An Elegant Oceanfront Wedding at the Sea Creast Beach Hotel in North Falmouth, Massachusetts

Amanda Vitols (26, an accountant) and Michael Meader (26, a police officer) went to the same high school, but never spoke to each other once.“While we were in college, our mutual friends would plan an annual white water rafting trip,” Amanda says. “One summer while we were both single during this trip, Mike had the courage to confront me on the deck and admit that he thought I was really cute in high school. Me, being the stubborn thick-headed girl that I am, rolled my eyes and walked back inside. Good thing Mike is persistent, and after a few more attempts I gave in and we decided to give it a go. Fast forward five years. Mike had planned a nice weekend getaway for just the two of us one weekend in December. We drove up through the beautiful white mountains, stopped at our favorite brewery, and he surprised me with a night at the White Mountain Hotel & Resort. Once we got comfortable and settled in, we enjoyed some chocolate-covered strawberries and champagne before he handed me a photo book that detailed our entire relationship which ended with a proposal. I couldn't have asked for a more romantic and intimate proposal.”The wedding ceremony and reception were held at the Sea Crest Beach Hotel. “Mike and I both wanted the wedding to be on the water and ideally located on Cape Cod,” Amanda says. “We found Sea Crest and I knew immediately that this was the location we would have our wedding. The wedding was a two-night, weekend affair and all guests were given a welcome bag with a detailed itinerary and goodies to help them through the weekend. Guests were welcome to join us after the rehearsal dinner and party into the night. The following day, all the guests were able to enjoy each other’s company either on the beach or on the golf course while the bridal party was busy getting ready.”
