What everyone is saying about us

I cannot recommend this venue highly enough. The setting is stunning, the reception area looked amazing on our wedding night, and the lawn was so much fun for our guests for cocktail hour. We continue to hear nothing but rave reviews about our venue selection. The wedding coordinator was such a pleasure to work with and did such a great job organizing everything. She was always very responsive and gave us some great referrals for our other vendors. I would recommend using Shining Tides without hesitation.


Our wedding ceremony and reception were recently held at Shining Tides and the venue was perfect from the first communication to the end of our wedding! The venue is a beautiful setting for a wedding or any occasion – the pavilion overlooks landscaped lawns, sandy beach and the ocean! We had the perfect summer afternoon/evening for our wedding and Shining Tides was the perfect setting. We give Shining Tides and their staff, especially Elizabeth, our highest recommendations!


Shining Tides is an absolutely beautiful location for a beach/ocean front wedding. From the moment we fist toured Shining Tides, we knew that this was the place we wanted to get married. The wedding coordinator is very resourceful, personable and professional. She is quick and knows how to handle situations on the spot. We LOVED working with her! We are so grateful and fortunate to have had her be a part of our special day. I would HIGHLY recommend Shining Tides as your wedding venue!


The wedding coordinator at Shining Tides is a wealth of knowledge. She is extremely helpful – right off the bat she provided a list of local vendors for lighting, dj services, cakes, flowers, etc. As a bride with a lot of decorations, and a specific vision of how I wanted the venue to look for my big day, she set my mind at ease. Our wedding day was so memorable and my husband, family & I were very happy with Shining Tides.
