My husband and I had our 8/31/14 wedding at Wentworth by the Sea. Both our ceremony and reception were held on site, as well as our rehearsal dinner the night before, and our brunch the morning after. We both couldn’t have been happier with the experience we had from beginning to end while working with everyone at Wentworth. We worked most closely with Jaime Staples who is absolutely amazing. She is so kind and patient, and she’s honest, which you really appreciate as a bride during the planning process. Now that the wedding is over, I really miss talking to Jaime all the time – she was always available for me as well as my parents, who will also always have a very special appreciation for her. Each and every event we held at the venue as part of our wedding was absolutely flawless. We didn’t have to worry about a thing. We feel very lucky that we were able to share this special time in our lives with the wonderful staff and beautiful setting of Wentworth. This venue truly does offer all of the best and only the best in every regard.

Where do we even begin...

Our wedding at the Wentworth by the Sea Resort could not have been any better! The whole day was absolutely perfect. From the friendly staff, to the amazing food and the beautiful ballroom, our guests could not stop raving at what an amazing wedding it was.

We worked very closely with Jaime Staples, who met our every need. Her communication was so appreciated, and she kept us in the loop with every aspect of the process. She went over the entire package with us (multiple times) just to make sure that we understood everything. She was patient. She was kind. And on our wedding day, she had a smile on her face the entire day and handled every situation with the utmost professionalism. We were lucky to have her!

The Wentworth by the Sea Resort is the quintessential New England Wedding Venue. It has the beautiful historic architecture that makes New England unique, and the views of the ocean are breathtaking. If you are considering having your wedding here, I recommend making an appointment to visit. Once you see it, there is no other places quite like it!!

Spectacular!!! We had our daughter's wedding here and what an amazing experience and perfection throughout the wedding. Jaymie Staples, our wedding event planner at the Wentworth By-the-Sea hotel was superb! She was meticulous at every step and always made us feel we would be well taken care of and we sure were! She has excellent suggestions and recommendations that we truly appreciated and needed throughout the entire wedding planning process. The reception was amazing beyond our expectations - the food superb and the staff was so very professional and accommodating. The staff made our guests feel like they were individually taken care of and bent over backwards to make the evening flow smoothly. We did not have not even one glitch and our family enjoyed the wedding the entire time! The chef has quite the touch in the menus and we loved the petite fours - every detail from serving the dinner to the desserts was quite a display and delicious. Our guests raved about the food, the staff and the absolutely stunning room! Highly recommend the Wentworth for weddings! We truly had a wonderful experience and a Princess wedding, no doubt! Much thanks to such a wonderful line of staff and all those who made our day unbelievable at the Wentworth By-the-Sea! Top notch professional , meticulous with details, excellent menu selections and very, very accommodating!!

Our daughter's wedding at the Wentworth was everything she had hoped for. We held the ceremony and the reception at the hotel in addition to a Welcome Cocktail Party in the Solarium and a Farewell Brunch in the Garden/Terrace Room. The hotel made it possible for us to organize a golf outing the day before the wedding. Our event planner, Jaime Staples, was a delight to work with and offered ideas and alternatives to make each event a success. She is very calm, experienced and professional. Our biggest surprise was that although we expected the food to be good, it far exceeded our expectations both in preparation and presentation. Everything was excellent, but some highlights included the delicious and beautiful mini cupcakes prepared for the Welcome Cocktail Party, the very generous raw bar and the dessert station at the wedding reception. The banquet staff was outstanding and the Presidential Service really impressed. Our guests raved about everything. It was a great, fun weekend in a beautiful location. All of the hotel's preferred vendors were outstanding and very helpful. The majority of our guests traveled from other areas and thoroughly enjoyed the Portsmouth/New Castle area. A note to future brides -- the difference between a good wedding and a great wedding is in the details. It was the attention to details provided by the Wentworth and their preferred vendors that made our daughter's wedding great.

Our entire event was amazing from start to finish. Jaime Staples was lovely to work with over the course of about 18 months and went above and beyond to make our special day the most memorable. Teresa the catering manager was also incredible and provided individual, specialized service that made the day perfect. I can't say enough positive comments for the entire team at Wentworth by the Sea. I would recommend this venue to anyone and wish we could do it again!

Our experience was top-notch from beginning to end for our daughter's wedding at Wentworth by the Sea. From planning stage to the weekend of the event, attention to every detail was apparent. Rooms for our guests were superb. Beautiful decor, excellent food, top-shelf service, attention to detail superior. Catering Manager, Caitlin Sims, was fabulous to work with. Would highly recommend Wentorth for any occasion!

I chose the Wentworth by the Sea for my wedding venue because of its classic elegance and great reputation. From the very beginning they were very accommodating giving me several different package options and working with me to create one that worked for both my guests and my budget. The service at the Wentworth was outstanding and my wedding guest were floored by the quality of the food and the attention that is given to every detail. I worked with Caitlin Sims at the hotel and she was wonderful. She fulfilled every request and ensured everything went off without a hitch on the big day. My wedding was better than even I could have imagined and I attribute that in great part to the staff at the Wentworth.
