thanks to Ralph and the rest of the staff. Ralph made sure that we were always on time and everyone was where they were supposed to be.

Also, you HAVE to try the raspberry champagne. We have had people that normally don’t like champagne asking us where to buy it because it is that delicious. We ended our night with a dance on the beach surrounded by our friends and family holding sparklers, and it was the most memorable moment of my life.
