Ocean City Maryland Wedding Venues

Ocean City Maryland is a brilliant spot for your beach wedding. The free public beach is ideal for priceless photos and memories for you and your guests. If you are planning a reception after your ceremony, I’d like to recommend the top spots at the beach.

The Oceanfront Courtyard Marriott is Ocean City’s newest hotel. Located on 15th street on the boardwalk, the second level atrium is ideal for cocktails and appetizers. Inside you’ll find the Captain’s Table restaurant. The Captain’s Table was a local’s favorite for over thiry years and has been completely renovated in this beautiful new building. The Macadamaia encrusted Halibut is spectacular!

Lighthouse Sound is a picturesque golf course in Bishopville. Located on the bay directly across from the Route 90 bridge, this venue offers gorgeous panoramic views of the Ocean City skyline. The short drive along St. Martin’s Neck Road from Coastal Highway is breathtaking. Ducks and geese abound in this natural setting. The rustic interior design includes an ornate fireplace, lofty ceilings and plush leather chairs. The Chilean Seabass is amazing!

Fager’s Island on 59th street and the bay offers a wealth of options. The upstairs offers fine dining with views of the bay. Owner John Fager imports the most exotic wine Europe has to offer along with an assortment of popular local craft beers. There is an outdoor beach for small ceremonies and receptions as well as a pier and gazebo that stretch out into the bay. Fager’s is renowned for their sunsets which are always accompanied by the 1812 Overture as the red sun sinks into the water. Every Monday in season is the their famous deck party with live bands, djs and a luau. Fager’s also owns to premier hotels within walking distance of the restaurant. The Lighthouse and the Edge both offer intimate Honeymoon Suites.

These unique Mediterranean themed properties are the most elaborate that Ocean City has to offer. Seacrets is the most famous business in Ocean City. Truly world renowned, this is the most exciting spot on the eastern seaboard. In addition to hosting it’s own radio station, Seacrets brings in national recording acts and DJs for its daily summer parties. Weddings at Seacrets usually take place on the north side of the island. Brides take a boat from the south side to the pier next to the altar. In the offseason, Morley Hall is available for rental as well. Saturdays are too busy for a Seacrets wedding, so plan for Friday or Sunday in the offseason. Seacrets is known for their signature drinks and Jamaican Jerk Chicken. The Grand Hotel on 21st st. has two banquet rooms to accommodate your reception. The curved fa├žade make it a beautiful backdrop for your beach wedding photos. The Grand sits on the boardwalk and is literally a ten second walk to the beach. The sixth floor dining offers dazzling views of the bay.

The Clarion Hotel has the largest fine dining area in Ocean City. The Crystal Ballroom seats up to 250 guests. There are two smaller venues for more intimate affairs. The Clarion just added a new outdoor pool to accompany its indoor swimming and cabana area. The cuisine at the Clarion is exquisite. They are annual recipients of the Spectators Choice award for their wine selections. Sommelier Richard Heubeck is renowned for his pairings. The Clarion showcases live bands daily inside and on the outside deck during the summer and indoors on weekends all year round.

The Carousel Hotel on 11th st. is home to Ocean City’s only indoor skating rink. During the summer they feature a daily Ice Show. The Carousel has multiple banquet rooms for different sized receptions. Behind the hotel is a lively patio bar that is a great staging area for the groomsmen to meet and unwind before the ceremony. Home of Seasons restaurant, the Carousel has been an Ocean City landmark for decades.

I’ve been fortunate to have a good relationship with all of these splendid venues. To find out more about Ocean City Beach Wedding Packages visit Rox Weddings & Events.
