Say ‘I do’ by the sandy shores at this classic Cape Cod resort
Imagine exchanging your vows while, in the background, the waters of Cape Cod Bay lap gently against the sand of a private beach. That’s not an impossible dream – it’s one of the real wedding venues to choose from at the Ocean Edge Resort & Golf Club, perched on the shores of the Cape. At the serenely private Bay Pines Beach, your guests (up to 300) can admire both you and the waters beyond, then adjourn to one of several equally lovely cocktail and reception sites, from a tent on the mansion lawn to a carriage house or waterview terrace. End your evening with s’mores by a beach bonfire. Spa services, exceptional catering and a bevy of activities including golf and tennis are part of the resort offerings.
