As a wedding photographer, I'm always on the hunt for venues that seamlessly blend stunning backdrops with an exceptional experience for couples on their special day. Recently, I had the pleasure of touring the Oceanview of Nahant, a scenic wedding venue located in Nahant, Massachusetts, and it exceeded my expectations.


With its prime location on 720 feet of coastline, Oceanview of Nahant offers breathtaking panoramic views of the ocean that provide an unforgettable setting. Imagine exchanging vows with the gentle sound of waves crashing in the background, or capturing magical first-dance photos with the sunset painting the sky in vibrant hues. The venue's private beach creates a backdrop that will make your wedding day truly special.


The beauty of the Oceanview of Nahant extends beyond its location. The venue offers a variety of elegant spaces to suit your wedding vision, and a bridal suite that's a bride's dream come true!

  • Beach Stone Terrace: This outdoor terrace provides a dreamlike setting for a ceremony overlooking the ocean.
  • Tent on the Terrace: For cooler New England months, the romantic Tent on the Terrace creates a whimsical and intimate atmosphere.
  • The Grand Hall: This majestic indoor space features picture windows that frame the ocean views, perfect if an indoor ceremony is your preference. The elegant design offers a sophisticated backdrop for your celebration. Transitioning to the reception, the Oceanview of Nahant's reception area is equally impressive. Imagine your guests mingling under the soft glow of chandeliers, while enjoying breathtaking ocean views through expansive windows. The space seamlessly connects to the outdoor patio, creating an opportunity for an indoor-outdoor reception experience.
  • The Lounge and The Suite: Oceanview of Nahant has thoughtfully designed these spaces to cater to your pre-wedding needs. The Lounge offers a comfortable and stylish area for guests to mingle and relax before the ceremony. Meanwhile, the bridal suite is a haven for the bride and her bridesmaids to get ready in luxury. One of the biggest bridal suites I've seen, this space features ample room for everyone to unwind and prepare for the big moments. Personalized cubby spaces add a thoughtful touch, allowing each bridesmaid to have their own designated area.


Oceanview of Nahant understands that your wedding day is all about you and your partner. They dedicate themselves to creating a personalized experience, catering to only one wedding at a time. This ensures you have their full attention to help you create a celebration that reflects your unique love story. The charming nautical details throughout the venue, like the fish chandelier and the gold portholes in the bar, add another layer of personality to your special day.


The Oceanview of Nahant is a photographer's dream. From the panoramic ocean vistas to the elegantly designed indoor spaces with their whimsical nautical touches, there's an endless array of backdrops to create unforgettable wedding photos.

  • Unforgettable Ceremony Locations: The Beach Stone Terrace provides a dramatic outdoor setting for vows exchanged under the open sky. Imagine capturing the raw emotion on the couple's faces as they say "I do" with the vast ocean stretching out behind them, framed by the venue's charming nautical details like the anchor archway or a sailboat gently bobbing in the distance.
  • Light-Filled Reception Spaces: The Grand Ballroom features expansive windows that bathe the space in natural light, perfect for capturing candid moments of your guests enjoying themselves. Plus, the seamless connection to the outdoor views allows for creative indoor-outdoor photo opportunities.
