Planning a wedding in Ocean City, was by far, a fun and stress-free experience. The short of it: our beach front wedding (and reception) was held at The Atrium at the Golden Sands, our flowers were beautifully done by Ocean City Florist, our cake was deliciously created by Cake Art (in Salisbury), DJ Paul Parrinello played at our wedding (all the way from Pikesville), Ocean City’s own Rev. Eileen Dudley helped make our ceremony great and our rehearsal dinner was so graciously hosted by Smitty McGee’s Irish Pub in West Fenwick Island.
Eileen at the Golden Sands was very insightful, helpful and easy-going. Eileen had suggestions from table overlays to timing the ceremony with the sunset. This location has gorgeous views and is very military-friendly. Eileen helped us pull off the stress-free wedding we wanted within 6 months, as my fiance (now husband) was deploying shortly after our wedding date. The ladies at Ocean City florist were creative, easy to work with and ultimately produced beautiful purple orchid and white rose arrangements.
After a day or two of fun cake tastings in and around the Ocean City area with my willing aunt, Cake Art in Salisbury won us over. Ms. Susan Patt took her time to meet with us, draw various designs and offer fun suggestions (like graham cracker crumble around the base of the cake with our names to resemble sand). To this day, our family and friends still talk about the deliciousness of the cake (the European Buttercream frosting is an absolute must!). Our goal for the ceremony was for it to be meaningful yet fun and relaxed, and Rev. Eileen Dudley made it just that. If you’re looking for a place to host a laid-back rehearsal dinner, the staff at Smitty McGee’s Irish Pub in West Fenwick Island were very accommodating. We are already thinking about a 10-year anniversary party at The Atrium!
