Here is a list of the best Cape Cod wedding venues to make your beach wedding dreams come to life. Cape Cod is such a magical place to get married with its pristine beaches, nautical lighthouses, grassy dunes, and stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean. I used to go to the Cape every summer growing up so it’s no surprise I’m a huge fan of photographing in all its beautiful spots! Whether you are looking for a seaside celebration in classic Cape style or a luxurious waterfront venue with a private beach, the venues below cover them all. This guide provides an overview of each venue so you can start planning your Cape Cod wedding today!
