Oceano Hotel & Spa is a wonderful wedding venue coupled with great support from their onsite coordination team. I worked with Lauren and team on a mutual client's wedding earlier this year and they are professional and accommodating; really fun and easy to work with. As an event planner, I am blessed with the chance to work at many venues and with other onsite coordinators and I have to say that Lauren and team are on the top of my list for vendors that I would love to work with again in the near future. Lauren is proactive without being pushy, provides valuable info/ suggestions, and very helpful! Venue itself has a beautiful outdoor ceremony area and the ballroom for the reception is very pretty with minimal decor needed if you like elegant and simple decor. Highly recommend checking out if you are looking for a venue close by water with great onsite assistance!

We worked with Nancy at Oceano and she was wonderful, along with all the staff there! From day one, Nancy was amazing. She really cares about making sure that it is your wedding day. Clearly, she has done many weddings. Planning with Nancy was always fun. She was good at responding to emails and phone calls. Before the wedding, Nancy provided us with a tasting and the day of food was spot on! She allowed us to build our own menu -- we chose what ingredients we wanted and the chefs at Oceano put it all together and made it super tasty. We went with the vendors that Nancy recommended and they were all amazing. Nancy is also very willing to work with new vendors. Nancy ran our rehearsal and made our whole wedding party feel very comfortable about how the day of proceedings would go.
Our wedding day went so smoothly. Nancy provided us with a beautiful bridal suite to get ready in (which made for great photography shots). Nancy checked in on us and also gave us lunch.
The ceremony site was so beautiful. The backdrop of the trees and the harbor are very serene and make for great photos. We ended up having about 170 guests and they all sat very comfortably at the ceremony site. We had two handicaps and Oceano was able to accommodate them and help them feel comfortable.
Cocktail hour food was delicious and everyone enjoyed being in the atrium where there was natural sunlight that filled the room. The atrium later became a wonderful dance floor.
Our reception was in the ballroom which was beautifully decorated with all the details that we had discussed with Nancy. Nancy was able to project our powerpoint slideshow perfectly. Nancy and her staff actually ended up plating our dessert and arranged it very beautifully. The alcohol package was flexible. We had extra food waiting in our honeymoon suite at the end of the night in case we were starving!
Everyone at Oceano was just so thoughtful and made our wedding day so smooth and fun!

We have picked The Oceano Hotel & Spa for the location of our wedding reception. When we first visited we met with Jenn and she has been a pleasure to work with ever since. The location is wonderful and the hotel is classic and beautiful. We can't wait to celebrate our wedding at such a great venue! I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a venue who wants a beach atmosphere and the convenience of having a hotel to stay at. They are also in the works of building a brand new reception area which we are very excited about.

There aren't enough good things to say about The Oceano and it's staff. Our wedding was so PERFECT, and we couldn't imagine better service. We literally didn't have to think about anything, and our family/friends still rave about how wonderful everything was. The food is AMAZING, the chef is so talented and created my custom menu to exactly what I wanted. The rooms are GORGEOUS, and the staff are the most friendly and helpful people. We love going back to visit, and are looking forward to our next stay. W really can't thank them enough for making our dream come true.

I absolutely loved our venue. They were amazing. Jennifer Pickart worked with us and I absolutely adore her. She and the venue made the whole process soo easy for us. They are incredibly flexible and accomodating to your requests. They made the entire process and our wedding day amazing. I felt like everytime I asked if we could do something or if they had something, I always got a YES. They even have a ton of decor you can use and borrow for your big day if you don't want to go out and purchase everything yourself. I 100% recommend this venue to anyone and everyone in the market for a wedding venue!

If you want a great experience, a great location and the friendliest and most wonderful staff call and ask for Nancy! She made sure everything went perfect, was told to "turn my brain off" when we arrived the night before and she took care of everything! Her staff took care of setting up our center pieces, escort table (we just told her what we wanted) and our timeline of events. We did a food tasting prior and every meal was just as delicious during the reception and cooked perfectly! The passed appetizers during cocktail hour were amazing. The rooms at the Hotel are comfortable and beautifully decorated. Nancy made our wedding day so special and can't Thank her enough!

Written by the Mother-of-the-Bride:

I wanted to take the opportunity to write a review for the Oceano staff for their superior help in making my daughter’s wedding a huge success. We were all very pleased with their hard-working, gracious approach with helping before, during, and after the wedding. Our wedding planner, Nancy is excellent and I highly recommend her service for anyone considering to host an event at the Oceano Hotel. She graciously listened to all of our wants, while effectively executing them with her professional expertise. During the wedding, many of our wedding guest approached me to express the excellent service they received from the Oceano staff. My daughter, son-on-law, myself, and the rest of the wedding attendees were very impressed with the outcome of the wedding, and a huge part of that is due to the Oceano Hotel staff.
