Perfect Wedding Settings at the Ferry

Indoor and Outdoor Choices for Your Waterfront Wedding

If you're dreaming of a waterfront wedding, but not a fan of beach weddings, a wedding at the Cape May-Lewes Ferry might be the perfect choice for you. With bay breezes, beautiful sunsets, and scenic vistas,  waterfront weddings at the ferry let you wear a fabulous dress without getting sand in the bustle! Both terminal facilities have plenty of free parking and both indoor and outdoor options. In fact, recently ranked the Ferry as one of the 40 Most Unique Wedding Venues in the USA!

Cape May Venues

There are four great event spaces at the Cape May Terminal, including the Sunset Lounge (capacity: 100), The Gallery (capacity: 75), Bayside Green (capacity: 1500), and the Southwest Patio (capacity: 100).  And even though larger parties are welcomed particularly on the greens overlooking the bay, the docks and lounges are frequently preferred for brides planning smaller, intimate weddings of 20 or fewer. 

The Sunset Lounge

The Sunset Lounge has one of the best views in South Jersey. Set atop the Cape May Terminal with wrap around windows, the room overlooks the bay. In the evening, you and your party can experience the vibrant colors of a Delaware Bay sunset; in the daytime, you and your party will be energized by the clear views and energetic sunlight coming in from every direction. 


The Bayside Green

The Bayside Green provides great space for larger parties. Our outdoor green area can accommodate up to 1,500 and tenting can be accommodated.  If you're having a big bash, or want an outdoor beach-type wedding sans sand -- this is your answer.


The Southwest Patio

Set on a beautiful grassy field overlooking the water, it does not get much better than the Southwest Patio. In the evening, this patio looks out over the canal and is the ideal spot to watch the sunset. The water makes an epic background for special photo opportunities.


The Gallery

The Gallery, located on the second floor of the Cape May terminal, is great for weddings, business meetings, and more. The back wall is covered in windows, while the front wall is equipped with all the digital components you need to run an effective presentation. 



Lewes Venues

The 3 great event spaces at the Lewes Ferry Terminal provide views of the Breakwater Lighthouse along ferries and pleasure boats coming to dock nearby. Capacities vary with larger weddings generally planned with tents on Bayside Green, and more intimate weddding held on either the Finger Pier, or in the Sunroom 

The Sunroom 

The Sunroom, which overlooks the Delaware Bay, is a fun venue for events. The space accommodates 25 - 100 guests and is well-suited for cocktail parties, corporate events, as well as family celebrations. The glass walls create the feel of being outside, while maintaining a controlled (air conditioned!) environment. 



The Bayside Green 

The Bayside Green is a fantastic option for larger parties. The outdoor green area can accommodate up to 1,500 and tenting is a strong option for potential weather variables. Chef Ingrid Dellatoree and her  in-house catering staff love to bring their A-game to this type of party! If you're having a big bash, look no further than the Bayside Green. 



The Finger Pier

Perhaps the most charming venue in Lewes is also the most intimate. The dockside charm of The Finger Pier is unbeatable. Here's where dewy- eyed fathers walk their daughter down the boardwalk and can blame the bay mist for their damp eyes!  Brides design their uniqe canopies to create the perfect setting of their dreams.
