What Our Brides are Saying…

“My husband and I just had our wedding at this location. It was amazing!! A night we and our guests will never forget! Sherene and Tiffany were very friendly, organized, hardworking and outgoing while helping me with our wedding. While getting ready with my Bridal party I did not have to worry about flowers, cake, decor, tent set up, or catering. Sherene had it all taken care of. I had one outstanding and unique wedding. Addy Sea has one of a kind rooms. You’ll want to continue coming back (just like us) to experience every room. Room 10 is my favorite. I can fall asleep listening to the waves and then wake up to a beautiful sunrise over the ocean. Like sleeping on the beach but with a sleep number bed in place of the sand. Absolutely love this place.”

“Most amazing place to have a wedding! Me and my husband just recently got married here during Hurricane Joaquin and the staff was excellent at making all the necessary changes for our wedding. It went from being outside to completely inside due to the high winds and flooding, and it was one of the most fun and cozy weddings ever! The staff was so much fun, and made everything work seamlessly. All my guests are still talking about how much fun they had, and how amazing the food was! We had prime rib that was to die for! If you are looking to have a wedding at an oceanfront location, I highly recommend the Addy Sea. Maggie, Tiffany, Jason, Margot, and Peggy are excellent at what they do!
