My husband and I got married at the Chalfonte Hotel in May 2016, and we couldn't have been happier with the entire experience. Terry was wonderful to work with leading up to and on our big day. She's organized and detail-oriented. She answered all our questions and eased our minds. She definitely has things covered. She coordinated with our vendors and seamlessly arranged for the ceremony to be inside at last minute due to rain. The entire staff of the Hotel were wonderful. The service truly went above and beyond. We received so many compliments from our wedding guests not only about how beautiful and charming the Hotel is and how good the food was, but also how great the staff was. We are so happy we chose the Chalfonte Hotel for our special day, and we can't wait to return each year.

We cannot say enough about how wonderful our wedding experience was at The Chalfonte! We had our reception there 5/28/16 (Memorial Day weekend), and it was effortless, elegant, and so memorable! Terry and her staff are amazing to work with; every detail was noted, the service was excellent, and food/drinks were awesome as expected. Our family & guests are still raving over the cocktail hour (in the King Eddy and on the porch) and how large & delicious the dinner servings were (fried chicken & strip steak)! I was able to provide many of my own decorations & flowers which Terry & her staff then placed for me as we discussed. We are Cape May locals and recommend The Chalfonte to anyone looking for a smooth, seamless experience in a beautiful, historic location. Thanks again to Terry & her staff - they are truly the best of the best!

Our wedding weekend at The Chalfonte was beyond perfect! I've been visiting Cape May every summer since I was born, and as far back as I can remember I've dreamed about having my wedding in Cape May. Terry and the entire team at The Chalfonte (a few, but not all, of the wonderful people who come to mind: Lucille - the food was amazing!, Shane, Heidi, and Dillon) made my dream come true. Everything we asked for was never a problem, it was truly a seamless process.

From our arrival on Wednesday through our departure on Sunday we made some of the happiest memories of our new life together, and for that we will be eternally grateful.

Our guests had an amazing time as well - many of them joked that we should have our anniversary at The Chalfonte every year and invite them along to celebrate! :) I loved that every time I walked out onto the porch my family and friends were hanging out in the rocking chairs laughing, relaxing and having a great time. The Chalfonte made all of us feel at home that weekend.

Terry, thank you a thousand times over for making our dream wedding come true. You're patient, kind, very quick at responding to emails, and give a lot of really good suggestions! - our day would not have been the same if it weren't for you.

We will be back soon to visit, stay, and dine (July 4th weekend!) at The Chalfonte and make many more wonderful memories throughout the years.

All of our love,
Bridget and Brad Crawford

The Chalfonte was absolutely the perfect place for our wedding reception. Terry was amazing, she set everything up just the way I imagined it would look and was so sweet to work with! The historic look and atmosphere of The Chalfonte is so beautiful. The food was so amazing, that all our guests were still talking about it the next day. All of our guests had such a great time. I can't thank The Chalfonte enough for making our day so perfect and special!!!

What an unforgettable day!!! The Chalfonte was the first and only venue we looked at and I immediately fell in love. It's not your typical wedding venue, it's a trip back in time. I cannot rave enough about how beautiful the property is! The wedding coordinator, Terry is AMAZING! Most of our planning was done through emails and we met a few times to discuss details. She was always quick to answer all of my questions. I knew that my day would go smoothly because of her (and it did!) We DIY-ed most of our wedding so we brought down a ton of decorations and flowers! They gave us a spare room where we were able to store everything and work on our floral arrangements. We had a few friends and family who stayed at the hotel and it was so nice to sit on the porch in the rocking chairs and take in the whole weekend.

My husband and I got married at the Chalfonte on a beautiful Sunday evening. We were married in the backyard under the willow tree. The yard looks small, but it was able to fit all of our 92 guests (and there was still room!). It was such an intimate and lovely ceremony. The weather was perfect, and the sun was out all day. The hotel is so close to the beach that we were able to walk down for a few pictures. The reception took place in the Magnolia room and everything was decorated just as I imagined!! There was honestly not one thing wrong about the whole day. After the wedding, a bunch of our friends and family went into the King Edward Bar and mingled with some of the guests there and had a few drinks before heading to bed. It was honestly a weekend that I will never forget. Many of our guests are still talking about how wonderful the wedding was. My husband and I are already planning to come back next year and we plan to make it a yearly trip. Thank you so much Terry and the rest of the staff at the Chalfonte. You gave us our dream wedding!
