About This Vendor

The Grand Hotel calls itself Cape May’s premier relaxation destination. Whether you envision a wedding celebration that’s traditional or trend-setting, festive or formal, intimate or grand, in a ballroom or on the oceanfront veranda, the Grand Hotel Cape May is uniquely suited to provide you with a storybook reception. The Grand Hotel Cape May is an all-in-one wedding venue offering beach ceremonies, waterfront views and accommodations for guests.

Cape May is a quaint island located at the southernmost tip of New Jersey. It is America’s oldest seaside resort and one of the best-kept secrets on the East Coast. If its Victorian charm isn’t enough to immediately win you over, the sprawling white beaches will surely do the trick.

Their ACPWC certified wedding consultant, Katlyn Mogavero, will help you every step of the way during your Grand Hotel Cape May wedding planning process. Tour the property to see the panoramic ocean views, indoor and outdoor pools and 172 guest rooms.
